I had an abortion on the 22nd of August and took it extremely hard.

I had an abortion on the 22nd of August and took it extremely hard. I felt guilt every second of every day since. It’s ruined and my relationship with my boyfriend and my head is constantly filled with it. For my own sake I purposely became pregnant again just to feel the comfort of another child but sadly lost it on the 22nd of December. With a lot of other things going on in my life, I’m finding it extremely difficult to cope with any of it. Please help me to get my head on track because I can’t do it myself.
