I feel alone :(

    I had an abortion on the 5th of March 2016. The abortion was not forced, but looking back I was brainwashed and pushed into doing it by my then partner. I am now suffering from depression which is not letting me get on with my life. I feel numb, uninterested , and cannot eat or sleep well. Abortion is a taboo subject where i live and counselling sessions are zero to none. My parents do not know about it and I am afraid my friends would judge me. I have no one to turn to and i feel so so guilty of what I have done. Os there any way I can actually start feeling better? Please?

    Everything you mention feeling is very familiar to most of us, Jan............you are far from alone. I'd strongly recommend that you register for an account and join us on the main boards as the Guest board is only seen by volunteers and Admins.

    It can and will get better, and it can help more than you may yet realize to talk in a good, safe, neutral environment with women who understand because they've been there.

    Wishing you peace, dear.

    I second what Buckette has advised: to register for an account. The amount of comraderie and support is amazing. Connecting with others who have been or are where you are is so powerful. Reading and knowing I wasn't alone and wasn't off my rocker in feeling what I was feeling was so helpful for me in my healing. I hope you will join our community and find the healing so many of us have.

    Hi Jan

    I am so sorry you're going through this. As the others have said what you're feeling is very familiar to us all here.

    I was hesitant to sign up for an account at first but it was and continues to be the best gift I could ever have given myself. With an account you'll have access to many more boards and the support of all the members here.

    I hope you'll join us!

    I got an abortion the same month. My ex boyfriend showed me his true colors and completely stopped talking to me. He is moved on now and I am still dealing with residual feelings. I feel the same as you do. Uninterested, alone, unhappy, shallow, hate, furious, angry ... but I want to tell you your not alone. You have learned a very valuable lesson and you are better off without him. There wasn't a great future with him. You need to know that. You should use this time to better yourself. Love yourself. Know your not a bad person. And you did nothing to deserve this. Become selfish, focus on your happiness. You been through a lot so you just have to give yourself some time and surround yourself with positivity and your future will be bright. Don't look back just keep looking forward.
