How did you do it? (Possible Trigger) warning

Two days ago I went in for my abortion, I was at 13 weeks. I was and still am positive I made the right choice for me and my family. The fact I already have a baby made it really hard to go though. I do feel relieved, but at the same time I'm feeling so many other emotions and I'm not tryring to call out of work until I feel better, we struggle enough as is and I can't afford to lose my job. How did you handle your emotions after an abortion? What were you feeling afterwards? I feel everything from guilt to sadness, numb, angry, empty etc and th mood swings are relentless. I need advice please

{{{{{HUGS}}}}} I have not had an abortion, but I worked in a women's center where these were done and have talked to many ladies who have had abortions. What you are dealing with is normal. It will take time and you need to grieve. Please, and I know this is easier said than done, but try not to keep beating yourself up. You did what you needed to.

I wonder if you could talk with your GYN or maybe a counselor just for a little bit?

I've never had an abortion, but don't forget you're also having huge, sudden hormone changes. Give yourself time.

I'm so sorry for your loss and pain. Nobody has a right to judge you. Your body ,mind and spirit have been through a difficult  trauma and you will need healing in all three aspects of yourself. It would be a benefit for you to seek some counseling to help you during this difficult time. I will say a special prayer for you tonight.
