I give a brief synopsis of my history.
Initially I was unconscious. No question there my medical records state it. http://thoughtfulveg.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-medical-records-of-horror-story.html Well, when I opened my eyes, I was supposedly still unconscious. I was diagnosed as that. I was deemed vegetative (PVS, not MCS). PVS is Persistent Vegetative State and later becomes "Permanent" if recovery doesn't shortly happen. This was me.
I slowly got better. "She's gonna die, anyways," was the thought. I managed to get out of a hospital setting. I did up my diagnosis to "semi-vegetative." It was still vegetative, though.
Not only did I not die, but you are reading my account.
The local newspaper did a story, http://thoughtfulveg.blogspot.com/2012/02/angela.html The pictures are at the hospital that sent me home. I was not typing at that point. I sent the man next to me in those top photos a message, but that was difficult. You can read I was a vegetable.
I keep telling people I am getting better. Only a few believe me. Someone is impressed with my speech improvement and makes some study videos. A year later I made my own.
A year after that I published an update.
