My story

by Anonymous

February 2, 2021

It was the day after my 21st birthday I found out I was pregnant, I thought I was hungover but I took a test as I had a gut feeling something was wrong. I had been with my boyfriend only a month and we were already doing long distance. It was the hardest day of my life and I felt completely alone. I have never spoke to anyone but my partner about it and still have never spoke to my family about it and often feel they know and judge me.I often feel shamed about having an abortion but still believe it was the right decision for me. The nurses who helped me honestly never judged or made me feel worse, they truly supported me through everything. I’ve struggled dealing with my emotions and speaking out about my story, I wish I could talk to someone who has gone through this without the embarrassment or shame attached. I’m so happy I’ve come across this page, I’ve never felt there was a place I could talk or even have other stories so similar to mine.

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