Hosted By Craig Sicilia
Our regualary scheduled show will not be heard tonight or any other night that is tonight.
So now its who evers chance to talk about what ever it will be first come first serve, it is a test of the emergency broadcasts of brain injury radio network, like you care - what ever
so tonight we will talk about the show being full yeah, we will talk about other things but you will never know unless you watch or at least listen- we will have guests but who knows who it is going to be a really really big show folks
It's been about a year since the organization grew, it grew so much it consumed me in every way, more groups than possible, more out reach hoping that everyone would be able to find a voice or ear. I had this weird vision that their could be a great unity of survivors, I saw this great potential for survivors. As we grew I disapeared, it happened so quick their was so much need. But for the need and the good there would be like dragons people who only destroyed and went after people, it fed them some how, then there is the political areana their as out of control as survivors that;s its own part of us, there is big money in brain injury..
I am really looking forward to camp, after camp i have to put things in perspective, i have litterally let everything go in this quest a quest that many don't want one that maybe i am tired of fighting, i have not really had contact with reality for a year I have been so busy, busy putting into place my life now, three priorities 1. get out of the poverty bracket 2. Do things for me 3. follow the path that will be infront of me.
I know the universe has some warped thing in store for me, now its time to explore that, finding that place where what i have to offer will make me a living. Building my new life one that fulfills my dreams and my childerns. What that is I don't know but i know it's coming now, believing in me, i just need to keep my mind open because it might not even be in this field what i do know dont offer enough value to sustain my family so that tells me something, tonight explore do we expire or what
Prison of the mind
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
We humans live a life that is part reality but imagination, what are minds tell us it is, so it is no surprise after a abi/tbi as we try to rehabilitate toward what society says is typical, when we fall short of these measurements set for us we start using these as bricks and mortar building the ultimate prison in our minds. A prison so dark and vast that we easily get lost inside these self-built walls. Trying to find a way around, over and under only to find it unescapable. Were too busy building our why’s and how comes. When we should be thinking why not. We need to change doubt into believe focusing on what we have and can do rather than what we don’t have and cannot do. When we can move beyond the prisons of our mind we can turn cannot do’s into done’s.
Our Minds our powerful processors waiting for information and what we believe becomes the software that determine how we process and perceive all this information. Our believes get challenged and disproven most build stronger walls but it is possible to escape this prison, this solitary confinement that we have sentenced ourselves to. And we may visit our prisons often but in time those visits can be less and maybe we can break the confinements of our minds. Building a truly new individual the one you’re destined to be not the one programed with boundaries set by your own mind.
Share your prison and how you broke or have periods of when you break free, the feeling the process lets us break this jail of the mind together and change our world.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Craig Sicilia will be interviewing Dr. Schmidt from Tennessee hyperbaric and what it can do for brain injury and what you can expect
Dr. Schmidt will discuss hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a treatment for traumatic brain injury on this talk show.
During hyperbaric oxygen therapy at THC, patients relax in a six-person chamber and breathe 100% oxygen under pressure. This drives oxygen into cells, reviving them or helping them function. The Tennessee Hyperbaric Center uses 100% medical grade oxygen and is certified by the State of Tennessee. The staff is led by Medical Director Dr. Roy Schmidt. HBOT is the only non-hormonal treatment approved by the FDA for biologically repairing and regenerating human tissue.
The Tennessee Hyperbaric Center, under direction of board certified anesthesiologist Dr. Roy Schmidt, offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for a variety of health issues. Learn more at www.hyperbaricoxygentherapies.com.

The Chosen One’s
As a new fiscal year launched with the 2014 Brain Injury Camping Experience ending a year I questions why I do these things, what good is it? What does it all mean? Why me Lord or Universe. Why should one person have to experience so much bad, it’s not fair. Ever since I was 3 or 4 years old I knew I was chosen all the time being beat by foster parents who the beatings are the only things I can remember of them. Promises made to exploit my talents. And now living with emotions that come from the depths of my soul I don’t think I can do what is programed from the universe pushing the very essences and fabric of who I am. It’s an essences so powerful there are other forces doing everything in their power to stop it. I use to think I was destined to be the leader of this as a young child I have seen wars with more soldiers, tanks, plains than ever imagined in Hollywood. I know now I am not this leader and am in awe of the leaders I have been blessed to meet, I think I am the vessel who was given the opportunity to create the environment where they can meet I am a soldier of what is to come. As I am to the point of I can’t take no more the universe gives me what I needed to learn once again.
But it feels like the last lesson in a long journey leading to something new. The Last 5 years of camping experiences have been part of it. What’s weird the experiences were out of sequence in my life but not in others’ lives. But it all ties together, the universe has went into a new age and we the people with disabilities are the chosen not the misfit’s society has labeled us with. Look around things are in motion of great change and great challenges and have been for decades if not centuries. I do not know how all the pieces fit together but the brain events many of us disrupt the plan
A TIME FOR REFLECTION
Just finished up our most popular event we do, hoopfest yesterday, and today makes the official end of our fiscal year but we have been broke for a couple months, and many of the popular things dont really get much money. But here we go to our 7th brain injury camp, which this year my radar stops
This last year i tracked what we do and the cost verses funding sources but this time I am factoring in the personal cost on me. The last 6 months of last fiscal year its been 7 days a week 10 to 15 hour days, all which i do to myself, emails (tens of thousands of emails each month) and phones are not handled it comes down to doing the physical work, making sure groups go off, I have spent a couple of years mentoring a group of very capiple men and woman who will take over support groups officially tomorrow (THE 5) i PLan on calling them into the show tonight they dont know it ill post this on their facebook walls and hour before
Many other projects I have put much effort into self sustaining leadership, people who can do it!!! (Im calling them into the show too) i hope.
I have been finalizing tasks and evaluating everything for the last 43 days and am now in reflective mode, evaluating where i fit, evaluating any service that cannot be sustained or that is sustained poorly letting it fail.
Doing my first ever personaal budget for this next fiscal year, being real with the efforts and as a person with a disability giving a far days work for any wages through grants and not straining me and my family trying to fix the world,
The biggest thing is i am eliminating myself on anything politacal, Im done I've lost friends over it, see the hurt and frustration on survivors really trying to change their circumstances in live only to find out their an industry. And the fact that survivors can't get along either, hopeles
ISOLATION - LOST INSIDE MYSELF
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
Lost Inside Myself: I know I am not the only one who feels like they’re in a bubble. The bubble of life I can see out of my bubble but i am imprisoned inside of it. Sentenced to watch life happen but cannot touch it, only watch it pass us by.
As well no one can get inside our bubble. Maybe we are all waiting for a bubble master, someone who can get inside the bubble with us and maybe together we can break a hole in this bubble that has become a prison that keeps us from being an active participant in our own life’s.
Unlike Houdini we are stuck and as the years and decades go by the walls to the bubble get thicker and harder to break free from. Till we become institutionalized to our bubble, which is where our bubble is becomes the only home we know or can remember. We fight to stay inside our bubble.
LET US BREAK FREE FROM OUR BUBBLE'S BEFORE IT'S TO LATE
