I know there are a lot of varying opinions in the world and I respect yours but there are zero reasons to post something negative.
I was sexually assaulted when I was 16 and that caused me to be pregnant. It was definitely the worst time of my life and changed me forever. I genuinely believe a part of me died that day.
I chose to have an abortion because it was the best choice for myself and what could’ve been a child. My family said it was all my fault and shamed me constantly and it was really hard.
Ever since then I’ve really struggled with PTSD, anxiety, and depression at a pretty extreme level. I didn’t realize until today, but I have had extreme reactions to pregnancy and pregnant women.
I had a mental health counselor who was pregnant and that gave me a huge level of anxiety. I struggle with seeing pregnant women on the way tv and in person. I feel so anxious every period even though I have an IUD and I haven’t even had sex because I’ve been recovering from a major surgery.
I have forced myself to deal with pregnant people and what not because it’s a bit unrealistic to be in a bubble (even though I’d prefer it a lot) but I struggle with this on the way a daily level and even have a lot anxiety writing this. Can someone relate/talk about this with me?
