My Escape

by M.W.

March 13, 2020

When my now ex-husband and I got pregnant with our much wanted second child, I suffered from hyperemesis (severe, constant nausea). I became unable to perform my “wifely duties” such as making his lunches and morning coffee, cooking, laundry and housecleaning. He became so emotionally and verbally abusive that I decided if I was ever going to escape that abusive marriage, there was no way I could do it as a mother of 2. I made one of the most difficult decisions of my life and aborted the sweet life growing inside me. I had the procedure done alone and silently sobbed the entire time. I am now out of that marriage and focusing on healing the wounds he left, and things are getting better as time passes.

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