was out drinking with my ex-boyfriend and we were driving in his car after we
left the bar. An argument took place during a heated discussion. (3 years later
I still can't remember what we were arguing about)!
took place I found myself in a dark tunnel with a bright light gradually coming
toward me. I then saw my mother who passed away in the year 2000. She was in
front of the light. We were communicating through each others minds, not
verbally. We can understand one another I remember, but I don't have any memory
of what was said. I just remember me feeling a floating sensation, not being in
my physical body. I didn't like the look my mother had, it was a look of fear. I
got that same look when she was alive at times she had worry and disappointment
in her eyes. (she tilted her head down and kept her eyes staring straight
inline with mine.
woke up, I was never dead. I was in a coma for 3 weeks with a crushed skull,
brain injury, tracheotomy and a fractured 5th vertebra. The fracture was 1
centimeter from cutting into my spine that would have paralyzed me from the neck
down. Four months in the hospital, four surgeries and physical therapy. I went
to Illinois to stay with my father for a month.
doctors told my father that I would never be the same, they all said I would be
retarded. My dad then got guardianship over me and I recovered back 100%
mentally over a period of time. Physically you wouldn't see any flaws. I have a
dent the size of my hand on the left side of my head, only it is not noticeable.
I have a tracheotomy scar, scar in my stomach from the feeding tube and once
right handed...now left. A quarter size piece of the fine motor skills part of
my brain had to be removed. It effected my writing, eating with utensils and
typing. I had to train myself to do all of those things with my left hand.
told to the police by my ex at the scene of the accident that I was so mad I
jumped out of the moving car (Corvette) going 40mph. They couldn't find proof
after investigation that it was attempted suicide. His insurance wouldn't cover
my medical expenses and I was 3 weeks shy on my new job collecting any medical
benefits. It cost me to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy with just under 1 million
dollars that I owed.
moved back to Dallas, TX, got my job back and moved in with my ex...I started
piecing together that he was cheating on me, that the argument the night of the
accident was about that. I still don't know how I ended up where I did, but I
think he had something to do with it. A doctor interviewed my after the accident
and reported I wasn't suicidal. The seating in a Corvette sits so low, you have
to step up and then out of the car. I was heavily intoxicated at the time, so I
know there was foul play.
