My skin turned red and I was having problems breathing. I tried to take a cold shower because I felt as if I was on fire. I believe the shower made it worse. I had to lay down. By the time they got me in the ambulance, I had to totally force in on breathing. The last thing I remember was telling the guys that I was having real bad chest pains. Felt like a ton of bricks weighing me down.When I saw the light, I felt the love and wanted to go into it. Wondering who was there with so much love for me as I started to go into the light. Out of the darkness, as if it was coming from me, a big brown-eyed baby girl came to me, face-to-face; eye-to-eye. Eyes open wide as if to say, 'Hey, what are you doing?' With that I replied, 'Okay, I'll fight!' She looked one or two years old.When I came to, I heard one of the ambulance drivers say, 'We're lucky we don't need it because it is broken.' The other replied, 'What, isn't charging?' 'Yes, but the handle is broke.'By the time, they got me to the hospital I was so cold that I was shaking all over when I asked for a blanket. I was told that I had a fever and couldn't have one.
