I'm sorry

    I just had an abortion today. I found out I was pregnant last week and I knew I wanted to terminate immediately. I'm 18, soon to be 19 in April and I am a freshman at a large university. I feel selfish for my decision but I know that if there is ever a time to be selfish, it's now. I have 4 more years of architecture school and I could never give up my dream because of a careless mistake. I do not regret my decision but I feel so bad because I know one day I am going to want a baby and I'm going to love them so much and wonder how I could have done something so awful. I just needed a place to let everything out so here it is. Thank you all.

    Even for those of us who know we made the best decision we could given the circumstances and the situation at the time, it's a very real loss, hun. I would strongly recommend that you register for an account and join the very amazing ladies on the main boards. It's a good, safe place where we all understand what you are feeling. You aren't alone.

    I'm glad you're reaching out for support. It sounds like you have a good handle on your decision making as well as some things which may be difficult for you in the future. I hope you'll join us on the boards to get as much support as you need to cope with your feelings. It's a really wonderful and supportive place where you will be welcomed and treated with compassion.

    Hi

    I am sorry you're going through this. I was 18 when I had my abortion and I felt very similarly to you. I didn't know about the boards back then but am so glad I found them years later. Being with others who have gone through it helped me to understand what I was going through and to realize that everything I was thinking and feeling was normal.

    I would, like the others, encourage to make an account and join our community. Being a part of this group has changed my life :)

    Hugs,
    Viki
