11 years ago, I had an abortion. It still haunts me and I do not feel like I deserve to ever have a baby because of what I did. I think I was raped. I was so high on drugs that night that I have no recollection of what happened. I dont know if I passed out or what - but I cannot remember it. The guy was a real jerk - he did not deny it - and pretty much said it was my problem - deal with it. He only an acquaintance. I was single and felt like I had no way to raise a kid completely by myself on such a low income. I severed my relationship with God and the Catholic church because I felt so guilty. I could not be a hypocrite. I miss my religion sometimes but it is so hard for me to feel like I have any right to talk to God when I am quite insignificant in the whole realm of the universe. I have a good life now but feel like the things I have done in past make me unworthy. The other night I cried and cried and cried thinking about the innocent life lost due to my selfishness. Does anyone know how to make it better? after 11 years - will it ever be better?

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
