I am here to share my story. About 3 years ago, my brother took my 3 year old while I was asleep and jumped off a bridge. I started therapy and also took pills for depression. As the time passed, I decided to stop taking pills and just try to handle my depression on my own. About a year after my daughters death, I found out I was pregnant. It was a bit scary to find out that I was pregnant on the exact month my daughter passed. My family saw it as a blessing from God. I would say that the pregnancy hormones made me feel worst knowing that I'm about to have another baby while still mourning my daughters death. I gave birth at 25 weeks to a beautiful baby girl. I thanked God and knew that I had a rough road ahead of me. My baby was diagnosed with PVL due to the lack of oxygen. I knew nothing about premature babies. I began to do research and knowledge myself about the current situation.  I've had to stop working and going to school in order to care for my baby. My daughter is now 18 months and does not walk, talk, sit, roll over, or keep her head up for more than a couple of seconds. It does get depressing at times because I want her to improve but the progress is slow or very little. I came across an article on Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment. I understand that it has helped many patients improve and live a better life. I want to give my baby that chance. This experience has made me become a better person and mother. I feel that anyone who has a child with a disability should not give up FAITH.
