I had an abortion just over year ago. It still hurts every day.
Editor’s note: Thanks for sharing your story with us…You have obviously just been through an anniversary of your abortion experience, so your thoughts are naturally turning towards your abortion experience right now. It sounds as if you have a deep regret, as well as feelings of guilt, and your heart is not letting you rest until you have given it the attention it needs. It’s normal that your heart is making you feel this way – it’s simply saying to you, ‘I need some healing!’ You have been hurt by your abortion experience – your heart is acknowledging the loss and pain you feel and trying to let you know.
You don’t have to just learn to live with chronic emotional pain – there is hope. Your first step has been to tell your story on this website; your next step is to contact your nearest centre and make an appointment to begin The Journey, our post-abortion recovery programme. If you don’t have a centre near you, you can also use Online Advisor for ongoing post-abortion support. You can do it.
