Meet Deborah

Deborah Usher is a 36-year-old mother who used a strong tampon when she had her period when she was just 27. Suddenly, she thought she had a flu, but she actually had an extremely rare bacterial infection because of the tampon.

Coma

Coma

Because of the infection, she had a rare toxic shock syndrome which put her into a coma for about a week. When she finally woke up, she was unable to do normal things, nor was she able to remember her own son.

Even Now

Even Now

Despite being awake now, she still suffers from having a weakened immune system and bouts of amnesia. She is unable to remember most of her past, even the most significant events with her son Joshua have now become blurry.

A Christmas to Remember

Thankfully, Deborah was able to have fun with Joshua during his eight birthday. Even though it's December, she still remembers the event and hopes that now, she'll see Joshua open up presents and spend Christmas with her. She doesn't want to forget these important events.

Affects 40 People

Affects 40 People

The toxic shock syndrome is so rare that only 40 people are affected by it in Britain every year. For Deborah, it feels like she has a hangover every day and she feels that her mind is a blank slate whenever she loses her memories.

On Life Support

On Life Support

When she had the infection, she was unable to walk, talk, and was basically on life support. Her family was very concerned, and thankfully she woke up. Her mother actually didn't want to take photos of her because they could've been the last since the doctors told the family to prepare for the worst.

Relying on Photographs

Relying on Photographs

Since Deborah still has to fully recover from the toxic shock syndrome, she now has relied on the stories and memories of other people. She also now sees photos as important so that even when she forgets them, she can be reminded visually.
