2016.08.03 05:16 InfernoxGaming A Self-Help Guide to Removing Your Phantom Pains

Please consider playing this while reading. And just in case, no I don't own any of the links in this post. :)
Hello everyone. My name is u/InfernoxGaming, and I am a massive shitposting faggotavid Metal Gear enthusiast. I have played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for probably close to six hundred hours, and I have finally realized I do not care for the game anymore. So let me preface my story by telling you my honest opinion: Metal Gear Solid V is...
Despite all this, playing the game enough will fill you a feeling of wanting more! You will want what you know you cannot get: more in-game content that is satisfying! So many FOBs, so much replayed missions, just so much content, and nothing to play! You are feeling THE PHANTOM PAINS. But you are not alone; you can escape this pain, and that's without Adderall and a whole bottle of tequilaNoctocyanin and Phantom Cigars! Let us go into detail as to my story on how I eliminated my Phantom Pain from playing the game, and how you can too!
Chapter One: Hideo
Perhaps you bought Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at launch. Maybe you pre-ordered it. Like me, maybe you bought it at a later date on a whim. Was it on sale for you? Konami would be feeling the Phantom Discount if it was, in which case, you are on your way already to easing your Phantom Pain!
First of all, to eliminate your Phantom Pain, you must first acknowledge it. Check your Steam library or your video game shelf. Is there a MGSV sitting in there? Well, if there is, chances are you have begun playing it! And now those achievements / trophies are waiting for you to max them out! As such, you need to play the single player campaign.
Prepare your body for Keifer Sutherland's amazing vocal parasites, a consistent narrative with memorable locations in each given mission, and plot threads that never dangle their dongle into the vagina of uncertainty. This game will ensure you never have children, meaning you can't feel the Phantom Child. Honestly, that's a plus, because why spend your hard-earned money on a kid when you could instead be buying Mother Base coins?
That's right, Snakes! You could toil away like me for six hundred hours just to get all the gear released up until a year-and-a-half ago, or you could just lube up Konami's Big Green Pachinko Machine with some digital Ben Franklins and ride Pequod's chopper to prosperity within two hundred hours! It's beautiful, isn't it? But spending money isn't enough to remove that Phantom Pain of yours; after all, you still need to farm resources.
This is where you truly need to excel, as only master Gears have the metal to reach that number one spot on the leaderboard. You just need to inject some Red Bull and quit your job. You must play MGSV until you are top of the leaderboard. Invade every FOB. Steal every resource. Kill what will never be yours. Be the Snake that Snake would want you to be, which is the polar opposite of Snake because there is only one Snake but you can be close enough if you want I guess. Need money? Fill out a survey sponsored by Konami, and they'll send you Mother Base coins that can be redeemed for real life currency (1 Bitcoin = 1 Nickel = 1 Upfulton).
Now you have sixteen nukes! MetalGearPatriots loves you! MetalGearPhilanthropy loathes you! kojimapro endorses you! It's the big life being top of the leaderboard!
But even the top can get boring. To have reached this far, invaders are scarce and lost resources are easily reclaimed. You probably have memorized the layout of every base and outpost. Every sheep has been Fultoned by D-Dog, every helicopter shot down by D-Walker, every guard tranquilized by D-Quiet. You even find no joy in procuring more resources, as there's nothing left to use them on. This is the worst part of the Phantom Pains, because you feel as though you must go on: because you can, even though you feel you shouldn't.
Chapter Two: Kojima
Awwwww yeah look at this! Man, my one-month blockade ain't going away anytime soon, so let's look at this new content! You can play with other people online! Survival lobbies are full and brimming with skilled players ready to friend you! Look at this nice Maojin player sending you a neat message on how to get gud at the game! You've made a friend :)
Customize your character! Customize your loadout! Customize your ping! And now you're set to go out with your combat knife and hide in a bush for twenty minutes to get three kills and be at the bottom of the leaderboard but damn are you working for those codenames.
Can't you see how much fun this is? You get four game types! FOUR! That's 400% more multiplayer than the original Metal Gear Solid had, and if it has more it must be better!
But even you get bored of this after a while. I know I did. Fultoning Nukes, earning medals, and
Host Disconnected. Returning to main menu.
But even you get bored of this after a while. I know I did. Fultoning Nukes, earning medals, and sliding around in cardboard boxes can only entertain you for so long (roughly one hundred hours, give or take how many surveys you need to fill to buy the Quiet DLC). Did you enjoy MGO and meeting up online with you Reddit buddies? Well I hope you did, because I sure did too! But yet despite swearing off the main campaign, I still felt the Phantom Pains even in MGO3 :(
Well fret not! As I have stated, both single-player and multiplayer will never remove your Phantom Pains, because all they do is increase it. Think about it: what about all that sweet story content lost forever? What about MGO2? Why can't we utilize Revolver Ocelot as a buddy? Why won't u/flashmedallion return my calls?
