I can remember being in the shower, washing my very long hair. It was one of those old-fashioned showers with a heavy plate-glass door and a stainless steel handle that you had to turn to get in and get out. There were 4 water jets…three coming from the side wall…and a shower head in the ceiling.

All of a sudden, it felt like my blood was rushing out of my toes. As all of my energy drained out of me, I thought:“I’m going to drown.” Then, as I fought with the locked door handle to get out, I realized:“I’m going to die.”

With one last push, I managed to turn the handle, before I went down. And thankfully, my head landed on the floor,outsideof the shower.

I was terrified.
