Hello my name is Roxanne and I am 27 years old. I have the honor to share with you my story and I hope to help people with this one.
My life journey...
An almost ordinary girl and her reborn baby dolls
It all started at the age of 7, when I had the diagnosis that changed my life forever BAM!! Severe Tourette's syndrome.
As we get older, particularly during adolescence and as a young adult from 13 to 18 years old, strong and painful motor tics follow one another, which says pain says must be relieved, so an increase in neuroleptic-type drugs is necessary to reduce my tics… But given 500 mg of seroquel, I don't know if you know this drug which is very powerful. 500 mg is huge at 14 years old. So I had to have electrocardiograms every year and frequent blood tests to make sure my heart was fine. Obviously I was in the 2nd year of secondary school and I had to drop out of school, because there was too much pain and too much medicine to be able to study. I don't know about you, but losing your friends and seeing them succeed in finishing high school, going to CEGEP, etc. Being happy and healthy affected me a lot. Because in these 6 years I broke 6 ribs due to my powerful tics result 4 months without moving (addition of morphine to relieve my pain), 1 concussion, several tension headaches due to too much Tylenol to relieve my pain plus 4 months of hospitalization, depression...
Without forgetting the 3 years of withdrawal from my neuroleptics between the ages of 24 and 26.
The discovery of doll therapy.
I saw my mother who suffered a lot from seeing me suffer so much and trying to find a way to relieve me, until she wanted to go to France to heal me and here we discovered
I am 16 years old I find an article on the benefits of reborning on the net and I see a Berenguer reborner at the price of $ 250 in my eyes and those of my parents it is expensive … but relieving me is priceless.
THE BENEFIT OF REBORNING
• Concentrating on the baby, dressing it, taking care of it allows me to forget my pain and concentrate on things other than my misfortunes.
• Allows me to calm my anxieties and accompany my tears.
• Allows me to go out to see people, because when ojn is depressed we withdraw into ourselves. Having the baby with me allowed me to channel my embarrassment.
• Year after year, reborn dolls have been an essential tool to channel my rage and avoid temper tantrums.
• Calm my physical and mental pain, because the two are linked.
FINALLY THE REBORNS ALLOWED ME TO REDUCE MY MEDICATIONS BY 80% IN 3 YEARS.
You will then understand that reborns are important in my life and will always have an important place, because in addition to being a therapeutic method without side effects, reborns are also art for me and become a magnificent collection.
Of a woman with her heart of a little girl who hopes one day to have, despite her journey filled with gravel and pitfalls, a life filled with sweetness. Because every time we get up from an ordeal we have new hope for better days.
