My mother's NDE.
She was in the hospital recovering from a knee replacement surgery. She was an insulin taking diabetic as well. The night nurse somehow managed to give her a double dose of her evening insulin shot. My mom recalled awaking and feeling very shaky (as one does when one's blood sugar dips too low) and very cold. She 'saw' Earth beneath her and she was slowly moving away. She picked up speed and the Earth and light began growing dimmer and dimmer. She was at the point when there would be no light and she realized with a start that she was not finished yet--her boys still needed her and she began what she said was a huge struggle to get back to earth before the dark swallowed her up totally. After what seemed a huge and very long struggle she made it back to her hospital bed, rang the nurse and explained how she was feeling. She recovered. Her NDE was sort of in reverse of the 'follow the light' types. She was following the dark and had to make an effort to get to the light which was her hospital room. She was not, before or after this incident, religious. She was not sure about reincarnation or life after death but figured the most likely thing is that we die and that is it. Both my grandfather (on my mother's side) and her told me that they would contact me if at all possible. So far, dead silence.
