  • i had it bad and i am with you i will never do it again. i have a 2yr old. my firsts would of been twins. that is something really hard to get past. but life goes on. i do think about those babies evry single day of my life and i will every single day of my life but i have figure out i would never had my life it would be completely different and they would of been close to 11 yrs old now. i found some support online and went through something like a 12 step for abortion trauma. it really helped. its hard and you ar right you can not change the past but you are very strong and we are not alone.

  • I never went through any trauma but I know many do. I'm glad you are moving on. There are a few abortion support groups here on CM you can search for, to share your story.

  • I went through it some but in my heart I knew it was the best thing at that time in my life.I went on to have other children but I will never ever forget that one.Its been 7 years now.Would have been 6 this coming July.I think its something that you end up pushing in the back of your mind and find solace in yourself.I never talk about it with anyone. Once in awhile I make a comment on here when someone asks a question like yours. But thats it.Forgive yourself and move on with your life. You can't change the past.

  • I have never had an abortion but I have a friend who did right after High School. She had the post abortion trauma too. It was 22 years ago.

  • Well, they don't want anyone to be able to judge their members for their choices or harass them so they can't let just anyone in. Those groups are something like a safe haven.