I had to cover campaign and multiplayer you see, because now you know both are not the answer! Because the one true way to remove your Phantom Pains from Hideo Konjami's Grey FoxSwan Song is explained below in Chapter 3 of my Guide!

2014.08.13 23:05 The_Dalek_Emperor The Afterlife Experiment

I’ve always felt a little lost in life, like I never received complete instructions on who I'm supposed to be. Everyone else around me seemed to know exactly who they were. Their lives would fly right by me; their GPS’s locked on to destinations while I just sat idling in the street. In high school I never did any extracurricular activities because I couldn't figure out if I was a sports person or a music person. And it was no different in college. I wandered through four different majors, unable to decide who I wanted to be. I just felt like a blank slate.
And if I was a blank slate, Micah York was The Starry Night - authentic, beautiful, perfect. He was my exact antithesis which is what attracted me to him in the first place. He was born knowing exactly who he was and what he was about. His confidence and certainty in himself was an all but tangible element of him.
We first met in our freshman year of college; he was a Neuroscience student and I was majoring in History. We dated our sophomore year, after I changed my major to Computer Sciences. We broke up in our junior year, just before I decided I wanted a degree in Psychology, instead. And he asked me a favor our senior year, just after my guidance counselor told me it was too late to switch majors again.
Our last semester of college was beginning soon and Micah had been applying to grad schools. He wanted to get his Masters in Neurobiology and I helped him with the applications when I had time. I knew Micah was under a lot of stress to nail his senior thesis so I was surprised when he asked me over to his house for a “party” that January. I should have known something was up because Micah was a meticulous student and he didn’t throw parties – ever.
When I arrived at his off campus apartment, I considered not even getting out of the car. His flat was dark and quiet, there was definitely no party. Just what was he up to? I picked up my phone to call Micah and beg off but curiosity suddenly got the better of me and I hung up.
When I walked into the familiar TV-less living room I saw two familiar faces and two strange ones.
There was Micah, of course, and Micah’s friend Sean Nichols, an Organic Chemistry major. The other two people were introduced to me as Irina Bradley, another med student, and Holly Bishop, a Philosophy major. Irina the med student scooted over and made room for me on the couch. I sat down hesitantly and waited for Micah to begin whatever it was he was doing. He rose and walked to the middle of the room.
"Thanks for coming, guys. I’m sure you’re wondering why you’re here because, clearly, this isn’t a party. The truth is I have something of vital importance to ask each of you.”
Micah paused, for effect I’m sure, took a deep breath and dropped his voice an octave.
“I have selected each of you to take part in the greatest experiment of not only your lives but perhaps even in human history. I am asking you to take part in my doctoral thesis."
I rolled my eyes. Classic Micah. He may be many things, but humble wasn’t one of them. Jackass appeared to be, though.
"And what is your thesis?" I asked him nonchalantly, as if his previous statement hadn’t been utterly stupid.
"A conclusive essay detailing what happens after human death.”
Irina the med student laughed. Sadly, I knew Micah well enough to know he was being serious.
"How do you intend to prove anything?" I asked. "What kind of experiments have you designed?”
"Well, Bridget, I’m going to kill myself."
The room fell quiet and Micah, mistaking the shocked horror for awed silence, stood a little taller and finally smiled.
"You can't be serious."
"Oh, I am and it's completely reversible. I am going to be the first person in the world to prove or disprove the existence of an afterlife."
"We," demanded Sean.
"Yes, we. This paper is going to be our ticket into any university in the world. Wars have been waged for centuries over deities and religions and we are going to prove what is scientifically correct beyond a shadow of a doubt!"
"You're an idiot," I sighed and rose from the couch to leave. Irina followed me but Micah beat us to the door.
"Bridget, wait! At least hear all of it before you walk away. Please."
I narrowed my eyes at him and shook my head.
“I want no part in killing anyone. Even you.”
"I'd like to hear how it works." Holly the Philosophy major coolly cut in from her spot on the couch.
"Ah, actually, it's something I developed." Sean said. "A cocktail of biological and non-biological chemicals. It's been tested and it's safe."
"Tested?" Irina asked in horror. "On whom?"
"On local wildlife.”
"So never on a person.” I said.
"Not yet but it is safe.” Sean said quickly.
"So then how does it work?" Irina asked. She took a step back toward the couch and that’s when I knew they had her.
Micah gestured to Sean.
"I've developed a poison and a biologic. I call them the Romeo and Juliet serums. Juliet is a poison that kills the body. Romeo is a biologic, or antidote for lack of a better word, that revives it."
"Clinical death will only take place for 30 seconds.” Micah cut in. “No brain damage, no organ damage."
“Yes, it truly is perfectly safe; the body will only be dead for a short time.” Sean confirmed.
