Teen Depicts the Art of Her Own Brain Recovery

Tessa Carlisle shares her artworks with her school chaplain. They’re based on brain scans from the neurosurgeries that corrected an aneurysm in her brain. Her medical journey started in April of last year. I was about to scream and I felt a very sharp pain in my head and I remember thinking to myself, this doesn’t feel right.And then the last thing I remember is collapsing on the floor and just blacking out and thinking this isn’t real, this isn’t real. There was a second brain surgery in January this year and for both months of recovery, she wanted to use her experience in an art project for school. I decided that I wanted to tell my story and tell the way I wanted it to be told and show to people that I’m not just a girl who had an aneurysm. I’m a girl who has recovered from something. This April, she shared her experience with fellow students at the Episcopal School of Los Angeles. Tessa came to me and she said I have a story to tell and I’m ready to tell it and so we scheduled her and she got to start that talk by saying, you know, one year ago, this weekend, this happened to me. She has also taken part in the school’s volunteer program by working with young patients at Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles where she received part of her treatment.She’s had support from her family. It’s a very tough thing for a parent but it’s not a hard thing to talk about because the relief of having Tessa back with us is so great. And to watch her go through this whole procedure and emerge on the other side was very tough, but very, you know, incredibly rewarding and a fantastic thing at the end. Aneurysms are rare in teenagers and they’re dangerous unless treated right away. The family itself takes on a huge burden in trying to care for the child and care for themselves psychologically. It’s really a tough thing. And the fact that you know, Tess and her family came through this so strong. It’s a testament to them. The family has used the experience to reach out, Tessa through her artwork and her mom Clarissa helping raise funds for a Medical Center by running a marathon. They really have funneled all of that, those emotions and things that really could have set them back, I think, and instead have made a positive impact on other people’s lives. Tessa hopes to find a career in the field of art therapy to help others discover the healing power of art as she has.

特萨·卡莱尔与学校牧师分享了她的艺术作品。这些艺术作品是基于修复了她大脑中动脉瘤的神经外科手术脑部扫描。她的医疗之旅始于去年四月。我差点要尖叫出声,我觉得我的头非常疼,我记得当时自己在想,这感觉不对劲。然后我记得的最后一件事就是我倒在地板上,然后晕过去了,我当时还在想这不是真的,这不是真的。今年一月她进行了第二次脑部手术,在两个月的康复过程中,她想把自己的经验应用于学校的一个艺术项目。我决定要讲述自己的故事,以我想要的方式来讲述,向人们展示我不只是一个患有动脉瘤的女孩,而是一个从这件事中恢复过来的女孩。今年四月,她与洛杉矶圣公会学校的同学们分享了她的经历。特萨来找我,她说我想讲述一个故事,我已经准备好了,所以我们安排她进行了讲述,她说一年前的这个周末,在我身上发生了一件事。她还参加了学校的志愿者计划,与洛杉矶儿童医院的年轻患者一起工作,她也曾在那里接受了部分治疗。她得到了家人的支持。这对家长来说非常艰难,但去讲述这件事并没有很难,因为特萨能回来和我们在一起让我们感到很宽慰。看着她经历整个过程,然后看着她挺过来,这个过程是非常艰难的,但我们的收获令人难以置信,最后也收获了圆满的结局。动脉瘤在青少年中很少见,除非立即进行治疗,否则会十分危险。既要在心理上宽慰孩子,又要宽慰自己,家庭本身承担着巨大的负担。这真的是一件很难的事。但是特萨一家经历了这一切,他们很坚强,这就是最好的证明。这家人通过这段经历向外界提供帮助,特萨是通过她的艺术作品来完成,而她的妈妈克拉丽莎则是通过马拉松为医疗中心筹集资金。我认为,他们真的把所有那些阻碍他们的情绪和事情都清除掉了,这反而对其他人的生活产生了积极的影响。特萨希望在艺术治疗领域找到一份工作,帮助其他人像她一样发现艺术的治愈力量。
