I was admitted under Dr Anil Bhoraskar in a critical condition. My blood sugar level was low, I was dehydrated and did not know where I was or what day it was. I later learned that mine was a case of hyperosmolar non-ketotic coma. I was given urgent treatment at the SL Raheja Fortis Hospital in Mumbai. The doctors brought me out of coma and I recovered completely and was discharged after eight days.
