Trish’s story (NMO UK founder)
- It is always important to understand how sufferers feel and we must always keep that uppermost in our minds, but I would like to tell my story as a Mother of a sufferer.
- It all started on Christmas Day 2004 with a supposed stomach bug, Kirsty was 14 years old, I booked an appointment at our family doctors and a stomach bug was diagnosed. Although we followed our doctors instructions things did not improve so it was back to the Doctors, Kirsty’s blood was tested but nothing showed up. At this point Kirsty was starting to get tired very easily and falling asleep in school, so once again it was back to the Doctors. I was told to keep her off school and let her sleep it off; it was the Virus taking its toll.
- On the 31st March 2004 I picked her from school, we were travelling behind a bus when Kirsty said she could not read the number plate, it was all blurred and double. That was it I drove straight to Alder Hey Children’s hospital. By the time we got there parts of her body had become numb and her vision was deteriorating, to me it looked like she had suffered a stroke. A scan, that night showed some inflammation on the Brain. I was told they didn’t know what it was and it needed more investigating. Kirsty was put on Steroids. It was horrible to see my baby suffering and feeling so helpless, after all I’m a mum and we make our children feel better.
