Have you ever had a near-death experience?
Share your stories!

I was almost killed by a shark a couple of years ago XD
I was snorkling around the coral reef off of the Florida Keys, and I swam out too far on my own and saw a shark O.o
I tried to turn around, but i was really panicing..last thing that happened was i looked under the water, and saw the shark charging towards me O.o so i swam for my life..scary..i thought that was the end of me..
...but i still really love sharks XD

when I was 5, I was trying out my new rollerblades outside my house on christmas night. this white car drove up and stopped right in front of my house. I just remember seeing the door open and I rollerbladed as fast as I could up to the door of my house. o.O to think I might not even be here anymore if I had stayed there and not run off.. scary.

on CHRISTMAS, to boot. people are so sick. T_T;;

When I was 13, I had once had a disease that I can't breath properly.
I fainted and felt awful and my parents sent me to hospital.
The whole thing was very scary.

October 30th, 2004, 10:56 AM
Yikes, those sound so scary! (Especially the shark one... o_o I'm scared to death of them!)

One time my brother and I almost died on the same day. I remember posting this story once in another thread. When I was little, my mom and I had gone shopping while my little brother stayed at my grandparent's house. When we got back, my mom noticed that everyone was gone, even my great-grandfather. She called my aunt to see if she knew what had happened, after waiting and being unable to contact anyone else. While she was on the phone, she didn't realize that I had wandered off. After only a few seconds she noticed that I was gone, and immediately ran to check our swimming pool. She ended up finding me already underwater, and thankfully she got me out quickly! Since I had only been in a few seconds it didn't take long for me to wake up and everything, but it just scared my mom to death!

Then, right after we came back inside my grandmother walked in and told my mom that my brother had been run over by one of their golf carts! (By accident) Thankfully, he didn't get hit by one of the tires--It just drove over him, but he was burned a little.

Now though, we're both perfectly okay and you would never be able to tell that either of those things happened!

I also remember that one time in Florida when we were at the beach, I was swimming around in the water and felt something weird brush up against my leg. O_o Nothing happened, but it's just a freaky thought now because I've read that sharks have taste buds on their skin, and usually before attacking something they'll touch it just to see if it tastes good to them.

And I might can think of some more stories later...

October 30th, 2004, 11:01 AM
Nope...I'm a very lucky person! Hehe. ^_^

October 30th, 2004, 11:12 AM
wow! do you know what kinda shsrk it was DF?..

ive had 2 experiences
The first time was when I was getting swimming lessons,it was at the local YMCA and the instructors were like 13.....so the instructor was helping another kid and I slipped and fell and no1 except a little girl saw so she told the instructor and I got out...i was under about 15 seconds....so my mom took me out of that swim class because there was never a life guard on duty ( from what we saw ) and the instructor was too immature.....so it was kinda scary I was only 6 .....and it didnt scare me so bad that I didnt ever want to go in a pool again, I learned to swim a month later....

The other one was when i had pnemonia ( spelling? ),I first had it for a week and then it came back and I was living off jello and crap....then i got well again and got the flu...overall I was in horrible health , i wasnt exactly close to death but it was pretty bad...

October 30th, 2004, 11:13 AM
I'm way...way...too lucky.

October 30th, 2004, 11:14 AM
Wow...all of those experiences mentioned are scary. o.0 I personally haven't had a near-death experience that I can think of, and hopefully won't.

October 30th, 2004, 11:23 AM
This summer I was swimming in the ocean and I got separated from my friend and I felt something beside me and there was this shark trailing me. Luckily I escaped him. Then another summer I was swimming at our pool club, and my brother jumped on top of me, sitting on my shoulders and pushed me underwater. He would not let me up for nearly a minute. Eventually I got him off of me, but I nearly drowned. Several years ago, I was with my neighbors (we were carpooling home from choir practice). They had all gotten out of the auto, and I started choking on a cream saver. No one was there to save me, but I was able to dislodge the candy. Since then I have not eaten any of those candies. I have been pushed down stairs, nearly run over, and in goodness knows how many car accidents. People like hurting me for some odd reason. O.o

October 30th, 2004, 11:36 AM
I have had too many...starting when I was born ;-;...the umbilical cord was choking me and I actully died for like 2 seconds o,o'...

