    Welcome The Science of Happiness, There is Life After Brain Injury

    My name is LoriPurdy Faitel and I am your host

    I am a Survivor of a Traumatic Brain Injury & 7 Day Coma, 6 years before I felt like a regular person again.


    I am a state Licensed and Nationally Certified OTA (Occupational Therapy Assistant,) I have worked in the world of the non brain injured for more than 20 years.


    It has only been the last 5 or so years that I have concentrated all my energies in giving back. I currently work in several TBI rehab facilities, I am an author of a memoir “Am I Brain Damaged” which is available in audio on iTunes or as an ebook on kindle and in paperback directly from me.


    I never dreamed of being a radio host, and I am learning so very much!


    Tonights show is an interview I did with a fellow/female TBI survivor-Nancy Bauser. Listen as I talk to Nancy about what it was like when she was injured in the 1970’s, as we talk about life post TBI and her views.


     Please send me good wishes for tonights broadcast.  I will be listening live with you, I will keep my eye on the chat room and I will interrupt the interview to give additional insights.


    I hope you enjoy this show.

    The Science of Happines-Yes we can be happy after Brain Injury

    in Education




    My name is Lori Purdy Faitel; I am a survivor from a car wreck/TBI/7 day coma back in 1986, and I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant/ COTA. I have worked in Metro Detroit Since 1992.  I went to college for OT with one thing in mind and that was to work with the brain injured.  In the last 2 years I have been blessed to do so. Our Father God has given me guidance throughout my life and I find when I listen; and when I follow his guidance I realize abundance. I see abundance as happiness in life, and I am happy.I pray for all who are troubled, so that you may also find happiness.

    Tonight I want to dedicate my show to a someone very close to me who is recuperating from Cancer Surgery. Robin Navarolli, I love you and look forward to many years of happiness with you.

     I will share broadcasts from motivational, inspirational and Christian speakers. PLEASE do not let the religious overtones turn you off. I know that I had the strength to overcome the brain injury because of listening to things like this. The best I can do for others is to share what worked for me, you don't have to believe what I know is true, just listen and perhaps gain a new perspective on your life and future happiness.

    We are all different people with different circumstances, if one iota of something that helped another was able help someone within our brain injured community, BRING IT ON. Listen live tonight or at anytime in the archives (recorded shows)

    Brain Injury Roundtable – BRAINSTORM

    in Education

    .Welcome to another episode the Brain Injury Roundtable. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of 32 years; author of the original brain injury owner's manual entitled From The Ashes. This innovative guidebook was featured on Super Bowl XXXIV. Miller is Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com.  Also joining us will be Tai Campbell, my invaluable contributor who is a tireless community activist, and founder of Taken Back Our Community (TBOC) http://www.tbocnow.org. Also of note he is the survivor of an incredible history of childhood brain injuries.   I'd like to thank: all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, or your mobile device wherever you are 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 http://www.TBILaw.com .
    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.

    Brain Injury Communication with Host Michael Idell -Brain Injury Acceptance

    in Education

                How do you accept your brain injury without pushing it under the rug to forget it or have it come up in every conversation with others? 

                                                                                        It All Starts With You!

                After a clinical setting, survivors wondering where they go from here, who understands, and questions comes up. From building confidence, self-esteem, empowerment and optimism; self-help groups help meeting others in the community going through similar circumstances in real life dealing with emotions, struggles, and encouraging stories of those who got past their dilemmas.

                Support services to build assistance these people into a normal life style to get back on track in a comfortable, safe, caring and optimistic atmosphere to empower them and build their self-esteem. Support groups are equally beneficial when psychotherapy has been established for a client as it builds strength and character for them they can do this on their own. Statistics show how life improvements for clients and those who want to volunteer their own time have made a vast improvement with the ability to help others in a time of need. This helps who is trying to get back into the work force, helps assist others in need, and helps bring friendships and understanding to people who think no one understands.

    Down and dark days of brain injury survival with Host Michael Idell

    in Education

    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:
