Happy Birthday to us, happy birthday to us, Oh happy birthday day to us. Can you believe it it has been 6 years this is episode # 1958 the year my dad was born. Not such a good year for me, or my mom I think. You see all that past crap seem so long ago, I haven’t talked to my dad since the year of my injury and my mom a few years longer than that. Messes with one’s head, not even sure if my mom or dad are even alive, and I am pretty sure if they are the same holds true for them. I don’t remember much about them a little about my dad except meeting him at around 14 to be exploited for years and none really about my mom except she’s a drunk or was or whatever.
Ok I got one for you what do you get from a messed up individual who was put into foster homes from a baby, then finally gets in to his grandmas home who loved him to shortly after be exploited by his father for hopes of a parent and peace and after years comes to grips with all of that and finally finds some inner peace and hope then sustains a brain injury to lose all since of reality.
That’s how brain injury radio was born from a person so lost, so scared, who started over with no one again. Everything he loved fell apart because that mix was too much for his finally found family to handle.
That’s why and where this show comes from, the deepest loss, the hardest of journeys, and through talking about it and leaning about it, it has help me an many others survive another day. To find some peace inside that this universe has some sort of purpose.
And my fellow survivors have been and are the purpose of life to this point. I have learned more form the audience than I could have ever learned in the medical field. You have kept me purposeful. Let’s share what peer support means to you and I hope hosts present and past share tonight too.
