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.
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.

The Real Face of Brain Injury
We talking the real face of brain injury like your mom or dad, your brother or sister, husband or wife. Brain Injury happens to anyone anytime. There is no face of brain injury it is invisible and we need to educate society that you cannot see a brain injury. All the time some organizations our looking for faces to touch peoples heart so that the organizations can touch peoples wallets. If they are successful the majority of people who live with a brain injury won’t fit the label and face they are trying so hard to establish for their bottom line.
So it is up to us survivors to counter this, to make sure people get to see the real face of brain injury. They need to see your face, hear your story. As hard and unfair as it is it is up to survivors. Only we can change our world and make no mistake there are great obstacles. Millions and millions of dollars are being put into branding the face of brain injury. And millions into studies to observe the obvious.
Tonight share your story, share your face. Share what you really want and need. And let us share what we can do to get the real face of brain injury into the hearts and minds of our community, into the people we love to help us hang on to those relationship. We must help people understand so that mean against all odds we must learn to understand this new person, and quickly. Together sharing our stories we can make tomorrow a day of our dreams

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.
STRAIGHT OUTTA BRAIN INJURY
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

Brain Injury Support groups save lives, build communities and give meaning to a life affected by brain injury
Many who think about groups, think it may just be coffee and a donut but they are so much more than that, groups for many are the only connection to society, any connection to any other person that is not a medical profession or pharmacist dish out medicines.
Groups get people into the community if their facilitated right, doing healthy activities such as yoga, meditation and nutrition and exercise. They can help survivors and their families find a purpose that has meaning. Even after years of being stuck in hopeless mode. It saves lives, for many survivors who first discover others who have the same challenges, it can be the first glimpse of hope. Hope that life is not only about loss and pain. Hope that life can have meaning. No other services available to those living with a brain injury can inspire hope like peer support.
We are doing this episode to share with any and all who ever want to limit support groups, we need people to understand the power in Peer support groups, the power to rebuild life, and dreams..
