When she was examined by specialists at Clinic of healthy vessels, it turned out that the girl is too overloaded: except for lessons, she is engaged in dances, drawing, is studying four foreign languages… The well-off family aimed to provide the child the best terms for comprehensive development, they however ignored her age-old potential, and sickly displays were perceived without attention, they considered as it may “outgrow”. All these resulted in nervous derangement, and doctors and psychologists made much efforts to make Oksanka feel better.
