Hey guys, can I ask you a simple question – have you ever thought about what happens after we die? Well, that can be really frightening, which is the main reason why we love stories that make us really think about how we want to spend our time here on Earth. But, unfortunately, when a person is suffering for such a long time, it can be easy for people close to them to lose hope and even question if they’d be better off letting go.
Well, that’s exactly what happened, when a 12-year-old boy from South Africa, Martin Pistorius, suddenly fell ill and was diagnosed with a degenerative illness, leaving him in a vegetative state. And, unfortunately, for 12 long years, Pistorius was trapped inside his own body.
Martin Pistorius thinks that he actually woke up around 14 or 15 years old, but everyone around him thought he was completely unconscious to the world around him. He also said that he heard his mother saying that she wished he was dead, but knew she was heartbroken seeing her son lay there.
Just take a look at this amazing NBC interview. You will learn more about him and what he has to say about the time when he was trapped in his own thoughts, for over a decade. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share. Thank You.
