PARIS (CNN) It started with a call from a local nurse.
“Are you there?” she asked.
“I’m on the phone,” my daughter replied.
It was December 3, 2016.
A woman named Marissa was being treated for an acute pelvic inflammatory disease.
“She had a history of having an episode, she had to be hospitalized, she was in pain, her pain level was getting higher and her doctor had been taking her pain medication,” said her mother, Marissa.
“So he was taking her medication and she had a very, very bad pelvic inflammatory episode.”
After a quick visit to the ER, doctors said she would need surgery.
The nurse, however, wasn’t there for the surgery.
She called her parents, who were in another city.
“They were so concerned about her,” Marissa recalled.
“We said, ‘We’re in Paris.
Her heart rate was skyrocketing. “
The following day, Marisa woke up in the hospital and her pain was worsening.
Her heart rate was skyrocketing.
But I’m going to have to do this again,'” Marissa said. “
It’s one of those things where you’re like, ‘OK, I can breathe.
But I’m going to have to do this again,'” Marissa said.
She went into shock for three hours.
“The first time, it was really hard, but I could tell it was going to be OK,” she said.
“Then I thought, ‘You can do this, you can do that.
This is going to make you stronger, this is going on your mind.'”
Marissa spent the next few weeks in the ICU.
Doctors put her in a bed with tubes and a tube feed.
“After a few weeks, they had to put me on a respirator, so I couldn’t breathe,” she told CNN.
“And then I was back in the ER.”
Marissa had undergone a pelvic floor surgery three weeks earlier, and the pain was gone.
Her life was restored.
“My life is amazing,” she says.
Marissa’s parents were amazed to learn how effective a locked lock bridge was.
“This is the first time I’ve seen something that has worked like that,” she recalled.
It took about six months for Marissa to get used to the feeling of being locked in her own room.
“You can’t go out of your room, you have to lock yourself in your room,” she explained.
“For me, it took about three weeks to get it.”
But it was a learning curve for her as well.
Marisa was already a little bit of a lock breaker, but when she started her second lock bridge attempt, she couldn’t believe how simple it was.
She had just gotten her first pair of locks.
“When I started the first one, I didn’t have any knowledge of locks, so it was all very confusing,” she recalls.
“But after a while, I got the hang of it, and it’s a very intuitive feeling.”
The first lock bridge to help her through the pain has been a great success.
“Since it’s so easy to get locked up in there, it gives you the strength to stay there,” she added.
“Now, I don’t have to worry about any of my friends locking me up, so now I have friends who don’t lock me up.”
It’s not a lock that only helps her, though.
A lock bridge is also one of the best ways to reduce the risk of injuries from collisions.
It can reduce the number of lock collisions that occur.
“There’s a lot of times people just don’t realize the risk, and then they do,” Marisa says.
“In a way, a lock is like a bomb.
It has a very high explosive potential, so even if you just get locked, you don’t know that you’re going to get hurt.”
“The biggest thing is to have a strong and sturdy lock that will protect you from collisions,” Marisas mother said.
In France, locking is not allowed in public places.
It is not uncommon for women to get stuck in locked rooms in public, where a male partner can be nearby.
But this was not the case for Marisa, who had a locked room with a male colleague, who would lock her in his room to protect her.
She could not escape the lock because he was inside.
Marisais husband called the police.
After four hours of police activity, they finally came and got Marissa out.
“Once I got out, I was a completely different person,” she revealed.
“Before, I had this really bad pain, but now I was feeling normal.”
The next day, she went to the hospital, and doctors took the first lock bridges she had taken.
They found her pain had eased, and she was able to walk again. Mar
