I had made my decission even before it had happened. I got pregnant at 23 and knew I could not have it. I wasn’t ready to give the baby the life it deserved adn the father simply told me to “not scare him”, so I carried on with my decission.The worst part was not the physical trauma (which was huge because the chemical method did not work and I had to undergo surgery), but the emotional one because at work I couldn’t even get sick. I had to work the entire day, undergo surgery in the evening and return to work the next morning like nothing had happened. My friends stayed by my side the entire time but my family has no idea it happened.
