I was in an accident in jamaica where I was pulled out of the vehicle with no heartbeat. I was brought back and since have been told by not just family and friends but different people that I am different. Is there any studies or cases of near death experiences causes personality change? Is this possible?

I was just watchin a video on depression and other mental problems in my psych class today and yes trauma such as that I believe can cause personality changes. Best bet would to talk to a doctor then they would probably send you somewhere that can help you

althought I dont know what ur personality chanegs were, I am pretty sure trauma such as that can cause changes
