Zdrava mlada žena se jednog jutra probudila sa ukočenim vratom, a nekoliko sati kasnije je bila paralizovana.

Život Helen Finčam (24) iz Bridženda naglo se promenio pre tri godine kad ju je zadesilo retko stanje pod nazivom transverzalni mijelitis.

Helen je dan pre svog iznenadnog kolapsa provela sa sestričinom na plaži. Pošto se sutradan probudila sa ukočenim vratom, pomislila je da je to posledica spavanja u nezgodnom položaju. Nekoliko sati kasnije, Helen je ležala na svom krevetu sa grčom u grudima.

- Nikad nisam bila bolesna, pa sam znala da nešto sigurno nije u redu. Borila sam se da dišem, a onda sam imala bolove i u ruci. Pozvala sam doktora i sekretarica mi je rekla da odmah dođem u bolnicu. Tek onda sam počela da paničim - rekla je Helen.

Helen, pre ovog stanja, nije patila od posledica nekog pada i nije doživela ništa što bi joj izazvalo ovo stanje koje se obično dešava nakon bakterijske infekcije.

- Sledećeg dana su me odveli u drugu bolnicu gde su mi testirali reflekse. Uopšte mi nisu reagovali. Počela sam da plačem, a nisam više mogla ni da obrišem suze - priseća se Helen.

When you become injured & in my case actually helpless,completely paralysed u end up in a weird place & you don’t feel like yourself when you’ve been In hospital for months. You forget who you were because you’re not up and about running errands worrying about your work clothes being ironed & daily without realising looking in the mirror.Every day nowadays you want to look your best because we are all obsessed with our appearances & changing things to feel better about ourselves. Whilst I lay there in bed back in 2016, completely paralysed for months I obviously couldn’t move or get up to do things like my hair & get dressed. So I just stayed in joggers/pyjamas that were comfy to be in bed,I never brushed my own hair because I couldn’t do it myself and hated the fact I had to rely on others to do it all so instead I would refuse because I couldn’t accept that was how it was going to be having other people do everything for me even the smallest tasks.I fell in to a really bad place because I didn’t feel like me the person before, I wasn’t happy.This paralysis just took over emotionally mentally & physically and these three factors were really struggling with depression through hospital to the point I refused to talk to other patients and nurses,refused medication,I refused to be moved.This went on for a while until One day I was crying to my OT & Physio saying I want to be able to do my own hair & make up I just want to wear my normal clothes like before as I was worried before about my catheter bag & where I could put it. The plan from there was in action,first off I started to order clothes to get out of pjs & into some skinny jeans and nice tops.This encouraged me to want to get out of bed HUGE step. Being a #tetraplegic / #quadriplegic my hands don’t function at all & in OT we used to play board games etc to practice teaching my hands the movement but I decided I wanted to focus on trying to do my make up ina different way which took longer but I worked hard at it and eventually I felt AMAZING I could do it😍nothings gonna come if you just sit moan about it.HUGE confidence boost thanks to @manesandgrace and @voguehairprofessional making me feel pretty😘X

Njeno stanje zadesi oko 300 ljudi na godišnjem nivou, i to je neurološki poremećaj izazvan upalom kičmene moždine.

Trenutno ne postoji lek za transverzalni mijelitis, ali rehabilitacija može pomoći oporavku i umanjiti simptome.

Helen je šest meseci provela u bolnici i još dvanaest na rehabilitaciji i od tada je povratila pojedine pokrete i snagu u rukama. Sad živi u posebno adaptiranom stanu na prizemlju u Bridžendu.

- Ruke mogu da pomeram toliko da sama mogu da se hranim, ali ne mogu da sečem niti da kuvam. Potrebna mi je stalna nega. Ne mogu mnogo toga da uradim nezavisno. Ljudi mi pomažu da se okupam, obučem, pomeram, izađem iz automobila - kaže Helen.

Ne želeći da bude zavisna od pomagača, Helen je rešena da postane snažnija kako bi bila nezavisnija, ali to se pokazalo težim budući da ima samo petnaest minuta fizioterapije sedmično, jer ova mlada žena trenutno nije u stanju za duže vežbanje.

    U Srbiji bi prosila, kakav crni poseban tretman.

    Pretesko! Ne daj Boze nikome....

    Žalosno, vrlo žalosno. Kad čovek odjednom postane nepokretan, to je užas. Želim joj Božju pomoć da se oporavi.
