    Please bare with me, I need some advice :)
    On Monday afternoon March the 27th, my neighbors’ 14 month old child drowned in the swimming pool. I sadly couldn’t help the child by administering CPR as it was too late. It was a heartbreaking incident.

    The next afternoon, I was scheduled to go for a routine operation procedure to remove 4 of my wisdom teeth and have the jaw bone shaved down. All went okay, I was also fine in recovery, until they wheeled me back into the hospital ward. (I obv don’t remember what happened next but I was told by the ER Doctor and nurses that I had my lungs fill with my own blood which caused me to suffocate and eventually my heart stopped. The on hand nurse managed to press the emergency button and it took 2 ER Doctors & 8 nurses to resuscitate me. I was brought back after a period of 20 min.

    After going through these traumatic events, I feel as though I should have a new found sense of gratitude for life. However, I am plagued with a deep feeling of loneliness and despair :(

    If you were in my shoes, would your outlook on life be changed?

    • @ariella9511 I think I wouldn’t be surprised to be in the same mood, you have been through a lot and while indeed there’s some gratitude somewhere in the future to be celebrated, that trauma has to be processed first, so don’t ask yourself too much. I hope with times you feel better and for you to talk with somebody about how you feel. :/

    • As someone whom had times where I nearly died once because of my own self and twice because of harm from a guy, I know exactly how you feel. I battled my whole entire life fighting to want to just live and do anything that I feel is best at that moment. I wanted to love, laugh, etc and was very disappointed that life didn’t live up to my expectations. Movies and books make it seem like when you go through traumatic things that you’re all of sudden going to be place with happy opportunities. Truth of the matter, you change and you will keep changing. Never will you be the same. That could be a good thing in time which I am truly hoping for you. It’s not your fault that you feel this way. You are a human! Feel free to message me if you ever feel like talking
