Hi my name is Von. I'm 25yrs old and have been suffering from abdominal pain since a child however 3 yrs ago it turned chronic. Still no diagnosis but suspected nerve damage in lower right side of abdomen or hip issue. I had to leave uni where I was on my last teaching placement to become a teacher and eventually lost my job. Finally when I felt that I had lost everything I tried to commit suicide in 2016 and finally got the help I needed with pain psychology and physiotherapy. I still have very dark days where I can't cope with the pain, my lack of life and my lack of independence to do things for myself. Hopefully in the future I will be able to cope with my pain and regain somewhat of a normal life even if it isn't like my life before.
