Jane Jackson is the Information and Resource Director for the Brain Injury Association of Georgia and a Certified Brain Injury Specialist. She has worked with BIA of Georgia for the past 7 years and covers the state handling requests from survivors, families and the medical professionals who serve them-among many other "hats" she wears for BIA of Georgia. Working one-on-one with individuals, she provides personalized help, resources and education about brain injury and symptoms. Jane is also the wife of Waring Jackson who sustained a brain injury from a motorcycle accident 14 years ago. He was sent home after 2 weeks in the trauma center and told "if you have a headache take 2 aspirin". He looked ok, he talked ok but inside he knew something was wrong. He was one of the thousands of walking, talking "silent epidemics" you hear about in the news. He masked his changes with humor for 3-4 years before admitting he needed help. Together Jane and Waring discovered his personality change, short term memory, fatigue, depression - among other symptoms - were from his accident. Thus began their long road to rehabilitation and adapting to his "new normal".

Early in my "radio career" (stop laughing!), do you remember when they chopped on my leg? Depending on which time, I sure do. Danged scar tissue from my Brain seemed to cause QUITE a backslide. Or, did it? I refuse to lose, period. Beat me? Well, that happens. Good man (or woman), allow me to offer my hand.
But LOSE?. Because I DIDN'T DIG IN AND GIVE EFFORT? Let's revisit Reid Memorial Hospital and a certain patient, after some leg splittin' surgery - doinig a LIVE! radio show from Room 403B. Oh man, what fun we had! You folks monitored that miracle...Thanks!
I'm LIVE from the Downtown Milton Studio in the midst of vacation because:
1. I want to - it's BIRN Sunday Night (my house)
2. A major network foul up last week
3. I just gotta give personal (and YOU) TBI "Dude" update of the past few weeks!
4. TBI Survivors have aquired a Professional RACE TEAM!
5, TBI Survivors "deserve a better show-time slot than LAST WEEK's foul up! (yes, I pissed me off too)
6. TBI Survivor Pay It Forward - ALWAYS!
And lastly, #7 - as a TBI Survivor, sometimes I get bored too...
And one more thingy - I'd like to open up the Chat Room for folks. Just because I'm taking a break, doesn't mean you have to. And just MAYBE, I'll turn on the phones around 11:30-ish, Eastern Time...

'TMDS' tonight will be hosted by Professional Challenge Coach Deborah Berry. This special BrainInjuryRadio telecast will also see Matt Duffin, sitting on the 'other' side of his desk, as Ms. Berry "interviews the interviewer" as the former BIRN host will straighten Matt's act up with her skillful approach in the often overlooked TBI thoughts of:
"The Secrets Behind Closed Doors" - There is no Taboo...
The secrets we keep locked up behind doors, which have NOT been discussed before on BIRN. Deb digs deep into Matt's untold story and opens some hidden truths about his life, and indeed, Deborah's own life and survival.
Shhhhh!! This is sacred. Hush-hush subjects most people keep quiet, when, in fact, most TBI Survivors have alike situations and thoughts. Want Deborah to answer a Taboo question you have? E-mail her prior to Sunday at Deborah@SurvivorsPayItForward.com. Ask her to share a taboo story you are dying to understand better, or would like to see Matt squirm - have her ask him! You do not have to talk On Air, and you will remain anonymous.
TUNE IN AND HEAR THE LINE UP, as Matt will return to his desk in the later hours. Traumatic Brain Injury = TBI. TBI = To Be Informed. www.deborahberry.com and www.survivorspayitforward.com. Ah, vacation. Reservations again this year at the Milton Hilton, close to the corn waves. For the next few weeks (5-ish) TMDS will offer replays of "The Best of Duffin" (quit laughing). Not going to do nothing, except recover at ease, ride my bike, mow, have a yard sale, play Miracle Baseball, Coach Miracle Baseball, join Racer's for TBI Awareness, go Back-to-BICS-Basics, write, & celebrate my 6th re-birthday!
"Oh the weather outside is delightful;
Inside, I'm froze, and fr-fr-fr-frightful.
And there's really NO PLACE to go.
AC off, AC off - It is COLD!
I met up again with death this week, Raced FOR Time (if not my life), sweated in the yard and ice cycled off dripped off those beads - once back in the charming abode operated by the talented AC system I own. Real talented! And again, I own said equiptment, but the HVAC seems to control me. It feels like Feb inside the studio!
The week - started off sad, ended sad. Wonder if there is a theme there? Months worth of hopes and preparations, goals to achieve. Well, I achieved them, sorta kinda, but the path along the venture took a low road looking up. Why? I never did pull my chin up - even with a future at hand. If so, maybe the smile would of been brighter? Dunno. You tell me. How do you feel with a TBI, when 'stuff' seems at hand, the 'finale' in sight of a driven goal then BOOM. Will make a wondering mind stay focused - on the sad. Death, part of life. Or in our cases, part of life again and again. Stroke you wings, adore them but certainly share them. An Angel did for you...
Race4Time was a great, fun day of racing for those who don't race that often, or ever. The good Doctor, Mr. Kevin Butterfield promises made smiles. I met John Mills, Susan Hancock, and Race4Time Media Champion Ric Dee of our local G-101.3 FM station and, well, lets just say my 'weather reports' from FOX59 in Indy will provide a different "insight".
Let's just talk. No plans, but excitement a goal (and a more 'unfriendly' AC). Deborah Berry sits at my desk next week, filling in as I'm starting my vacation at the Time Clock; 2:00 A.M. sharp!
When interviewing Tiffany Henness, one of our favorite Bloggers - Heavy Medal or @running_hutch as her Twitter Followers would know her. Tiffany told us about, Bia: The first GPS sports watch for women. This great new product is being launched via a Kickstarter project.
Bia: The GPS Sports Watch for Women that Men Want Too was the headline that caught our attention. The his and hers package sealed the deal.
We figured what better way to explore this and support the project than to talk to the people behind it and in this episode The Partnerunning Show we are excited to be talking to Cheryl Kellond who is the CEO and Co-Founder of Bia.
Cheryl tells us all about Bia and her thoughts on topics including:
What is Bia and the Bia Community? Where do people find Bia online? Why a GPS for women? What is Kickstarter? Cheryl the athlete Partnerunning and training with a partner or group We strongly encourage you to support the Bia Project on Kickstarter and in the process get yourself a great new GPS watch and learn about project funding.

