A Near Death Experience, No. 177.

Gran Mal Seizure.

I'm not sure where to begin this, or how to tell it, so forgive me if I ramble a bit.

In January of 1999, I had what the docs are now calling a gran mal seizure, except this one was so severe that I stopped breathing. I had never had a seizure before, and I wasn't on any medication. In fact, I had never spent a night in the hospital in my life, and I was 36 years old at the time.

My wife eventually found me sitting there, with my eyes wide open, and my pupils dilated, but I wasn't breathing. She later told the Docs that my lips and fingers were blue from the lack of oxygen. Fortunately her mother has been an RN for 35 years, and made sure her children knew first aid, to include CPR. However all that is background information to the incident, this board is about NDE's.

During the period that I wasn't breathing, and was essentially dead, I can remember trying to walk around my house, but it was as if my feet were not really touching the floor. I also remember trying to talk to my wife who was just in the next room, but I couldn't make a sound. I did watch as my wife finally rushed past me, and found my physical body, and began CPR, it was shortly after that, that I was yanked back into my body.

However, the one thing that has really stuck with me about that experience was the feeling. It felt like I was completely enveloped by a feeling of peace, love, and contentment. A feeling I can only describe as heaven. In fact, that feeling was so good, and so intense, that I almost resented being revived. I didn't want that feeling to end. It would be interesting to know if anyone else who has had an NDE has experienced this feeling.


(Yes, almost everyone who has a NDE, experiences that feeling.)
