Anguish - Lost Inside
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
Life is funny, we spend our whole lives building this person we think we know so well. Ourselves, then all of a sudden in a single instance it crumbles as we watch after a brain injury. Our friends and family hardly know us little alone have any desire to be around us shortly after. These experiences happen so quick in what seems to be a blink of an eye. We have no one in our lives, life seems to lose meaning. Soon we isolate and lose more of our ability to socialize in a typical world. Soon we ponder in being who we used to be and even give every ounce of energy and effort trying to be that person we remember.
Even though none of this perfect life we thought we had no longer exists, we find yourself alone, isolated inside of this vessel our body is no longer recognized by ourselves. And many may spend the rest of their lives in this state. How do we change this, how do we embrace and learn to live a life that we truly can love. One that we have not imagined yet. Join in tonight as we explore this...

Do you Empower or are you an Enabler
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
To Empower means letting go, teach the skill and step away, why bother teaching if you don't. Grass roots involves many leaders working together for the same goal, to bring real change takes real leaders, not puppets, those who settle for what is given, and buy into what every the system tells us, A grass roots movement is only for those who want to change this system. Are you happy or do you want to be part of a better tomorrow for all of us. Empower each other
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.
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
Special Report on Legal pot in Washington mixed with our memorial day remembering who we are now, we have 6 shots some real funny some pro pot some no pot what ever you think its legal in my state. I went and checked out one of the stores today, I invited them on the show and I will share my experience and you can share yours too call in tonight. You will love the reporting on this subject.
HARDER THAN LIFE
New Beginnings Life after Brain Injury
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
In rememberence of ourselves we shall talk about the following remembering we are incredable
After a brain injury life is hard, we no longer can trust our tools in dealing with relationships and the longer time goes on the harder it gets, we are social creatures and we will explore relationships and the difficulty with many aspects of interpersonal skills, trust and willingness to bend, but these things we must overcome these harder than life behaviors as a new person, building the new us.
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.
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
