What I learnt, pay attention to your surroundings and don't have music loud while walking across the road...also RUNNNNNNNNNNN!

When I was at High School students always ran across the busy roads and nearly killed themselves. (this happens at other Schools too and not too just High School or immature boys, girls did it even more than the guys at my old first high school!)
Well, I think I'd always been sensible and cautious and waited on this quite busy road when everyone ran across. The road has been known for Many accidents and even a death recently. My mum even had a 3 (or more) car accident there in the 80's! It's right across the road from another school which also increases the risk of accidents. It's not a long road, but because it's a bit of a blind corner in parts with a bend and people speed down it for some reason, it's quite bad. Actually, the road is very short. Broken up with roundabouts too!!!
Well, one day after school I was trying to cross the busy road and was waiting in the middle of the road on the median strip thing. To my left a young guy was about to turn and I was watching him. He was 100% focused on his left side. He came my way and finally decided to look when he was about 1mm from my foot!! For some reason I was not scared at all! But I couldve easily been killed at the speed he was going!
I've also been in one car accident and also a time were we had to drive in a ditch from an insane laughing driver coming our way on the wrong side of the road!!!
Another time when I was little 2 guys came to out door with guns and mum said she saw them following us once. We couldve easily been shot at the door if we opened it that night!
A girl at my first High school once held a knife in cooking clace towards me and said she wanted to kill me with a evil look in her eyes. Which scared the hell outta me.
edit: One time Mum had a problem with her old car. The day we got it fixed we were told it could've exploded and killed us that very day or very soon! Mum, I was so shocked by that! We don't have this car anymore. We sold it because it had so much problems. We were always getting it fixed! We sold it in 2009 and we had it since my birth I think so it was long past its used date! We had quite a few problems with it breaking down before driving me to school causing me to be late and also stopping on main roads and we couldn't get it started. Glad we got rid of that old bomb! I miss that car sometimes as It was mum's 'signature car' lol. It's hard to believe but I still remember the whole licence! LOL!

not me, but my brother! he fell asleep at the wheel of his car and was very lucky! He'd been working a lot that week so was very exhausted! He woke up when he started hitting the reflector posts on the side of the road! it was on a turning lane to get off a highway/overpass and he could have easily gone into oncoming traffic, or drove off the bridge, or smashed into the barrier separating the two sides of the road or hit a tree! So thankful that he woke up and could steer it into the dirt, and his car had minimal damage! Just goes to show that nodding off at the wrong second for only a millisecond at the wheel is pretty scary and dangerous! Hope he learnt from it!
YIKES! Thank God he is ok! I think I knew someone who had that happen with those bump things on the side and middle of the road. They make weird noises when you drive over them which woke the person up. They said that's what the bumps are for, but they are not always on the side of the road which I don't understand if that is true
This wasn't really a NDE but along the same stretch of road that person drove towards us, one time there was some obviously stoned people in front of us. The passenger kept jumping up and down in the seat non-stop and they were zig-zagging all over the road! Even across the train track when you cross it and acting weird. That scared us. I think someone drove towards us again on that same road by memory too. Really scary!

because I wasn't breathing properly and was going blue.
When I was 6, I walked down stairs in my sleep. In 2009, I broke my leg and was bleeding from an artery.

I am a Teacher of Math and Science, and it seems I got this Illnes from one of my Pupils. Frist I thougt, it is a more harmeless flu, and I did not feel verry well when I came home from Scool on Thirsday evening. On Friday, I staied in bed, but it still did not seem to be dangerus. On Saturday I feeled verry bad, and we caled a docter. For it was Weekend, we could not call our usual doctor but only the weekend-duty-doctor, but she said, it is not to bad, harmeless flu.... On Sunday exactly the same.
Monday morning, I asked myself If I better go to school for some of my pupils had to do a test, but I did not.
My Back started to hurt, but I thougt that came from couhging a lot... On thursday It hurt so much I could no longer lie... it hurted so badly, but I still had no Idea about a pneumonia... but I went to see our doctor. She gave me some medicin against the hurt, ond took some blood for the laboratory... In the evening she called just the moment I wanted to ask her, if I can increase the dose of the Medicine, because it still hurts so badly - she sayed, I can, but I have to go to the hospital, because the Laboratory sayed, there is something not all right, someone should get the papers instantly from her... some hours later I was at the hospital and after a long time to wait and a short examination, they toled me I had a verry hard pneumonia and gave me O2 over a mask and drove me to the intensiv-station. There they talled me, it is that bad that they have to intubate me and for that, there is need of a anesthesia... but they will try it some more time without... I fall asleep... and when I woke up, it was 3 weeks later. My Mother tolled me that I allmoust died, that the whole family came to say ggodby because the doctors sayed, there was no hope... but somewhow I survived.
I am verry glad I survived! Since then I see Live no longer as a Duty, I see it as a verry worthy thing, something nice. Since that I am happy of every new day. On the other hand I have no longer fear from death. It is not that bad you think. And it makes no sense to live only because of fear of dead.
Life is nice!

Two years ago when I was walking by the exercise bike with my bare feet, my right little toe got cut by the unpadded exercise bike stand and was bleeding profusely. I reacted quickly by pressuring the toe with my hands to stop it bleeding before washing the cut under cold water and wrapping it with bandages. It took a week for the cut to heal.
what? you cut your toe, how does that = almost dying?

Thankfully, I was just bumped and bruised but the car wasn't saved.

Once my brother farted while he was sitting down, and I swear on my life the floor shook. I had never been so scared.

I found the girl inside of me that I've been missing for so long.
I told her that I'd never leave...
