Corinne S's Experience

Experience description:   

I had a dream that came true. I sat bolt up-right early one morning, I actually scared my husband awake.  He asked, "What's wrong?"  I said, I think my mom just died, was killed in a car accident.  I said it was either me or mom, but I'm pretty sure it was mom, and the dream felt very real.  I was upset, because if had felt so real.  I saw the car and my mom in the car and she went off the road into the ditch and the car rolled and it woke me up, I was so scared.  I never told my mom about it, but a about a month after the dream, that is exactly how she died, she hit black ice side-swiped an oncoming car and rolled, as she wasn't wearing a seat-belt she was thrown out the side window and the car rolled on her.  She had a heart attack back in December and wasn't feeling very well after that, with the medication she was on, I knew she seemed very tired and I was worried about her.  It was the day after my sister's birthday in February that she died and my sister had a bad feeling all that day, that something bad was going to happen.
