After your abortion... user banned

Were you really depressed but comfortable with your decision? I literally JUST got out of bed, and it is 2am here. I went to sleep at 5pm. I can't eat or talk without crying at all. But I keep trying to imagine what if I came home today and was still pregnant, how would I feel. And I am at peace with the decision I made. I just feel guilty because it was still a living thing, with my DNA. I know I will get better...Just looking to see how others felt and if anything made you feel better at all?

i havent had one.. but i have known people and yes they felt this way.. i asked them what helped and the only thing they said was time..

try doing fluffy things like watching kids movies or romance movies drink some tea..
take a shower and listen to music..

these are things that have helped my friends and myself.. try and do things to keep stuff off your mind.

not to undermine the true emotions involved with the procedure and everything surrounding but your body will still go through a drastic change following the procedure. just as if you delivered there will be a pretty quick hormone shift which will be comparable to 'baby blues.' you may be super emotional, depressed, weepy and feel as if its for no reason. i would strongly suggest not being alone right now if you're going through this. it can be much harder then necessary. i wish you the best, hugs!!

Quoting xXSaiBabyXx:" Aw, hope you feel better soon..why did you abort?"

That's not an appropriate question.

After my abortion, I immediately started crying. I was depressed for a while and bounced back. But every now and then, I cry because I miss it. Miss not knowing it and not carrying my little one. I cry because I still feel guilty because of my upbringing. I cry because I know what it's like to carry a child. It does get easier with time and hurts less and less. But the longing of wanting another is still there.
