So, my son was what surprised me."—u/PennyCundiff"He said he just wanted to be told what was real and what was happening."—u/Blameking27"What I learned later from my wife is that she was there the whole time and while I was fighting against the doctors and nurses, I would immediately calm down and cooperate when she held my hand and sang to me. It still brings tears to my eyes to think of the love and devotion she has shown to me during this time."—u/Tinman556—u/horsman"Although, I’d be lying if I said I never wondered what my life would be like if I’d never had the coma."—u/heyrainyday"There was a woman, one floor below him, in a coma who sadly had passed away before he woke up. Even though your life has moved on, they may wake up one day, and in their mind, not a day has passed since the last conversation they had with you."—u/croatianscentsation"She doesn't have any memories of the year prior or the year and a half after her coma and obviously no memories of the car crash.She suffered a TBI (traumatic brain injury), and when she first got out of the coma, she would get naked and sexual with people and anger very easily. I remember having the hardest time believing it was actually mid-October when the last day I remembered was late-September."—u/iwillcorrectyou"I spent two weeks in the coma and another 48 days. If I can say anything about what happened that day, it's that it changed my life for the better." —u/XxBURNB0YxX"Even after we explained to her the reality of where she was, it took DAYS for her to come to terms with reality."—u/kp1877—u/robyr"I can't say that I knew I was in a coma or anything. They're doing their rounds, and he walks in the room and says something, and she immediately recognizes his voice; she came into the hospital in a coma and never saw the man, and never heard him talk while she was awake before that day. Whenever he reminds me of something I said in the past, usually something I can't even remember, I suggest that we hit him in the head again."—u/cheezemeister_x"I was in and out of surgery and died a couple times in that time.
