I still feel the pain of my abortion

I had an abortion on the 9th feb 2006. I still cry. I still feel pain as if it were yesterday. Time is healing me slowly but it is a long and tiring process. I miss my little girl and every day I wonder what if? I couldn't have supported my child and that seemed like a good reason at the time but now I realise anything is possible if you want it enough. If only I could turn back the clock. Editor's note: Thank you for sharing this with us. I can hear your heart is still hurting, even though at the time your mind thought it was the best thing to do. You are still feeling your loss, regrets and grief, and it can take a long time to recover. I do encourage you to visit your nearest centre or phone our freephone helpline 0300 4000 999 or use Online Advisor and talk with someone who understands your feelings. You will be met with kindness and support and will have the opportunity to work through our post-abortion recovery programme The Journey, which will help you to move forwards and bring you resolution from your loss. We’ll be thinking of you.