October 30th, 2004, 11:39 AM
yeah..i was taking a walk and someone had a gun,and they were trailing me.so i ran into a bathroom and hid.i was on vacation,so i told my dad and we never went back.

October 30th, 2004, 11:40 AM
A GUN!!! Oh my! >_< eppp thats not good... mine actually happened last week... kind of comman a car crash I was the only one in the car and a car hit the back of my car and I did a fish tail thought the intersection into a telephone pole... I just got out of the hospital ^_^ and Im glad to be here ^_~

October 30th, 2004, 11:42 AM
hmm... when i was really little... like 4 i was at a friends house and they were having a party :D ... i tried to swim in my swimming pool etc etc. i went under :P they didnt see me for a minute or so... i was screaming my lungs out thinking they would hear me -_-;; man was i mad after when they finally saw me...
there has been countless times when i was little and had really high fevers... and my parents always had to go to the hospital... ^^;; im still alive thou :D
oh yea... i almost got hit by a car 3 weeks ago... somebody's mom wasnt watching where she was going when i was riding my bike home from school >=(

October 30th, 2004, 11:44 AM
!!! people really need to be more careful... Im glad ur ok

October 30th, 2004, 11:45 AM
It's surprising the number of people who have had near-death experiences ^^ ..in a kinda scary way XD
So many involve swimming pools O.O

Not sure what kind of shark it was, tyranitar, i just remember it being about 6 foot long, and a sort of brown-grey colour..i didnt stick around to examine it more closely XD

October 30th, 2004, 11:47 AM
hmm...6 feet ...i'm glad you DIDNT stick around to see it.....brown grey color?...maybe a nurse shark ...thats what color they are ..and they are around that length...

October 30th, 2004, 11:48 AM
Wow Sharks are awsome... That must have been a really exstrem exsperience did u feel the addrenilyn puping though u... you must have been swimming fast.. once again Im glad ur all ok

October 30th, 2004, 11:49 AM
Yes. it almost happend when I was aboute 10 years old. I run home back from school and I didn't stopd when I got to a road. so when I passed it, a car almost smashed me :confused: after a few seconds of thinking what almost happend to me, I started to run again home.

October 30th, 2004, 11:51 AM
Geez.. and I thought I'd be the only one to post about near-death drowning Ehh anyways, if I remember correctly, I already posted about this... When I first moved here to F.L (Florida) I lived in a very nice, and huge apartment,(it reminded me of a a Motel.. and they PWN o.o) it was pretty nice.. huge p00l, gambling room, nice park.. much more. Did I mention the big p00l? This is where my story comes in..

I'm standing outside with my dad, and his friends, and like always... he's too busy having a g00d time to pay much attention to me. -_- I.. being eager to swim, asked him if it was alright for me to swim.. he replys: ''Yeah, go ahead'' So me.. not able to swim jumped in.. My dad knew that I couldent without my arm floatations, and I did have them on.. but they had no air in them.. After a while my dad's friend noticed I was at the bottom of the p00l, though I was doing ok, just nervous. I heard my dad telling me to keep jumping to the surface to get air until he reached me, (which I did) but eventually I got tired, and couldent do so after a while. This is when I was at the bottom with my eyes open saying to myself ''I know I wont make it..'' (I was about 4-6 years old)

My dad, and his friend went to save me, I was quite pissed about the whole thing since my dad wasent my savior o.O Though that dident really matter.. I was actually quite worried about him. >_< When he told my mom what happened she lost her mind... Just letting you guys know I still love to swim, and my dads fine. o.O

That's by far the worse I'll put down.


October 30th, 2004, 11:51 AM

Once my nose startaed bleeding so much that I lost almost half of my body's blood that day. I could not even stand up, then I just felt like I needed water, soI asked my cusin for cold water on the way to the hospital, I trowed the water on my head. The doctors told me that if I had n ot done that my nose would not calm down and I would not be here.

October 30th, 2004, 12:02 PM
wow from a nosebleed...1 time i hit my nose on a door ( dont ask ) it its bled once a week ever since that ....pretty bad nose bleed but nuthing serious...

October 30th, 2004, 12:05 PM
Swimming Pools are cars tend to be the norm ^^;
Wow, a fatal nosebleed? scary..

