i had an abortion 10 years ago when i was 16..i saw no other option. i knew my boyfriend would not support me & i was too scared to tell my parents. my boyfriend left me the week after the abortion anyway so i was right about him…
i felt so much guilt i attempted suicide, went on for counselling which i found did help me. i managed to put it to the back of my mind but it IS THERE all the time.
i went on to meet someone get married and have 2 beautiful children. i didnt think i deserved this happiness.
18 months ago i had a miscarriage & I know that this is my payback…
my marraige has subsequently ended and i know that i will never ever get over the abortion and the empty feeling that i have carried for 10 years….
I am so sorry for your loss. I am 16 and have never had an abortion, so I cannot begin to imagine the pain you must be feeling… Like a part of you is missing. This past summer I was admitted to the hospital for a suicide attempt and I am now seeing a counsellor for my depression and ED. If you ever want to talk im always here. Take care hun.
