My hubby went into a coma, 7 days which is not as long as some I know. He's recovering well only he just seems to have lost his personality. He says sometimes he is low but most of the time he just feels normal but different.
He doesn't smile or laugh is quiet and says he's not feeling depressed (again some days low)
I keep telling him from other stories it looks like it takes a while to get back to normal. But I've also heard some people just loose a piece of themselves for the long haul. I don't really know how to judge it. Physically I can see improvements but mentally and personality he's just different altogether. He was the loudest person in the room previously and now a shadow of his former self.
Did anyone experience short term a similar situation or indeed long lasting personality change?
I am here for him regardless I just don't know what to tell him. He says "I was only in a week" and I say that is long enough to expect a long recovery.
He's just different in his personality even on his good days and I miss him so much. We as a family are going through it with him. He had pneumonia and sepsis and I found him dead on the bed so I am just happy to have him here but I am also struggling so much.
Any similar stories out there? From a wife's perspective maybe also? I'm struggling so much x
