Experience description:  

It was not a personal experience but I feel it’s worth sharing. I have not mentioned this to anyone except a couple of people because I feel people won’t believe me. I was a single mother of a beautiful, musically gifted young man for a long time. We were very close as we had no other close relatives in Australia where we lived. Even after I remarried, my son and I remained best friends. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with narcolepsy and depression. Coexistence of the two conditions is rare, I was told and difficult to treat due to completely conflicting treatments

His life was a living hell and we were struggling everyday with medical appointments, hopelessness, despair and sleeplessness. I was emotionally fraught and sleep deprived too with worry and helplessness of watching my beloved son’s distress and being unable to help. Anyway, on the afternoon of 12th November 2013,we had a major row which I have not forgiven myself for since. 20 minutes later my son yelled out from his room downstairs ' mum you were right. I have been very selfish ' I asked him to come upstairs so we could talk and he said that he needed some time to himself. Thinking nothing of it, I said ok sure but I am here whenever you needn’t to talk. That’s the last time I heard from him. We found him 4 hours later in our swimming pool.

However in the time I discovered he was missing and during the time I was rushing from room to room desperately and increasingly concerned- calling out his name, I suddenly heard his voice, very clearly say 'Yes ...' a very tired voice that sounded like he hadn’t been woken from deep sleep., I ran frantically towards the sound .... but there was nothing more. There was no one else at the time at home. I heard his voice coming from his room which overlooked the swimming pool.

Timelines - we had the row at 2:45 pm. At 3 pm my son said his goodbye (though I didn’t know that at the time), 4:30 pm I started to look for him. 8 pm was when we found him in the pool. I heard his voice exactly at 5:15pm, he would haven been technically dead for at least an hour by then
