    I almost fell off a cliff at Devil's Lake (in Wisconsin, my dog grabbed my arm at the last second, so I could pull myself up... and that hurt, tbh)
    I had pneumonia 6 times (not the greatest way to shrink your lungs)
    I had the nosebleed from h*ll last year, probably lost most of the blood in my body... it just wouldn't stop bleeding... I missed all of science class...
    And last, but not least, I fell off a horse onto concrete when I was way young. Probably why I can't remember a lot of stuff.

    Oh, and yeah, whatever anyone says, do NOT do dangerous bike stunts. And if you do, wear a lucky rabbit's foot and a shirt made of four leaf clovers. I think I learned my lesson... but I don't wanna talk about it

    Oh God yes.
    Scary stuff here and mine's not as bad x)

    But seriously I've felt like that too many times really.
    One I do remember is when we were on like the way to Stourport one night and then we got this small white car infront of us and the driver was well crazy. It seemed as if it was a row between a bloke and his girlfriend seeing what happened when some girl drove past...
    And like, it was one of them roads where you are allowed to go real fast (or at least, everyone does anyway) and this dude drove into a kerb and broke some of it off, skidded into a load of dirt and that went nearly everywhere and he was dodging through the cars at like 100 for the whole road. Fuckin' terrifying to me, man. :/

    I thought Living On A Prayer would be the last song I'd ever hear :tehe:

    And while we're at it, my mom's like alive right now. But she actually died when she had me from the loss of blood. But they like put more blood into her and she's alive ( : and really, that's why she can't exactly remember stuff as easily >_>

    When I was little, I had a bunk bed in my bedroom. I was sitting on the top bunk with my sister, and one of my slippers fell off. I tried to grab it and ended up falling off the bunk.

    If I had landed at a different angle, I would have died.

    It's probably why I get so many colds. :tehe:

    Yeah.

    When I was two a light bulb fell out of the light and knocked me out.
    I was hospitalised for a bit.
    Something simliar happened with a brick wall, a metal teain and George a year later.
    I got fireworks shot at me by drunken chavs. My ex had to carry me out the graveyard because my shoe almost fell off :lmfao
    I jumped down my stairs when I was three and if I'd hve landed slightly differently I'd have broken my neck. Luckily I landed on my shoulder.
    And this guy at the college nearly always runs me over when I'm on my paperround. Every Thursday. I think he thinks it's a game or something.

    If you don't mind my saying, he's probably...uh...not right in the head. If he's trying to run you over.

    When I was born the doctors told my mum they didn't think I was going to live because I was 5 weeks early and wouldn't eat anything, therefore i couldn't gain any weight.
    Thankfully I finally decided to give my mum's boob a chance :tehe:

    Also, I sleep walk alo tand I've never really had a near death experience but once I walked into a wall and broke my nose...

    I dehydrated myself and then I had to go into hospital but I couldn't eat anything so I nearly starved to death.

    I was fine after a while.

    I have almost died twice.

    The first time was when I was in 3rd grade and we had our field trip thing. It was near the beach so after all the crap we did with the tour stuff, my schoolmates and I went over to the beach and played. We were told by the teachers that if we wanted to swim, we could, but not farther than 6-7 ft away from the shore. And we were like, okay, whatever. And then this idiot went past the imaginary borderline we had created to be safe, and then the idiot kid started to drown. I tried to help her, so I swam closer to her struggling body and instead of me pulling her to a much safer area, she pulled me to the deep part where she was currently drowning in! The others called for help when they finally got their brains to function. >_> I think the idiot kid and I struggled to keep ourselves alive for, like, 3 minutes until the teachers came and saved us. My Mom turned into She-Hulk when she found out. :S

    The second time I almost died also occured while I was at the beach with my friends. One of my guy friends grabbed my hand and began to drag me to the realllyyyy deep part of the water. At first, I was okay with it because I actually learned how to swim after the whole almost-dying incident. Also the waves weren't too big and my friend who was holding my hand was a lot taller and a really good swimmer. Anyway, after a few minutes, the waves got bigger so I told him I wanted to go back. I was also really tired from swimming and felt like I couldn't keep that up if I encounter big waves. Being the asshole he is, he grabbed my wrist and held on it really tight. It was like he was enjoying while I screamed. And then suddenly, he let go of my hand I was like begging him to take my hand again. I was so freakin' scared and my brain wasn't functioning properly so I kept on screaming like a fool while the bastard laughed harder. Due to the screaming and moving around, I got so tired and then that was when I started to give up and relax and just let the waves eat me. Anyway, after, I don't know, a few minutes I guess, my other friend finally noticed what was happening (the jerk who took me there thought I was faking everything) and "rescued" me. >_>

    So, basically the first one wasn't my fault and the second one was partially mine.

    Wow. I talk a lot. :P

    I don't think so. But if it happens in premature babies then...probably.

    I nearly drowned once :/

    I got in at the wrong end of the pool at a friends house (I wish I still knew this friend. How rich must they have been?!), and I couldn't swim very well so just started sinking. Then I panicked which made it worse, and I started to swallow loads of water and stuff...

    Luckily, I was saved by my friend :cute:
    ...Once she realised, anyway.

    When I was about five or six, the doctors screwed up my shot dosage somehow and ended up giving me about ten shots of this really strong medicine.
    From what I heard, I supposedly stopped breathing, passed out and almost died. O.o
    All I really remember is waking up and seeing my dad beating the shit out of the male nurse.

    I once went to sleep listening to my CD player with head-phones on and I awoke at, like, three in the morning unable to breathe because I had flipped overnight and the cord had wrapped around my neck.

    I started ripping at the cord, unable to breathe.

    It was waaaaaay scary!!

    And I was once riding my horse and jumping some really tall jumps, about three feet, and my horse flipped over a jump on top of me-

    it was so freaky!

    haha that happened to my friend when we were little. I guess he was going down this huge hill in our neighborhood and he crashed full speed into a mail box, now he also has a scar on his cheek.
    OH! I know. I was trying to be asome and I was rollerblading down the hill on my street, and me being the dumbass I am, was on the wrong side of the road. I saw a car coming and I started to panic and swirved all over the road until I finally crashed into my neighbors mailbox ( :tehe: ) and fell on my ass and I broke my tailbone.
