Everything is running smoothly in your life. You may have a job you like or love or maybe you hate it, but still it is a job. After brain injury so many survivors are not able to work. That poses a real problem for paying those bills that come in each month. It is problematic when there is little money to cover the basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter. Having no job often lowers the self esteem of survivors adding to the complications that life has already wreaked on them. Survivor, Cam Compton and survivor, Frank (the Tank) Mackall will join me this show to talk about those challenges and hopefully we can sus out some ideas and suggestions that can help.


Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!
