Experiencing an abortion can leave you feeling a variety of emotions, no matter how secure your decision at the time. Some are faced with immediate effects finding it hard to cope with the day to day, while others may go years before feelings surface. At Embrace, we offer confidential abortion recovery services. They are completely free of charge and available for both men and women who are ready to work through their feelings.
It’s natural to try to forget negative experiences. You may have even tried to deny or ignore these feelings. But yet they seem to intrude your thoughts at the most inopportune times. You are not alone.
Is It Normal To Feel This Way?
Researchers and health care professionals are now classifying these symptoms as Post-Abortion Syndrome. These symptoms could include any or all of the following:
- Anger or irritability
- Nightmares, sleeping disorders
- Depression, numbness
- Suicidal thoughts
In addition, you may struggle with developing eating disorders, alcohol & drug abuse, or difficulty maintaining loving relationships. If you are having any of these feelings, ignoring them will not make them disappear. Seeking help may be one of the toughest decisions you have to make, but also one of the best.
