If you were still in the hospital in a coma, or in spirit somehow, then your post would be part of that, and we wouldn't be able to see it. Clearly we can. Sounds like some kind of dissociative anxiety. I imagine it's worse some times than others. Stress will bring it about, make it worse. Christmas is stress. Sugar is stress. People can be stressful. When you get weak and traumatized like that, it can take a while to get back to your old self.