"So, Flatliners." I glared at Micah.
"What?" Sean asked.
"Flatliners, it's a movie. The characters kill themselves and bring themselves back. If I recall it didn't work out too well for them in the film. But Micah knows that since he’s obsessed with it.”
"That's a Hollywood movie.” Micah said, dryly. “This is legitimate science." "No, you're Kiefer Sutherland,” I pointed at him, “he's Kevin Bacon," I pointed at Sean, "and I'm Julia fucking Roberts!"
"No," Micah said hotly, "actually she's Julia fucking Roberts!" He pointed to Holly.
"So am I Oliver Platt, then?" asked Irina.
"No one is Oliver Platt!" Micah yelled.
"Well, if we get to choose I'd rather be Oliver Platt than Kevin Bacon." Sean interrupted.
"Sean, you're fucking Kevin Bacon." Micah spat.
"And you're Keifer Sutherland!" I yelled at him.
I sighed. "So I'm not going under."
"No." Micah looked exasperated.
"Then why am I here?"
Micah combed his hand through his dark brown hair. "Jesus, I've been trying to get to that.”
"Am I going under?" Irina asked.
"No, just me, Sean and Holly."
"And you think she's going to agree to that?"
"Actually," Holly interrupted, rising from the couch. "I already have."
"Why?" I gaped at her.
"Because I want to know, I need to know why I'm here, why any of us are here. I want to know what the soul is and where it goes, I want to hold the keys to human existence, love and suffering, life and death. I want to understand our purpose. And I'm getting paid and it's perfect for my dissertation."
"That's another thing," Micah said quickly, "everyone will get paid."
"How much?" Irina narrowed her eyes at him.
"$500 each."
I groaned. $500 was pretty much how short I was on tuition for this semester and Micah knew that. What an ass.
"The Romeo and Juliet serums are safe. They've been tried and tested and they will work. Sean and I have rented a house on Emerald Street to conduct the experiment. All I need, all I'm asking, is for you to show up, Bridget. Just show up next Saturday."
"And what about me?" asked Irina.
"Irina, I need you to administer the serums and monitor vital signs. Look guys, this whole thing will take less than a minute and then you guys can walk away with your five hundred dollars and a credit on my thesis.” "And what makes your evidence, which is pretty much just your testimony, conclusive?" I asked.
"The serums Sean developed will be available to anyone and everyone and they can repeat my experiment at their leisure."
“But I don’t think that-“
"Please, Bridget, just show up on Saturday."
There wasn't one facet of this little science experiment that didn't make me profoundly uncomfortable. But the way Micah looked at me, the tension in the room, the five hundred dollars...
"I'm not asked, Bridget. I'm begging." Micah grabbed my hands and squeezed.
"I'll think about it."
I wasn't really surprised to find myself at the house on Emerald Street that following Saturday. I'd debated about it all week but in the end - all other factors not withstanding - I was curious. Micah was brilliant, top 1% of his class, several published papers; what if he was right? What if he did see something? People have near death experiences everyday and came back with stories. Micah was going deeper into death than anyone ever had ever come back from before and he was doing it in a controlled environment using an experiment that could be easily duplicated. I mean, who knows?
Micah greeted me at the door with a smile that said he knew I’d come and walked me to the large, barren living room. It sported tan walls, hardwood floors, lots of hospital equipment and 3 cheap looking twin beds.
Sean and Holly were already laying on two of the beds with nervous smiles on their faces and IVs in their arms. Irina was bustling around checking equipment and looking incredibly stressed.
Micah handed me an expensive looking, heavy camera. "The cameras at the end of our beds are already recording – they’re our static cameras. I need you to walk around and record with this one as well. Irina is going to stagger our injections so that she can handle all three of us. You are simply a witness, nothing more."
"Okay... Micah, are sure you want to do this?"
"Bridget, we've been testing this and as long as Romeo is injected in under a minute, which it will be, there is no risk."
"There’s definitely risk, Micah. And near death experiences-"
"This isn't a near death experience, it's a death experiment. Look, I know you’re worried, and that’s why I wanted you here, to make sure nothing goes wrong. And even if it does, I have stacks and stacks of notes and narratives proving that this was my experiment."
"Yeah, but…”
I couldn't think of anything else to say. Any objection I had, Micah would have an answer for. That's just the way he was. There was no stopping him now; I could either be here to see it or be somewhere else to hear about it. I chose to stay.
Micah walked over to stand in front of my camera.
“It’s 12:51PM on Saturday, January 14th. I am Micah York and this is the first attempt of the afterlife experiment.”
Micah walked over to his bed and sat down, letting Irina expertly thread a needle into his vein. He lay back on the pillow and turned to Sean and Holly.
"Remember, guys, as soon as you regain consciousness speak directly to your cameras about what you saw.”
“Got it."
"Okay guys," Irina said with a shaky voice. "Everything is ready."
