Took The PainIn 1980 I got ripped off the back of a motorcycle, my knee hit a voltswagon fender and I went flying through the air. Well I landed on the road and tumbled for along ways, and needless to say, I didn't break a bone. But I did get whip lash, my right knee swelled real big and I couldn't bend it and I was scraped up pretty good on the left side and shoulder. I didn't go to the hospital cause at the time I didn't think I was hurt very bad.
A lady that lived in a farm house took me in and cleaned me up before the pain set in. God bless her, she did a great job of cleaning me up. By the time I got home that night, my knee was real bad and I was starting to feel the pain.
When I finally went to bed it was about 1 in the morning, and I was so tired all I wanted to do was sleep, but how can you sleep when you can't find a spot that isn't hurt. I was trying to keep my left shoulder off the bed and my right knee up...what a sight I must of been... anyways....all I can remember is wishing I had a sling that would hold me off the bed so I could get some sleep, I was soooo tired... the next thing I knew, I was off the bed in this white sling...the sling had a white glow to it, a white I have never seen before or since. But it didn't hurt my eyes to look at it. I felt so comfortable and I had no pain....and I was not afraid either. I can remember feeling so safe and then falling asleep for a bit...only to wake in the morning when my Mother got up to go to the bathroom....then my body came back to the bed with a slight thud...and the pain was awful.
When my Mother came in to check on me, she had to help me get up because I was so stiff I couldn't move by myself...let alone pick up my head. But I did have a few hours of beautiful sleep. And I know in my heart that it was my guardian angel that picked me up so I could get some sleep.
And I know that there are Angels among us... and like I said.....I have never seen a white like that before and have not seen it since....but I do hope to see it again one day.
Thank you for letting me write my story... Linda =)
