After a devastating break up, I was left alone with the loss of a baby I never expected.

For something that was so wrong in a time of loss it was the worst experience I have ever been through in my life.

I am 17 years old. I don’t know how to cope when I think of the nights I dealt with this alone. I may have not been ready for a child at this age, but the loss of my own and who I thought was my love was unreal. I cannot bear to see his face because I couldn’t even get a text.

I’m not sure if this is a story worth sharing but there isn’t a day where I don’t go through this.

This year I will stay strong on my own.

    I’m so sorry to read this story of loss, K. – and do apologise that we didn’t spot it earlier. You have been through so much pain – the loss of the person you loved and of the child you might have had together. It is a huge amount of sadness to bear alone at any age, and it must be desperately hard for you.
