I had a weird dream last night. I woke up from a coma, at home (a really nice version of it in my dream, lol), to find that my mother and siblings are there taking care of me, all the while I was in a coma. I didn't think I was out that long, but they told me I was comatose for two years. Lol. I also remember flashes of being in the hospital and the iv tube. The dream got me so confused as I have never dreamt of being comatose, but below are excerpts from websites that I found online, and I love, love, love the third paragraph.

or improve your physical or mental heath. You need to get back to the

control of your own body or that you are afraid of losing control of
If you are in a coma it could suggest that events or hurts in your
life have caused you to withdraw or be largely incapable of interacting
with other people and events. It can also portray a situation in which
you have become unconscious or unaware of what is going on around you
and have turned inwards.
But in most cases this is probably depicting a part of you hurt at
some time and it closed down. For instance if you have been deeply hurt
emotionally in a relationship, you may still go on being capable of
relating at a certain level, but the part of you that enters deeply into
sexual and emotional relationships may have closed down, as in a coma.
Dreaming about this usually means you have become more aware of the
situation and there is an opportunity to heal and awaken that facet of
A person can wake up out of a coma and say that they are totally well
rested, not even knowing that they spent the last 20 years asleep and
out of their minds.
