"I'm 20 years old, and have had one abortion, last year in March. I am now faced with making the right decision again. I know some people will say "how could she let this happen again" but I have high blood pressure and cannot be put on birth control. I am scheduled to have part 1 of the 2 day procedure tomorrow at 9:15 am and although I know what to expect, I am terrified.
I have the most understanding boyfriend who I have been with for 5 years and whom I love more and more everyday, but bringing a child into our lives is not the right choice for us at the moment. Please, does anyone know how to calm my nerves? I feel like it's going to hurt and I have a major phobia of pain." —Anonymous
