For once, it's not about me.

I woke up this morning to a series of frantic text messages from someone very close to me. She's pregnant. She has children. She is a single mother. She doesn't want another baby. She has no money for an abortion. She does not want to tell the man because he'll want to keep the baby.

This is emotional for me, because I've been there. This situation is the "OH SHITS" of "OH SHITS"! And perhaps my circumstances were somewhat different, but that doesn't matter. As a woman, this is one of the loneliest places you could ever be. And, I hate it for her.
