Angela and Anisha go everywhere and do everything together. Anisha doesn't have a choice. She was born with brain damage, leaving her intellectually disabled.
While pregnant with Anisha and her twin sister, Angela said she was working at the Austin State Hospital when a patient attacked her.
"She was delusional,” Angela said. “I took her to the bathroom and she kicked me in my stomach. Two weeks after, they came. One pound, 14 ounces, and two pounds."
The twins were born prematurely. While one is healthy, Angela said the other, Anisha, has struggled since birth. Anisha is blind in one eye and has the IQ of a 13-year-old. But with some help, she managed to graduate from high school at 23.
"Anisha was doing so good," Angela said.
But that changed in November 2014. Anisha hit her head, causing fluid on her brain.
"She said, 'Mom my brain is exploding,'” Angela said. “'I'm in so much excruciating pain. I can't take it.'"
Angela met with a neurosurgeon who put a medical device in Anisha's brain to relieve the pressure. Soon after the device was implanted, Angela said Anisha's personality changed dramatically. She was having seizures.
"She jumped out of her twin sister's car,” Angela said. “She tried to commit suicide. That's when she ended up at Seton hospital.”
