These People Share Their Experiences Of How They Felt After Waking Up From Serious Coma.
I was in a medically induced coma a few years back for around a month or so. There was no “waking up” phenomenon. One day I remember some flashes of light which continued for a few days. Because of the drugs they were giving me, I was hallucinating and had no idea what was going on for at least a week.
For instance, I was convinced the heart rate monitor was playing the Mario theme song and they had brought me, Mario, to play. The nurse was so pissed off when I kept asking her if she could play the game again.
#7 Memories From High School.
I met with a serious car accident and was in a coma, for a week. I had multiple broken bones, fractured skull, broke my jaw and fractured most parts of my face and even lost my memory for 2 months.
When I woke up for the first time, all I could recall was my high school boyfriend and mourned over the fact that he wasn't by my side. But the worst memory was when I was still in a coma, I had all my senses, I could feel every touch and everything that happened around me but couldn't do anything.
#6 Short Term Memory Loss..
I had a car wreck and broke my C2 and C3 in my neck, hip and clavicle. I was in a coma for two months and when I woke up, there was a happy birthday banner right in front of me and my first question was “Holy shit, what happened?” My 2nd question I asked myself was, “How old am I?”
I tried my best to walk up to the mirror but was unable to move. Wanted to scream but my vocal cord had been paralysed too and I gave up. I was in rehab for more than seven months until I could get back on my feet.
The next stories are way too insane to be missed.
#5 The Clueless Kid!
When I was six, my house was on fire. I passed into the coma from smoke inhalation because the fire had happened in the room I was sleeping in. I remember waking up normally thinking I hadn't missed anything.
But then found out a huge box of 'get well soon' card and pieced together that I must have been here for a while.
#4 Because She Knows How It Feels Like
I was in a coma post a very severe seizure for six days. I didn't suddenly come out of it but instead remained more and more time awake. I felt drowsy and had no senses and then started sleeping less and was more fully awake. It probably took about four days to get my senses back.
I'm now a nurse and see patients come out of coma which to me is always gradual.
#3 Same Old News?
In 1998, when I was 16, I was in a coma for 3 days. I’m from New York but was spending 3 weeks on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. Sometime during week 2, I got sick and ended up having 2 seizures. I was helicoptered to a hospital in Flagstaff.
When I woke up from my coma, I recall it being sort of like the scene from E.T.; I had tubes on and in me, I sat up in bed and started pulling them off of me. My parents, who had flown in, calmed me down. I couldn't recall much of the next few days and read the same newspaper for like 3 days in a row.
But the next two stories are crazy. Continue ahead.
#2 All's Well That Ends Well
My coma hallucinations were pretty bad, I kept trying to fight everyone. So much so that they even tied me to the bed so I wouldn’t hurt anyone or myself. When I finally stopped hallucinating, I was so tired of running away and fighting, that I didn’t even care much for the fact I had lost an arm, I was just glad it was over.
I was in the coma for about two weeks because of an internal bleeding caused by clostridium difficile and sepsis. Initially, it was a genuine coma but later on, it was induced by the doctors by ketamine.
The last proper memory I had was being surrounded by doctors on a table with these insanely bright high-powered lights pointed at me. I was sweating from the heat but still felt like I was freezing.
After that, I was out for at least a week. I remember looking down and seeing two catheter lines in both my arms and two in my chest. As they slowly lowered the dosage of tranquillizers I woke up more and more, the downside of that being that I could suddenly feel all the pain.
