My abortion was at home yesterday

I’m 21 years old in my senior year of college. Have been with my boyfriend for only a year & I wound up pregnant. I found out I was pregnant at 6 weeks & 1 day. I was so happy to hear I was pregnant. I’ve always wanted to be a mother. Soon after, reality hit & I realized I couldn’t be a mother yet. I’m not financially ready, stil love at home with my parents & didn’t want to be a burden to them. My bf is only 19 years old & doesn’t know what he wants to do in life. I had to make the saddest decision of my life. I had the abortion at home yesterday & it was the most painful thing to me physically. I was in so much pain. I feel very guilty for what I did but deep down, I know it’s for the better.
