After the abortion things changed, I changed, I didn't feel like myself anymore

I had an abortion 2 months ago.

I didn't expect I was having a baby. I was so worried that my period did not come for a month. But I thought it was just stress as I was having my undergraduates exam.

More stories in the abortion category.

The day that I found out I was pregnant was horrible. I knew I can't do it, I'm not financially stable, I'm a foreigner studying in the UK, I don't see myself as a mother yet. Then I decided to have an abortion (pill).

Things changed and I've changed. I didn't feel like myself anymore since then. I didn't attend any of my lectures for almost 3 weeks, I was disappointed.

I regret what happened. If I could turn back time, I would. I really would.
