I had an abortion in December 2020, it is now almost 10 months since, and I am still feeling extremely sad about it. It affects my relationship with my boyfriend and my friends as I am more distant.
I feel like something is missing. I never knew how much of a loss this would be/feel like. Almost everyday I think about it. I have flashbacks etc. I even got a tattoo to commemorate it.
People my age have started announcing their pregnancies and it’s so hard to see. I thought I was getting better, but I saw a pregnancy announcement from someone I know and now I feel like I’m back to square one.
I find myself avoiding social media. I am so sad and even jealous when I see pregnant people.
