Cody S's Experience

Experience description:   

Spring of 1975, I was with my boyfriend and another couple at a Senior Party. This is the information I was given after the fact: On the drive home the driver hit a telephone pole. The front seat passenger was hurt the worst - a broken jaw and hip. The driver suffered a broken nose, my boyfriend went through the windshield but had no serious injuries. I have no memory even to this day of the accident. I suffered a brain concussion and have retrograde amnesia.

My memory of that night is: my friends drove me home, stopping in front of my driveway. I got out and said my goodnights. I proceeded to walk to the back gate, we did not use the front door - company only!. When I got to the gate I lifted the latch - the next thing I new I was sitting in a ditch??? While the paramedics were attending to the front passenger, I sat in the ditch for about ten minutes saying over and over "Who am I. Where am I?" I was told that I gave them quite a scare...Cody

P.S. During late 1975 while in boot camp I had a NDE, will share this later...