I don't think it was a nurse shark -they dont attack unless provoked ^^ and only eat small shellfish
I was quite a few metres above this shark, but it saw me panicing and charged towards me ^^;
It might've been some kind of reef shark?

October 30th, 2004, 12:07 PM
yeah i was gonna say, nurse sharks arent mean or nething....i'm gonna look somore have 2 windows up 1 PC other eh...some shark site.....surfing the net is so fun...

nurse shark ooo aaa

October 30th, 2004, 12:42 PM
I had a sort of near-death experience when I was probably around 7. Anyways, I know I've told this story before too. It happened at my grandfather's house. I had probably just learned to ride a bike and I wanted to show off to him. Afterwards my dad and my grandfather went into the backyard and told me not to bring my bike back there. Did I listen? Of course not. >_< Turns out, I rode my bike quite fast into the backyard and there just happens to be a steep hill back there. I ended up falling down that hill. Halfway down the hill was a tractor with a flatbed attached to it. My head came just inches from hitting it. I ended up with just a few cuts and bruises but if I had hit the flatbed... I don't even want to think about the possibilities. x_x

A couple years ago, my friend had a near-death experience too. We were on our 8th grade Spanish trip to Montreal. She decided to try to cross in the middle of the road. She didn't realize there was a car coming. The driver even saw her crossing... and then he sped up. o_o; Luckily she made it across okay... but it was really scary to watch.

October 30th, 2004, 12:44 PM
o_X... scary driver... o_x
whats a flatbed? (im sorry but i cant help me being stupid :P)

I don't know how old I was when this happend.My family was eatin dinner and I got done,so I went up stairs.I started to go down stairs and I fell,all the way down them,I didn't have to go to the hospital,thank God.

I was 10,me and my sister were at the top of the stairs and she pushed me,I started to surf down them tell I hite the gate(we had a gate on them at the time).

I was 11,my brothers and sisters were at the park(my mom and dad were gone).NE ways we were playin and some one called my name,I was on top of the slide and I started to get off.But I triped and fell and hit my mouth and mt lip got stuck on my braces,we went home and my sister called my mom & dad,they came home and toke me to the hospital.

I think thats it,if I think of more I'll post them.

October 30th, 2004, 1:41 PM
hehe, yeah everyone tends to get injuries when they're younger
I swallowed a 2 pence coin (very big) when i was 4 and had to go to hospital to have it quickly removed, and i fell off my bike, smashed up my face, and broke one of the front teeth when i was about 10 ^^; luckily no scars though, and i had my tooth fixed

October 30th, 2004, 2:05 PM
I was in a car accident when I was 3. I also recently got hurt by a random guy on the street. He cut off one of my fingers.

Cut off one of your fingers? Ahhh!! I had never had a near death experience. But I've seen them on TV a couple times. Hey is it true you see a angel or something like that? I get scared really easy sometimes too...

October 30th, 2004, 3:07 PM
I didn't see an angel -i just kinda though 'so this is it..this is where i will die..well at least i'll be eaten by an animal'
..i love animals and nature XD i know..really random thought to have when u think it's the end XD but it's what i thought ^^;

October 30th, 2004, 5:01 PM
yup...well...sorta near death...if you consider it...a bit...
When I was 5, i was biking along the road(wearing a helmet XD) while crossing the street, a car came over the hill 30 mph(she told my dad and me after she hit me) and she hit me...funny part is, i think i got only 1 bruise and thats it...
not sure if thats near death at all

October 30th, 2004, 5:13 PM
I actually don't think that I've had ay near death experiences at all. Though I have had near-near-death experiences. XD I must be some kind of Momma's boy. =P

espeon and umbreon
October 30th, 2004, 5:23 PM
No never. Even though when I was little I nearly got drowned or fell off the bike without helmet on... Well I don't call myself a lucky person since I get hit by something everyday ( it is true)

October 30th, 2004, 5:56 PM
Let's see, when I was 18 months old my family discovered I had a peanut allergy............the hard way. It wasn't pretty, and thank god I don't remember it.

