i had a similar experience. i was treating varicose viens at a hospital. the nurses stuck several needles in me at once. I usually faint with only one injection, but this time was very differant. I fainted for two minutes. The nurses said that that was the longest two minutes the had experienced. Apparently i stopped breathing, and had a seisure. On the inside where i was, it was total peace. I saw a light, a circle, and it was getting closer, and closer. I almost went through,then i woke up in a sitting position with the nurses slapping me telling me to wake up. I swear i was experiencing near death. It was so peaceful, I cant explain. Yet on the outside, the nurses were trying to revieve me, I didnt feel a thing when I was out.I can say that right befor I fainted I was lying on my belly, getting ready for the nurses to inject me,I had an awful headach. This was my blood leaving my head, it feels awful! I remember talking to the nurses about my children, then the next thing I had was this awful headache. I was rubbing my temples, trying to stay coherant, then I was out. I saw the light, then woke up in the upright position with the nurses trying to wake me up.