Stress Management. That's a thought. Uh, so is owning the private, secluded (but replenished) island the S,S Minnow crashed on, now that Gilligan and crew are done with it. With a better hut, of course. But Stress is so hard to manage. The frustration from stress mounts into an explosion at times, from yelling to screaming to spinning around (I get so dizzy anymore). Lost focus, destruction of plans and its simply not a good 'copinng skill' to have. This is, its called "The 5 R's of Stress Management" by the originator, Brain Injury Coping Skills at RHI Neuro Center, or the Doc Lisa School of TBI & Family Center. Call, join us and share ideas and thoughts or TBI Stress Recognition, Relaxation, Reassuring, Relating and Recovery Do's and Don't. (424) 243-9540. Uh, sometimes an Activating Event through your Beliefs may see your Consequences requiring and solid Defense Attorney, which can be you, once learned to defend againnst your own alarming thoughts.
Race4Time (Race4Time.org) is next Saturday, all in one day now. Whoa, that's a bunch of racing, car showing, draging and 'funning'. Dr. Kevin Butterfield should call in, if done racing in Michigan today, however the lovely Susan Hancock will join us for what updated inforrmation needed. Susan, as I've talked, may be the MOST concenernd if not interested 'civilian' in the brain injury world I've met. But she's race track fast, call, give her information. And surely, Susan is tired of talking to me this week...
Back to basics. I find our TBI-selves "too smart" at times, to directional, to advanced, to authoritive on what we "assume" we know. Uh, in 2008, for several months - I did not even know my name (other than Matt). So, I can only assume, I really didn't, or don't, know much. With as much time I've been spending learning to live again? How could I?
But I have learned an avenue of TBI Recovery, and study TBI Awareness. OK, promote TBI Awareness. Why? From any angle of a brain injury, if you don't at least understand why this world needs awareness, then you must be greatly lost. Help us save the world tonight. Explain just WHAT your TBI is Aware of...
I hope to bring God into the picture tonight as well. Afterall, its Sunday, plus I met a new friend this week. Plus, baseball and racinig IS God's way. TBI Survival? YOU tell me...
Now then, is it August yet? Has anyone seen my vacation? **whistle** "here boy"
(424) 243-9540 and press #1 upon recorded answer. I have a habit of making everyone 'share'; 'hand up' or not...
