    My name is Alissa.
    9 years ago I had an abortion, I was only 14 at the time. I am now 23 and things are seeming to get worse. I see all my old friends having babies and having a family but I struggle with the thought I can never get over what I've done. I have never met anyone with the same situation and I really would love to talk to someone. Please, if you know what I'm going through, talk to me and help me. PLEASE

    Again I would urge you to create an account here. We all understand these feelings and with our huge membership you will find plenty of people to talk to, and also perhaos find some people who are in or were in a similar situation. You are definitely not alone.

    Alissa,
    I understand that feeling I had an abortion a little over a year ago and it changed my whole life. And now I feel like all my friends are moving on and having babies and getting married and I feel stuck in these thoughts and feeling like I'll never be able or allowed to move forward and have a baby and a family of my own.

    Lluvi, I recommend you, too, register for an account. We have forums where you can discuss things like future family planning, triggers, friendship issues after an abortion, etc. You will receive so much support and I hope you will join us.

    I too recommend you register for an account Lluvi. It's a good, safe place where everyone understands and no one is ever judged. This board is only seen by guests, Admins and volunteers.

    I can only strongly recommend what has advised.... you have come to the safest place I know, only you need to know you've joined. Not only will you be accepted, you'll be nurtured by safe, sound people who have nothing but your best interests in sight.

    My name is Alissa as well. I had an abortion in 2006 and my experience post abortion was horrific. I was not prepared for the hormonal imbalances at all. I just wanted to tell you that I sometimes feel sad too. I can't say whether or not it's normal or common to have those feelings but what I can say is that I am so sorry you're feeling that way. If I were to guess I think a lot of women miss the child that they chose not to have. I do. For sure. From one Alissa to another, im so sorry. Chin up, hug around the neck. Tomorrow is a new day.
