About The Author


Amelie Roth was born in Germany in 1972. After living
there until the age of 25, she was accidentally thrown into
a career in tourism, where she has been making her way
up until today. She has been living in Florida for the past
ten years with her husband and two children. In 2021, a
very rare illness hit her, and she ended up in an induced
coma for 16 days. In this book, she relates her experience
while “being under,” fighting the infection.

Staking the Claim

Being asleep for 2 weeks straight? What a blast! But coma is nothing like that, besides the general belief even among many
medical professionals. During an induced coma many patients experience anything from beauty to terror to the worst nightmares. It was no different for Amelie when she was admitted to hospital due to a what seemed simple bacterial infection and ended up in a 16-day induced coma which nearly ended her life. In this book she relates her experience and how the brain likes to play tricks on us.

I got today this amazing book: inmersice alarming experience. Perfectly crafted. Moving, soul-shaking... well... a needed reading to remind us lots of things we give for granted as Life itself.
Two time line narratives gives the reader some refreshing moments to catch some air and then dive deep into Susanne's Experience in her own words. She takes us through her journey of sudden despair, thrilling, amazing, at times suffocating moments as we dive deep into her first days in a hospital as her mysterious symptoms worsen.
But once you start this path you can just stop not until you walk out that hospital holding her hand 'cause damn! she does makes us live every moment in a mastered narrative.
A mixture of wake-up call and strong proof of what a strong soul can achieve, this Book is a must read for our daily exhausted minds. A wake-up call to remember to take care of our bodies, "our temples" and treasure everu second beacuse life is as someone once said: To live is to expect the unexpected... When you close this book you will keep a part of it with you wherever you go. Thanks Susanne for sharing your experience and be a Strong Woman.
