Michael S's NDE
Well when I was 7 years old I had been rocking on a chair in the kitchen. I lost balance when I was rocking the chair and hit the back of my skull on the corner of the handle. My mom said she thought I was joking at first because she saw me shaking and stuck to the handle. She realized I had hit my head when she pulled me forward, when I fell on the ground and blood started hitting the sealing. I remember my mom driving and my grandma holding me in between her legs, with me bent over with a cloth over my head; as they where following a ambulance which they had called. Until this I remember the part where I was above the car which where driving a brown 2door convertible. Then I had just waken up while they where rapping the bandage over they stitch or staples. The funny thing is I remember the time I was above the brown 2door car convertible, but don't remember the time I was recovering from the injury.
The second time was when I was 9 years old I had a tonsil surgery and I had a allergic reaction to the anesthesia, called anectine. After waking up from the surgery, I felt paralyzed, I could not open my eyes or even speak, I was just laying their listening to the doctor say to me what had happened. I WAS SO SCARED I YELLED inside my head and moved as hard as I could I Had gone straight into air far away it felt but I couldn't see or hear anything; only it what all clusters of white and black in front of me. All of a sudden I had a felling as though I was shot straight back down even faster than I came up. I was over my body looking my own down from the corner of the room from the left side of the body. I was in the middle of a real big room with my father next to me sitting on the chair. I saw he had a un-rapped present in his hands which was a WILSON basket ball, that was what I wanted for a long time as a kid it was my first basketball. I remember waking up and asking the people around me the first thing, "wear is my basketball", and everyone was suppressed on how I knew about the ball. They ask the doctor he replied, that I had over heard everything. Than I had replied that Wear is the WILSON basketball than they where even more shocked when they learned that my father only had told me that had both me a new basketball and had never mentioned the brand.

I asked myself this question how come from the time of my experience, after almost 15 years now I am investigating my NDE. I said to myself because now is the best time and the only time.
