i had a baby. that'll do it for ya! :)
I was 17 when my Mom to whom I was very close, was killed in a car accident. When my Mom and Dad went out the door for the evening, I was on the phone and couldn't even be bothered to say, 'bye'. I wish I would have said 'I love you'. It's important to tell people you love them. You never know when it will be the last time you see them. I learned the lesson to cherish life and to show the love you feel to those around you.
I have been clinically dead, once... Dying somewhat fits the moniker "life altering", doesn't it?<br />
Since it was after a suicide attempt, 30 years ago, you can also state that it indeed made me look at life in a different way, since I'm still hanging around :)
when i nearly died coz of my asthma attack..
yep at 38 fiound a tumor on the optic nerve, They cannot remove it. Changed how I see things and went back to school.
I had an accident in an engineering company. I was subjected to hydrocluric gass that burn my throat and lungs. It put me in hospital and I also was dead for about 30 seconds. It left me with post trumatic stress and insonia.....The up side of this event was that I changed my career and now make sure that I take any opertunities offered to me. I have a veiw of try anything once now and have had alot of experiances that i would not have had if I was still like my old self.
January 1990, I was a truck driver, and I got stranded in a sudden snow storm. The only place I could get to was a little bar, every place else was closed! Thats where I met my now wife. She was a bar tender there,and there were only about five people in the joint. Two days later I quit my job and moved in with her. She has given me four great sons and twenty one years of wedded bliss.
Thirty years ago I went from England to work in South East Asia for six months<br />
i have lived here - more or less - ever since
See my story, "It's Hard to Kill a Dead Man."
Many but death changes everthing.
