Experience Description

I woke up in a hospital bed with a doctor sitting next to me holding my hand. Somehow, I had already known that I was in a bad wreck and what was wrong with me. I had fallen asleep during the ride!! As my friend as well that was the cause of the wreck she fell asleep behind the wheel.

Before I came to those several days later, it was almost as if the wreck would keep re-playing in my mind. I could see myself sitting in the truck, but from above. And very close as if I was sitting right on top of the roof with the top pealed back. It was as if that one little area where I was had been covered with a bright white light that was clouds or fog around me, but I could still see myself clearly. I saw myself lean over and look out of the window with a smile I didn't feel it, but we went over a meridian. I then saw myself turn to my friend who was driving once again with a smile that I just can't describe asking her with a giggle why are you going over the meridian. From there it was as if the white light took over and I could no longer see. Then everything was gone, went black.

One major thing that happened to me was when I woke up I couldn't see very well, I was seeing everything 3D due to major crushed bones and broken bones in my face. Yet somehow, you would think that if someone woke up not being able to see to that nature it would really freak them out. As I said, it was almost as if I had already known.

Months later, I received all of the police reports and hospital records. I still at that point was unaware fully of what happened to me. All I know was I had to be airlifted to the closest hospital or I would have died. Once I got the police report of what happened I got chills through my body as I read and saw photos of the same meridian from my dream. I call it a dream :-), for I really don't know what it was.
