I thought maybe Julie would have some insight on how one copes with a world where relationships, love, and communication are poorly articulated (compared to the spirit realm).

My wife wanted to read this book. I got to it first and discovered it was unlike all the other books on the NDE I'd read. Out of 103 pages, she devotes 1½ to the interchange with her deceased grandmothers. One of them tells her to go back and "Be Happy". Nothing in there about how that is accomplished in view of the devastating injury. The entire book chronicles her life from the day of the accident until she is able to run in a race again. There is no question that this process is important to know more about in our society. I spent several years in emotional and financial support of a young man who suffered a SCI who never recovered any movement below his shoulders save his right wrist. He too was a sport enthusiast as Julie. The devastation to one's soul is deep having complete mobility until suddenly the lights go out and the next conscious thing you know you can't move, do your own body house cleaning, and knowing you're a burden financially and in every other way to all your family and local community. Most all the physically crippled people I've associated with never fully recovered emotionally from the devastation even though they were supported in their recovery. If there isn't a good measure of regained mobility arriving at some state of grace is tough. Julie is "One in a Million" to regain such extensive mobility. Most of these SCI people die within a few years afterward anyway of corporeal deterioration. The process is a slow, agonizing death as the victim must awaken to a new day knowing that each day is likely to bring a new physiological problem with its attendant disappointments. The medical costs alone leaves one flattened on fresh pavement.

I was very curious about the injunction to go back and be happy having had my own extensive life review in an unexpected visit to the "other world." I came back struggling with many of the same problems of the NDE people. I thought maybe Julie would have some insight on how one copes with a world where relationships, love, and communication are poorly articulated (compared to the spirit realm). In this I was sadly disappointed, as is now my wife who is only 1/3 through the book. I had hoped to gain some insight into what made her "tick," her drive to recovery both physically and spiritually. All you get to know is she achieved a measure of her lost athletic ability, and found some contentment in service to others of similar struggle. As for her previous career, that is gone. She amazes me with the intensity of her struggle to overcome her new limitations. In this she is a shining beacon and awe inspiring. It is inscrutable, and understanding that is the one thing I either missed or she did not expound.

Good, solid book, about a good solid person and her struggles to overcome the results of a life threatening car accident. I think she had a 3% chance of survival, and much less than that to become a walking, talking, upbeat person. Her sole ambition is to help others who have been injured, plus convey her experience and knowlege with lessons of prevention. The book has all the ingredients of a fall to some of the deepest depths of what life can provide back to a much higher point (in many ways) than before the accident. Good family, good doctors, solid religion, near death experience, coupled with struggles to return to basic human functionality (needs) and eventually the 'wants' that most of us take for granted.

Julie's story is deeply inspirational and her book is well written. I have shared this book with several people who were also encouraged by it.

A feel good story:
This is a good story, showing how one can overcome a bad event. A example of how to tackle all the stages of grief.

This book is the inspiring true story of Julie Papievis. Julie was a successful businesswoman and athlete whose life changed when her car was hit by a teenage running a red light. Julie sustained brain stem injuries that left her with something like a 3% chance to survive, let alone recover to any degree.

When Julie woke up from a coma three weeks after her accident, she wasn't given great odds for much of a recovery. With strength and determination and a lot of faith, Julie has recovered and was able to run a 5k race and then goes on to run a triathlon. Today she is an advocate for others with brain stem injuries, and spends time speaking to groups about her journey and her overwhelming faith.

This book outlines her journey. It is inspiring and motivating and had me in tears many times while reading it. For anyone who has struggled with illness, or watched someone they loved struggle with illness, this book would be so great to read. The book fills you with such hope that you can get through another day, that we all have a purpose for our life. Julie Papievis is nothing short of a miracle. People are not supposed to recover from what she has recovered so fully from. Experience some of the miracle yourself by reading her story. I can guarantee that you won't forget her, and you won't regret the time you spend with her story.

Go Back and Be Happy by Julie Papievis and Margaret McSweeney is the memoirs of Papievis who suffered a traumatic brain stem injury and was not expected to live, but made a miraculous recovery. Papievis was making a simple left turn when a teenager ran a red light and slammed into her. Four weeks later she awoke in a rehabilitation hospital. The last thing she remembered was going to heaven and seeing her grandmothers who told her that her body would be healed, so she needed to "go back and be happy." The injury was so devastating, her family was told not to expect her to survive; her pupils were completely dilated, and she was gasping her last breaths. Her mother and father refused to give up on her getting her physical therapy and praying over her. Papievis went from complete paralyzation on her left side to eventually competing in triathalons. She credits her recovery to faith in God. After suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts, she had to run her body over to Him. It was hard for her to accept the new life in front of her, she wanted to return to her old life of athleticism, hard work, and the hope of having children. Once she surrendered herself to God and started to trust that He only wanted good for her, she started to make major strides toward recovery, including running in races and triathalons today. This is an incredible story of recovery and faith, but the writing isn't as compelling and moving as it could be. I never felt completely engaged by the story nor did I connect with Papievis.
