Has anyone suffered from Post Abortion Stress Syndrome? What did you do to help?


I want to start out by saying that I am sorry for what you are going through. Feelings of depression are real, and I'm glad that you are looking for some answers. I suggest finding a liscensed therapist to talk to. There are therapists that specalize in greif and loss, and more specificaly in abortion related loss. These individuals are not there to judge you, but to assist you in this obviously difficult time. Do you think you're boyfriend would agree to couples therapy? It couldn't hurt. I also suggest sitting down with your boyfriend and telling him everything you've said here. I don't know if he knows how you feel (besides the obvious yelling at him), and I think an explination would help. Even if you just tell him that you don't want to be so upset, but since you are for the time being, if he could be more understanding. Therapy is never a bad thing. I hope that you are able to find someone to help you work through your issues, so that you can be the best you. :)


I've had it, I ended up breaking up with my bf because i felt as tho he forced me into having it. I was angry, confused and felt very guilty and ive regretted it since it happened. I didnt see anyone about how i felt, i just dealt with it myself because thats the way i am. If u feel like u need to get it all out how about going and seeing a doctor, he might be able to refer you to someone. Goodluck!

If MLK was alive to day, what do you think he would say about abortion and gay rights?
That's a great question. He would be against abortion for sure. Whether he would want the government preventing abortion rather than allowing the individual woman the right to make the correct moral choice is another matter. Gay rights is a human rights issue, so he would likely be more supportive...

Who made up the idea that choose = abortion?
In 1980 Geraldine Ferraro was the first (that I remember) to say the she was not pro abortion but she was pro choice. As time went on we learned that pro choice meant nothing but pro abortion. The pro choice crowd only supports the choice to have an abortion when it comes to "surprise" pregnancies...
