  1. Yes. I was trying to make a run through a hydroelectric rock formation on the New River and I got stuck under water. It seemed like an eternity before a buddy got me pushed through. If I’d have been alone, not sure it would’ve ended well for me that day. And, it’s one I’ll never forget.


  2. I was the victim of a strong-arm robbery at age 18……..fellow pulled a gun on me when I failed to comply quickly enough opening a cash register..he was shaking badly and his finger was on the trigger. he shot the gun, thank goodness he was shaking as the bullet came nowhere near me. But yes, I knew I was about to die. I dropped to the floor……i guess he thought he really had shot me and he took off.and was caught a block away.


  3. Yes. One evening at midnight, in the dead of winter, after leaving my job, I skidded on some black ice and my car began a descent down a steep slope which ended in a deep pond. It was pitch black and fortunately the car stalled in the snow, near but not in the water. I thought I would drop dead of the shock and adrenaline overload, but I didn’t. I was 23, which might account for my survival. I climbed out of the pit and found a near by phone and called for a tow to get the car out. Most frightening damned thing I’ve ever gone through I think.


  4. Maybe it’s an anxiety thing, but I have feared for my life one too many times to count.
    Just to name a few, on a boat during a water spout that appeared out of nowhere, without warning. Someone tried to rob me at the train station, but because I was in unfamiliar territory, I had the snap undone on my pepper spray and sprayed this guy like crazy, then ran for it. Living in the homeless shelter certainly was very fearful to me. All these strangers on drugs or severe mental issues always stirring up trouble. I rarely ever came out of my room for two years. Then yesterday adventure with the car accident at the supermarket. My roommate’s car just missed being hit by 3/4 of an inch. Then this lunatic got out of his car hitting not only his car but the older gentleman’s car, then when he got up in my face screaming and fingers pointed in my face, I freaked.
    Gee, can’t understand why I’m an introvert and don’t want to poeple anymore.


  5. Just over two weeks ago I had my husband drive me to the hospital ER at midnight. I was in serious stomach pain and vomiting and my arms and legs were going numb. I was taken in almost immediately and they took blood. About 20 minutes later the nurse came in and told me I was being moved to the critical care area because , as she said , I was “very sick”! I was taken to the critical section of the ER and put on a monitor. I was in serious pain, and now I was shaking all over and freezing cold. They hooked me up to an IV and gave me a pain killer. When I saw on the monitor how high blood pressure was I thought that this could be it. Maybe I wasn’t going to make it. That was when I told my husband what I wanted to be done with my horse after I died. But I got through it and I’m still here.
