Preston P Probable NDE
First Doctors visit for upper respiratory infection I was given an injection of penicillin and told to come back in three days for booster of same. Second visit I had no visible signs of any reaction to the drug and the nurse injected me in the buttocks with a much larger dose than the first and I immediately turned to say "I can taste that in my mouth" she new me well and told me to quit fooling around and pull my pants up. About the time I got my pants up I herd a noise, sounded as if coming from the hall a oscillating up and down and increasing in strength, I turned and asked if she could here that?
Her reply "what are you
talking about? then a push to my chest, felt like someone hit me and the nurse
knew I was in trouble and helped me to the exam table and I laid on my back,
feet were crossed and I remember asking her to uncross my feet. Quickly I
imagined I had been given a shot of Polio by accident and I was paralyzed and so
afraid, couldn't grasp what was happening to me and she left to find the doctor,
I felt a wave of numbness starting at my toes and finger tips and like neutrally
warming water worked straight to my center and I became very accepting of it all
and started thinking I no longer will have to eat, sleep, exercise, great peace
of mind and then I felt as if me (spirit me) was outside my body and feeling the
walls of the room as skin, no more sensation of my body skin and form, I was
very OK with where I was. Next the doctor and nurse return, they fill two
separate syringes, pull my pants down and he injects first a load of adrenalin
that instantly raised me off the table and she immediately hit the other hip
with an arresting agent and I was back. That's what happened and I look so
forward to the day I have my next Birthday
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? Yes penicillin injection caused anaphylactic shock.
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? No very easy to communicate because it made such an impression in my mind to a point that for a year or more I would go into the same state of shock when certain sounds, harmonics, jet passing overhead would vibrate between buildings in San Francisco and my brain and ears would pick up before I did and I would start getting numb and light headed, have to sit down wait for vibrating sound to go away.
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? Yes
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? I remember everything but I don't know if I lost consciousness and the doctor and I had future discussions because of the psychosomatic, involuntary numbness episodes for the year after. He and the nurse have long been gone so I can't discuss. I'm 67 he and the nurse were probably 70 when the event took place.
Was the experience dream like in any way? Yes, once the numbness consumed my entire body very fast dreamlike thoughts and feeling.
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes The presence of feeling the walls of the room and my desire to continue beyond the walls, out of my skin, the walls became my skin.
What emotions did you feel during the experience? see the detailed explanation above, once the calm set in I did not want to come beck in to my body.
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? Yes, and I have herd it referred to as tinnitus, a loud up and down volume like holding a long sheet of thin steel at each end and shaking it to make noise.
LOCATION DESCRIPTION: Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? No
Did you see a light? No
Did you meet or see any other beings? No
Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? Uncertain
I was very in touch with my being out of my body (skin) and free to go with my thoughts and the walls were the only obstacle and I was ready to go beyond and was aware of the feelings and thoughts and not at the table where my body was laying. Everything was present, I wasn't looking back or around I was seeing all at once.
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? No
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes Super sensitive, all the congestion that had brought me to the doctor gone,
