Hello, my name is Ellie and I'm new to this board.

Ok, so I had an abortion last November, and have had a tough time getting over it. I was a real mess for months after it, and started to push my now ex-boyfriend away. I finally had enough and left me in June ( there were other reasons involved as well). T

Sorry posted that by accident.Anyway the story continues.

The break-up opened a new can of worms,I'm feeling bad about the break-up but even worse about the abortion.It's like it happened yesterday, I feel so low. I've been taking drugs and using quite a lot of alcohol, which I know doesn't help, but at least numbs my feeling for a while. I know I'm just making my situaion worse, but I can't help it. I've never been a depressive person, but this year just had been too much for me. It has got to the point that I'm playing with the thought of ending it all on the first anniversary of the abortion.Help this is not me...

OhNoEllie -

Do you have a supportive church family or any other nearby support group you can call? You definitely need someone nonjudgmental and compassionate to talk with about this guilt you are carrying...and the grief. I, too, had an abortion, many years ago. I was young at the time (early 30's) and broke up with the father, shortly thereafter. Took a long time, but eventually I did feel really bad about the loss...about the choice I made. The Happy Ending is that I went on to marry and have two wonderful sons. I have actually shared with them that they had an older brother or sister whom I regret having aborted. And we have talked it out together.

Repentance is good for the soul, but guilt which drives you into depression and even suicidal thoughts is BAD. I want to encourage you to reach out for help. In the meantime, keep posting here on these threads. We are here to listen and offer any help that we can.
