Know The Timeline Is Abnormal

This is not the type of thing where you get coffee one time and talk about it and never again. The emotional processing of an abortion doesn’t fit into a neat or predictable timeline. Emotions can come to the surface like a tidal wave or something. There would be months when this doesn’t happen, then a bad week, then more months of peace. Know that at any time, for years or forever, your friend might have feelings about this.