O>o nose bleeds? ... my nose bleeds cause i live in arizona :P it bleeds like... 5 times a day.. .-_-;; then u get real tired
nurse shark ooo aaa

i once had a nosebleed problem, and I was sick at the end of it, when I went to the hospital. in fact, I was vomiting the blood :confused: But why am I to complain? I've been to the hospital 3 times on three separate occasions (hit by a sled in the winter, excesive nosebleeds, and a cat scratch in the eye :meow: ) Want to know my near-death experience? I insulted my sister a few too many times... :dead:

October 30th, 2004, 6:08 PM
Hoo, yeah, a few actually. XD
Once, I was swimming I looked under me and till this day I could swear it was a shark. I started learning about them also. XD If it looked at me, it would have tried to attack me. Then, when I was 3, I was running about as usual like a maniac, so theres this 30 ft. tree next door. it was windy, so it blew over into my room. XD
And DF, your right. There is no way it was a Nurse Shark. However, if you give me a full description I could probably tell you what it was.
If it was a reef shark, your really lucky.

October 30th, 2004, 6:59 PM
Hmm, I was never in one near death experience except when I almost got ran over a car a number of times. I never have luck with them. XD
One of them happened when I was busy playing gameboy in the middle of the street (Boy, I was so sucked into the game and forgot about the street lights so I passed right by) The next thing I know, I hear a car honking while driving like 50 mph right at me. And you know what I did? I jumped away. XD But my leg got hit alittle but it was okay.

October 30th, 2004, 7:04 PM
yeah most reef sharks are dangerous ..and extremely fast!!!so you are quite lucky!

October 31st, 2004, 3:15 AM
i had a few and so have my 2 bro's

a bit of my family history so you dot get lost whith who im taliking about i am the oldest child i have 2 bros then a sister my bros are 12 & 9 and my sister is 7 im 14

the first 1 happened when my brother 7 was about 18 or so months anyway...

my mum was haveing her room painted so she was staying in my sisters room (she was born a few months later) my brother was entertaining himself in the loungeroom (watching tv i think) after getting bored i got up and crawled to a power point (this pertickuler (sp) powerpoint (luckly) is just outside my sisters room) and my brother stuck a wire coathanger in the power point i was sitting watching her (because she was ironing my shirt) i looked out towards the loungeroom and saw sparks in the door way i told mum and she flew out the room kicking my bro from the powerpoint and since that day he has been good at maths

this next 1 is at the beach and happened to me and my brother 12 (not a shak tale lol)
i was on the beach making a sand castle and my brother was in the water (i was about 8-10 yrs he was 5-7yrs) some how he got out heaps heaps far fom the shore and couldnt touch the bottom or reach the jetty (don't ask what its doing there) not thinking i jumped up and started running down the jetty to get him (i should of got a towl and pulled him in but i didnt) i jumped strait in (even though if i get salt water in my eyes they puff up and i have to have them covered and rinsed 4, 3 days) i managed to pull him to the shore nearly being pushed under by by him so he could stay up. a few days later someone put an article in the local paper about what i did and i even got intervied on tv (they gave me a 50 dollar check because i was scared and because nothing like this had happened in this town

the 3rd 1 happened to just me
my brother and i were riding home frommy auntys house and i was taliking to him not realy looking at the road and i saw by brother stop but i kept going a bit. i looked the other way in time to see a truck comming down the side street i slamed on my frount bike brake and went flying my bike got crushed becuase the driver didnt stop (he didnt even find out if i was ok)

the final 1 happeden to me again but this time no whitnesses

last year in march i was riding over an overpass (i hill that cars can drive over while cars and other things can go underneeth in this case trains although this has nothing to do with them) my mum told me to keep of the car part as much as possible so i decided to avoid the car bit altogether on my way down the other side my bike sliped and went down a cement slope with only my frount tire touching (dont ask how but my back tire was up by my head) and some how i managed to get the tire down before i got to the road at the bottom and then i nearly got hit by a car (this time it stopped)

i think a shadow of death hangs over me (notice how all the nde's in my family always happen when im around)

October 31st, 2004, 3:59 AM
All i know is that the guy on the boat, when i got back on, said he had seen a reef shark that day around the area ^^;
Really fast and dangerous? Wow, you guys are making me feel even more lucky to be alive! *kisses ground*

October 31st, 2004, 4:31 AM
yeah....Black Tip Reef Sharks are known to be extremely deadly...

