    A paragraph from my short story

    This is the paragraph from a short story I am currently writing. In the part before this, my narrator had been given some kind of sleeping drug by a group of soldiers who stopped him in the woods. Now he wakes up in a cell.
    Would you please correct my mistakes. I feel that probably some sentences do not sound natural.

    I came to in a narrow room with the concrete floor. A thin mattress with a blanket and a pillow lay in one corner and, in another, a washbasin and a toilet made from stainless steel. A single fluorescent tube in the high ceiling cast a pale light. The room had no windows, just a square vent through which a weak flow of air came inside. The silence was eerie, as if I was sealed in a tomb. I had only my briefs and t-shirt on. They had taken everything from me, included my watch. I still refused to believe this was reality. This must have been an awful nightmare from which I was going to wake up any moment and return to normal life again.
