Experience Description

I was delirious with fever following a miscarriage. May have become unconscious. But when this happened, I was awake and was aware of what was happening around. I remember that my child was sleeping inside and my husband was in the kitchen. When this was happening he was near me and I could hear him say that I think she is very ill.

Suddenly I could no longer move or even lift a finger. As I was struggling to move, there was a sudden jerk and I was pushed out of my body and was floating upwards. I could see my husband near my body. I was hoping he would touch me or shake me so that I may be able to get back. But he merely looked at me. I wanted to tell him that I was not unconscious but dead. After reaching a level I stopped and stood still for some time. I wanted to call my husband and tell him about this. But could not do anything.

But then, I slowly came down in the same way and with a jerk entered the body. Suddenly I was able to move and jumped up. The only after effect is that I have developed claustrophobia.
