Experience description:   

It was so long ago, and although I have spoken about it, over the years it has became quite vague. 

All I can tell you really is that I can remember walking home from junior school with my friend, and then, I saw myself in the distance walking and talking to her.  I don't know what I was saying, it was like I was watching someone else walking down the road. 

I do not know how I "caught up with myself" or how the experience ended either.  Perhaps it was a dream, I just don't know.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience:  Uncertain

      Explanation:  I am not too sure, I had an epileptic fit for which I was prescribed medication which I only took for a very short period of time.  I can not remember if this experience happened before or after though.  (By the way, I was very ill after the seizure, I fractured my scull in two places and had a blood clot behind my right ear - if this is important)

Was the experience difficult to express in words?  Yes

At the time of the experience, was there an associated life threatening event?  No response

      Describe:  I am not too sure, I had an epileptic fit for which I was prescribed medication which I only took for a very short period of time.  I can not remember if this experience happened before or after though.  (By the way, I was very ill after the seizure, I fractured my scull in two places and had a blood clot behind my right ear - if this is important)

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?  not too sure what you mean.  It was about 3.20pm.  I was fully awake and alert at the time - I think!

Was the experience dream like in any way?  Possibly, really don't know.

Did you experience a separation of consciousness from your body?  Uncertain

Describe your appearance or form apart from your body:  It was like I was standing watching myself walking away.  I didn't look at myself, i.e. look down or at my hands - if that is what you mean.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?  Unsure, probably very confused.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?  Complete silence

 Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure?  Uncertain

      Describe:  Not that I can remember

 Did you see a light?  No

 Did you meet or see any other beings?  Uncertain

      Describe:  Only myself, my friend and everyone else walking down the road to home.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?  No

Has the experience affected your relationships?  Daily life?  Religious practices etc.?  Career choices?  It hasn't

Have you shared this experience with others?  Yes

      Describe:  Disbelief really, depends on the person, I haven't really told that many people.  I suppose I have been quite selective with who I tell.  Always seems to be during a conversation about strange things.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?  We had 4 family deaths around this time (these deaths occurred the year of my serious seizure and again, unfortunately I can not remember if this was the same time or not)

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?  No

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?  Yes

      Explain:  Yes, there is no more information that I can offer you.
