As requested; My ex gave birth to a black baby (I'm a white male)
Like the title states, I'm a 23 year old white male and when I was 21 my girlfriend at the time (who I thought I had impregnated) gave birth to a black baby. Kind of a difficult subject to talk about for me but I thought it would be rather therapeutic to share and there seemed to be a general interest. The incident that occurred changed me as a person. I fell into a deep depression afterwards, went to rehab and was hospitalized for mental heath reasons. I don't really know how to provide proof, my brother is a reddittor who can co-sign for me. If a mod could PM me that would be swell.
EDIT*** this is a throwaway account. I'm going to go have a smoke now, I'll be updating this through the night. Just wanted to thank the reddit community, this has been really therapeutic for me. Haven't had the opportunity to tell my side without feeling shameful. Thanks guys!
EDIT2*** WOW. Awesome questions. I've got an Inbox completely full of inspiring messages that I'm printing off so I can read them when I get down. Thanks for the outpouring of love. I'm going to sleep now but I'll update any new questions tomorrow morning!
