Plenty of times and here is a list:

Had what I thought was a heart attack at 15, painful as hell... basically felt like someone had stabbed me in the heart.

Nearly been ran over by stupid drivers plenty of times because there not paying attention properly in a public car park (my job involves working a car park)... Let's just say, it's enough to piss me off to the point I'd rip em out of there cars and give em a good beating/jack em and smash there car.

Probably related to my depression and other issues:

Puked up what appeared to be black blood but tasted like iron, not long after that... actually felt faint and almost blacked out.

Woke up once feeling like I couldn't breath at all, started to panic and thought I was going to actually die... Moments later started to cough and could breath but just barely.

No time for that. My brain instinctively does everything in its power to avoid death.

Back when I was hanging with the wrong crowd in middleschool, I was involved in a incident where I was in the targeting field of a couple seriously pissed off gang members (one of my friends had beat up their sister..).

How it happened, we, me my friend and 2 of his homies were just walking from the carnival, it was about..maybe 11 or so at night. A car was creeping up behind us, then it sped up and passed us, hit a very hard U-turn on the next street, then came back around to trail us. By then my WTF-Senses were going off, and i felt weird. The presence of death is a strange one you know? Its like, you have that feeling in your gut something's bad about to go down, you understand it but its all so foreign at the same time. I asked my friend if he noticed how weird that car was acting. He was saying it was a unmarked police car and to not really trip. thats when i heard the car driving over some gravel behind us, and a door slam. The last thing I heard was "ITS OMAR" Then the bullets started whizzing by, hitting trees houses cars everything.
Ive never ran so fast in my fucking life. I was in pure instinct survival mode. I jumped a fence without using hands, but i slipped on some grass and fucked my knee up bad but i still kept moving. After the adrenaline wore off, my chest felt like it was going to explode from the huge amounts of breathes i was taking, my body was having violent spasms and everything, i guess thats the power of adrenaline i pushed myself to the limit to survive, the human body is pretty amazing.

I'll never forget that day, my friend and his associates sadly did not live to see today. All three had been gunned down over a petty disagreement, terrible. But Life goes on. My hoody, that I wore that day, I still have it. It has several holes where bullets passed through, including one in the underarm area, that probably would've taken my heart out. Thank god I had a small frame and was skinny back then.

AS for what I was thinking during all that, it was like a blur, but i remember wondering if i had told my mother/father that I loved them.

While driving about 75 mph on the freeway, I tried to speed up and get around the guy in front of me. I had looked in the mirrors and behind me but hadn't seen anyone. When I started moving over, I caught the glimpse of a car out of the corner of my eye, so I hit the brakes and swerved back into the lane. The wheel locked up and after a big swerve sent me heading toward the center divide. I hit it at about a 60 degree angle still moving about 70 or so. As I realized I was going to die when I hit the divide, I thought "I'm dead". That was actually all I thought. Fortunetely, the car hit in just the right way. Not only did I not feel too much of an impact (bags didn't even inflate), but the car wasn't too horribly damaged. It looked like it just scratched the bumper up and pushed it in. Though, there was some frame damage to it. I was able to back up and continue on, much more shaky and cautious, of course.

Umm, if that happened, you probably did puke up blood. Blood tastes like iron.

I know the feeling!

As for me:


And no, I wish I was clever enough,and witty enough to make this a joke and be funny. I'm completely serious. I hate dark and creepy basements that are like dungeons. And especially the ones with the gaping staircases. I used to run for my life!!!!!

I remember driving when it just started raining and I sped out of control like I did last time I drove in the rain and fantailed across the street.
It felt very peaceful...like a huge burden off my shoulders was lifting...and as I spiraled almost to the cliff...my arms moved to position themselves almost instictively hitting the gaurdrail...a huge feeling of dissapointment in how I felt came over me...
But for all those who have suicidal thoughts on a regular basis..
Its just something that comes normal that you have to deal with.
When a car almsot hits you or when you slip off a tall ledge...
Or you hear a gunshot from the garage because your dad is mad at everyone...
Like right before that voice in the back of your head says..."wake up!"
or when your getting mugged at gunpoint by some guyz out of a car because your walking around town at 0400 in the morning...and when they ask for your money you only hage a dallor and realize it probably wont be enough...
Its very calming...or maybe thats just me...

yep, once when i almost drowned... another in a very bad accident that psychologically scarred one of the girls...

i think about it quite often now ever since i've had my bike... every time i get caught in heavy rain, every time some douche tries to beat the yellow light at an intersection, a few times the fog's been so heavy my visibility's limited to 30 feet or so...

i was scared the first two times, but now the one thing that crosses my mind is whether or not my girlfriend will be okay financially... we've still got another 25 years on the mortgage...

well, that, and whether or not it was my fault... if i'm going to die on my bike, it'd better be something out of my control and not because of me...

While I have had some killer panic attacks in my life due to anxiety, I have never really felt the actual fear of death. I kind of dread the end since I don't believe in an afterlife, but otherwise, don't much think on it. However, there was a hindsight fear I had. Back when I was in middle school, which I believe was when Clinton was in office, a friend and I were hanging around in a slight bit of wilderness area near my town. We were just hanging out doing much of nothing until I happen to see a frog. I say that we should catch it, and we both run over to get it.

Well, his skinny butt runs over a bunch of mud with no problem. I on the other hand, sink like a stone. It was almost like quicksand as I just sink, and it comes up to about my lower chest/upper stomach. I eventually crawled out with a little help from my friend and the luck of sturdy ground being nearby. It wasn't actually until about last year though, that I realized how bad that could have been. If the mud hole had been just a bit deeper or I shorter (I was tall for my age), then I could have drown in mud without any chance for help to reach me in time. Kinda sent a shiver up my spine when I thought about it.

That is terrifying just hearing about it. I remember watching a video as a kid about how you can die in quicksand and I've become terrified of it. My sister has a friend who's boyfriend died in a lake. The water wasn't even too deep, but trying to get out of quicksand and water was too much, so he wound up drowning in the water. The real sad part is that his family were all right there and could do nothing about it.

I'm glad that your story turned out good. And maybe it's good you didn't realize at the time, because you could have panicked and made in worse.

I tried to do a somorsault once, with no prior training what so ever... I landed on my head, and I thought I broke my neck >.< Luckily, I got away with just a little bit of damage to the brain.
