The world around us becomes completely different if we can't express ourselves physically. It can be very difficult for a person who cannot speak or move to communicate with the world. It is a very helpless feeling. But this man was in a coma for 12 years and he was apparently conscious and could perceive everything around him. He could see people, recognize them and hear them talking. The only thing he couldn't do was express himself through expressions or words. The loneliness and anxiety this man felt would be completely uncanny and almost gave everyone chills just hearing about it.
Doctors said that his condition would deteriorate and he would slowly lose all of his senses and not be able to perceive the world around him.
Once, a physical therapist noticed a flicker in his eye and that's when his treatment began and there was hope to improve.
He communicates through a voice recognition system on his laptop because his throat and voice box haven't been able to recover yet.
