Gisele in her gitenge

Gisele suffers from PTSD - she is in her early twenties, and has a difficult time dealing with her memories of what happened to her as a little girl during the genocide. She has ulcers, and periodic bouts of severe acid reflux and vomiting. Being treated not only gives her the medicines she needs for her symptoms, but also helps her begin to understand what triggers he illness, and learn to cope with her memories.
