Numb!! i was numbed by the experience.
i had an abortion 3 months ago and to this day i have never felt anything not
a tear has passed my eye, but that's just me as i constantly cry for my friend
who had one but i felt that i should have known better.
to this day i am
waiting for my period and too scared to do a pregnancy test. i am too days late
and thinking how could i have been so stupid. i have had sex twice since the first
time and it looks like it could happen again.
the first time i was desperate
to get rid of the baby i searched the net looking for things i could do or take
to cause a miscarriage but in the end i realised that i had to have an abortion.

I had known what trouble you were bearing;
What griefs were in the silence
of your face;
I would have been more gentle, and more caring,
to give you gladness for a space."
