[> Subject: Re: I regret my abortion, can anyone help?

I am so sorry for your loss.
I had an abortion just over two years ago and it is still at the front of my mind. I don't think it is something that any woman gets over easily; especially if she felt any doubt when she was making her decision.
At the time I became pregnant, I knew what was going to "have to" happen - I felt I had just started out in my career; I was engaged to someone who didn't seem mature enough to be out of his teenage years, and I was still living with my parents - not the best start for a kid, but then we all give ourselves (or are told) those excuses, aren't we?! So I had already prepared myself when I heard my partner's words, "It's just not the right time for us".
I knew he was "right". But it didn't stop the doubt, the pain or the deep regret when I'd returned from hospital.
Afterwards, I went through a period of depression, somehow only visible to my closest family who were very supportive - apart from my partner!
My mother was my rock. To this day I still talk to her about it when I need to and she's sympathetic enough to listen over and over again. I'm very lucky.
But for the pain to still be this raw in my mind after two years on, she and I both know that I need more than a motherly chat and a hug. That is how I came across this site - I was looking for help - discussions, counselling, anything I can think of. Just don't stop here, there is so much help out there.
I hope you find some comfort. I'll be thinking of you.
