Girl Messages Her Best Friend On Instagram Every Day While She’s In A Coma

Girl Messages Her Best Friend On Instagram Every Day While She’s In A Coma

There's amazing friends, and then there's this.

When 26-year-old Madison Williamson, from Altrincham, was involved in a car accident last year, she was rushed to hospital where she remained in a coma for over a month.

With devastated family and friends unaware of whether she would make a full recovery, Maddy's best friend, 25-year-old Natasha Morris, decided to message her every single day on Instagram.

In a series of touching messages, Tasha updated Maddy on her recovery and what was going on at home. You can see a video montage of the texts below:

Despite wearing a seatbelt, student nurse Maddy suffered a broken back, jaw, ribs and hand, as well as deafness in one ear. She has also been treated for PTSD and needed multiple major stomach operations. While in hospital, she later contracted coronavirus and was diagnosed with sepsis twice.

"After the accident, I was airlifted to hospital where my family were called to say their last goodbyes," Maddy explained.

"My injuries included a broken back, jaw, ribs and hand and a small bleed on the brain. I had to have multiple major stomach operations leaving bad scarring and I also have a scar on my face and major scarring to both hands.

"I have a lifelong friend in Tasha, I couldn't have asked for a better best friend, she has done more than I ever could have even imagined a friend would. She's amazing."

Speaking about the moment she found out her best friend was in hospital, Tasha - also a student nurse - added: "When I first found out Maddy was in a car accident I was in complete shock and couldn't believe it.

"I still didn't believe it until I saw her in the hospital and it felt like I had walked into a nightmare. It was hard because she would usually be the person I would ring to talk to if something happened and I couldn't.

"When I was in the hospital I tried my best to keep it together in front of her family but I sat in my car for nearly an hour before I was able to drive home."

"I was in B&M when I got the call to say she had woken up and I just burst into tears and left without anything I needed, I was so happy.

"I'll never forget when I got to the hospital after she woke up and we both just cried when we saw each other, I'm so proud of her."

Now, Maddy is urging others to always drive safely, crediting her seat belt with saving her life.

"I've cared for so many patients who have been in car accidents and while I had so much empathy for them, I never thought it would be me," she explained.

"Please always wear a seatbelt and drive safely. My seatbelt saved my life.

"It's been a year since my accident and I'm still struggling both physically and mentally. I'm in constant pain and have some life long injuries unfortunately.

"However, I am much better than I was and have amazing support from family and friends."
