Hi, I am 26 years old, single mother to a 2-year-old, and married to a narcissist.

My husband was unemployed, abusive (physical, verbally, and emotionally) and a drug addict. Last month, he got arrested and in put jail for domestic violence.

For 2 weeks I was sick — vomiting, loss of appetite, tiredness, and couldn’t work. Also, I had to take care of my child, which was very hard. I went to the ob-gyn, and the Doctor sent me to the ER because I looked bad. I stayed at the hospital for a week and I realized that I can’t do it.

I don’t want to be a single mother again (no offense). I don’t want to bring a baby into a broken home again. If my husband was being a good husband, working, a family man and supporting, I would keep the baby, but I can’t. I went thru enough trauma.

Anyway, I went to planned parenthood (great service), and it was smooth and fast. After the abortion, sometimes I feel okay and sometimes I feel sad. My husband is mad at me and told me that it was my fault and I was wrong. However, I know that I made the right choice for myself.

You deserve nonjudgmental
after-abortion support.
