I was in a very bad accident about 20 years ago. I was in a motorcycle accident and went headfirst into a railroad track without a helmet. I was pretty messed up for quite a while. I was in a coma for 5 days in the hospital. I had an experience from this that I thought couldn't possibly have happened to anyone else before and after some research it has happened a few times. I felt that in that five days I was in that coma that I had lived my whole life, then woke up. After this I messed up for a long time, on top of that I quit drinking, smoking, drugs and even went vegetarian. But during the first several years after this accident I was experiencing deja vu all the time. I had a condition that they called chronic deja vu. I don't know if it had a more scientific name or not. But everything I did, everywhere I went I knew I did it before. This was every day this was happening to me all day. It was really freaky living like that. I couldn't tell what was going to happen, but everything I did, I knew I already did it. It is now over 20 years later and I still experience times of strong deja vu, but it doesn't affect me like it used to. I am pretty sure that I did not live my whole life during those 5 days while I was in a coma, I do question time all the time and wonder if it was possible. I always wanted to get hypnotized or something to be regressed to that time to see if anything funky happens or if I might have some insight into my future.
