Experience Description

I had taken over four hundred different pills and then laid down. That was on Thursday at lunch time. I was alone and planned it so no one would find me. But I was found unconscious on Friday afternoon. On the way to the hospital, I died three times. At one point I was aware that I felt like I was dreaming, and I turned around I was in a large hospital cubicle. I saw that there was someone laying on the trolley and I looked and it was me. I was naked and the curtains was open. I felt very cold. I tried to pull the cover over myself. I was rather annoyed that I couldn't make the nurses aware that I was cold, very cold and naked. I wandered around the nurses’ station, and then I shouted but never actually opened my mouth. Will please someone cover me up?! Please. My mum came round the corner with my husband and she immediately covered me up. She too was furious and I knew she felt my anger. Then it all went black!

Later on when I died again, it was like a dream. I saw my stepfather, who I considered my real Dad; he gave me a rush of love and told me that this wasn't my time. I had to go back. I was reluctant. I didn't want any more pain. I didn't have the strength any more. He surrounded me with more love and told me I would find strength and help. I just had to ask. I had to go back. I remember crying and then I woke up aware that I was in a hospital in intensive care rigged up to all manner of machines. A nurse removed a pipe from down my throat and then I felt my dad kiss me on my cheek. Later on my mum confirmed I was left naked and she did go mad at the doctors.
