Kathy J's Experience

Experience description:   

THE FIRST TIME I WAS PROBABLY 5 YRS OLD. I USE TO WALK IN MY SLEEP. ONE NIGHT I HEARD MY MOTHERS VOICE CALLING MY NAME. I SAW HER IN THE BATHROOM LEANING OVER SOMETHING. I WAS OVER BY THE DOOR AND WHEN I LOOKED TO SEE WHAT SHE WAS LOOKING AT. IT WAS ME. I WAS ASLEEP IN THE FLOOR. THEN I WAS BACK IN MY BODY AND SHE WAS PULLING ME UP OFF THE FLOOR. I THOUGHT IT VERY STRANGE BUT THOUGHT I MIGHT HAVE BEEN DREAMING.

THE NEXT TWO TIMES I WAS OLDER. AROUND 10-12 AND THEN AROUND 14-15 I WAS IN MY BED BOTH TIMES GOING TO SLEEP. THE NEXT THING I KNEW I WAS AWAKE BUT I WAS STARING AT THE CEILING ONLY IT WAS ONLY A FEW INCHES FROM MY FACE. I REACHED OUT TO TOUCH IT BUT WAS GOT SCARED AND THEN I WOKE UP.

THE LAST TIME I WAS 21 AND IN LABOR WITH MY SECOND CHILD. THE PAIN WAS VERY BAD AND WHEN THEY CAME TO PUT ME ON A GURNEY TO TAKE ME TO THE DELIVERY ROOM THEY PICKED ME UP AND KIND OF THREW ME ONTO THE GURNEY AND THE PAIN WAS SO BAD THAT THE NEXT THING I KNEW I WAS FLOATING UP OVER THE DOOR LOOKING DOWN AT MYSELF ON THE GURNEY AND THEN I WAS BACK IN MY BODY. I WAS NOT ON ANY DRUGS FOR MY LABOR. IN THOSE DAYS THEY DIDN'T GIVE YOU ANYTHING UNTIL YOU GOT INTO THE DELIVERY ROOM. THAT'S IT. BACK THEN I HAD NEVER HEARD OF OBE. IT WASN'T UNTIL LATER THAT I READ A BOOK ABOUT IT AND IT SOUNDED LIKE WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO ME.
