I had an abortion 2 months ago and I can't get over it.

I had an abortion about 2 months ago and I can't get over it.
I think about it everyday and what's worst is I wanted the baby so much but my boyfriend didn't want the baby at all. He said we were too young(I'm 15 and he's 18) and he didn't have a job.
I think if he wanted it I would have kept it.
He seemed to think I wanted all this to happen because I always used to say "I can't wait to have a baby". I try to talk to him about it but he just ignores me.

I cry all the time but he's just too selfish to think about my feelings.

Even while I was going though the abortion he didn't care, never phoned me-nothing. Then when it was all over he came back. I even asked him if he was upset about it and he said nope, I hate him so much but I can't be without him.. I feel so alone I don't know what to do.
My sister's also just had a baby which makes it x10 worst for me. I want my baby back so bad, I'd do anything to turn back the clock and do what I wanted to do.

Editor's Comment

You are feeling sad and grieving for your lost hopes and dreams. It is very hard when you feel that you have been pushed into a decision that you did not want, and you have to live with the consequences of that decision. Your sister's baby is a constant reminder to you of what you have lost. I think it is important that you talk to someone about your feelings, and try to work through some of these painful emotions.
