If you need some hope

Postby tiktok » December 31st 2017, 5:44pm

In 2007 I died four times in an induced coma from March through June. I have very clean memories of crossing over and it's no bs. It took me three years to come close to recovery, still lots of residual issues all manageable. What I did learn is that doctors and hospitals will callously lie to protect their track record. They can cook their books and do it daily. I try to stay on the positive, I went from this:

To this, slowly and surely and am thrilled to celebrate 2018.

Due to the outcome of litigation I cannot discuss this illness, but I can wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Glad you made it back. It's posts like this that reminds one that 99.99% of the daily stuff we deal with is just little stuff. Happy New Year.

Crossing over is mind boggling. It was not a religious experience, per se. A lot of it was related to physical, medical situations that were actually occurring at the time. For example one time I was asked to hold a giant post during constructing of a garage. Suddenly I slipped back and a nail on a post went straight into my back. I'm guessing it was a nerve blockage going into my back.

Anyway, one time I was pressed into a block of cement that along with other mind bogglers. I.lost my train of thought, G-d bless us all.

Practically speechless. Huge congrats on conquering that illness, and whatever residual effects it may have on you are resolved completely.

As I write these words the missus and I got a shock today: One of her best female friends died a couple of days back. What made matters worse is that we couldn't attend the funeral as we didn't find out about the death until someone had posted about it on Facebook - and the phone number the couple had was our old one (the husband didn't think to check the wife's cell phone, and it's understandable given what his family was going through. He had tried to call us on our old number). The deceased was a proud woman who didn't let her friends know she was sick, with the same disease that took other members of her family. Cancer has claimed another person in my life.

Yeah, we all could use some hope. Tok, your letting us know all this, well, it's like a lift when I needed to read something positive. Thanks, man.
