Worst thing is that the guy who was driving the truck carrying the wood fled the scene.

She has a long road of recovery ahead for her. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

You got it.

When I was 4 or 5, my family and I went to Ocean City, Maryland and we rented an apartment to stay in for the week. It was right on a sort of canal or something. Anyway, one day my mother was sitting out on the balcony (above the water) and I was sitting by her on the floor. And then, somehow, I suddenly slipped through the bars - I can't remember how. But there I was, holding on, dangling...I can still see myself dropping my cup into the water. My mom pulled me up by my long hair.

Another story...this isn't near death but kind of related...I have had problems with depression and social phobia and two years ago, I was seeing a psychologist one day. And in the middle of the session, this faint and soft light kind of blinked above my head...and it wasn't the window because the sun wasn't over at that angle. The psych said "Oh look, something's blinking above you." Maybe someone upstairs was looking out for me.

Thanks everone!

I talked to her today and she's in rough shape but has a very positive outlook which will help her recover.

Her accident has really made me think about my accident a year and a half ago(see my above post). I find it weird how I survived when so many other people would have died in the same situation. It makes me wonder if I have an important purpose on this world and it frustrates me every day not knowing what that purpose is. It's weird that such a blessing(the fact that I'm still alive) could disturb me this much.

I have a reoccurring prophetic dream that I die in a car crash the January before I graduate--that would be this january. I have the intersection and everything. I dream that someone runs a stop sign and rams into the drivers side of my car going like 50 mph. I mames me and I am unrecognizable even to myself. My psychology teacher says that I should avoid the corner in January (WELL DUH!) because it is a self- fulfilling prophecy. I don't believe that because why would it be self-fulfilling to die!? That's my nightly brush with death...

Go lightly down your darkened way.

Not saying that this is something that should be taken literally or not, but I think that what your teacher means by a self-fulfilling prophecy is that you might get so caught up in that thought that it might actually happen because you would be so focused on it.

I can't come up with a good example right now, but you know how "they" say that before a big event, you should visualize yourself succeeding instead of telling yourself that you're not good enough? That sort of thing.
