Man Awakens After 12 Years And Says He Was Aware Of Everything. It was back in the 1980’s when the doctors told Martin that he had Cryptococci Meningitis which is a fatal fungal disease.

Martin’s health began to deteriorate, along with his ability to move, make eye contact and speak. Doctors informed his parents that it’s best to just let him die because he’s just as good as a vegetable. Hanging onto hope that their son would still make it, his parents refused to let him die as they still treated him like he was still alive. Showering him in the morning, taking him to the special care center and picking him back up. With no sign of improvement, Martin’s mother grew frustrated and even told his son “I hope you die”. Now that Martin is 39 years-old and married, he remembers everything that went on around him. He says “Yes, I was there, not from the very beginning, but about two years into my vegetative state, I began to wake up. I was aware of everything, just like any normal person. Everyone was so used to me not being there that they didn’t notice when I began to be present again. The stark reality hit me that I was going to spend the rest of my life like that — totally alone.” Wow! Talk about freaky and scary! Really makes you think and feel for those that are in the vegetative state right now. Read more about Martin and how he survived being “Trapped” here and drop your comments below.
