Drunk

Questions and discussion about sexual or other abuse or assault, and support and help for survivors.
Forum rules
This area of the boards is expressly for support and help for those who are currently in or have survived abuse or assault. It is also for those seeking information or discussion about abuse or assault. Please make every effort in this space to be supportive and sensitive. Posts in this area may or do describe abuse or assault explicitly.

This area of the boards is also not an area where those who are themselves abusing anyone or who have abused or assaulted someone may post about doing that or seek support. We are not qualified to provide that kind of help, and that also would make a space like this feel profoundly unsafe for those who are being or who have been abused. If you have both been abused and are abusing, we can only discuss harm done to you: we cannot discuss you yourself doing harm to others. If you are someone engaging in abuse who would like help, you can start by seeking out a mental healthcare provider.

I ended up going to the doctor and it didn’t have a heart beat

I see! Are you ok? Did the doctor say what the next steps would be?

I’ve seriously just be sleeping a lot because I’m living in a shelter and there isn’t much I can do because of curfews and things like that.

What emotions have come up for you since finding out that the baby didn't have a heartbeat?

You mentioned you are currently staying at a shelter, when do you leave to go stay with your bio-mom?

Sadly I’m not able to because my mom said that her home was too full. But I’m okay with the shelter because I’m able to sleep which is what I needed. As of right now there isn’t much emotions yet

That sounds like an awful lot of big stuff to be dealing with right now, especially the sudden change in plans with your mom.

Is there a particular type of support you're looking for around any elements of this right now?

It sounds like, then, that some sound next steps for you would be to reach out to the staff at the shelter and have them help you connect to whatever local resources (mental health, physical health, or both) that you feel you need right now, as well as ask them for support in deciding what your next steps will be in terms of finding a safe living space.
