    Set Backs in Brain Injury with Craig, Lori and Tonia

    in Motivation

    Set-Backs of Brain Injury

    Brain injury is a rollercoaster in lifes roads, ups and downs and downs. Each set back can have a huge effect on our emotions our stability and the very essence of who we are. It can question the very fiber of who we are.


    There does not seem to be an easy road just a road with lots of challenges that we must travel. But travel we must and we do not have a choice in the matter. But we are faced with the choice to do or not to do.


    And I think that really only leaves us with the choice to do, not to do is not a good choice so on ward we go through this rollercoaster called life. It is easier together so how to find those willing riders in the journey called life

    Let us travel this road together and find the success wek need to make our lives the best possible

  • The Dark Side of Brain Injury - surviving a decade

    in Non-Profit

    It is 10 years today, that a drunk driver changed my life forever. The decade has seemed like an eternity that has kept my heart in a vise squeezing, squeezing every day. The majority of the people who were in my life are no more, and even though I have been blessed with so many people in my life, life is hard.

    Life is lonely, dark and empty many days, the inability of my brain to process like it should leaving people shaking their heads as well as me. How one day can be good and then the next bad plagued by headaches and inadequacies of the soul for being who I am.

    I have learned more about life in the last 10 than i did the first 30 years. I have learned about people and how they are. I have learned so much about the dark nature of people, more than I ever wanted to learn. But this is the world that I now live in, the world that I must survive, for me it has very much been an apocalypse, but I feel more like the zombie than human.  But this is the world I must find a way to live in, and survivors must learn to live life, be who we are meant to be.  I can’t imagine another 10 years but here we go, love to hear others who live in what seems to be the apocalypse together we will more than survive.

    Another Fork in the Road: Panel - Daily Living, Organization, & Brain Injury

    in Education

    Organization is important in all living, but it become essential with someone living with a brain injury. Survivor, Lisa Dryer, and caregiver, Jeannette Davidson-Mayer, will join me to discuss this topic and share ideas on how they make their lives and those of their families easier through keeping organnized.

    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!

    Deaf Awareness Week—Hearing About A Misunderstood Culture

    in Spirituality

    Deaf, deaf, hard of hearing—these terms all refer to people who have a hearing loss. Many other terms are spoken by people who do not understand the culture of those who do not hear as they do. Instead, they use terms that are more derogatory. On Friday, Sept. 18, noon PT/3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. UK, on Purpose Talk Radio, we will discuss some of the terminology, customs, culture of people who have a hearing loss. This will include the difference between the words deaf, Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing impaired. By being a part of the show, you will go into Deaf Awareness Week with a better understanding so you can help make others more aware.

    Join in the conversation through Skype (after the show begins), calling 347-205-9074, or in the Facebook group Purpose Talk Radio Conversations.
