I know that is a weird question but I had to ask.

I wanted to tell you my story. I've had a horrible week, lost job, ps3 ylod, broken computer keyboard (at home), no other job opportunities. Plus other stuff that is just personal. I blame my stars and planet alignment, I am a scorpio.
You are right. I have been in and out of jobs for the last 3 years. Now I have got one after 6 months and am gonna keep it... I am a scorpio too and the planet alignments makes some sense. Looks like am not alone. Your NDE is interesting and I hope you find a job soon

sounds like your typical beginnings of a obe actually.
I have trouble believing someone died from banging their knee..else I would be dead a hundred times over...shock, obe, that makes sense...but bang knee followed by death is a bit of a stretch.
but keep analysing...and ya, take a snapshot of the knee..if anything, perhaps a armchair doctor can take a look at it and be helpful on how to treat it.

I'm glad you are okay and I do not mean any disrespect with this response so please, just take it as an observation from someone with medical experience vs. a flame.
First, it sounds like you very likely may have ruptured the bursa on your knee cap. Happens usually with sports injuries (I did it myself hitting it on a counter while working in an ER!) Look it up. You could be at risk of infection in the bursa in the skin broke (like mine did) so you'll want to be aware of what to look for.
Secondly. If your gf is a medic...than why in the world would she not call for an ambulance or start CPR if she thought you were dead? You metioned that you had a seizure. Have you had them in the past? If it was a grand-mal seizure than you would not have been breathing during it and very likely would have then had the coloring of someone who is dead. Typically someone who is seizing will then start breathing again after the seizure....this is why multiple seizures is life threating, due to the lack of oxygen.
Again...not to question you, I believe you think that you were dead, but based on what you said I think it is more likely you were in a postictal state, which is what follows a grand mal seizure.
here is some info: postictal state
I can sympathize with a lack of funds and not wanting a medical bill; but really? Your girlfriend thought you were dead but didn't call for help because of money?? Like I always say to people who do not want an ambulance ride due to the cost: You can always arrange payments but dead is dead. Is it really worth the risk?
Again...glad you are okay and seem to have gained a positive experience from this, I just want to encourage people to react appropriately to a life threatening situation. CALL 911 or your local emergency number and start CPR immediately.
