    Yes, this.
    a car accident, they took my gall bladder & spleen out & if they hadn't have been able to sew my liver up I would have died, I went back to work a month earlier than the doctors told me to & then got pregnant 9 months later after the doctor told me not to in the next 2 years, so from the worst experience of my life (well til my divorce that is) came the greatest joy of my life! I had an exhaust leak & passed out at t! The only other time was twice, I almost drowned, still do not know how to swim!

    A car coming so close 2 hitting mine that it felt lyk my heart had leaped out of my chest. Also a few other minor near death experiences lyk choking or nearly drowning but hey, I'm still here.
    Nothing lyk needing to be resuscitated, on the verge of death, holding on 4 dear lyf. Mine were either coincidental or accidental.

    Though, I just remembered how bad my asthma was when I was young, waking up once, during the night, coughing up my lungs, struggling 2 breathe.
    I can't remember who heard me but someone came 2 my rescue - that sure felt lyk I was going to die but that could have just been the panic washing ova me.

    I nearly drowned once in the middle of a lake. Scared the $%^&*! out of me. Come to think of it, I haven't been swimming since, except in swimming pools.

    Once when I was little I almost drowned in a pool. I was holding my floatie and messing around, seeing how long I could stay underwater while still holding onto it, but then once it flipped over and I lost my grip on it and started sinking, but I kicked really hard and got back to the floatie.
    Then a year or two ago, I was going swimming with a lot of my family and my mom and I were about to jump in at the same time when my cousin Patrick pushed us in. My mom fell in on top of me, kicking my head on accident really hard, and we were kind of angry for a few minutes when we finally got out, but we laughed about it later and we still do.

    I was around 6 years old and it was my first time ever at camp. I also didn't know how to swim. I jumped into the pool and went straight down. The lifeguard didn't notice that I was drowning at the time and as I started to loose my breath I started to kick my legs and drag myself near the steps so I could get out. It was one of the most scariest moments in my life. drowning

    Nope, I love everyone in my life, I have everything I need and I'm thankfull that I'm safe. But about to be. In colorado and nebraska winter 09-10 we got stuck in a snow storm. The roads were closed and we couldn't get off the high way. The winds were probably 100 mph. Then our car got stuck. We counted 69 cars and trucks flipped off to the side of the road. Scary!

    More than one. It puts your life in perspective. In my case, they made me see the senselessness of religions, patriotism and all the other bunk used to try to run your life for you.

    It happened quite some time ago. I was having trouble breathing and I was swelling like a balloon. My other half was on the road (trucker) and I was alone with my newborn. I walked over to my neighbor's and asked if she could watch the baby (she was the unofficial Godparent) and drove myself to my doctor's office. The nurse took my blood pressure and the look on her face was priceless. She had the doctor come in right away and they were like, "How did you get here?" When I told them I drove, they had a fit. They then said, "You have to go to the ER right now." So, when was having my pressure taken there, I looked up at the monitor and said, "That's impossible. Is your machine broken?" That's when they hooked me up to I don't know how many things. Within a few more minutes, I was out and didn't wake up until days later. My doctor told me how low my pulse got along with my respiration and I was shocked. Heart failure. Found out later family members stayed on watch. I'm still here though, tough as nails!! : ) I vaguely remember feeling like I was floating during the time I was out; like I could hear parts of conversation. There was no fear, no pain, nothing. It was weird.

    My mum, brother and I were watching TV, and eating chips. Part of a sharp chip got stuck in my throat and I started choking. My mum started telling me to drink some of my water but I didn't have any left in my glass, and wasn't about to get some. I was choking about for a minute. My mum didn't think of getting up and giving me the 'hoist of breath.' luckily by hitting my chest I got the chip out. I was glad I could hold my breath for 2 min. Tested it before too, I have big lungs like my dad.
