Dear fellow coma victims, I think I’ve discovered something about recovery from coma because of Covid and social distancing. The new pathways in the brain require regular stimulation otherwise they returns to empty space, it again becomes a virgin pathway. The new pathway is not permanent, if not used regularly you must teach again.

My walking severely deteriorated from inactivity during CoronaVirus. Previously I was able to leave my walking stick at home but not anymore. I’m traversing paths I once walked with confidence without my stick but need to use it again and frequently must stop and hold walls and rails like I did before.

I’m no doctor but believe the new pathways in the brain require use to become known and can quickly be forgotten because of inactivity.