October 31st, 2004, 5:35 AM

YES! o.o *cough*

It was just last week actually. I was stupid enough to walk into the road without looking, and a car nearly hit me. >.< It was the one time I didn't look, yet the one time my parents' worst nightmare nearly came true. It definitely taught mt forever to look before I walk.

so scary.

November 14th, 2004, 7:47 PM
I've gotten myself into a few near-death experiences when I was little, due to my overly eager attitude (I've wised up a bit because of them though, thankfully, hehe).

One that really stuck with me that I remember posting on a different thread a while back, was when my mom saved me from a passing car by yanking on the hood of my jacket. My mom, my older sister, and I, stopped at the grocery store one day to buy a few things when it happened. I was about 5 at the time, so my mom helped me out of the car and placed me on the sidewalk, only for a second to help unbuckle my sister. While she was busy, I thought I would get a head start, and rushed out into the street to get to the store. Unfortunately, I didn't see the truck zooming down the street on my right. By this time my mom was finished getting my sister out and quickly caught sight of the truck coming at me on the street, frantically dashing onto it to get me. Luckily, it was pretty cold that day so I was wearing my jacket, which was the only thing my mom could extend her hand and grasp. She tugged on my hood, pulling me out of the way of the truck before it rushed by. I was pretty shaken up, but that was mostly due to my mom's scolding, hehe. Can't say I didn't deserve it!

Oh, and I supposedly stuck a penny in a wall socket once, but I'm not entirely sure (I always thought my sister was the one who did it, but when I brought the incident up the other night everyone seems to say it was me. *shrugs* Ah well, hehe.). Either way it only caused a slight shock though, so there wasn't any permanent damage.

Even so, It wasn't a very bright idea!
*Drumset play and crickets chirp*
Nope, hehe...

There's more where that came from, but these aren't very comforting memories to recall all at once, hehe. I'll tell them later!

November 14th, 2004, 8:02 PM
Hmmm, about the only things I can remember are my car crashes and...I'll leave the 2nd one out.

I can remember I was 12 or so, and my mom and me were on our way home from a doctor. We had stooped at a intersection, my mom had gotten into the wrong lane, and the other driver had gone on a red. All I saw was that we couldn't stop...and that is the worst when you know it's coming but you can't do anything about it. So, all I was able to do was just to brace for the hit...I ended up banging my head on something and I was in the hospital for about three days after. I was the only one that got hurt...go fig. It sucked because my neck was so sore after it...the one thing that always bother me is that my mom's airbag went off...and mine didn't...egh fate I suppose. Good thing I had that seat belt on or it would have been worse...least I went out like a lamp after we hit...0.o

November 15th, 2004, 5:53 AM
According to my mum, I've had a lot, but I don't remember any of them.

One time, when I was about 2, my mum was on the phone. I walked into the toilet and pulled the blue thing out, and ate it. o.O;; I walked into her room and my mouth was all blue. She took me to the hospital, and they treated my poisoning. I laugh whenever she mentions that.

Another time, I was having a bath when I was 4. My mum went to get the shampoo, and I noticed a razor sitting by the bath. Curiosity got the better of me, and a few seconds later, I screamed out. Her friend came rushing in and the bath was red. I'd lost more than half of my blood. xD;;

There are probably plenty more. I'll ask mum when she wakes up.

omg! i almost drowned in 9 feet of water. i was struggling w/ my friend for like 10 minutes and i screamed help, but no one heard. i thought that it would b the last time breathing and i almost gave up. finally somehow we got 2 the ledge (we were pretty far away from it) it must have been a miracle. i inhaled SO much water, and my friend was trying 2 float on me, in fact she was strangling me! i was puking and crying, it was all too real.

when I was 5, I was trying out my new rollerblades outside my house on christmas night. this white car drove up and stopped right in front of my house. I just remember seeing the door open and I rollerbladed as fast as I could up to the door of my house. o.O to think I might not even be here anymore if I had stayed there and not run off.. scary.

on CHRISTMAS, to boot. people are so sick. T_T;;
Sorta like mine. only not on chrissy. I was riding my bike (training wheels) when I was very young and I was slow and unco. (I still am. I also have poor vision.) Then I heard a neighbour's white car come up the street, but I thought it was next-door-to-the-neighbour's car, and I drove up the neighbour's driveway. Thank goodness I managed to turn on the slope of the driveway and make it onto the neighbour-of-the-neighbour's driveway just in time.

