The Other Side of The Curtain: Recovering from Deep Coma

 An amazing non-fiction story of brain injury and coma survival after an accident!  

After one year of anguish, this Death Wish (Freud) was the consequence of the violence of May 1968 in France. 

“Learning & Growing from PTSD” Dr. Nadia Judith Bijaoui (Part 2).

The other side of the curtain is the space between life and death.

The other side of the curtain is also a quest to understand beyond being a miracle, instead of a fatal statistic. 

The messages are hope, motivation, tenacity, and prevention, at any stage. 

The author transcended her pains into learning, growing, and transmitting, for the ultimate joy.


What Happened?

Nadia loved living in the South of France and studying French literature and poetry, until the deadly political events of May 1968. One year later, at 18, she was pronounced dead after a motorcycle accident. Yet, she entered a three-month coma.

When she woke up, her unexpected survival surprised everyone, except her mother (Annie Boukris) who didn’t leave her side during the three months she was comatose.   

Nadia and her mother engaged in a speedy recovery and lived on as if nothing ever happened.

But there are things in life that one cannot forget.

Years later, after a  couple of  decades of denial, Nadia began a secret search and found seven elements that explained her total recovery. 

Her search took her much further when she wondered: “Why did it happen?”. That took her back to inhibited anxieties (Freud’s Death Wish) and to the violent events of May 1968.


Dr. Nadia Judith Bijaoui’s mission was to transcend her recovery into “Growing & Learning from PTSD” (Part 2 of this book), and to transmit through Bio Health Education (BHE), a health model she created to prevent and to heal.
