Why would a doctor do this? What happened?
From that description, I am dead.
The word 'decerebrate' stands out to me. It's used in some circles as a term for brain-dead.
1. to eliminate cerebral function by transection of the brainstem or ligation of the common carotid arteries and basilar artery at the center of the pons.
Now this gets funny to me. Do I appear to be dead? Um...I want a second opinion.
I was only mostly dead, though. I didn't have any miracle workers or magic pills. I did it all on my own.
Of the countless near death experiences, how many of them have actual medical reports purporting brain death? That's what's so special. I am brain dead. To make it even more amazing, you get what came with me before...high intelligence and memory. So a brain-dead person is writing to you. I am having a very hard time getting my diagnosis changed because 'no one comes back from death.'
I can't get a second opinion because the first one was written in permanent ink. All I can say to all of this is, "I was never all the way dead!"
