I Experienced Ten Minutes of Death

  1. geez…. i tried to leave a comment but no, technology had different plans.

    i was actually in the same room when you collapsed. even now, the memory is EXTREMELY vivid and i still remember the feeling of fear and helplessness and those feeling being made worse by not knowing if you were ok or if you’d be ok at all. i’m really relieved to know you’re ok and most importantly, alive!!

    i’m a grad student at gally and i would love to sit down with you and pick your brain re. being deaf, being mentally ill, issues re. been a deaf RC, and etc etc. i see you as someone who knows what it’s like to be on the fringes… it just happens that the nature of my mental illness is a lot more tidy/appealing/socially acceptable.

    and i’ll tell you a secret- i’ve been reading your blog off and on for a long while… just never bothered to say anything. and to be able to connect an anonymous blog with a person… small world trubiz!

    1. Hi Carrie,

      Thank you for leaving a comment. I do remember you! First of all, I’m sorry that you had to witness what happened that day. I still have flash backs about that–keep wondering. When I was in ICU, it has hit me hard then stayed in hospital for more than week was mind-boggling.

      I remember seeing you in the room–thanks for being open-minded about what RCs are all about. It’s not often that people would be willing to take their own time and learn what they’re all about.

      I do not know if you knew that I was a community liaison and lecturer for HEARD (Helping Educate to Advance the Rights of the Deaf) for two years, and that helped me heal my wounds. Currently, I am a founder and lecturer for my organization, Deaf Access Justice, a 100% Deaf-centered organization.

      Ah, thank you for reading my blogs! Writing is my therapy. I appreciate your time doing this.
