Experience Description

Well, I was in jail for minor BS for three months, and the night I got released was my birthday. I went out drinking; being Vegas everything is open twenty-four hours. The next thing I remember was that I was on an airplane, or something similar, and there were two people with a man, a woman and me. The man didn't say much, but the woman talked with me, I forget about what. Then I remember being in a doctor's office, my hand was paralyzed, and he injected me with something, and immediately it was back to normal! I know this sounds bad but I had sexual relations with one of the 'flight attendants'. Then I remember the girl who was with the guy came up to me and said I couldn't go with them yet, but she will see me in the future. I didn't know I was in a coma, which lasted two or three weeks. My question is how I knew my hand was paralyzed BEFORE I woke up from the coma! Impossible. I now suffer immense pain in my leg because my ankle is paralyzed, and the rest of the muscles are compensating for the paralyzed part. Anyhow I KNOW there is an afterlife, I caught a glimpse of it, remember it everyone DIES so this can't be all there is. My experience was so real it took my dad three months to convince me otherwise!
