"You're life is over"

It all started June 15, 2000, the year I found out I was pregnant. The phrase that stuck in my head was You're life is over. This is what my family kept telling me over and over again. I was only sixteen years old. I was so upset with myself. I knew I had many plans for my life as far as school. I knew that raising a child wouldn't be an easy task.

Several months had passed my spirits were very low. I was so stressed out from being up all night and having to go to school early in the morning. Not to mention every morning was a struggle. I had to wake up at least two hours early to dress my son and myself. I also had to drop him off at daycare every morning before school.
