Witness the Drama and Recovery from a Traumatic Accident New Book tells the story of a young man struggling to recover from a near-death experience

Recovering from any injury is never an easy goal, but for Joey in “Be that as it May” experiencing TBI (other wise known as Traumatic Brain Injury by the medical profession) was one of the toughest things a person can go through. Looking normal and trying to portray yourself/himself as such, can and is a bit much. Joey understands that everybody has their challenges and the events we experience in our lives makes us who we are. If nothing ever happens, it’s like living in a closet.

The story that the book is about was inspired by events that happened during the author’s life, after the injury. It begins when a terrible accident changes the direction of life and ravages Joey, a struggling young man who is on his way to being one of New York City’s Bravest in only four days is the physical examination for the department that he has spent months preparing for. He played sports most of his life and this was just another goal that he had to achieve, and give him a future. Brought up in a family of cops and firemen, you could say it’s in his blood. He knew what he had to do to achieve his goal and being physically fit was the main thing. The injury that changed everything, in a matter of looking at it, changed everything. This book can be looked at in many ways. Whichever one you choose is your opinion and is all I can do is hope that the inspiration is intertwined with appreciation. Because of this event, it has changed not only Joey’s perception but his acceptance. If you can’t change it, don’t worry about it. The key to longevity.

Be That As It May emphasizes that trauma is a double edged sword, not only accidents cause but also the ramifications of any injuries sustained in them. The effects are not only physical. Physical also effects psychological. In a matter of looking at things you notice that physical pain effect psychological reasoning. After all, why do you think physical torture works so well?
