Writer's Block: Don't fear the reaper  
Have you ever had a near-death experience? How close have you come to dying?

When I was five years old on my way home from school with my two uncles and my two sisters I ran around a digger on the side of the road near where I live and got knocked over by a a speeding van.

The guy in the van was speeding to get to the hospital to see his new born.

I was in a coma for ten days and was read the last rites and my family were told to prepare themselves for the worst.

I was brain damaged and had to relearn alot when I came out of the coma,I didn't know who my brother was at all,so they tell me.

I don't remember anything about the day it happened or most of the stuff I was told about my life before that.

All i can say is Wow!!! Do you still have problems with anything.

I have heard that people who have traumatic accidents don't usually remember it happening.

Im a slow learner and thankfully thats all,I got alot of help with special teachers at school.

Im an epileptic but no one knows if its accident related since I didn't have my first fit until I was 21.

oh wow...this is serious. what happened to the driver, was he punished?

when I was a little I had pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital and stayed several days in the ICU, I was also hit by a car but nothing serious.

*hugs you real tight*

There was a court but I don't remember anything about it and no one likes talking about it so I never really asked,as far im aware it was put down to an accident,which I honestly believe it was and bare no grudge against the driver at all.
Huge hugs
