Has anyone got over having an abortion?

I had an abortion over a year ago. It was a decision that I made, but I was heavily influenced by those around me. Not a day goes by where I don't think about it. Does anyone know how to help, because I don't know what to do anymore?

I'm very sorry for you. I am sure that this act had very significant reasons. With such a decision is extremely difficult to put up and get over it. After experiencing such stress, you definitely need support. I think you should contact a psychologist or a community of women who have gone through this and will be able to give you advice on how to let go of this situation.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing and I am sorry you are feeling so troubled.

I know of many women who coped very well after an abortion and others who have had difficulties. All women are different and you are not alone in how you feel.

My advice to you is too seek counseling - there are many therapist who specialize in post abortion distress. You can look for reviews on line or your primary care doctor can refer you.
