Whats it like going to sleep the first night after waking up from a long coma?
Ed ecco le risposte:
Honestly, I don’t remember being scared to go to sleep but I had some crazy vivid dreams for a week or two afterwards (traumatic brain injury with 3 bleeds on the brain). I was probably too drugged up to be scared and the gravity of the situation hadn’t sunk in
Sorry, still not woken up yet
Well, people don’t instantly awaken , like from a good night’s sleep. Over days or weeks they have gradually increasing periods of awareness, till they are awake.
For me it was a combination of pain and not being able to move enough to even put on chapstick. I couldn’t lift my arm off the bed let alone go to the bathroom. Its kind of like being an adult newborn- complete dependence on nurses and other staff for everything. I couldn’t even push the call button so my parents slept in the chairs in my room in case I needed something. I also had pneumonia after being on a ventilator for 3 weeks. So, basically, at best you get a few hours of sleep here and there with good medication.
I was in a coma for over a week last year and most of waking up from it was a blur. I don’t know what it’s like for other people but I barely remember the transition from in a coma to being lucid. It went from crazy dreams to crazy hallucinations to one day just being thirsty as shit.
