The mental anguish stays forever
I was single and living at home and the man involved was married and my mom's
friends had her convinced that she would be saddled down watching the baby.
The physical part was nothing. It hurt for awhile then the pain was gone. The
mental part was the hardest and I still carry the scars, and the pain is still
I changed my attitude. I resented my mom and I vowed that as long as she
lived she would never have any grandchildren, a vow that I'm sorry I kept.
How do you deal with it! It's hard. I talked to close friends and try to
forget. Every time I look at my son I still feel the bitter[ness] I had 15 years
ago. Nothing in the world has helped…
My abortion has changed my life. Every time I look at my son I think back
about what would my son or daughter look like. Also, I have tried to talk to
friends who were considering on having an abortion. The physical pain will go
away so easily. The mental anguish stays forever.
