Ready or Not

I sit clueless in my dreary and dark room. Nobody's aroung to help, or even to prepare me for what I'm about to go through. It's only been two months and I'm already gaining weight and getting gawked at by people who don't know me, or my story. I'm constantly at home, alone. My friends seem to be embarrassed of me and my boyfriend, too. feel like my family is dis-owning me because of something I didn't plan on happening. I'm 17, a senior in high school, and was on my way to doing great things in my life. But all that's changed now and my mother hasn't let me forget it. I'm going to be a mother soon, a teenage mother! I don't know what to do, or even what to think. I have no idea how to raise a baby and in 7 short months, I will be. Maybe even as a single parent. What am I going to do? I can't take care of a baby, I'm still a kid myself. I'm not ready for the responsiblity,I can't do this. But I have to do this..
