Best decision I ever made.

I was 20, and in a long term relationship with an emotionally abusive alcoholic who was 5 years my senior. I knew immediately that I did not want to keep it, but I still felt very alone and didn’t have any close friends at the time to help me. He drunkenly announced that I was pregnant and having an abortion at a party with his friends. I didn’t have any insurance and there was no welfare based medicare at the time, so my boyfriend sold one of his guns to pay for it. When it came time to go through it at home, I was alone. My boyfriend was downstairs getting drunk at the neighbor’s. When I woke up the next morning, I felt like the biggest weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Best decision I ever made.
