Debra H's Experience
was taken to the O.R. for the delivery of my still born. The contractions were
very difficult to handle. Suddenly whenever a contraction started I found myself
floating in the corner of the ceiling watching a my body leave my body. It was
as though there were 3 of me. The farther the body moved away from my body the
pain decreased. I would relax and then the whole process started over. I have
never heard of anybody having a third body.
