If you have had an abortion by choice or were forced into one then it can have long term effects which include depression. The medical field has given it a name, Post abortion stress syndrome, but it is not accepted as an actual diagnosis. I think that much of my depression and my inability to bond with my children has been due to an abortion at 17. Why am I bringing this up? Well I have told many therapists about my abortion, and the situation surrounding it but never once was PASS mentioned, because it is not an official diagnosis. I wonder how many more out there have not identified with this reason since it is not talked about. I did my own research and now realise that it is the root of all my problems starting at depression, but I never mad that connection. I know that nobody wants to talk about this, but it is real, and was my moment of understanding. If you of someone you know had an abortion, please look it up, the insite may help you to understand your feelings and actions much better, it did me.
