I have been struggeling with depression for the past year and a half since I had an abortion and I really dont know what to do anymore. I turn 17 next month and am seriously thinking about just not going back to high school next fall, because I hate it so much. I cry every day, and I have felt so alone, so hollow, just about the only thing that gives me comfort are my cigarettes. Now that its summer, and I have nothing to do all day, but feel sorry for myself and chain smoke non stop. Im smoking at least three packs a day now and am also on Wellbutrin, but nothing seems to make me feel better or hopeful.
The whole story about who I think the father was, and everything else is such a mess, it makes me want to vomit just thinking about it and how much I miss him. What have other people done to get over this, because I just dont see any way out right now.
I need a little more information to be able to help you.
Are you depressed because you had an abortion or because you didn't stay with the babys dad after the abortion? Why did you get an abortion? was it your age or baby daddy issues?
