I cant imagine going through anything like this, not even being able to kill yourself.

Not even being able to kill yourself - that is the most disturbing part of this kind of torture. I mean, the Jews and Christians in Nazi Germany had it horribly bad, the people of Sudan are suffering terrible torture, etc. But at least those people could end it all if they chose to. This guy was stuck in a torturous hell for 23 years and had absolutely no way of escaping. I don't understand how he is still clinically sane honestly.

they had a "Locked-in" patient in House last season, it was a pretty good episode.

But 23 years, wow...that's more that i have lived.

JUST before! That story was f*cked up, as is this story.

I don't think he necessarily did anything horrible prior to the accident. It's just the random, horrifying nature of the world at work.

I don't buy it. I watched a youtube video of him "typing" and literally his sister (mom?) was moving his hand to press the keys. I saw no evidence whatsoever that he was choosing which keys to press. I suspect this is a case of wishful thinking.

I think you're right. I just watched the youtube video too. I never knew from the story that she was typing for him. That's called facilitated communication, and it's never been proven to be a real thing.

I've noticed there have been quite a few BS stories in the news lately, it's starting to piss me off.