"Alright,” Micah said, excitedly, “30 seconds, that's all. Irina, as soon as the last of the Juliet leaves the tube, hit this timer." Micah pointed to the digital clocks that were set to 00:30 at the head of each bed. Irina nodded.
"Bridget, you film." I swallowed loudly and nodded too.
"See you on the other side," Micah smiled and gave a thumbs up to Holly and Sean who returned it and then settled back on their beds. I hit record. Irina picked up three red tubes of thick, clear liquid from a nearby table. Steadying her hands, she slowly injected the first tube into Micah's IV, and then hit the timer above him. At the exact moment she did, Micah's heart-rate monitor flat-lined. I jumped at the high-pitched squeal and tried to steady the camera.
Irina hurriedly moved over to Sean and did the same for him and then Holly. Now all three EKG machines were loudly flat-lining. Irina put her hands over her ears for a minute and then pointed to a different monitor. "Get this! Bridget, record this!" It was Micah's EEG and there were zero active brain waves. "Get Holly and Sean's too!"
I could suddenly taste a bitter metal in my mouth and I knew I was beginning to panic. This had been a bad idea, a very bad idea. By the time I looked back over to Micah's timer there was 8 seconds left on it. Irina had already loaded up a green tube, the Romeo biologic, to Micah's IV and was just waiting to push it in.
The chorus of all three EKG machines wildly sounding their alarms was deafening. It was screaming at us: “Do something! DO something! Why are you just standing there? Save them!”
Just when I couldn’t stand it anymore, a different alarm buzzed and Irina injected the Romeo into Micah’s arm. I didn't breathe at all as I waited for Micah's vital monitors to show life. It took less than 5 seconds for the EKG machine to register a spike. And then another. Micah's EEG machine suddenly flared to life as well. I exhaled.
Irina had just stepped over to Sean when Micah suddenly shot up in bed, eyes wide, and opened his mouth. I was so excited and curious that I almost forgot to hold the camera up. I couldn’t wait to hear what he had to say.
But Micah didn't say anything. He just screamed. The surprise and force of it made me stumble back into a wall. It was the most blood-curling scream I had ever heard. And then, Sean started screaming, too. Micah took no notice of him and threw himself off the bed to the floor, slamming his head on the wood over and over again. Sean had also jumped out of bed and run over to the wall to stand just 2 inches from it, screaming at it, as if he didn't know the wall was there.
My shock quickly gave way to panic. Micah's head was already bloody and the sound it made against the hard oak was sickening.
"Irina, help me!"
Irina, who hadn't moved since Sean had knocked her out of the way, stared at me wide-eyed.
"We need to get him off the floor, he's hurting himself!"
She opened her palm and looked down at the last tube of Romeo biologic as if she'd never seen it before.
"You didn't give that to her yet?! Give that to Holly! Now!" My voice was high and wild. I was holding Micah in my arms while he continued to hit his head against the air, as if the floor were still there. And the screaming, oh God, the screaming.
Both Micah and Sean were splitting my ears open. The horror on Micah's face as he beat his head harmlessly against the air, mouth open in a wide O and the sharp, agonizing terror coming out of Sean was enough to make me my eyes well up in fear. What had happened? What had they seen? The camera, long forgotten, lay discarded under Micah's bed where his flailing legs had kicked it. Irina was doing frantic chest compressions on Holly, tears streaming from her eyes. But I knew it was too late, Holly was lost.
"Irina, Irina, call 911." She didn't stop working on Holly, just continued on like she hadn't heard me. And perhaps she hadn't. The screaming... I let go of Micah just for a moment to grab my phone and he was up and running. He hit the front door and smashing his forehead against the glass.
"Micah, stop!"
If Sean noticed us near him, he didn't show it. He just continued that piercing, horrible scream.
Emergency services couldn't hear me on the phone but they had someone at the house within 5 minutes. A very, very long 5 minutes. Irina gave up on Holly at some point and just paced around the room mumbling "I don't understand. I did it right. I don't understand."
They took Sean, Holly and Micah away in an ambulance and they took me and Irina to the police station. They watched the videos. I never graduated but at least I didn't go to prison like Irina. I retreated into myself after her trial and refused to speak to anybody. I spent months holed up in my apartment asking the same question over and over.
What did they see?
And it's not like I could ask them. Sean had screamed until he permanently lost the use of his voice. Now he sits in a room in a hospital facing a wall with his mouth wide open as if he were screaming. And somehow, that's worse than the screaming. He hasn't said or written a word since that day. Micah, he's in a hospital too. Sometimes he screams and sometimes he's quiet. Sometimes he thrashes and sometimes he lies as still as the dead. I have visited them both many times, begging them to tell me what they saw. But my visits were fruitless until this last time.
