18 years old, in an unstable relationship, living with my mother and working part-time while going to college full-time.

Both my boyfriend and my best friend accompanied me and offered each other support as well.

Doctor that was meant to perform the abortion cancelled my appointment at the last minute and was unable to offer another appointment until after I was over 13 weeks along (his cut-off).  I kicked up so much of a fuss that his secretary ended up scheduling my appointment at the clinic.

It was and still is the absolutely right decision for me.

Some people seemed perturbed by the fact that I was not more “cut up” by the whole experience, which frustrated me.

I found that my talking gave others “permission” to be open about what they were experiencing.
