Please join me in welcoming Dr. Ana Durand, Professor and clinical practitioner at Indiana University Medical School. Her current research is on motor functioning after injury to the brain. This will be a very informative show that you will not want to miss!
You learn in school and are fixed in your habits and thoughts but is that the end of wiring your brain? Is there a set age where the brain starts to decline regardless of anything else going on in your life? Do you have control over your body or do you give up when things start to falter?
Brant Cortright, Ph.D., author of The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle will be sharing a proactive plan to keep your brain and body functioning at optimum levels. Brant explores the body, mind and spirit connections that are intertwined in our life. When something is out of balance, the system starts to decline or suffer unless you notice and take action. Is aging the 'reason' for your decining brain health?

It’s been well known for years that brain function and mental clarity diminish as we age. But recent research shows that this decrease may set in much earlier than originally expected. A recent 7 year study by Neurobiology of Aging found an urgent need for a way to preserve brain function and capacity well into one’s mid and late life stages.
And it's not just an aging issue either. People of all ages are suffering more and more from fatigue or “brain fog” during the course of any given day.
So what do we do?

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

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.

Any type of abnormal brain function is a brain injury. PTSD, multiple sclerosis, hydrocephalus, strokes, tumors, anoxia, neuromuscular disorders such as transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome or related neurologic conditions are all types of brain injuries of different kinds, along with traumatic brain injuries.
We need to educate the public, doctors, familes and survivors what these disabilites are. They are often misinterpreted and misdiagnosed because individuals are judged upon instead of understanding.
We need to educate survivors how to accept who they are now.
We need to motivate survivors, caregivers and family members to not give up and how we can all progress.
Please join our calls online and by phone.

No one would ever know, how sometimes seemingly small things can set into motion a emotional catastrophic series of events. How we can be emotionally and mentally destabilized in a flash!!
Tonight 3 survivors will share their emotional and physical experiences with you. For name sake we will call this series of Straight OUTTA BRAIN INJURY -
"Stung, Warped & Fried"
We hope you will call in and share your experiences of to much, times where you felt mentally or emotionally in a freefall. we get it. As well we realize with management we can somewhat have control over these freefalls.
Our challenge is to have as few of these as we can, to recognize how to minimize them. Together we can learn to have a life far greater than we can imagine, so let us imagine this life together
"DREAM BIG, LIVE LARGE"
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!

The Dark Side of Brain Injury
Hosted by: Craig Sicilia
Brain Injury has created new opportunities and a new conciseness that I could have never imagined. It brought a different kind of hope and salvation. As good a person as I might have been before my brain injury I don’t think the gates of heaven would have been open to me, and even now I have things that need to be let go.
All of these major changes came with a cost, a huge cost that as well I could not imagine. To lose all that I was in such a rapid destruction of who I was. Lost my marriage, friends, job, home and myself. It shock my faith and challenged everything I once believed to be fact, or at least my fact.
And now to live a life as this new person, on what seems to be a personally lonely road, though I am incredible social I find myself very much alone at times I wish I wasn’t. I find my opinions and goals in conflict with many. But at the same time I believe I have learned to see the value in everyone. Even though I am learning not everyone can play in the sandbox or should play in it.
This show will explore some of those dark lonely times, those times for the good of this cause I would spend in solitude never allowing myself to get to close to someone. The price and the rewards, the pain and the joy. I know many have similar stories to share I invite you on to share your dark times and more importantly the tools to move beyond those dark times.
