  3. That has to be, along with being buried alive, one of the most terrifying experiences in the world. Imagine being able to know precisely what is going on but not able to communicate in any way, shape or form? That's almost got to be somebody's worst nightmare, it really has.

    Thats the thing. How would you stay sane?
     
  5. It reminds me of a murder drama I watched once. Someone was deliberately given peanuts, and he had a nut allergy. He was thought dead for two days as he was frozen rigid and his body shut down and left in a morgue. He was about to have a postmortem when they realised he was still alive due to the way he bled when they cut him but just totally unable to communicate. He was aware of what was happening all that time.

    Conveniently, he died as soon as they discovered he was alive...

    Sure there was a CSI episode similar (or is that what you're talking about?).

    No, this was on the BBC. Definitely not CSI. Maybe it was Messiah 3, or something like that?

    There was also a House M.D episode with a similar theme, with Doctors declaring him brain dead and pushing his wife to sign consent to give his organs away with your man lying on the bed listening screaming away inside!

    "Locked In Syndrome" is what it is called I believe.

    Scary ****!

    Quality episode. Best show on T.V. at the moment too actually.

    Its gone a little downhill after season 5, although the mental hospital stuff was well done.