Yesterday when I visited Micah he was in his screaming stage. I sat with him and let him scream waiting to see if he would transition to one of his catatonic stages so that I could speak. When I was tired of waiting I leaned in close to his ear and I asked him.
"Micah, what did you see?"
His screaming slowly morphed into an insane, uncontrollable laughter I’d never heard before. His doctor, who’d been just outside, came running into the room.
"What did you do?" He asked, alarmed.
“I just asked him a question." I responded, quietly.
"What was the question?"
"I asked him what he saw."
We both noticed the sudden silence at the same time. We slowly turned toward Micah to find him facing us, no expression on his face.
"It's all waiting for you. It's waiting for all of us." Then his mouth fell open into a large O and the laughter slowly began again followed by shrill, horrible screams.
I left the hospital that day wishing I had never come at all, wishing I'm never met Micah. I drove home with tears pouring down my cheeks. What did they see? What’s on the other side? Do I even want to know? But it really doesn’t matter anymore. Someday I’ll find out. And so will you.

Questions Answers
What kind of hellish nightmares? Family being ripped apart, raped, killed in ways I couldn't imagine for what seemed like 40 years, no joke that long. I had one dream where God asked me if I wanted a second chance and I said yes, then back to the nightmares. 13 Doctors said pull the plug...but I woke up beyond all belief.
So do you believe in god now? I'm curious. Or did you beleive in him before? I always have. I just didn't act like a christian.
(Hopefully) future ICU RN here. Was there anything in particular that a nurse/MD/any health care provider did during your time in the hospital that made you feel comfortable, cared for, all-around good? Great questions! Arthur, one of the nurses there is my hero of all time. He was just there for me and found out what I liked and talked about it. If he didn't know he hopped on the computer and looked it up.
Happy to see you are doing better! Hey here is also a picture of one of the ECMO Nurses who is also one of my heroes. He visited me in rehab. Link to
What was it like to be in a coma? Could you hear people or was is it like sleeping? Could you give some details and explanation? Sure, and np. In the coma I was in a world which I don't know if it was hell or not, but It was as real as life. My mother being raped, family being ripped apart, me paralyzed watching. Then they would die, and it restarted differently. Then I had the only good dream where I believe God asked me if I wanted a second chance. The feeling I had was overwhelmingly Ecstasy. Time was different. 1 day in coma was like half a year in there. I know this sounds crazy, but it's all true.
Thnx for the AMA! Some things influenced the dreams. My dad played "Hotel California", which didn't help because then I was just in a hotel with my family being ripped apart again. That's about all.
The brain is powerful. Very.
It does sound crazy, and like hell. Has it had any influence on you after you woke up? Fears/dreams coming back maybe? I don't sleep more than 3 hours a night because I have light versions of the coma nightmares, ie me cutting off my fingers.
What did God look like? I said it in a post a little higher.
What were your first words when you awoke? I had a trache (tube in throat) for 2 years. So when I first woke I could barely talk. I couldn't move because of no I started at ceiling for 3 months.
I misread this as 1.5 million billion. Lol.
Holy shit. You were in a coma and now you have 1.5 million dollars to pay off?! As a Brit, this blows my mind. Lol, America for ya.
Wow. I'm not sure how, but can we possibly get a fund going to help this guy... Heh, PAYPAL! Nah just kidding I wouldn't want to take people money now that I'm doing better especially.
I'm sure there's thousands of people that would donate, (on Reddit and throughout the world) assuming you're not already a billionaire and able to pay this debt off immediately. I make $100 a month on SSI :(..and live at home till college.
Not that it is awesome...but have you considered filing for medical bankruptcy? I've thought about it, but they don't expect much a month.
Declare bankruptcy? You're only 21. Could be an option? True.
Yep, do it now, file for bankruptcy while you are young, and it will be off your credit while you are still in your 20s. Thnx for info.
Do it. If you start to have a house or something, you would lose everything. Do it while you have no assets. Also ty for info.
What did god look like? Can you describe anything about that experience? Thank you for the AMA, comas horrify me. Yes I can in detail. He had short white almost curly hair with some grey in it. He was very tan, and wore a white suit, but I believe God can come in any form he chooses.
Like this? Yeah, but not the face and not the skin color lol. Lighter.
Thanks for the response. Has this changed your outlook on life? If you believe this was an image of hell did it change how you love life now? Are you a Christian/believer? I'm still very depressed at times, but I believe I need to make the most of my second chance and even if I fail then I tried. I am a Christian.
God is an all powerful omniscience being, but he can't prevent his hair from turning white/grey? It was peppery
Could you hear your parents and others talking to you while you were in the coma? Were you trying to answer them but your body wouldn't cooperate? No, not at all. I wish tbh.
Have you ever considered writing a book about your story? Because it is amazing! I wrote a 700 page book including almost every nightmare. I Might try and get it published. Idk. This is the first I have shared this with anyone but very close friends.
