the famous vegetable brain
Introduction
 
I was diagnosed vegetative, PVS, and I am not anymore. Nobody will change that. https://youtu.be/ltGRQJJ5WiU

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


Keep doing your exercises, http://braininjuryknow. blogspot.com/2010/12/rehab-at- home.html. Even if it's years since your brain injury occurred.

Consciousness is important cuz u can't do anything without it. The govt took mine while I was in a coma, n now won't give it back.

I most likely have some "prodigious mental abilities" that were released by the brain bleed. This would be my biology- why I'm alive after a terrible bleed + why I'm VERY smart. The 2 have to go together. I might have other issues as well, but here are the super powers.

The Pressure Sore
The pressure sore (sometimes called bed sores if the person is in bed)
is when the skin tissue starts to break down from pressure being put on
it. You wouldn't think of it happening in bed, but to a person who doesn't
move it can. Just do this one thing ...

In December 2002, Angela suffered a massive stroke. She went into a coma. Almost 2 months later she opened her eyes. She was still out of it and that closed-eye coma was changed to an open-eye coma, Vegetative State. Angela was never made conscious again. She now writes and has made videos. She is yet...

+California Institute for Regenerative Medicine  I'm not sure what happened. I figure my Adult Stem Cells were released cuz it can be called a miracle. My right eye is no longer blind and the vision returning to it is better than my left eye. I had a severe brain bleed. I'm still in a coma on paper.
 
"Miracles" can be attributed to stem cells. We all have what is known as Adult Stem Cells. These aren't as good as the Embryonic Stem Cells used in research, but they can be good enough.

U can see the bars of my bed in the picture. It's a hospital bed. The bed isn't in a hospital, but it's in my house. This is strange indeed. Here it is I should still be in a coma in a medical setting (subacute was my last placement). I managed to get out (with all my medical issues). I am conversing n writing. I make many posts. These are signs of consciousness. My current diagnosis doesn't allow it (It's "semi-vegetative"). The petition is to give me my consciousness back. It's like the Cowardly Lion asking for courage or the Scarecrow asking for a brain. I most likely have some "prodigious mental abilities" that were released by the brain bleed. This is the next post.

When I was in S California getting a pressure sore was used as a scare tactic cuz a famous actor died from 1. If his caregivers caught it small, n he could stand 1 day of boredom, he would have had a different outcome.

The pressure sore (sometimes called bed sores if the person is in bed) is when the skin tissue starts to break down from pressure being put on it. U wouldn't think of it happening in bed, but to person who doesn't move it can. Just do this 1 thing n u'll see...sit (laying will take longer) in 1 position 30min with no changes. Most will want to at least shift their weight after 15 min. Ur not allowed to.

The person sitting in a wheel chair can't adjust every 15-20 min. If can do 30min without moving, go the full hr. Your bottom may become uncomfortable. This is an area that develops pressure sores.

Sores start as redness n we don't think about them. When it reaches the further stages, medical intervention, maybe even hospitalization might be needed.

Caregivers should always check for redness, usually when undressing. Check when removing an AFO or brace. People laying in bed should be turned on a side every few hrs.
