My mother became very ill, she had been in and out of the hospital for a couple of years. At one point she was on life support for 15 days caused by an overdose from an anesthesiologist while in surgery. My mother was a very strong woman who did recover. I never knew exactly caused her death. She passed away in 2009 & on her death certificate they listed several complications.
Before my mother passed away I had never experienced anything like this.
In 2013 my rottweiler Roscoe was very sick & we had decided to have him put down the next day. I was laying on the floor with Roscoe trying to comfort him as he couldn't quit moving his head from side to side. I began crying when I felt a hand stroke my hair back from my face. I looked behind me expecting to see my husband but he wasn't there. He was upstairs sleeping.
In 2014 I was going through a terrible conflict with my business partner. I needed to confront my partner about leaving the business & his thievery. Confrontation is very hard for me & I try to avoid it if at all possible. I was so upset my stomach ached. I was laying in bed thinking the only way out was to take my own life. I had my arm out stretched across the bed when a hand picked mine up & held it. Again I was alone my husband was downstairs.
I really believe my mother is trying to comfort me when I am at my lowest.
I haven't told anyone other than my husband & my son about my experiences as I didn't want people to think I was making them up or I was crazy. There are several other similar stories on this site so I know I am not alone & it is possible.
I would like to thank everyone for sharing their stories.
