    Brain Injury Awareness or What?

    in Education

    Tonight, Ken Collins will talk about brain injury awareness and who is getting helped by all this awareness.  Ken will talk about the many brain injury awareness efforts he has been involved with since 1985.  After all these years of brain injury awareness and advocacy why it is the public, legislators and health are care professionals not aware of brain injury?    How says we need more brain injury awareness?  When does brain injury awareness become just another way to market obscenely expensive services and the thieves who are stealing the lives of people with brain injuries for their own personal gain and prosperity?  When those of us who are concerned about this problem speak up we are labeled as trouble makers or worse.  Are all the brain injury survivor sites on Facebook helping people with brain injuries or the industry that is making billions of dollars exploiting people with brain injuries?  What role can people with brain injuries play in creating community-based services for people with brain injuries?   When does sitting around waiting for something to change without doing anything help the process?

    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

  • Brain Injury Depths of Holiday - Hosted by Craig Sicilia

    in Spirituality

    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.

    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

    in Culture

    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.
