He Was In A Coma For 12 Years And Was Awake For 10 Of Them

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.