I did not expect this many positive comments. It's amazing.
If it does get published, i would love to read it :) Doubt it would, but I doubted anyone would comment on this lol.
How did your friends treat you? Did they come visit you? Did you remain friends with them after all this happened? Never came to visit me once. Haven't seen em since. I see them on facebook and they're doing well and getting engaged and such. I was surprised my best friend didnt come though. Felt terrible.
Did you realize you were an addict yourself, or did it take other people mentioning it to you? I did, and went to rehab each time voluntarily.
Did you experience any long tunnels, angels, or generally spooky shit, when you died four times? There were angels. 7 of them, but I didn't know it until they turned into bright weird looking beings.
I think we should help this guy out with his 1.5mil medical bill? Nah it's okay but thanks for the gesture.
Did you do anything to entertain yourself? Like try to do math problems in your head? Recall movies or write a novel in your mind? Anything like that. Could you watch TV? For the 3 months I listened to music, but hated it cause I couldn't pick it due to not talking or moving.
So you could hear music that was playing in your hospital room, but you couldn't hear anyone talking to you? Or was the music in your dreams? I heard music in my dreams so I assume it was being played outside of my head heh.
If you could remake your story into a motion picture, with your brain experiences included, what actors would you use to play you, your family, God (better be morgan freeman lol), the doctors, your girlfriend, and anybody else involved? Honestly morgan freeman fits God perfect lol, Sept little dark. I don't like many 17 yr old actors, but Josh Hutcherson fits that age and is pretty good at times. Sally Fields for mom, dad Keifer Sutherland, cause hes just a bad ass! Great question! Took foever lol.
I had a girlfriend who treated me like dirt 2 years after coma. Said I was too fat to be seen with in public...9 months of my life spent with that Terrible woman.
You are handsome :) Your stories of nightmares makes me weak in the knees. Why would someone have to go through something traumatic like that AFTER the trauma you already experienced? I suffer from sleep paralysis nightmares and that alone feels like i am experiencing hell. Why, oh why, would your brain put you through all that, do you think? Have the doctors explained anything like this to you? Well thank you so much! I don't get that often. The doctors didn't answer any of my questions. I've heard when you die the brain releases chemicals that create pleasure, but not vivid things like mine. More like a white light.
You are so amazing and strong! Good luck and what are your next steps? Thank you so much! In the fall I start Pre-Med.
That's great! Which school if you mind me asking? University of TN, It's all payed for by vocational rehab because of coma and overcoming addiction.
So... Did dying get easier? Well was no work required on my part lol.
Nope worse.
Since you were tortured throughout your coma, even by things the doctors and your family did, what would you recommend the loved ones of coma patients do? To make things easier for the comatose. Does anything we do in the outside world help what happens in your mind during a coma? Even soothing music had a bad effect. It's hard to say what would be good.
My dad told me it would be okay and I heard him once though.
Have you ever considered using marijuana to help cope with the pain? I'm bipolar 2 so it makes me paranoid :(
If you had one thanks to give, would it be to god or the doctors and nurses that helped you? God. I'm going to be a doctor, but they said pull the plug and there was no hope.
When you woke up from the coma did you have an overwhelming feeling of relief? Or were you in shock, pain, confusion and didn't realize what had happened? I hated the world. I felt I had just gone to hell for 40 years...not making that up. I didn't even know if it was another nightmare or real.
Was there any permanent damage to the brain? Also being in coma for 70+ days was it just like a long-term sleep paralysis? I forget names until I hear them a couple times, forget what happens in movies, stuff like that...its not too bad. And idk tbh. I just know I was on a heart-lung bypass because my lungs weren't working due to being consolidated.
What are your future plans? College? Job? Pre-med in the fall.
How does death feel like? Well only one of the times I died I remember. It was awful, but the dreams were worse tbh. It was my lungs so it was like drowning then everything goes black while u panic.
What things did you think of while in the coma? Did you have any idea what was going on around you? Yes, I had no idea it wasn't real, but I observed everything and understood and felt pain.
Could you make out anything the doctors said? If so, did anything freak you out? I new I was dying before the coma, I was freaking lol. I couldn't breathe my lungs were consolodated (like a sheet of glass covering them.
Wow crazy, I had edited the question but guessed you didn't see it. What do you have planned for the future? Going back to school? Pre-med in the fall :)
Why did you tell god "yes" to going back? I ask myself that a lot. I wish I hadn't a lot of the time. I honestly don't know. I literally felt it was his will though, but I had freewill.
What pain medicine were you on? I was on hydros, percs, then oxycontin 3x/day 30mg..I was a zombie...I was a addict, but to my credit anyone on that much would probably become addicted. Took a lot of work...after working so hard on walking, to get clean. I just have to suffer the pain in my chest and back. A nerve got wrapped around a rib and can't be fixed, and no pain pills because of my addiction. You take your's responsibly I'm sure. I didn't.
