On march 22 2013, i was forced to make the hardest decision of my life. February i had discovered that i was a month pregnant. I fell very ill and my body had crashed. I didn't eat, sleep or even drink water and the physical pain was unreal. I was diagnosed with a mental illness at the time and was taking hard medication for it. I had demanded to be taken off of it in order to attempt to reverse the damage done but it made everything WORSE. I was brought to the emergency room at 2am and was diagnosed with sever dehydration and exhaustion. An emergency ultra sound was ordered and the doctor had said my body was rejecting the baby, and because physically i was unable to function it was taking fluid and nutrients from my organs.His exact words were "If by some chance you could continue only one or neithier of you would have survived" and that morning my heart shattered. I followed threw with the termination and i haven't been the same since.I know that at 20 years old physically, mentally and financially i was in no position to have a child. A child is a gift from god and should be treated as such. My mother tells me that "God indeed gave me a gift, but his gift was given at the wrong time." Im so torn up inside and i am HAUNTED by my choice to terminate. Has anyone experienced this type of loss before or know someone who has? if so advice and ideas are much needed. Please and thank you.View Thread
I feel as if i can relate Jody64504. I was given the gift to have a child but unfortunately it was taken away from me. I have an extremely hard time being around pregnant women and children. Its hard because im young with a good number of friends and lots of little ones in my family. Its absolutely devestating to want something you may/or may not ever get the chance to have. Iv found that allowing yourself alone time and engrossing yourself in somthing positive helps. Talking about it with loved ones even your pregnant friends who you feel understand is a good way to let it out as well.View Thread
