Is This Recovery?
I was in a coma in Nov. 2010 from septic shock (you can read my story on the sepsis shock forum). I had vivid dreams and hallucinations while sleeping. I don't remember people talking to me or particular procedures being done. I have traced some dreams and hallucinations to particular events that happened to me. At times I felt like I was in hell. One dream was that I was in the hospital, but at night when all the families and day staff left, the night staff moved all the patients to the basement and left us there. People were screaming for help and crying, it was dark and wet. I tried to tell my family but they didn't believe me. Another dream has me laying on the beach relaxing. I still have these dreams, no matter what my mind frame is when I go to sleep, they creep in. Sometimes I dread going to bed, because I know I'll be up in a few hours reliving my illness. I was just wondering if anyone else had the same experience. People always say they can hear and feel things while in a coma, I didn't, is that weird?
