My partner told me she was pregnant just before my 17th

My partner told me she was pregnant just before my 17th and I couldn’t cope with the stress. I ended up resorting to alcohol and drugs. Meanwhile my partner told me she never wanted to see me again. Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in…you write very briefly but it sounds as if there is a great deal of pain behind what you have said. Perhaps you don’t find it easy talking about your situation to anyone, but I think that is what you might find helpful right now. You could ring the helpline initially and talk to someone confidentially, even anonymously, if you wish.
