Taken from life. 21-year-old Weronika candidly talks about life after waking up from a coma. How has it changed
When we hear the word coma, we often do not fully understand the meaning of the word.
21-year-old Weronika spoke honestly in the program scraps, what she remembers and what her life looks like now. A tragic accident occurred in 2018 when, as a 17-year-old schoolgirl, she was hit by a bus.

The teenager was taken care of by the staff of the Alarm Clock clinic. Weronika revealed, with the support of her mother, that she has huge memory problems, she doesn't remember anything from before the accident, she associates scraps of information about her friends, but she doesn't remember everything that could be related to them. Budzik remembers only baths from his stay at the clinic, but this is one of the few memories that Weronika's husband managed to keep.
An interesting fact for many may be the fact that Weronika suffered damage to this part of the brain that is responsible for sadness, regret, longing or anger, therefore she cries only because of the physical pain that is in her case, greater due to more intense sensitization.
As the 21-year-old admitted, she sometimes cries while combing her hair. She reacts to everything with a smile and joy, because – as her mother put it – nature made sure that her daughter lost memories that could cause trauma, and caused her to stop feeling emotions commonly referred to as negative. Weronika admitted that she dreams of a prince charming on a white motorbike and hopes that one day she will be able to function as an ordinary, fit woman.
She reacts with joy to everything and of course is not fully aware your disability. […] This is how nature took care of it, because a 17-year-old girl who would wake up from a coma trapped in her body would probably not mentally cope with it – explains Weronika's mother.