I suffer from chronic pain, it takes over your life. I think 'addicted' may not be the right word - maybe dependency instead, at least for me. I am dependant on my medication, it gives me just enough relief to do my job and provide for my family - does that mean I'm addicted though? No you're not addicted. Addicts only think about their next high.
Were you planning on the medical degree before your incident ? Not at all. I planned for culinary school.
That much hell (emotional and physical by the sound of it) and you have the emotional strength to 6 months after getting clean say "fuck it, i should do an AMA"? dude... So, hate to be the one asking the superficial question here, but all the good ones i can think of have already been posted. so how many zombie/lich/general undead jokes do you anticipate when telling future friends and relatives about this? Lol first of all thanks a bunch. Secondly...God only knows lol.
Do you remember what it was like dying? I mean, was it just a fade to black and then you're back again? I would like to believe that one of the times I died is when I saw God. Things in the dream got blurry and black until they shocked me.
Interesting, are you religious? Could you feel the shocks? Np, it's a AMA. I didn't feel the shocks, but they your ligaments in my foot when it got stuck in the bed railing and they were trying to roll me, and I had a nightmare of my foot being sawed off.
Sorry for all the questions I'm really interested. Yes I'm religious now...seeing God or not there was no hope for 2 weeks and they told mom and dad to pull the plug.
You say you died 4 times. What's it like? And if you could remember, what was it like right before you died? It's like drowning in my case and being terrified beyond belief.
How long did it take you to learn how to walk again ? first comment on reddit btw. 2 years to walk 4 to run (which was about 3 months ago).
You said that while in the coma you had extensive nightmares for what felt like 40 years but that you also saw God. This may be a silly question, but if you had the choice at the onset of your sickness to continue living a normal life, or to go through your ordeal (which included seeing God Himself), which would you choose? In other words, was seeing God worth 40 years of nightmare? Wow, considering I only saw him for 5 minutes that's a hard one. Honestly I don't think I would be as strong of a person if I didn't go through all I went through and def not as good of a doctor if I pass med school. So there's that. The chronic pain is torture though.
Thanks for the answer! Best of luck to you in the future. U as well!
Do you have a girlfriend now? Sadly no. Everyone I new even my best friends never came to see me while I was relearning to walk, and especially not when I was a druggie.
Were you a jerk to be around? I only ask becuase some druggies are just not pleasant to be around. No, a zombie lol.
I'm extremely well mannered and was raised to be polite even as a druggie ;)
You say you talked to God which is amazing! Do you remember if you were in heaven? What did the setting and scenery look like? Did you have all your senses? My senses were on overload of orgasmic proportions. It was in a wheat field, don't ask me why lol. He grabbed me from a nightmare or hell (can't prove if it was rl) then brought me to a safe place. He asked me if I wanted a second chance, but I had to answer in a certain way, and somehow I new how. He showed me my life in flashes and I had to say yes or know when I saw myself being born because I was pure and sinless. Weird idk.
Did god explain why he gave you the nightmares? The nightmares basically sound like hell, literally. I like to believe I wasn't truly saved and went to hell and God gave me a second chance for some reason even though I don't deserve it.
I feel like that too. Its hard to deal with because I was raised athiest. I was raised christian, but thought for myself instead of having it pounded into me. I do believe in God especially now, but I understand being raised atheist its hard to believe at all.
After reading your responses, I say you definitely do deserve it. Take care man. I didn't expect so many people to care so much. The positivist is crazy. Ty u tk as well.
If you are disabled, you should be getting government benefits and theoretically they should be retroactive to the start of the disablement. That should get you on govt healthcare which should remedy the medical bills? Can't say I'm 100% positive of that, but something you should investigate. I just have SSI because I live at home so it doesn't remedy it.
Did they ever do a brain scan on you to see if there was activity in your skull? If so, what did it show? You obvously has some conciensness. They were to worried about my lungs and heart at the time. I was to unstable for drilling holes in my skull.
They didnt care enough for the easier route either lol.
Why didn't you give up? I.E. What was your inspiration? Honestly, once I new I would probably live I felt I needed to do something important with my life. If I can help one person I'll be happy.
Interesting. I'm glad you pulled through. Thank you for your time. Ty as well.
I've had cancer twice. The second time turned me bitter and angry for quite awhile. You don't seem to be that way. Why? I'm so sorry you've had cancer. I was bitter and angry. I was addicted to drugs as well, but something changed late last year. I just deal with the pain and keep moving as best I can.
What is your opinion on heaven? When you died, did you have any encounters with the supernatural, a "light at the end of the tunnel?" Edit: This is in addition to your experiences with God, which I would love to hear you elaborate on, if you are willing. It was just in a empty wheat field. Me and God. He didn't really open his mouth, I just new what he was saying.
