“My mother is very negative. She has to dominate and control everything I do. In many ways, she’s a crappy mom,” says Samantha, claiming that her mom often starts arguments with her after she’s been drinking. “She calls me names -- whore, tramp. She’s told me before that I’ll never amount to anything but a stripper.”

Samantha says that when she became pregnant, her relationship with her mom worsened. “She threatened to push me down the stairs and stab me in the stomach. That made me so scared,” she claims.
Samantha, who suffers from type 1 diabetes, says she considered a medical abortion due to the complications she or her child may experience from the disease, but she chose to keep her child.
“Very much, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I needed my mom’s help but I’m worried how she’ll parent my child because she’s parented me in the wrong way,” Samantha says. “I want to strangle the hell out of her and never see her again.”
