PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE
It’s a condition in Neurology where a patient cannot recover any higher function due to insult to his brain. Adam and Victor (Neurology textbook) define vegetative state if lasting for 3 months after non-traumatic and 12 months after traumatic injury, it’s termed as a Persistent vegetative state. The patient may have arousal or wakefulness in alternating cycles as reflected in partial eye-opening but patient regains neither awareness nor purposeful behaviour.
Many a time some of us get into a mental vegetative state where we tend to remain meaningless and exist for sake of living. Many of us are unsatisfied with their family, job, relationships. Many of us are just surviving instead of living our lives. I have heard many saying it’s better to die. This is due to living a life without a meaning, running without a destination. Till we get a meaning to our life, a destiny we will remain mentally vegetative alone.
Word of God says in Psalm 71:20 “You who have shown me many troubles and distresses Will revive me again, And will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.” God brought back physically dead people alive, God gave life to the dead bones in the valley. Same God can revive back us no matter what our state us. He can give a new life and new start from all your vegetative state. Trust him, he will do it for you. God bless you.
