Hi Everyone, I am a total mess....in California

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I lost my mom four months ago therefore I incredibly grief stricken. I am an unmarried stay-at-home-mom/ full-time student. Possibly pregnant after one mistake after being abstinent for a year!! !and a Sunday school teacher :( A lot of things are going on in my life and have been for sometime which I am sure everyone here may be able to relate to. I am a new Christian (1 Year), originally raised as a Buddhist and so I am in not only having a crisis of identity from the loss of my mother, but prior to that I had a crisis of faith, overall I seem to be experiencing a serious mid-twenties crisis. I am 25. 

 

I am loyal, forgiving, and honest. I love my daughter, she is 6. I love my partner, he is sweet, kind, loyal, and dedicated, though he hasn't popped the question, and before becoming a Christian this was something I was not worried about, but now, I feel pressured to get it over it! Is that good or bad? I am sure something maybe a rye with it. Nevertheless its a pressure that seems to be building every Sunday, at some point it has to happen right?

 

I am a blogger. I love books & reading. Career wise I am still lost, though right now I am studying Biology & Psychology. I guess I just want to get to know other mothers, ones that maybe a bit neurotic like me.

 

I hope I didn't offend anyone,  I am just always honest about myself, it's the best cure.

Welcome to Mothering! I'm sorry for your loss. I'm not sure which forums you've found so far, but we have a Grief and Loss forum that might be helpful to you, and in the Spirituality Forum there's a thread for Crunchy Christian mamas where you might feel at home! And we have a Books forum as well... smile.gif
