      1. I agree, it felt so weird to come back to reality. The experiences of the time in coma was a chapter for itself to go through and try to understand. I was only hospitalized for 2 months and had the first 5 weeks at ICU. My life changed forever and I changed too.


          1. Thank you Cee. Until now I haven’t been able to get all those experiences out of my system, not to write about them and not to talk much about them. It is now 2,5 years ago. I hope to be able to in this year.


  1. How can it be that after all this time I just learned your name was Christine? Have you written about coming out of your coma? I’d like to hear. I can imagine it might be confusing, but what caused the pain? And did the world seem changed to you? In what ways?
    Thanks for playing along. As a reward, we’ll never make you eat mustard.


    1. The whole experience would be a novel. I’m just not a good enough writer to attempt it. I probably have not written a lot about my coma experiences, during or recovery afterwards. I remember the first thing Chris said to me is “we know your blood type now”, Thankfully, I’m AB positive, the universal recipient. I ended up having several transfusions. I remember things both painful and fun during my coma. Upon awakening, I could talk because my throat was so damaged from tubes and procedures they had to do with my throat. In fact I couldn’t talk for months above a whisper and not even that much at first. Every muscle in my atrophied so I couldn’t even move a finger. It is quite painful emotionally and physically to re-learn how to move your fingers and the rest of the body. The world changed in so many ways, the big thing is I was in a wheel chair and couldn’t walk. I went in the hospital in the winter and came out of the hospital July 5 in Colorado and it was over 100 degrees, IN my mind it was still winter. I was so out of sync the the ordinary.


          1. You should. It is an experience not many have had but all fear a bit, I think–wondering what it is really like. Is one in a coma aware of anything? Can they hear people talking? Do they come in and out of it?
