Difficulty Being Back in My Body

I was very depressed and barely ate anything for months. I thought that a bottle of sleeping pills would be sufficient to kill me. I took the pills at a supermarket one block from my house. Within minutes I felt disoriented and wondered if I would make it home.

Watching Myself Struggle

I was on a rafting trip with friends when we came upon heavy rapids. We tried to avoid them, but were sucked into the whirlpool. My raft capsized and I was sucked under the water for about 20 seconds, the first time. I popped out and was then pulled down again for about 30 seconds. I started to panic, fearing death by drowning. I popped out again and was thrown against a rock only to be pulled down again.

With an engineering background, it was clear to me that there would be four bodies in the end.

Sense of Peace

I was driving home one night in March 2000. The last thing I remember is waving goodbye to a friend, as I was driving away. Then I was in total darkness. No fear, no pain...just nothingness. It felt embracing and calm. I have never felt such a sense of peace almost euphoria. I could feel myself sinking deeper and deeper into the blackness. I was more than happy to go with it. I was aware of the intensity of the feeling and was allowing myself to sink, deeper and deeper until I realised what was happening.