That neighbour's neighbour's littlest child lost a leg when he was hit by a bus recently. ;-; o.O our street must be bad luck. I'm half-superstitious. ;-;

oh and when i was suffering the worst of my depression, I thought "You know, you can always end it. No, no, it's not that bad, don't suicide yourself. That's so stupid. Life will never be that bad." I just pondered it, not really considered it, and knew why people do it. ;-; nasty way to be taught...

And I think something happened at the beach once. And when I was young i reacted really badly to anaesthetic. and when I was a baby I got whooping cough really badly.

but i'm ok.

i tried suicide 7 times............

Awwwws, poor Claire! *huggles* I love sharks too, even though I would be sooo scared if I was swimming with one. Oo oO

Well, a long time ago, I was maybe 6 or 7. My older brother laid a blanket down on the ground and we took our socks off and slipped around the blanket. It was awsome at first, until I hit my head on the bunkbed post. XD I cracked my head wide open. Blood was all over my face, and you could even see my skull. o_O Well, my mom rushed me to the hospital and I got totally wasted on the medicine they gave me. XD Well, I'm alive now, but that's been the only near-death experience for me, thank God. ^0^

Ouch Kelsey, that must've hurt.

I nearly got killed twice. Once four years ago when my brother tried to drown me over a stupid watergun.

The second was just a year ago when a horse nearly gave me severe Whiplash when it went wild.

Am I happy about either of them? No, since now I don't like to swim, and I'm afraid of Horses. Life is strange, itsn't it?

November 26th, 2004, 7:48 PM
I almost got thrown off a horse. I was in a show, and he bucked.

The clozezt I can think of waz when I waz born I apparently had that umm...ack! I can't remember the word! >< The bellybotton cord, I guezz I"ll zay for now, waz wrapped around my throat. Courze, that waz eazy enough for the docterz to fix.
My appendix burzt over thiz lazt zummer az well. I don't remember if they zaid it could be fatel or not, but I know it waz pretty zeriouz.

I've been through a really zcary experiance, but I don't think it would have killed me.

November 27th, 2004, 7:18 PM
My bro tried to drown me at my birthday party because he was bored.

November 27th, 2004, 7:50 PM
heh...i've had a gun to my head...and i've put a gun to my cousin's head a couple of times as wel...we don't really get along..

November 27th, 2004, 7:57 PM

November 27th, 2004, 8:06 PM
are you kidding? we have like 8 in my house, i have 3 myself. he has one too. we got in an argument, so...he put it to my forehead.

November 27th, 2004, 8:16 PM
A lot of these I can imagine pretty scary. Wow. I almost drowned and my sister saved me. That's all I have to say. I just learned how to swim, just not very good...

December 1st, 2004, 5:03 AM
I have had many near death times. The latest and scariest happened only two years ago.
I was on computer playing neopets. Then, I reached for my glass of water. Outside, thunder roared, and I was shocked because it only hit a little while away. The water spilled, and it hit my computer, it short-curcuited, and, my room went afire, then my house. Mom and dad, my sis, my brother, and I, had to move in a new home. I was cornered in the fire, but, I escaped through my window.

I was young dude at the time,frist time at SixFlags. I was at the part where you got to swim and all that crap. I went to ten feet section. I could have just floated back. The thing was...water was pouring on me,keeping me down. I didn't know,asnd was soon to drown. My cousin,she knew and swim and saved me. Yeah.....that's my story.=/

Nothing really.

