During my missing 53 day in ICU in 2010/11 where I can remember nothing (from my diary entries I think it was a good thing) but some of the most frightening nightmares which I can remember as if it was yesterday.
I was wondering if anyone had any bizarre hallucinations once out of a coma? I can remember some very amusing ones, I saw red spider webs all across the ceiling which turned into infra red beams in a grid pattern and then pointing them out to the cleaners.
I was moved around the unit with my bed in different bays, while in one bay I was facing the two isolation rooms which provided more strange sights, I believed behind one of the beds was a fish tank then when I looked again it had changed back to all the machines and monitors, then I would see the nurses put overalls on and go in the room next to it and start painting it yellow I later found out they wore yellow aprons for that room.
The must bizarre one came after I had been there about 10 weeks, in the bed next to me was someone in full motorbike leathers and a crash helmet, the nurses told me he had been there 7 months and was going home that day, he had had a bad accident and severed both legs which they sewed back on he then got up and walked out the door.
I also believed my family told me things which they denied, they said it must have been the drugs.
I hope it's raised a few smiles, best wishes to all the community here.
