My boyfriend at the time took advantage of me, did not listen to me, and a month later I started craving blueberries (of all things!). Sharp noises irritated me all the time, I was exhausted and never felt like going out…so my friend suggested I get a pregnancy test. Which, obviously, turned out positive. I was actually very calm and level-headed with my decision. I went for the medical abortion and my friend stayed with me while my body underwent the process. The following weekend, I felt liberated. Never again will I let someone, no matter how much I think they care about me, do something against my wishes. I have much higher self-esteem and when I have a steady job, income, and husband, I will become the mother I’ve always wanted to be.
