I remember the intense feeling I get when I lose consciousness ( pressure in the chest and head). Then it was black; after that I saw myself being lost in a kind of dark-brown cave; I was dressed in a white long-sleeve dress (very old-fashioned. There were about 5 doors or exits in this cave: 3 ahead of me and 2 behind me. A male voice was telling me to chose either one of the three doors in front of me, and that I should definitely not take one of the two other doors. After following his advice I started gaining consciousness; I also started to hear my mother talking to the paramedics.
feelings I had afterwards were astonishment and confusion; I didnt know whether
I was alive or dead.
