  • "Mess With MS" with guest TBA

    in Education

      My name is Lisa Dryer and I have been on the Brain Injury Radio Network  a guest and on panel shows as of 2017 for 2 and 1/2 years as a host on "Mess With MS."   When I was a child, I endured learning difficulties and had a seizure disorder. This was caused by a cardiac arrest and lack of oxygen to my brain a premmie. Until I finally realized as an adult, that what I thought was a "learning disability," was actually a brain injury!    I had been struggling with health difficulties for a while.Then a CT scan,showed an abnormal brain reading , I  laughed, saying,“I know I'm abnormal already! Tell me something I don’t know!”     Then, they told me I had MS! MS is one of  the most debilitating neurological diseases. When I discovered that I was diagnosed with it, it changed my life. I only knew to continue approaching life the way I always had: as a survivor! That does not imply that I did not make mistakes along the way - as people do when the road they thought they were taking in their life turns into a new one. Through friendship, family, spirituality, and the many MS role models I had, I began to beat back the monster of this disease.  Their in, I opened up my life to a journey of adventure: Learning things any normal person can do to enhance their lives after MS&brain injury. I hope you will come along with my guests and I on this adventure and find the positive in what seems to be all negative at first!     I choose guests that also live their lives with positivity and will teach YOU great tips and tricks to live a positive beautiful, full life despite your MS or BI or any issue you face today! ?

  • The Free American

    in Education

    I'm NOW seventy one. I look at the time behind me in terms of decades rather than years.  Events occured in such rapid succession that the years blend together. I have faithfully researched, reported and transcribed events, personal encounters and interviews with many men and women who have, through their books and words, made a difference in our world and have helped shape our collective futures in some way. The evidence is here. Intelligent, honest Americans know the corruption I have pointed out in my magazines, websites and radio shows. Hillary Clinton was part of the problems that led to the murder of the 17 little children and their parents in Waco, the reason I helped start the Militias! I saw how the Clinton/Bush crime families have maneuvered and ripped off Americans since they killed Kennedy and Johnson sacrificed over 50 Thousand of my Brothers in Vietnam. That oath I took in 1964 had no expiration date and that is why I supported the Militias.
