Mark R's Experience

Experience description:   

I had gotten a badly broken nose and it was very bloody. At the time it was painless and I was just yelling and screaming out of anger, and I just wiped the massive amounts of blood away and eventually went to sleep. I woke up the next day and the side of my nose was sideways and I could smell this horrible smell that I can still remember. I went into the bathroom and started putting my nose back into place because the Middle part, the septum was very crooked at the top. Basically I drove myself crazy because I made a habit of panicking and going to the bathroom and trying to set my nose again, and all I would do was think about my nose and go to the bathroom and snap it around even more causing myself extreme pain that I would ignore and keep Messing with my nose. I would be very conscious about my breathing and it led to me having sleep deprivation. I don't know how long I didn't get good sleep for, but at some point I was unable to tell whether I was awake or asleep at times. I would be walking in the hallway at school and would see them twisting and turning, and sometimes I would talk to people and out of nowhere their faces would scream at me with sharp teeth and wide open mouths and I would wake up in class sometimes or I would wake up in bed. My grades fell badly and relationships with people suffered a lot, people could tell I was becoming whacked out. At a party I busted out crying in front of my friends and I am not the type of person to cry over something like this. I was going crazy. Well one night I knew I was in bed and my nose was feeling weird so I was laying on my back for a long time, and eventually I felt the intense vibrations and heard a female voice screaming my name.  I had read about them and tried it before but was unable to do it on purpose . Well l lifted my arm a little and then my legs started raising up , and then it felt as if I was hovering upwards and then I had turned upside down. My back was on the ceiling and I was looking at my body laying there, and it was very freaky. While out of body I was just staring at my nose and freaking out a little but something told me you are going to be alright. My aunt was in the kitchen baking that night and I left my room and was just watching her. she didn't seem to know I was there and it was very creepy. It felt like I was a ghost. I went back to my room looked at myself and gasped for air, and it felt as if I was one thin layer of skin that got inhaled by my real body and I was back. After that happened I was intensely shocked and I got over the nose thing a couple days after that.
