Days before her death, Noa Pothoven had written in an Instagrampost that her suffering is "unbearable" and she is "drained" after years of battling and fighting.

"After years of battling and fighting, I am drained", the social media post continued. She had not shared these for a long time due to the shame she felt. "They think I should finish my trauma treatment and that my brain must first be fully grown. That lasts until you are 21", Pothoven toldDe Gelderlander. "I'm devastated because I can't wait that long anymore".
As Bolwerk's original story noted, and O'Leary summarized: "The family had tried many kinds of psychiatric treatment and Noa Pothoven was repeatedly hospitalised; she made a series of attempts to kill herself in recent months".
She spent her last few years going in and out of hospitals, institutions and specialist centres, with her parents working less to care for their child. She had hidden these incidents from her parents because she was ashamed, The Sun reports. The Dutch Health Ministry said Wednesday that Noa's family was maintaining euthanasia had not occurred while indicating the circumstances of her death were still being investigated.
"I will get straight to the point: within a maximum of 10 days I will die".
