Dear Elizabeth,

Please listen to Diane Cheryl - there's a big difference between "talking to someone" and talking to someone who understands the wounds left on your soul when you have an abortion.

I'm so sorry to hear that your only support is gone but I'm glad you found this forum. Here, you can see that you are not alone - no matter what your struggle, someone has been down the road that you're on.

Feeling isolated? Normal. Bad dreams? Normal. Resistance to the sight of pregnant women? Normal.

This is all very natural - you're in pain and confused and your life is upside-down all of a sudden. You feel like everything is lost.

It's really scummy and sad that so many men project their guilt about the part they play in an abortion onto the woman, but that seems to happen a lot. It's especially cruel in light of the pain that the woman is already trying to cope with. I wish they could see what they're doing when they try to make themselves feel better about the abortion that they supported or even demanded.

I pray that you will find healing and peace. Please find a counselor who is well qualified to help you work your way through this very particular kind of trauma. It IS going to be better, I promise - but I would also add that you can take the long road that some of us took or you can avoid our mistakes and resolve this with much less anguish and wasted time.

Keep writing - we'll stay with you as long as you need us.

You'll be in my prayers,
Elizabeth
