I never thought I would read a story so similar. I was just about to start university when I found out I was pregnant.
Editor’s note: Thanks for sharing your story with us…You obviously had a huge shock when you found out you were pregnant, and felt the pressure of your circumstances weighing heavily on you. It sounds as if something much deeper than your response to your circumstances was surfacing when you changed your mind. All you wanted was permission from your partner, wasn’t it, but when that wasn’t forthcoming, you felt you had no option. Going through with the termination has created a huge doubt in your mind about the quality of your relationship, so you are feeling loss on two levels – your baby and what you thought your relationship was. It seems your heart is in pain and needs some loving care and attention right now. Contact your nearest centre for some support, or ring the helpline or use Online Advisor to talk it through with someone who understands.
