GO BACK AND BE HAPPY: JULIE PAPIEVIS
GO BACK AND BE HAPPY tells the true story JULIE PAPIEVIS overcoming a car crash - brain stem injury - protracted coma and consequent disabilities to emerge, years later, as a crusader helping others with brain injuries.
While many people suffer traumatic brain-stem injury, very few recover to fully competent adult life. Most never recover physically. But among for who do, there are still mental and spiritual hurdles to deal with, and that is what this book is all about.
I came to this book thinking that I already knew what she had to say - since I had read a news report of her story in a newspaper and I had heard her tell her story at a local public meeting. But the book was full of surprises. All that I had known was the medical details. Indeed, this book is more about her internal life, and I found my eyes tearing several times.
I recommend this book.
Preservation is key. Nov 4, 2005
Like Julie Papievis, i am a brain injury survivor. Although i have not recovered to the extent Julie has, we have many similar barriers we have faced, face, and will face in the future. Before reading Julie's story i could not find another brain injury survivor who recovered from symptoms like mine, and thus, i was giving up hope. However, after reading her book, her determination and resolve gives me hope that my brain and body may recover more than i could ever expect.
Understanding handicaps Jul 26, 2005
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is well written, easy to follow, and makes a powerful point. As one who is handicapped myself, I found Julie's account of her experiences to be painfully honest and easy to relate to. Anyone who wants to understand the physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational challenges of being handicapped would benefit from reading her story.
