I wonder if the fact that there have been so few posts on here recently means fewer people are being traumatized by their time in ICU? It would be nice to think so. I know ICU staff are aware of the problem, and do their best.
It's five years since I spent a month in ICU, Eleven days and nights with that tube down my throat. At the time I thought I'd never be the same again, that I'd never recover from the nightmare of it all.
But I have recovered, I am me again, I rarely think about it.
Good health and good luck to all ICU patients, past, present, and future. And big hugs to the ones who are in the nightmare at this moment. xx
