I confess that when I was 14 I was very promiscuous and had sex with someone that I shouldn't have. Unfortunately the condom was not removed properly and I became pregnant.
Because both of my parents were very abusive towards me I felt like I had no choice but to try to go alone and try to keep the baby away from them. Until next time I wasn't perfect enough..
I quit smoking cigarettes and started eating healthy until I was returned to my parents who noticed something was up. My dad beat the shit out of me after an argument about living arrangements and I was puking for days.
At that point I was 15 weeks along and decided that I have an abortion. It was excruciating and because of him I will never forgive him. It was painful and made me sick for a long time.
Whenever I look at him I just want to throw up!
That's my confession. I think he's a piece of shit.
