"Trauma Redefined" was never written with the intention of traumatizing the reader in any way. It is simply a narration of a chain of unfortunate, sometimes seemingly bizarre events. But however impossible they may seem, the happenings contained in this book, from the out-of-body experiences to the hallucinations have been entirely and accurately documented, without the addition of the slightest falsehood. I hope it also serves as a warning: this can happen to anyone, and not everyone might be as lucky as I was to live to tell the tale. A split second is all it takes for fate to challenge you to a game of life and death.
