I started heavily using methamphetamines for a couple of months. I had not slept for at least a week. One day, I decided that I needed to stop using drugs entirely and sleep it all off. As I closed my eyes, I thought, ‘Finally I will sleep this off and feel better and never touch this stuff again.’
I saw blackness; not just the blackness that you see when you start to doze off, but a void-darkness. I was thinking this is not sleep. Then I started realizing that this is amazing; I felt really peaceful. Unfortunately, I don’t really know what happened next.
However, I just finished reading another person’s NDE and knew that I really had an NDE myself. I remember waking up and realized that I had been somewhere else. It’s like having an experience as a child and then later remembering bits and pieces, but the whole story isn’t there because something is missing. Finally, I recalled most of it, I was dead. I thought how inconveniently dead I was. I was angry because I had things to do and I would never have time to do all of it. It still makes me wonder what all those things are I have to do. All I know is that to this day, I can remember every thought I had about the experience. Knowing that I have too much to do and I cannot die no matter what.
