Last year, I fell critically ill after contracting a rare virus, and went into a coma with extremely low prospects for survival. AMA
Mid-year last year, I contracted a rare mosquito-borne tropical virus, and fell into a coma for almost two weeks. The doctors in the hospital did not think I had any chance of coming out alive, and believed I would be in a permanent vegetative state if I did.
Coming out of the coma gave me insight into what it would have been like to have died, and what legacy it would have left behind; as well as a unique insight into what is valuable in life, and what I would have regretted and what I would have been proud of.
Ark me anything; I'd like to think what I have to share could help!
