Just Pass It On is a website where people can post their experiences with various difficult life situations. One of the areas they include is post-abortion trauma.
"I'm heartbroken. This is the main reason why I'm clinging to my ex. He was going to be the father of my child. I remember going to the clinic only to please him. I was so extremely hurt that I almost tricked myself to believe this was happening to someone else and I was just watching. To help me cope, I bought a mouse and I nurtured and compulsively gave it everything to make it healthly and alive. I went too far and I lost it. I placed all my problems onto this mouse and never let any sign of emotion out about the abortion because the mouse took its place. The mouse died and I had a crisis. I ended up swallowing 40 panadols trying to be with this unborn child. I drive myself to insanity and now I am still grieving and clingy onto my ex's memory for the sake of this baby."
