    My partner recently had an abortion. We were in a long term relationship, she had consistent doubts about our compatibility and future. I guess the anxiety of becoming parents brought out even more doubts etc and ultimately a decision was made to terminate the pregnancy. We have since broken up and I just can't seem to think of anything else and feel completely paralyzed.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling. This sounds like a really tough place to be in. Things like this take time to move on from and I think it's important that you try to keep living your life and going out and keeping busy. You should absolutely still talk through these feelings and no one expects you to be 100% okay but try not to put all your energy into thinking about it as it will just cause you further distress. Have you talked to anyone close to you about how you're feeling?