How do you plan on paying all that in your lifetime!? Idk Med bankruptcy like someone mentioned maybe.
What kept you going in this bleak situation? Honestly, once I new I would probably live I felt I needed to do something important with my life. If I can help one person I'll be happy.
Did at any point during the coma, you realize that you were in a coma or realize it was some sort of dream? Or did it seem as real as what's happening right now? It seemed as real as life. Even when the next nightmare started I thought it was real.
700 pages?!? hot damn! good on you then, that's extremely impressive and sounds very detailed, yet personal. I can tell you that in the event that you would ever publish it, I'd read it all. It sounds like quite the story. Thanks, took quite a while and was hard to write.
As somebody who's written a 110 page book but not published, I can only imagine the time it took you to write a 700 page book. Congratulations on writing it, you have my respect. And u have mine, ty.
I see that you're religious (as am I), but I saw a comment in which you said, "Yes I'm religious now". Was your vision of God what made you become religious, or had you always been? I have always been but now I act like a christian not just say I am.
Do you ever think your in the coma still? Like do you ever feel like your everyday life is still just a dream? Sometimes honestly.
So if someone were to pinch you will in a coma, how would you react in the coma? would that reaction happen right away? and how many times? Lol idk no-one pinched me.
This is something I've wondered all my life... What is it like to die? Hope I'm not being insensitive here. Well for me it was like drowning because my lungs were shutting down, so it was awful.
Did the news do any stories on you? Going into a coma from swine flu and waking up would have made a good story for them. Nope, the Nashville Preds team came and saw me thats about it.
Do you fear death anymore? Not the dying part. Dying slowly or in a coma again. Yes very much.
Do you know how you got the swine flu? Thanks for the AMA! Little brother got it from school mildly. He was bragging how he was sicker..then a week later np.
Would you say the nightmares made you a bit desensitized? I don't think so. I still have minor ones compared to those and they suck.
Are you Beric Dondarrion? Nah, I'm in more seasons hehe.
Did you see anything when you died. ie; having an out of body experience, or was it just "black"? Well when I died is when the nightmares started to my knowledge because I was in coma from that point on.
1.5mil bill. After insurence.
Even a a single major procedure can cripple you financially over here. Medical bills are among the top reasons people go bankrupt. Yep.
My cousin got swine flu at the age of 31. He went into a coma that lasted 6 months, but he never woke up. I miss him every day. I'm glad you did wake up from that coma and I'm glad you're living a good clean life now. Don't take it for granted. I'm extremely sorry, and thank you very much. People laughed at the swine flu, but it took many lives.
Were the meds actually helping with the pain or were you taking them to relax and kinda forget about what happened and/or yhe emotions Both. My pain right now is on the verge of being unbearable, but I'm hanging in there. I take a lot of over the counter stuff.
Be careful, don't want to damage your livekidneys :( I'm careful and take as it says ty tho that would be bad lol.
Even soothing music had a bad effect. It's hard to say what would be good. My dad told me it would be okay and I heard him once though. The washing hair things they heat in microwave even made me catch fire in coma lol.
I'm sorry but I just burst out laughing at this. It's sad, but I have a morbid sense of humor. Imagining you in this "realm" that you think is real and out of nowhere you catch fire.. I can imagine that shit getting old real fast! Lol, it did trust me.
Wow, amazing to think that I am reading this from my parent's couch on my laptop in my sheltered life, yet to graduate high school. I feel bad for the shit you put up with. We live in a imperfect and unfair world. I just got the short stick. don't feel bad for not having it as bad as me. Enjoy life, and do the best you can!
I had a girlfriend who treated me like dirt 2 years after coma. Said I was too fat to be seen with in public...9 months of my life spent with that Terrible woman. So Dakota fanning for her I guess...ugh lol.
Wake up, Neo. Haha, I did, finally.
Maybe he chooses for it to look like that so he seems wise Heh.
Pepper grey hair can look good too man! Lol.
Whoa, I had swine flu and the worst I got was a crazy sore back, flu symptoms and a real bad cough. I was in hospital for a week. I consider myself fairly lucky. Lol :)
Need to get equine and avian flu. Gotta catch 'em all! Glad u were okay.
I was somewhere in between, spent a week in bed delirious, coughing up nasty crap from my lungs, and wishing i was dead. You can catch the others, this version of pokemon is really stupid. Agreed. I'm sorry u went through that.
Do you think you'll ever relapse (pain meds) No never, I don't want them. When you are addicted it's all you can think about. Even thought I never broke the law I would run out of my scripts and withdrawal terribly.
You really should get in touch with Ellen. I think your thread has some really good stories, and lessons to learn, and it'd be a way to wipe off your debt. In fact, with your permission I'd like to help you start an AMA for you to appear on Ellen via Twitter. You're welcome to, but I don't know the chances.
And ty I had no idea people would care so much.
