My True Teen-Mom Story


13. January 9th, 2017


   ​I had an appointment with a chiropractor today because, since I'm pretty petite, the weight of being pregnant has done some minor damage to my back. I was talking to her about this and right from the start she just seems to be judgmental, which I'm completely used to by now. So I dropped the subject of Savannah and tried to keep conversation elsewhere when she asks, "so how do your parents feel about you having a baby of your own?" to which I responded, "My mom's proud that I'm stepping up and taking care of her."  

She SNORTED and said "Hm, proud. I wonder if she would use the same word."  So I just said "excuse me?" And the thing she said next is the part that pissed me off the most.


She raised her hands like I HAD OFFENDED HER and said "Well, no offense, but I wouldn't want my daughter thinking I supported her having a child. But every family is different, I guess." At that point I'd just given up trying to defend myself. I've only been a teen mom for three months but it doesn't take too long to learn that no matter how great of a parent you are, if you're a teenager, society is going to look at you as a piece of shit and there's nothing you can do about it. I just hate that some people have the nerve to blatantly disrespect me to my face. I'm damn proud of being a teen mom because I actually DID something with my life. While a lot of other teenagers my age are just partying and sitting around in their parents' basement getting high, I'm doing something more. I'm raising and caring for a life that I created. And I definitely feel better doing this than I did a year ago when I was one of those teenagers partying and doing stupid shit. I don't care what anybody has to say about me. I'm just doing what I have to do to make my daughter's life better. I DO plan on going to college and I AM going to graduate. My life isn't about me anymore, it's about my babygirl.


I will definitely be finding a new chiropractor. I cant handle that much judgment every other week.
