Death is still a very mysterious concept to human beings and hence it is but obvious that it creeps out people when people say random things before dying. These Reddit users had some experiences that have made a mark on their minds. Read on.
Near death experiences and meeting people in dreams are soemthing that have left mankind puzzled for centuries and ironically no matter how hard we tried, we have failed to find answers to these. Here are a few stories shared by redittors where they were left spellbound by a person's 'last words'.
“I’m a nurse and was previously working at an assisted living community on the dementia/Alzheimer’s unit.
My very favorite patient had been declining pretty steadily so I was checking on him very frequently. We would have long chats and joke around with each other, but in the last two weeks of his life, he stopped talking completely and didn’t really acknowledge conversation directed at him at all.
I finished my medication rounds for the evening and went to see him before I left. I told him I was leaving for the night and that I’d see him the following day, and he looked me in the eyes and smiled SO genuinely and said, ‘You look like an angel.’ I thought it was so sweet because he had not seemed lucid in weeks.
He died the next morning. It really messed with me.”
“‘But I don’t know how to get there…’ Grandpa in hospice. Hadn’t spoken in days. Died about two hours later.”
“17 y/o female during a car crash: ‘Please, please, please…don’t tell my parents I was drinking."
“A nice old lady who told my CNA she wanted to wear all white. When asked why, she said ‘the man in black is here.’ She looked in the corner of the room. The CNA looked, but there was no one there.
That’s when I came into the room. We asked her to describe what she was seeing and she said ‘he’s in all black, and he’s got a top hat on.’
Then she whispered ‘and his eyes are red’ while her eyes moved across the room to directly behind the CNA, like she was watching him move closer to us. She died later that night. But it was unexpected. That room creeped me out for a long time after that.”
“My mom was watching over my great-grandfather in the hospital. He’d been unresponsive for a day or so, when suddenly he said: ‘It’s about damn time you got here! I’ve been waiting!’ And then he died.”
“‘The devil has been in my room all night, but don’t worry, God is with you.’ This man had like the worst death ever too. He had a horrendous seizure and died with his eyes wide open and had a horrible grimace on his face. He had also been yelling all night about the ‘devil’ and saying over and over, ‘Get out of here! This building’s gonna blow!’”
‘Get off me you bastard, you’re trying to kill me.’ A 60-odd year old woman in a lot of pain from a rupturing abdominal aortic aneurysm. She was too sick to survive major surgery, I was trying to ease the pain of her passing with morphine.”
“Not a doctor but I overheard an old lady whisper this to her old husband dying of kidney problems. ‘You are going to beat this, you got away with murder, this is nothing.’”
Which one creeped you out the most?
