I am 29 and single. My boyfriend and I broke up about two months ago and two weeks after that we had a...grand finale. I even took the morning after pill but it didn't work. Now I just found out I am pregnant, about five weeks and I don't know what to do. I'm so scared I can barely think. I'm so afraid I can't afford this, that I am dooming myself to a lonely life. My family will be so furious with me, they'll try to talk me out of it and they're far away anyway, so they won't even be able to help me.
The father is much older (he's 58)...and not even divorced, yet. He's been separated for awhile. He wants me to keep the baby, but he already has kids and I think he sees this as his last chance. I don't know what to do. Can I afford this? Am I dooming myself and my child to a life of food stamps? Will any man ever want me or will they think I am ruined.
I'm so scared, I can't decide what to do and I'm all alone.
