Hello there and welcome to Pelvis!

My name is Kirstein and I coexist with a medical condition known as DIASTASIS SYMPHYSIS PUBIS, otherwise known as SYMPHYSIS PUBIS DYSFUNCTION.

I have been living with this illness since at least February 1996 when I was 22 weeks pregnant with my son. Alex is 3 in May and I am now registered disabled and recieve Disability Living Allowance.

My diary contains details of what I have been through leading up to November 1998. It can be found at


Please take the time to read this diary, as there may be circumstances that you (or your patients if you are from the medical world) may find familiar.
