While I Was Sleeping

The first thing I heard was a voice saying, "You've been in a Coma, don't try to talk"  but that all I wanted to do.  However I was prevented from speaking because of the Trachea tube in my throat.  It had been 32 days since I had been taken to the ER and I have no memory of that happening at all.  There is so much to tell about the experience that it's hard to know where to start.  All that I know is this is were the life and career I had built had stopped and a new life of relearning everything I thought I knew was to begin.  This included walking, talking and the very simple things that I took for granted everyday.  After being in the Hospital for 2 months and then a Rehabiltation Center (Nursing Home) I lost everything, my home my pets and my job.  I am now Disabled and I have never felt this way before, ever.  My Brain was damaged from the lack of oxygen and my Blood Sugar dropping to 5.  I have no one in my life that understands what I am going through.  I lost my entire world and you must adjust because if you don't people think you are able to get on with the life you have left.
