Man Spent 12 Years In A Coma, ‘I Heard Everything’ Including His Mother Saying ‘I hope you die.’

#1 Childhood in the 1980’s

Martin Pistorius, a normal child with an interest in electronics, grew up in South Africa, but at the age of 12 a mysterious illness began to take hold of him. His symptoms started small: First he developed a sore throat, then he began sleeping most of the time, and eventually he lost his ability to move entirely.
