I had conscious sedation, but I was fully aware of everything that was going on.
Being a single Mum is hard work and a lot of responsibility, so I am sure you have had a challenging few years with your present child. After 2 contraceptive failures you seemed to be very sure about your decision. It sounds as though your friend was hoping the relationship would work, and perhaps he was disappointed that your decision did not give him the chance to support you. I hope too that you don't have regrets, and that you are able to pursue your career.
