Sports and concussions have spurred a tremendous amount of media attention in the recent years. What do we know about the long-term affects of concussions? What are the current researchers focusing on concerning sports and concussions?
Please join me in welcoming Dr. McDonald from the Neuroscience Center at Indiana University Medical Center. Dr. McDonald will be discussing a rather large research study funded by the NFL and GE concerning youth and concussions. Dr. McDonald is the lead investigator of just one of sixteen research facilities that have been awarded this grant. Tune in, call in and together we can make a difference!

The Brain Injury Roundtable is a place for Ideas, discussion, and recovery for people seeking solutions, to bridge the gap between understanding brain injury and insights on how to change life for the better so be prepared to hear some great information to motivate and inspire us and change the world. The main reason we are tackling this topic this evening is that even a seemingly minor concussion can have life-long, life altering consequences. And that is the topic of tonight's discussion. The plan is to learn from one another and to educate one another about TBI and its aftermath. We know personally just how a traumatic even a concussion can be.
EES (Energy Enhancement System) - What is it? Find out how it helps Brain Injured People to heal. Fantastic Frank tells about his experience in the Heart Forgiveness Program he attended in April. Emily and Branden are veterans of the program and are eye witnesses to Fantastic Frank’s experience.

Many of us have hard days in life just as anyone else does but with a brain injury, coping strategies are hugely different.
Positive reinforcement may need to come from family, friends, and caregivers but how can we do it within ourselves?
Emotional impacts on the brain injured have a different level than the general public but it isn't impossible to achieve rewards through positive coping strategies. Let's discuss what we do to help, ideas what may be better, and alternative measures than medication.
We have a weekly conference call Mondays for anyone who would like to learn about brain injury and share their stories:

Juliet Madsen has served in the US Army since she was 17-years old. She was involved in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. While serving her country, Juliet suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and at least one stroke, which changed her life forever.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

Have you or someone you have loved been wrapped up just thinking about brain injury all day and night? "I wish I was who I was back then or before"..... Does your day get taken up by thinking how bad things are or what is getting on your nerves? How much time is wasted thinking about what others are doing and what you are not doing? Where do you go from here? CHANGE.
Utilize your time in a positive fashion or you are just wasting your time!
Stop thinking of your past and concentrate on a positive tomorrow. Your time is wasted thinking about your past instead of focusing on a better life today! If you have a brain injury, you can not change the life experiences that came our way but you can change your perspective of how it consumes you. Your mind sets your mood. You decide on what gets the best of you. You decide to be strong or to be weak. If you need help or some motivation, reach out to those who love you. Call someone who cares to pick you up when you are down. Call someone in the brain injury community like us!

"TBI and i" is a show that lends us an avenue to explore the aspects of brain injury that are often brushed aside or are not explained in exactly the right way. Together, we can help each other understand our own situations, as well as cover things we may do to help spread awareness and support.
Brain Injury isn't the end - just a chance for you to do it again...better.
If you want to learn more about me, go to TBI and i.
