Just try to imagine what happens when we die. Just the thought of it can become very frightening. That is the exact reason why we want to hear fairytales that make us think about the magic and beauty we have here on earth.
When someone is suffering for a long time, it's very hard for them, but it's also a horrible time for the family members too. Sometimes it's easy to lose hope and think it's better to let go than to cling to that pain.
One-of-a-kind story is Martin Pistorius from South Africa who was 12 years old when it happened. He suddenly fell ill and was diagnosed with a degenerative illness, leaving him in a vegetative state. For 12 hard and long years, Pistorius was trapped inside his own body.
He thinks he woke up around when he was 14-15 years old, a couple of years later when it happened, but everyone around him thought he was unconscious of the perception around him. His mother once said that she wished he was dead, and he heard all that, but he knew she was heartbroken seeing her son lay there in a vegetative state, silently suffering on the inside.
In the following powerful NBC interview, we learn what life was like for Pistorius, trapped with his thoughts for over a decade.
