The politician and television talk show host, Cristina Cifuentes, has confessed about one of the most distressing experiences of her life in ‘El Elegido’, the new podcast by Maestro Joao
Maestro Joao has made a strong start to his solo adventure in the field of the podcast. Already an expert in this type of program, the television collaborator has started his career in ‘El Elegido’ with an exceptional godmother, Cristina Cifuentes. The astrologer has become the best political interlocutor, has dived into the most painful and traumatic experience of his life: the motorcycle accident that almost cost him his life eight years ago. Master Joao I was very interested to know what he lived during the two weeks he was in an induced coma. Until now, the Telecinco talk show host had not stopped in this way in that very hard experience that changed her life. That felt? What did she dream? What dear people did she see? Although he claims not to remember any of his dreams, what he experienced during that lethargy is as fresh as if it had happened yesterday. Without a doubt, being able to approach all that with Maestro Joao has been liberating.
The testimony of Cristina Cifuentes about the terrible accident he survived eight years ago is overwhelming. As he points out, You’ve seen “death up close,” an experience that has changed all of your values and priorities. And that unbearable pain, which not even palliative measures could erase. “More than the experience of the coma, which was a very hard experience, it was not good, I had a terrible time in the hospital, being there for so long is like being in hell,” she reflects. “I wake up very bad, with terrible pain that even morphine did not calm him down, but much worse is the fear. You can’t talk with a tracheotomy, you don’t know how you’re going to look, you hear things, but they treat you as if you weren’t there,” she recalls excitedly.
The former president of the Community of Madrid spent a whole month in the ICU struggling between life and death, which was followed by an endless and costly recovery process. Two of those hospitalized weeks were spent in an induced coma, “my lungs did not work and my heart barely worked, the slightest bill was 18 rib fractures, I had a crushed vertebra, a broken clavicle,” continues his shocking story .
Master Joao has made Cifuentes stop at what he experienced in those days when he was asleep. “Did you feel something?” The driver of ‘El Elegido’ urged him. “I had a dream. I call it ‘The Dream’, because I don’t usually remember dreams, and it was something very real. In that dream I had an accident,” he tells the microphone. “I return to my place of work in the Government Delegation, where I worked and lived, I gather all my team, in a very large room, and I explain to them that I am going to be away for a while and I leave the tasks a little organized, look how insane”, he continues, being aware of the nonsense he is relating. “From then on, the dream takes place in a hospital. It is a very strange hospital because those who treated me were Japanese and it was very distressing, because they wanted to know where I was, I looked at the posters… And everything was a kind of struggle to know where I was, to know what was happening to me, to get out of there”he affirms, reliving the anguish of that situation.
Cristina Cifuentes wanted to point out that people who have been in a coma “have a similar experience at times”. For what she has stressed that it is important “you have to talk, caress people who are in a coma, because you have those sensations, smells, touches and that helps”. It is necessary to point out that the induced coma shows very specific conditions in this aspect. The policy saw “known people, relatives, the doctor”, when the dream was mixed with reality, “through the windows that open when they lower your medication. I found out many things”, she has concluded.
