    Brain Injury Connection on Recovery Now With Kim Justus

    in Health

    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

    Second Sight, extra sensory perception, and temporal lobe brain injury

    in Education

    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.

    The Art of Brain Injury with Cheryl Green

    in Art

    Let's talk about art!


    Whether you're an artist or not, life with a brain injury takes a ton of creativity. I left my career as a rehabilitation clinician and became an artist after a TBI in 2010. The arts saved me by giving me a community and a way to explain my situation in a way other people could get it.


    Making art can be adapted to any and all disabilities, and there are as many types of art or ways of expression as there are people. How do you use art? Personal expression, therapy, rehabilitation, political statement, or community building?


    Whether you do drawing, photography, music, decorating, writing, sculpting, painting, sewing, movies, graffiti or any type of art, let's chat! You can introduce listeners to your art form and share with us the ways you adapt your art to work for a person living with a brain injury.

    How much do you know about brain injury?

    in Education

    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! 

    Please join me, Michael Idell as the host on Friday Night Brain Injury Radio Network November th, 2014 at 8:00pm-9:30pm Eastern Standard / 5:00pm - 6:30 Pacific
