I was pregnant and panicked - what I'd done hit me the day after the abortion

By anonymous on 03/01/2019

I found out I was pregnant and panicked out of my wits. I cried everyday, couldn't sleep, had major anxiety and felt very alone.

I have always known I would not get an abortion in whatever circumstances but then I did.

And suddenly it hit me, what I had done, a day later. It's as if I had been in a trance before and regretted it immensely.

No-one tells you how much it weighs you down. It's been 3 months but my life is just grey and void now.

I never told my partner and when he found out he has been extremely cold towards me. Everything just hurts now, I cry everyday wishing I could turn back time.