My friend and I found VERY fresh cougar tracks while hiking once...(I lived in washington then)
I almost drowned in a pool when I was six..I was playing with one of those hude inner-tubes made to look like a tire, and it floated into the deep end of the pool. I wasn't thinking, and I followed it and then I found myself inhaling water. My mom was in the pool with me, thank the Lord X3
and when I was 3 I had meningitis in my spinal cord and was in a coma for 7 days. My dad said that when I woke up, the first thing said was 'Where's Tigger?' XD Unfortunately my dad died of emphasyma the day after Christmas in 2002. :(

December 29th, 2004, 6:19 AM
I've almost been hit by a car like three times and my last thoughts are always something like "Oh Crap!". And I know Casty posted a long time ago, Suicide is selfish because someone always cares for you and you hurt that person moreso then you would hurt yourself. I've considered it but now the things I would have odne it over were silly and you'll think that too soemday. Think happy =3

December 29th, 2004, 6:26 AM
Yeah, suicice also shows youre weak. So many hard things have happened to me, and when I've told people about things like my dad's death, I got replies like 'I'd commit suicide if that happened to me'. 0o; Stupidity I tells ya, stupidity.
My dad always taught me that suicide was selfish and stupid, so commiting suicide because of his death would be especially bad...

Personally, I don't think there's any reason for anybody to commit suicide. >_>;;
Just thought I'd rant at someone ^^;

December 29th, 2004, 9:55 AM
2 of 'em I can think of off the bat...
Camping My first time:Me and my Dad went down to a river, my Dad went too close to trhe edge, he fell in...I tried too grab him but the current was too fast. My Dad held onto a rock,close to the edge. I grabbed onto his arm and helped him get out.but the second he stepped out, I tripped on a rock and fell in,fishes smacked my face, because I held onto a rock, I threw my self over to shore, Year 1 camping, failed :(
Year 2 camping: I went to get firewood and tripped, I fell into the fire, and got 2nd degree burns.

December 29th, 2004, 9:59 AM
that's so horrible I got 3rd degree burns when I went camping. you're lucky! good thing I only got burned in one spot!

When I was 3 years old I was obsessed with stuff.
I went out into the car to get something, and I knocked one of the gears out of place.Then next thing I know the car is rolling down our driveway backwards (Our driveway is a huge hill).I jumped out of the car before it made it down the hill.And when I jumped out of the car, my scalp got caught on the door and sliced my scalp open.There was alot of blood, and you could see my skull and stuff inside of it o.O
My neighbor Mrs.Summers was the only person outside at the time (And luckily she was a Nurse).She started screaming and then started treating me.And like everyone on my street was panicing -_-'. And then Im rushed in an ambulance to the hospital where I stay for 7 days -_-'
I was let out of the hospital suffering from a scar where I had 78 stitches on my scalp, and I had 12 stiches on my leg where it was sliced gently through several layers of skin on the bottom of the car.
If it weren`t for my neighbor I would have bled to death within seconds.

December 29th, 2004, 10:03 AM
woah...creepy I hit my head on a glass table and I was bleeding but I didn't go to the hospital. too bad my mom doesn't care. one time a shelf fell on me and my mother asked is the stuff okay?

December 29th, 2004, 10:04 AM
Another was when I was 4.I refused to listen to the Pre-School instructer and he picked me up but then,he tripped.My head smacked a wooden playarea,And I took of my hat and it was all bloody!Then I got novicane in my head and it hurt like hell!!!!!Then they stiched up my head.

December 29th, 2004, 10:06 AM
ok.....weird.......I can't believe that happend!

December 29th, 2004, 10:49 PM
This wasn't that long ago lol...

I was going to my friend's house and it was snowing a bit, but in Texas, not only does it snow, but it ices. So I was sitting in the car and we were going over a bridge, and some cars had stopped so a towtruck could tow a car, and the guy in front of us slammed the break and swerved, and almost hit an imcoming car that swerved and almost hit us (a bit of a chain reaction). Luckily the car that almost hit us was good enough to straighten his car out before he hit us, but it was still scary.

And there was this other time when I was like, 5, and I tripped and fell in front of an incoming truck, but luckily the guy hit the brake, and I wasn never run over, lol. But I still had to go to the hospital because I messed up my arm.

December 29th, 2004, 11:32 PM
I was bitten by a dog on half of my face, the right side, when I was like 6, the scars are still there but you can barely see them. I missed kindergarten coz of that.. lolz

January 6th, 2005, 11:18 AM
I have been near death one time when I was at a water park, there was this machine or thing that made waves and they were huge. I almost drowned. But then a life guard saved me.

I've had my brother jump on top of me in a swimming pool and it almost drowned me. He wouldn't let go of me...The irony is that we were only 4 feet deep in the water...

The other time I'd rather not mention. >>;;
