Can't deal right now, I need a safe place and this is not it.

Big ((((hugs))))) to all of you that posted on the thread though, thank you.
I'm so so sorry you're dealing with this, on top of the grief you must be experiencing. Please keep the thread. It is an education in itself. People need to realize that this is not a decision that's made lightly, and that women know what's best for their own and their children's lives. You are your children's best advocate. Nobody knows your situation like you do. What you ended up deciding, you did with all the knowledge of your unique circumstance which nobody else was privy to (and which is nobody else's business). Nobody can change it now, anyway. It doesn't do any good to say, "You should have [whatever]." All we can (and should) do now is give you our unconditional love and support to help you with your grief.

(The story by hahamommy moved me to tears. Thank you for posting it, hahamommy.)

I'm sorry someone felt like it was good idea to burden you further with unkind, judgemental words. You get to feel how you feel.

You've been in my thoughts. I'm sorry you had to go through this experience and wish you all the safety and healing in the world. , mama.

supportive hugs from me

I am so sorry people are being negative here where you thought you would be safe.

The emotions and feelings come and go, sometimes the triggers cannot be easily identified. Dealing with them when they crop up unexpectedly is hard work.

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

Hugs to you. I've been there, in a very similar situation, and made the same choice as you did. It was rough at times, but eventually I made peace with my decision. I know without a doubt it was the right thing for me to do. PM me if you ever want to talk.
