Abortion Regrets

I wrote on here a year ago, telling about my abortion experience in 2013. I’d like to share about my life and what I'm going through now—two years later, just in case anyone is in two minds of what to do. Please understand that in no way am I telling anyone what is right and wrong. I feel it is your own choice, but please, if you are in two minds, wait until you know what you want to do.

I lost my best friend in 2011, suffered chronic depression and anxiety, self harmed, had an eating disorder, and was bulimic. My life was not going very well. I got pregnant in early June 2013. I had no morning sickness but felt a little off. I just thought it was my period though. I used to get it the 18th of every month at around 10am, without skipping a beat. I knew when it'd be here exactly. I found out I was pregnant on the 18th of July because I knew it was not normal to not have my period. I told my friend. After school, we took a test and straight away two strong lines came up. All I could do was cry. My family is going to hate me. I've only just started dating him. I'm only working part time. My partner is only an apprentice. What am I going to do!? The next day was a Friday, and I told my boyfriend. He was supportive and said whatever I chose to do, he’d stick by me. Stupidly enough I told no one in my family except my dad, who I hadn’t been talking to for a few years. I thought he'd help me. All he did was call me a slut and book an abortion...
