Autumn's Story

Hi, my name is Autumn, I just had to deal with an abortion. I had always been against them, and I was the one who said "I'll never do that." But the truth is I had too, it was my only choice. I'm having a lot of trouble dealing with it, but I know I made the right decision, but it truly is one of the hardest things to go through, and it seems that no one understands why I'm so upset all the time. It's only been a month but yet it's really hard. I just knew in my heart I wasn't going to be able to give my child, everything I wanted to give them. Right now, if I keep myself busy I am fine, but as soon as I have nothing to do, it's all i seem to think of, especially at night time. I know how hard it is for me, and I hope that all your guys stand by your side, and try to understand. Because mine doesn't seem too quite understand, but I know he cares.
