woke up at 4:00 am. I went into the bathroom. I started to feel queasy. I felt
faint. The next thing I remember was I was FLYING, super fast, head first down a
long, dark hallway. It was very dark. There was someone on my right holding my
arm taking me. I could tell that this person KNEW where we were going and it was
their mission to bring me. I was screaming no, no, no. I did not want to go. I
could see objects going by me on each side. I don't know what they were because
we were flying so fast. It felt like we were going down that dark hallway for a
long time. I remember just thinking no, where am I? where are we going? Then we
stopped in front of a door on the left. I don't know what color the door was,
all I knew was it was a door and I was not going through it! I kept saying NO!
The next thing I remember was my husband telling me I had a seizure. It took me
