It features in plenty of stories on the big and small screen; a character falls into a coma for years. When they wake up, everything has changed.

So Reddit user Lumj asked: 

"If you woke up in a hospital bed one day and a doctor told you that you had been in a coma for 20 years, what is the first question you would ask?"

How do I look?

I'd ask for a mirror.  [deleted]

Dependable Dad

Honestly I'd probably ask where my dad was. If I was alive on life support for 20 years, I assume he would have been paying the bills. He'd be an old man by then. I've no idea if my girlfriend would still be there. She loves me, but she also wants to be a mother more than anything, and she'd probably stop waiting after 5-10 years, which I would not blame her for. But I know my dad would keep me alive until the day he dies, no matter the cost. 
Goddamn I love my dad.  [deleted]
