I Feel Scared
Scared. . .
That’s all I knew at that moment.
I wished I could just be numb. But all I knew was that I felt scared.
My hands wouldn’t stop shaking and I couldn’t seem to focus on anything. I knew I needed some help. Obviously, this was one thing that I wasn’t going to be able to take care of by myself.
Once my mind cleared enough for me to think, I knew that I needed to do a little research. There had to be options out there – I just needed to figure out what was best.
I landed on the Advice & Aid Pregnancy Centers site. There, I learned a few things that I didn’t know (who knew there were so many different types of abortion?).
I also learned that they had knowledge of ALL of my options. After one phone call to them (and I’ll admit, I felt scared making that first call), I felt at ease.
There was someone who understood exactly what I was going through. My Client Advocate was there for me, listening without judgment through that entire first meeting.
Was it hard to step into their offices? You bet. But I had to do something. This wasn’t something I could just ignore and it would go away. I had some tough decisions to make. But I wasn’t going to have to do it alone.
And you know what, I wasn’t scared anymore.
