As days go by, the grief builds and builds if left alone without processing. The “black times” can get stronger or last longer. If you relate to any of these points of grief that relate to a “vpt” maybe this is the time in your life you should start facing the grief and loss connected to the event.
There are a lot of resources available. You can Google on “grief after abortion.” and find several very helpful programs. If you want to start the journey in the safety of your own home you can try the self-help plan I created so that you would not be alone and have tools to guide you through the process. All materials are non-judgmental and non-political or religious in nature. Additionally, download a brochure I created to educate yourself or others about voluntary pregnancy termination and disenfranchised grief.
Additionally, your therapist can walk this journey with you. Let them know about the new resources available to help them help you.
