I thought I was In love.

I thought I was In love. I was in a foreign country that I had been working towards immigrating to for 5 years. Being pregnant was everything I had wanted to whole life. The day I took the positive test was the happiest day of my life. I took 24 hours to just enjoy it before having to make any decisions. When I was ready to share the news. The baby daddy mentally and physically abused me. All of my friends dropped me like flies because they didn’t support me. And then by fluke I lost my job. I had no one to go through the process with, I had no one with me while I bled. It’s been 9 months and I have not had any cuddles. I was completely alone , visa running out, broke and terrified in a foreign country during my abortion. I would not wish that upon anyone. I have never been so terrified in my life. It’s been 9 months and it’s been the most painful journey, but not a day goes by where I regret my decision. Being a mum is what I always want, but having the abortion was the best decision I ever made for myself.
