Not Today

I was 10 years old. My 17 year old sister was curling my hair before school. It was 7 a.m. Suddenly, I felt really sick to my stomach. I told my sister that I needed to lie down, but she still had the curling iron in my hair and told me to wait a second. I couldn't. I passed out. When I landed, I hit my head on a hammer that was in the floor. Everything went black, then it turned to white. Not a light, but it was a hazy white fog. When I finally began to see through it I noticed that I was in a waiting room.

I had never seen any of these people before. There was a receptionist there. I went up to her. She said, "Can I help you little girl?" I said, "Yes, I don't know where I am, could you tell me?" She asked for my name. I gave it to her and when she turned around I noticed a wall of files. It was the biggest wall I'd ever seen and it looked as if it went on forever. She pulled a file out and said, "Ah here it is...wait." She sounded annoyed and possibly even mad. "You're not suppose to be here today." She threw the file on the counter and the sound of it hitting echoed. It echoed as everything went black again and then white.

As I came out of the haze this time, I realized that I was in the ambulance. The doctor still doesn't know what caused me to pass out, and I have never passed out before or since.

"Burned the candle at both ends"

I rarely slept and "burned the candle at both ends." As a result, I succumbed to mononucleosis for the second time. (I supposedly had it before when I was 6 or 7 years old. Some doctors believe that it never completely goes away)

Ancestors Care About Us and Our World

Diagnosed terminal and in and out of consciousness for several weeks, I had been told there was no help on too many planes to explain here. Regardless, I was 39 days into a 30 day life expectancy. I weighed not only the opportunity for assistance but the practicality of it as well. I slept for hours during the days and nights. I was sicker than sick. My doctors later explained that was the sickest any human being could ever be. I was at the doorway of death in both mind and body. Most of my memory of those days are limited to say the least. As are any recollections of any dreams. Dreams were just seemingly non-existent for me and honestly still are rare today. But the one memory and the events

Grandma heard me!

I crashed my bicycle when several friends and I were playing follow the leader and we were jumping a manhole cover. I flipped over and landed on my head. I can remember leaving my body and seeing myself on the ground there was no pain but I felt panic because I didn't understand what was going on.
