I just buried those feelings…
I have been diabetic since age 3. After being married for 2 years, at age 32,
I became pregnant with an IUD in my uterus. My gynecologist told me I would not
live through the pregnancy and advised an abortion, which he gave me.
I don't remember anything, because I was put to sleep. Before it, however, I
was very sad, because I had mixed emotions about it. My main concern, however,
was leaving my husband alone, possibly with a baby.
I was DEVASTATED afterward! I felt TOTALLY alone and LONELY. I guess I just
buried those feelings, because I never discussed them with ANYONE, including my
I took a PACE class, through my Crisis Pregnancy Center, and it helped
IMMENSELY. However, I am still dealing with the grief and anger of the ordeal.
Now, I still regret it completely; I love kids and desperately want
one of my own. My husband left me 6 months ago after 14 years of marriage. So I
am REALLY alone now!
