    Hi there,

    I'm a new user here. You can all call me E. I'm 20 years old from Canada. I'm a writer and I finish my last year of university in the fall.

    I joined because I've been going through a really tough time for the past few months. I suffer from a chronic stomach illness (I have since I was 18) that has, in a lot of ways, controlled my life. I have a hard time going out if I have a flare-up and there's no cure for it, so there isn't much I can do. I was also recently diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and while I was on my first vacation in 14 years, the cyst ruptured and has caused me severe pain. Again, doctors told me there's nothing I can do until the cyst passes on its own.

    I don't have much support, aside from my mother. I don't have many friends because, again, my illnesses really restrict my social life. My girlfriend of two years just left me, and she was never supportive in terms of my illnesses.

    I was suicidal for much of the past week, and after a breakdown, my ex called the cops on me. I wasn't admitted to a hospital because I haven't self-harmed and haven't intended to act on my thoughts, but the situation really scared me.

    I want to feel better, I just don't know where to start.

    I hope this forum will help me and act as the support system I'm desperate for.
