Have you ever had someone say to you, “You Got This!”? Maybe you were in a classroom and an encouraging teacher said this to you as you were working on an assignment or studying hard for a test. Maybe a friend smiled and shouted this out to you as you competed in a sporting event.
When you are faced with a challenge, it can feel really good to have someone come alongside of you to give you that extra bit of encouragement. This can be especially true when you are faced with what seems like the biggest challenge of your life. Just when you thought the worst of your situation was over with, you get knocked down once again. Not just a little bit, but with devastating, long-lasting results.
This can be true of many who go through with an abortion and then find themselves faced with another more difficult challenge: post abortion stress. Not only can it hit you hard and knock you down, but it can feel like you will NEVER recover from it. Those feelings of hope you once had? Gone. Those feelings of excitement about your future? Gone. Those feelings of self-worth? Yes, you guessed it, gone.
You may find yourself asking, “Now what? Will I ever be able to feel normal again? Who is going to help me through this agony?”
If you are finding yourself relating to this experience, please know there is hope and help available.
