Experience Description

I had a terrible vehicle accident. My boyfriend’s brothers found me. They called EMS. I went to the hospital. The emergency room doctor tried something that did not work out quite well. My physical body stopped functioning momentarily. Then I returned. Do not recall the physical extent of injury until the next day. After a few days was able to recall what occurred out of my present body.
