I HAD A DREAM
M.L.K. is the master of advocacy a advocacy that changes hearts and minds knowing it takes generations of advocacy and hard work he began a journey that was not popular in the minds of those who stood to lose the most and those they influenced. It was a fight started a hundred years before him and will be going on a hundred years after. But the king taught man to stand up for what they believe, to not accept how things are. He as well paid the ultimate price for his believes. Until Dr. King we humans did not know what it was to stand up for something greater than ourselves To stand up to change what people think and how they treat another person. We will Honor Dr. King and talk about his history as it relates to our future.
So many of us who are living in the aftermath of a brain injury understand this. And as people, our communities and society in general are largely clueless what brain injury means. Hell it takes us survivors who live with it everyday years to even begin to understand. We asking people to understand and accept something they cannot see. And in many cases something we can’t explain or cope with. And most of the time by the time we can begin to explain or understand it, there is no one left to share it with. And like most movements those who feel so deeply and step up to bring change will never see the change in people’s hearts and minds. You can have all the laws and acts and everything else but none of it means a thing until it is in people’s hearts and minds.
How do we change hearts and minds, how do we find each other. Reach out find someone don’t be alone, then together find others. Find that voice that we have in common and change the world.

Holidays are a hard time for many survivors, alot of the survivors I have met have lost most of their relationships, careers, homes and any real connection to a community. So the season being a time were people focus on memories of the past it can be a realy hard thing. And not always is the the most recent that struggles the most. What realy seems to be a difficult situation is not the loss but our hardened selfs that close the world out to ourselves.
We create this cycle of hell, and the holidays seem to be the center of it all to many. I like many just struggle to make it through this time of year. We have to shed our losses, and it everyones fault ours included but the new us, the new me have to find a way to feel the glow of life beeming through our bodies. We may have hard momments, days or weeks but keep trying to see the ray of hope, its all we have never lose faith.

Join in as we ponder “Why”
Here I go through what is my 8th Christmas, or holiday season, this time of year is the setting for my life as I knew it would slowly crumble over a couple of year period. But at the same time the desperation of trying to figure out what the hell is going on. This person with emotional burst of I don’t know what. As well as an inner change of what I held important. Of the very fibers of what made me me, and as I look into the mirror I was somebody I didn’t even recognize.
Finding others like myself was a key in holding a life together, and it got easier as I discovered who I was and what I valued. Many had a hard time with this “new me “as did I. This year I learned more valuable lessons as the distance between the old and new me. As I continue to let go of parts of the old me, it has become clear that this new person is who I am, and I have to learn to live a life again as this new me, like it or not.
As you stop caring about those things you once held close to your heart, the feeling just being left void inside your deepest essence of who you are. As you wonder - What is to Come Next?
in Pop Culture
Living with a brain injury has been interesting, harsh and unforgiving. I have learned more about humanity in the last 7 years than I have all the rest of the years combined. I had a hope that one day it would be behind me. All the overwhelmed brain days, all of the headaches, all of the thoughts of self-worthlessness and doubt. As we approach these days that get shorter each day, the weather getting wet and cooler. Shorter days and longer nights add to our feeling down. Holidays are reminders of days past, and people past. I know for me it takes all my energy to get through them.
I try to paint the pretty face for my daughters and people who look to me for support. It is so hard at times. I just like everyone else want to crawl under a rock and isolate from the world. Disappear into the darkness that my mind creates. And create it does, a never ending race of thoughts that I cannot process because my brain is going faster than I can understand. And sometimes these thoughts get me in trouble, on the wrong path.
The blessing side of this I have developed a life that accommodates my life, and these over stimulating conditions that can pound me into the group. And I have had those moments where I thought I could leave it all behind and just blend into society. Refuse for a short time to time respite from all that has crumbled in my life. As I rebuild this new me, on I don’t even fully recognize. I am learning I am trapped inside myself and for the seven years of my fight there has been NO WAY OUT.

When the time comes to – LET GO
Hosted by: Craig Sicilia
WE NEED YOU TO SHARE TONIGHT LETS, LET GO - TOGETHER
Letting go is the hard of all things to recover from. How do you recover from losing everyone and everything? How the hell does that happen, it’s not fair. But you know what they say life is not fair. A big part (thank God) is that there are more survivors than ever. Medicine is amazing how they can put us back together. At least our bodies, but all the time our bodies and brain are healing our life that we had starts changing like in the twilight zone. For many it just plan desiderates slowly right be for our eyes and there is nothing we can do.
Eventually we have to pull it together and figure out how to live a life that is meaningful to ourselves. We never even start figuring it out till we stop trying to be who others think it is we should be. We have to learn to let go of those people and the emotional connection in our heart to them. We hang on to what we feel when people long ago written us off. Let them go, it was not you it was them who left. Granted you were excessive and impulsive but if you really mattered they would have figured it out and helped, you couldn’t. We can blame doctors, hospitals, others and ourselves. It is what it is, to much of the wrong kind of awareness in our behalves has polluted societies mind.
Now it is in our court once we make it to this point. I ask you this with everything you know, with every lesson you have learned. And to have lived in that void we call brain injury. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT.? You don’t like it, it’s not fair then be part of the solution. Let go of that past and embrace your tomorrow.

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.
