Cheryl O NDE


When I had my first experience I was with a close friend of mine and her boyfriend. We had been hanging out for several hours and I was getting ready to leave to meet my mother at her work for a ride home. I was standing on her back porch waiting for them to walk with me while she was in the bathroom. Her boyfriend was upstairs telling his mom we were leaving. I remember all of a sudden everything went white and I started to feel like I was spinning. I fell but didn't feel it, everything was numb. When I hit I could hear my friend's boyfriend screaming for help and the next thing I saw was the back of his head leaning over me trying to get me to wake up. My friend ran out of the bathroom still yanking her pants up to make sure everything was okay. I woke up after 2 or 3 minutes and my friend brought me inside where I passed out 4 or 5 more times (without an experience).

The 2nd time I did was at another girlfriend's house. It was me and 2 of my friends, Anna & Danielle. We were at the home where Anna would babysit with her employer. We were all upstairs of the house talking and hanging out. When we started to walk down the stairs I began to feel strange. I didn't know where or who I was. I laid down on the floor and told the girls to go on without me because I needed a nap. They thought I was joking and started laughing and telling me to get up. My 2 friends pulled me up and realized it was serious when they opened the door to walk outside. When I felt the air hit me I dropped. I was told my skin turned gray, my lips purple, and my eyes looked black. I could see my friend's employer giving me CPR and praying over me. Anna was pacing in the living room and Danielle was on her knees upstairs rocking back and forth and praying. They did not believe my experience until I told them what I saw. That was the first and only time I could move around room to room during an experience. The ambulance was called as well as the local police but I refused to go to the hospital because I was afraid to get into trouble.
