Triga reality adopted the Barborka Svobodova in frame of civic association "Good Facts" as part of the project "Adoption of Good Deed" and contributes financially monthly to her account (more information at www.dobryskutek.cz)
She was born in Opočno on June 16, 2004 as a seemingly healthy baby. Barunka was very much good baby, but she still vomited and so we were examined at a children's clinic where they found a cardiological defect. At nine months,
we noticed that Barunka did not make progress as other children of her age, and her eyesrolled up.
After examination at the neurological clinic, Barunka was diagnosed with severe epilepsy and began treatment. Barunka almost always slept for the entire year of treatment, and her eyebrows did not disappear. After the last increase in medication, she received a seizure that looked epileptic and was transferred to the hospital. We started to treat Barunka with stronger drugs, but she did not respond at all and she was transferred to the Motol University Hospital in Prague. In Motol, many doctors have discovered that Barunka's epilepsy has never had a diagnosis syndrome "Paroxysmal Tonic View of Childhood", which is quite unique in our country and does not treat any medications.
This syndrome includes eye stopping, poor motoring and sometimes delayed development.
After drug discontinuation, Barunka began to awaken to life. Prior to the start of treatment, she was very calm and a good child, but she suddenly changed very much. She began to be very tired, still angry and very restless. At this time, asthma manifested itself. She first sat down at eighteen months and started walking at the age of three. She almost did not speak and resisted it today. Barunka controls about 15 words.
At six, Barunka was diagnosed atypical autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). By going to pre-school, everything was getting worse. Barunka began to hurt, to tear her hair and to bite her hands. Seizures of anger were getting worse. We were forced to treat ADHD with soothing medication. Unfortunately, we did not find a cure today that helped her completely. Caring for Barunka is very demanding both physically and mentally.
But we do not just ask for the unfortunate - Barunka likes to swim and likes animals. She loves her full-fledged toys that we take everywhere and the most beautiful for us is, when she laughs and wants to cuddle. Barunka also has an older brother who likes to be angry. Barunka commutes daily to a school 15 km away. And because she does not study because of her hyper-activity, she must still have her own assistant, who helps her in all directions.
Since December 2011 we have been testing biological treatment according to RNDr. Anny Strunecká. The treatment consists of gluten-free and lactose-free diet along with food supplements and methyl B12. Less than a year later, Barunka learned several other letters and began to be more receptive to her surroundings. Now we've ever been doing Barunka to do something without hurting.
Transportation to schools, assistance and biological treatment is all very costly for us, and therefore we thank Triga reality real estate agency for helping us through the civic association Good deed.
