Suzanne F's NDE
I HAD A FRIEND DRIVE ME BACK TO THE HOSPITAL. I TOLD THE ATTENDANT AT THE DESK TO ADMIT ME, BUT SHE WOULD NOT. I THEN SAT IN A CHAIR IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND PUT MY HEAD ON THE SHOULDER OF A STRANGER SITTING NEXT TO ME. I WANTED TO DIE DUE TO THE PAIN. WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS IN A BED IN THE HOSPITAL.
BEFORE I DID AWAKE, ALL I CAN REMEMBER IS I WAS IN A WIDE TUNNEL. THE LIGHT WAS VERY BRIGHT. I WAS CALLING OUT FOR MY MOTHER. I COULD ONLY WHISPER FOR HER. THEN A VOICE VERY SOOTHING AND COMFORTING! VOICE, SAID, DON'T TALK, SAVE YOUR ENERGY. I WAS AWAKE AND SCARED. I THEN CALLED FOR MY MOTHER AGAIN. I REMEMBER IT WAS HARD FOR ME TO TALK.
THE VOICE GOT SOMEWHAT LOUDER, AND SAID THE SAME THING TO ME, DON'T TALK, SAVE YOUR ENERGY. I NOTICED AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, A TINY FIGURE, AGAIN I TRIED TO CALL FOR MY MOTHER, I HEARD THE VOICE AGAIN, IT WENT ON FOR A LONG TIME. AS I SPOKE THE FIGURE BECAME BIGGER AND BIGGER.
WHEN I AWOKE, MY MOTHER WAS STANDING AT THE FOOT OF MY BED. I STILL WONDER TO THIS DAY IF IT WAS HER VOICE, BUT THE VOICE WAS A MAN'S. THERE WAS NO DOCTOR IN THE ROOM AT THE TIME I WOKE. I KEPT IT TO MYSELF FOR YEARS, BECAUSE I DIDN'T' WANT ANYONE TO THINK ME CRAZY. CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THIS.
