Content Warning: mention of suicide

ITS YOUR STORY NOT THEIRS! My story may not be as bad as some. I’ve suffered from clinical depression and bipolar 2 disorder since before I could remember. So you can only imagine what I went through mentally but luckily my mom is my best friend and my support system. If you had a support system. You already won. My story started with a man that I am currently still in love with but am not in a relationship with…yes it’s one of these lol. Does he know? No. Will he ever know? No. Some of you wonder, well why didn’t you tell him then if y’all are still doing whatever it is you’re doing? Because. Same as a lot of other girls I’m sure. I was scared of the reaction. We weren’t together which made it all the more hard. I’m 26. Some may think that’s too old to have an abortion. You’re never too old. If you’re not ready, you are not ready. That doesn’t make you any less of a person. It’s been 3 months and it crosses my mind everyday and probably will be for the rest of my life. Just know that you are not in this alone and if you result into trying to take your own life…like I did…think about him for a minute. Is he suffering? Probably not. So why should you suffer. You are a beautiful soul and don’t ever forget it. Stay strong babys!!!

Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
