Dear fellow coma victims,

Recovery is a reconstruction of self.

It has been the most difficult time of my life, re-establishing identity, independence. My family took other views on how to proceed. They contested many things including my marriage and finances. I was legally challenged at a government VCAT court hearing. We shouldn’t control people’s lives but accept the choices they make. It has been a tumultuous experience for all concerned. I accept my family’s difficulties but try living it.

I would just be another consumer amongst the 8 billion of us without my experiences. We all have unique lives and try to live according to the values we have understood, experienced. Thanks coma for enriching my experience, just let me walk again.
