Life or Death Anonymous 630
Have you ever been in a life or death situation? What happened?
Probably it was very short but still felt like an eternity.Around age 11-12 i was going to a swimming course.At the end of the course teachers would let us have fun,splash,swim or even fight with water around.As i always had a special thing for diving,i was diving and resurfacing between lanes,having fun in my way.And suddenly when i was underwater i felt a fucking sharp pain behing my neck,and lost all my breath,all my movements,everything.I don't open my eyes underwater and it was dark,i couldn't move, breathe or anything for a real long while.Apparently someone jumped into the pool and landed on my neck while i was underwater.It was forbidden to jump into the water all the times but it was end of the day and you know how hard it is to take care of a bunch of 12 year olds.After the pain in my neck i was just there..in the water.Just inside,floating.No idea where i was,no idea if i was short on oxygen or not.Only thing i knew that i was inside the water and couldn't even move my hands.Teachers said they took me immediately out and i was fine after 10-15 seconds.But honestly it felt like an eternity and nothing can explain how scared and weird feeling i was.now i'm afraid to dive in deep places and whenever someone is around.I also have a lot of nightmares with the same feeling/same thing happening over and over again.

>still lose most of my belongings and a shitton of money
>but at least I didn't get shot
In hindsight I wasn't in much danger since the gun wasn't loaded but due to the build-up I had come to expect anything.
I nearly choked on a fucking after eight when I was about 19.
Got the mint filling into the wrong tube. Turns out the shitload of menthol in it is highly irritating on more sensitiven tissue.
Worst part was when I ran to my dad after I realized that I cant breathe anymore (lived at home) and he was just unable to do anything because it was nothing that got stuck but the menthol indicating extreme spasms. Like a bossfight asthma attack.
The only thing I thought was "I'm such a frail doll that I get chocked by pretentious pseudo british sweets, fucking emberassing"
It wore of right before I passed out.
No but if I knew how many I have been in without knowing I probably would have been scared.
during the summer i was eating calamari and i choked on it and started coughing and could barely breathe till some tourist got to do heimlich to me and pretty much saved me(from such silly death lol)
it was a scary thing to go through but while all this happened and everyone in the tavern were alert and terrified,my mind was mostly calm saying "you will be fine,you will swallow it or spit it out.it will be ok".my whole body was in panic but there was a part of my brain which was calm.it was so weird
>>1000>there was a part of my brain which was calm.it was so weird
Adrenaline. It makes things not as bad as they seem, while you body does it's own thing the experience is not the end of the world. If you have this happen once or twice to you, you'll stop being scared, as even the worst things aren't as bad as your imagination. Watching somebody go through something bad is usually worse than actually going through it yourself.
I had a stroke. I'm so scared of dying now. Death is just that. There is nothing after. You die and the world dies with you. I don't want to die.
rofl there is life after death anon
If you're being earnest, I'm jealous of you and wish you the best in life.
That sounds ideal to me. I'd be way more scared of drifting about in nothingness or any of the spiritual spheres.
