quarantined at home, after my eldest brother and I were looking in the
mirror...thinking we really looked alike. He said except for, your eyes are
yellow. We looked at each other, I went directly to the hospital. Diagnosis,
Hepatitis A. My liver was swollen, almost from under my breast to my waist.
Unusually large. At the time of quarantine, no one was allow to be near me of
course. My food was delivered by my family to my door. My family all were
given a "gamma globulin" injection.
this six weeks of quarantine, being alone got very boring. I took up Yoga
again, as I started it when I was around 14. One night I was relaxing doing the
"dead man's poise." A very deep relaxation, meditation. I'd done many times
before I was ill.
like time was in suspension, during separation from my body. All of a sudden I
was up in the corner of the room I'd been laying in, bodiless! Just sight, was
there. What I saw was me, laying on the floor doing my, "dead man's poise." I
was in disbelief, I wanted to make sure it was really happening, so I watched me
for a while, then I was frightened! I didn't want to leave my body, I wanted to
go back, I did. All of a sudden I was back, back in my body...Maybe I should
have enjoyed being where I was for awhile longer. I've never forgot the
experience in over 31 years. Still think of it at times.
