I have a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Special Education. I worked in disability, early childhood disability, and for mental health prior to my incident. (For some reason I knew what to do, but couldn't move. I now have limited movement. All of this is typed with one finger.)
I'm a "vegetable", or PVS. I now have 1 finger I use.
My local newspaper did a story which a friend scanned into here, http://thoughtfulveg.blogspot.com/2012/02/angela.html

Excuse me, but I used to be blind in my right eye and now I'm not, and nobody sees that as a big deal ? I've

over-the-counter eye medication is reversing the damage caused by MS.

The actual diagnosis is "semi-vegetative" which u may have a hard time finding.
"It is possible that I was vegetative, PVS, and my progression has been towards Locked-In Syndrome." ppl in coma showing consciousness on a scan are most likely totally locked-in. They can't even open their eyes. Medicine has advanced to where it can identify them. Save them would be next.
So many ppl have now said I've had LIS it's not funny. The visioh problem threw ppl.
here's the misdiagnosis.
I don't know what I am, but it is definitely not vegetative. A
grad student once proposed that what I have is more like an extension of Locked-In
Syndrome. This person knew nothing about how I previously believed that I
had Locked-In Syndrome compounded ...
In the beginning of my disability, I thought I had Locked-In Syndrome. It was mistaken for being vegetative, or PVS. " THE WALLED IN ALIVE DISEASE! (French term for locked-in syndrome)" is plain to see here. http://spiritualscientific.com/DrMorseBlog/2010/...
Doctors kept saying it was like a brainstem bleed. My AVM was next to the pons. The cerebellum isn't in the brainstem, but the pons is. When my AVM bled, a lot went to the pons. Insult to the pons is associated with Locked-In Syndrome. As I regained consciousness, I could observe, but not react. I couldn't even blink my eyes at 1st. This is that consciousness in persons in coma
To figure how the stem cells were triggered, I need a biologist. Anyone? Is there any literature on blood flow n stem cells? A small Central American country is purporting they do a procedure that releases Adult Stem Cells. How? What's the procedure? Or have they just found a way to make a buck off the rich? I am still left with blood running down the spinal cord. I know there are powerful stem cells there. The blood had to have triggered stem cell production.
In the video...I think just like Sherlock Holmes.
If u know an SfN member, then pls help.
