Kelly attempted suicide, was hospitalised, suffered eating disorders and started to self-harm.
‘It was easier to feel the pain from self-harm then the pain in my head. At least the pain from self-harm goes away, unlike the pain inside that is always there.’
She decided to apply for euthanasia after learning it was lawful and possible from a psychologist in the hospital.
‘I felt ‘yes’,’ she said, pumping her fist as she recalled the moment. ‘I immediately went and looked up all the information I could find.’
