I'm not American, but perhaps I may have had an NDE already. Quite a few times, maybe. Not sure if it counts, but during times of severe emotional distress I tend to have to fight the overwhelming urge to just let go and die. Especially when I'm in school when it happens, because as much as I wanted to jump, I'm barred by some sort of behavioral contract the school had me sign during my first year when I attempted to jump. I've contemplated dying too much for 2019, and the year is far from over. One afternoon in January I was so emotionally distressed that I just laid on my bed and waited until something happened to me; I even put myself under the covers. Then some things happened and I failed to sleep until 3 AM. My mom had to stay with me. I slept until 5. Then when I woke up I was too sick to go to school, and that's when I started feeling chronic chest pains. Still feel them even as recent as Thursday? Friday? I forgot.
However, that's all in the past. I'm trying to improve myself and make sure everything stays fine. I hope I can sustain things, or else I just might let go one day. I doubt I would, though.
