Four Day Coma.When I was about 13, I overdosed on pills. I don't remember taking them. I remember puking, cleaning it up, then going to bed.
When my sister went to get me up the next morning I was practically dead. The doctors said they were surprised I wasn't brain damaged because my heart had stopped and no oxygen was going to my brain. I was dead. I was in a coma for 4 days.
I remember all of it. I could see myself like I was looking down from the ceiling. It was really bright all around me. I never saw a light and went toward it or anything like that, but there was something just bright about most things. I could look through the whole hospital.
When I woke up and was in a wheelchair going down the hall one day, the lady in the next room was leaving. I had seen her in my coma. I knew her name. So I know I wasn't dreaming. I had seen a lot of stuff. Stuff that hadn't happened yet, but came true. I never really told anyone about that stuff because I don't want people to think I'm crazy.
I wonder if anyone else has had a similar thing happen to them? After I began to walk again and had energy, I was like a whole new person. I'm really happy to be alive. I can't really explain it. The first month nothing could make me sad.
Now I'm not as outgoing as then but I'm still changed. Now I also have a great fear of death. Is this normal?
