I remember that day I reached the Light as if it were today. It is so clear in my memory as if it happened this very morning.
I recollect hearing my mother and my aunt crying, and Pepe, the training doctor saying that if I did not improve that there was nothing else they could do. And suddenly, do you know what happened? It was frightening. I saw the ceiling of the room falling on top of me and I remember putting my hands before me in order to avoid impact but I suddenly realized that it was not the roof falling on me, but that I was leaving my body. I saw myself lying on the bed, with my eyes closed and my mother and my aunt crying saying that I could not be dead. Pepe said that he was sorry, but that there was nothing else he could do for me and I remember I was saying: 'Mother, aunt, do not cry, I am well, can't you see it? I am well, please look at me, I am here, I am fine, don't cry, don't cry I am well, but please listen to me, don't you hear me?'
Realizing that none of them heard me, I saw a beautiful white light similar to a beautiful sunshine, but that light did not glare. On the contrary, I perceived a peace I cannot express with words. I will not be able to define the sensation in feeling like this. You feel nothing, no cold, no warm, no weight, no pain, no happiness no sadness, it cannot be explained, and this is something you have to live to know how it feels. I felt so good that I decided to walk in and find someone to tell my mother and my aunt to stop suffering - that I was very well, that they were not to cry for me as it hurt me to see them cry and that I did not want them to cry. I wanted them to see that I was very well.
When getting to the light I saw a man who radiated peace and tranquility, but when I was next to him, he stopped me and said, 'No, you cannot come in. Your time is not now yet. Get back you still have to fulfill your mission on earth.' I don't know how, but I went back. I remember I woke up in bed and Pepe said it was a miracle since it was more than one hour since the cardiac arrest. I don't know how I came back but I won't forget the sensation even if I live to a hundred years, I will never forget it.

Yes Allergic reaction Other Me pusieron antibioticos sin saber que era alérgica y entré en coma.I was given a Penicillin shot. They did not know I was allergic and I went into a coma. I was in the hospital for some time; I do not remember how long I was there since I do not remember anything about hospital. I know what I was told, but I had no idea that I was there and my mother seeing no improvement, and believing that I was to die, decided to take me home. She said that she did not want me to die in a hospital since they will perform an autopsy and that she would not be able to accept that.
I was taken home under her responsibility, this is what I have been told because I was in coma and I was not aware of anything. I was treated with shots, I don't know of what, and I was taken home to die in my house with my family.

Since this happened I have experienced strange things as premonitions, to see persons that were already dead but I did not know it in certain cases; in other cases I knew they were dead, this only happened with my grandmother, but I cannot be sure if it was real or was because of the love I felt for her.

My second life started when I was four. I had a tonsillectomy since I was very sick and I ate very little. They decided to have me operated on. At that time medicine was not advanced and techniques were not sophisticated. I remember I did not eat the whole day and I was very hungry when I went to be operated on. It was not at a hospital because at that time this operation was ambulatory with many people around me. I perfectly remember that my uncle went with me; I remember I was tied with a kind of sheet to the operation seat. Something was put in my mouth to keep it open and there was a cut. It hurt terribly. I will never forget that pain. I remember when going into the alley where my aunt was waiting that they told me not to shout, but I did shout and cried because it hurt so much. After all this crying and shouting, I suffered a hemorrhage that almost killed me. It took a long time to stop it and in order to avoid an infection they gave me some shots.
When arriving home they asked me if I wanted to eat and I only said I just wanted to die, I did not want to hear about food. It hurt so much that I did not want to eat. I remember they put me to bed and I have no other memories of that day.
I have been told some relatives came to visit me but I don't remember that. The following day the practicing doctor was called to give me the shot I was to receive, so he came and gave it to me.
Until that day, I had not had any antibiotics because I had not need them, so they had no idea that I was allergic to them. In fact, I was and when I received the shot it was combined with something else and I went into comma. I was in the hospital for some time, I don't know how long since I don't remember this.
