After so many years of pain 'The Journey' has given new meaning to my life
In 1969 at sixteen years of age I was subjected to a Hysterotomy (the foetus being removed by caesarian operation). Then I was seventeen weeks pregnant and quite religious! Secrecy was the order of the day, lies were told to cover the shame.
It was hardly surprising that I felt such guilt and shame
I believed that God had abandoned me, for the hideous act carried out on my body. I have suffered mental health issues all my life, yet firmly believing that no one could help me.
41 years have passed and the pain still RAW!
Recently I undertook 'The Journey' through Kings Care
My counsellor gave new meaning to my life and I began to express my emotions in Poetry. This proved to be a great comfort and release.
My wish is for others blighted by the same horrific operation, no matter how many years ago. Go and seek help, you will be astounded.
