Experience Description

I had swollen lungs, so I couldn't lie on my back. I didn't have any asthma medication. I went to bed, had trouble breathing, couldn't breathe fully. Then I fell asleep and experienced that I saw myself lying there. I saw someone who pressed down on my lungs, as a kind of CPR.

My head was being held up sideways and I felt an arm around my neck on the side I was lying on. I felt rough pressures down my back and saw two hands pressing on my back at the same time. I remember a person who passed away a long time ago, who had thin brown hands and a light blue shirt - that's what I saw. I woke up from it and couldn't breathe properly.
