People have heard about brain injury but they really don't think about until it happens to them, which at that point it is all they or anyone they know can talk about. It is a sinister injury that can change everything in a blink of an eye, and as it goes on misunderstood the dark side of a person a new person starts to emerge, spouses suddenly in a relationship with a stranger, even the survivor does not know themselves. Lost alone and frightened learn about it before it’s too late, before it can take you or a loved one’s life away forever, the more you know the better you will be. You are not along there are millions of us among you. We represent over 70% of those in prison and even more of the homeless. Together we can stop the devastating effects of this sinister injury that can last a life time. One that is big business over 75 billion a year, where the rich control the destiny of the lost for a buck. Let us make a world where we are accepted not jailed or isolated, empowered not controlled. One where we embrace this new person to be a better, braver, strong more creative and productive part of society.

My guest February 25, 2017, is David Lyons. David has recently started a book tour for his recent book on multiple sclerosis, "Everyday Health and Fitness With MS," https://www.quartoknows.com/books/9781592337415/Everyday-Health-and-Fitness-with-Multiple-Sclerosis.html and is working on the http://www.msfitnesschallenge.com/ and at http://www.optimalbodypf.com/ He is on a mission to teach people with MS why exercise will only help you in your disease. I am so very pleased that he is able to come on the show with us and share his knowledge and his story. It is going to prove to be an amazing show. Don't miss out! My name is Lisa Dryer and I have been on the Brain Injury Radio Network as a guest and as a host for two years now. When I was a child, I endured learning difficulties and had a seizure disorder. This was caused by the cardiac arrest and the lack of oxygen to my brain as a premature infant in the Neonatal Care Unit. Until I was an adult, I finally realized that what I thought was a "learning disability" was actually a brain injury. I had been struggling with awkward health difficulties for a while.Then I had a CT scan, where I laughed when it showed an abnormal brain reading and said?I know I am abnormal already! Tell me something I don't know!? Then, they told me I had M.S. It is one of the most serious health complications there are! But... From my first interview on Brain Injury Talk Radio, I have said that my outlook was, "the Find the beautiful around you and stay calm.? That kind of outlook is where my idea for the grassroots #MSbeautiful came from. It is how I find my guests to this day! I look for people with positive stories who have something to share with the world despite and because of their MS! We are heroes anyways! We have MS -- it doesn't have us!
