    Not Once, But Twice

    I have had two near death experiences. Once when I was a little girl, and the other time about six years ago. Although it's been a long time since the first incident, I still remember it well. When I was young I had very bad asthma, and when it acted up it made me sick. One day I...

    Fear On the Cape Fear River

    I never particularly had a yen to try kayaking. I mean, it wasn't one of those things that was on my list of things to do before I die. But when my fiance suggested a kayak trip, I said, "Sure, why not?" So we slogged off to an unmentionable kayak outfitter shop in...

    the Hardest Choice

    It was the pain that woke me and I knew instantly that it was time. I nudged my sleeping husband and glanced at my bedside clock: 2:15am.   “I think this is it.” I said. “We’d better ring the hospital and tell them we’re on our way.&rdquo...

    When I was ten I got

    so sick I almost died in my sleep. I remember dreaming about the Grim Reaper. We played chess, and I remember he had to teach me because I knew nothing about it. It was close, but I remember those black eyes looking at me and a voice saying "beginner's luck."

    but for some reason everything I do always seems to cause an accident. I'm clumsy. 1 year old - I fell off a bike, only about 6 inch fall and somehow broke my leg bone - apparently I have brittle bones 3 years old - I was on a swing (all by myself). The swing was quite high...

    I've technically had 3 near death experiences.

    when I was little, still in a car seat, my mother and I almost got hit by an oncoming train. It's the first memory I have as a child, and it's probably because it was so traumatizing. Several years later I almost drowned in a pool, but a random stranger jumped in and saved me...
