We need to interact with the world around us in order to feel like we exist, so when a person cannot physically express themselves, life becomes lonely at best. It can sometimes be very difficult to determine how a person who cannot communicate sees the world. The helplessness of such a state is enough to keep most people up at night. Metallica has a song, "One", about this and its lyrics describe this story perfectly.

The man in this video knows all about helplessness and loneliness. He was in a coma for 12 years but, unlike most people in a coma, he was actually totally conscious and aware of his surroundings for a decade. The things people did and said around him gave me chills.
