After a TBI, where Deb Palmer lost consciousness over asphalt, resulting in a subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage, she was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and major depression. She knew she fell and hit her head, that something was wrong, but didn’t know what. She kept thinking it would go away with more sleep. Nobody referred her to any resources for help or support. Doctors obviously weren’t trained on how to address the long-term sequelae of brain injury or how to help someone who has had one. Deb didn’t want what happened to her to happen to others.
Deb decided to turn anger into something constructive; and, with the help of other survivors and some professionals, published five free newsletters to educate about brain injury. The demand for the publication was greater than expected so she decided to form a nonprofit organization. Thus, the Brain Injury Connection (BIC) was born. www.braininjuryconnection.org
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.
Front half of show is a featured guest. to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org & "Like" at www.facebook.com/inaflash.org

Welcome to another episode of Brain Injury Round Table. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of more than 30 years and Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com. At the suggestion of Mr Tai Campbell, of Taken Back Our Communities Now, http://www.tbocn.org, tonight’s show will look into the development of heightened feeling states following brain injury. Some such heightened feelings take the form of disturbances in the autonomic nervous system. The resulting condition is known as “hyper-arousal” and describes the effect of injury on things such as heart rate and respiration. Another aspect of heightened feeling states is sometimes seen as psychic or extra sensory abilities and in many instances is seen as a gift. Others in this category might feel undone by the sudden onset of such strange reveries and might find themselves pre-occupied by feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.
It is seldom addressed by members of the profession called upon to make us whole, to take us from the point of being "patients" to being people again. Therefore, tonight we’re going to take matters into our own hands. We’ll kick it around, swap stories and delve into another of those taboo topics associated with brain injury.
Join us for another exciting and informative episode of Disability Roundtable. thanks to all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, your mobile device wherever you are all around the world. Additionally, I’d like to give a big thank you to this show’s sponsors: Martha Marcum, mother of a brain injury survivor and author of MARTHA'S FABLES and Gordon Johnson, attorney of TBI Law.com. Additionally, we look forward to welcoming another sponsor Mia Marcum McCoy, brain injury survivor and author of a brain injury book that she will speak with us about on a future episode.

When you have a brain injury sometimes our ways of communication can be taken the wrong way. Let's talk about some ways to get your point across.I remember not having much of a filter after my brain aneurysm. So feelings would get hurt or if someone said something to me, my feelings would get hurt. Now, I am getting better at communicating without being rude or insulting. Emotions can run high when you feel that you have lost control. There are moments when everything drives you mad from, people talking, crowds, family, friends, etc. After a brain injury things become confusing and things can get a little difficult when trying to express ourselves. Sometimes the only way for us to communicate is for us to just say what's on our mind.
Suggestions: Find a support group either in your area or online. This helps with connecting with others like you. Remember, this is a process and nothing changes overnight. Be patient and kind to yourself.

THIS WEEK: Bill of Rights for the Brain Injured
The Bill of Rights are Laws created to protect the PEOPLE, not a specific demographic. For more than twenty years, those serving in CONgress (and Politics) have spent their days creating new legislation to manipulate and distort what America’s Founding Fathers established.
But should people with Brain Injuries be allowed to own firearms?
Politicians are currently under the beLIEf that the "stupidity of the American voter is a requirement for these laws to pass". So, for those of us with Brain Injuries, it is paramount that we immerse ourselves into retaining the RIGHTS the Founding Fathers established, if not, WTF? Join the TBI THRIVER TEAM tonight and share your thoughts on this topic, understanding, Together Everyone Achieves Miracles.

THIS WEEK: BRAIN HEALTHY FOODS
I used to "LOVE" Pringles (along w/a plethora of other food products), but it wasn't until after my TBI that I started noticing... things weren't as they seemed.
Over the last six years, I've discovered over 100 'food products' that I once consumed but now don't (and won't) because of what I've learned about them.
Join us tonight at 7pm PDT on www.BrainInjuryRadio.com or call in LIVE @424.243.9540 as we discuss BRAIN HEALTHY FOOD and items that hinder our overall well Being.
Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire. If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)

You don't have to be brain injured to learn about brain injury! Educate yourself and be a better person!
How much do you know about brain injury? Many people talk about traumatic brain injury, strokes, cancer, and tumors but there are more!
How many people know details about the others? Toxemia, M.S., M.D., diffuse axonal, anoxic, autism, etc.
There are a number or neurological impairments that are brain injuries which are never discussed enough or brought to the forefront of conversations.
There are a number of things we, in the brain injury community, need to bring forth to the public, to make the public aware off, and to build educational resources available.
WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND HELP EDUCATE PEOPLE, NOT JUST US SURVIVORS BUT FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, AND LOVED ONES OF THE INJURED.
There are a group of us which are working on making a global resource center online for support, counseling and education but we all must stand together. Please join our show and lets start working together!
