Melissa Cronin was strolling through the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market when an elderly man lost control of his car and barreled into the crowd. That changed her life forever. Now Melissa lives with ‘invisible bruises.” But Melissa picked up the pieces and is embarking on a new career. Read her interview on Surviving Traumatic Brain Injury to find out what it is and check out her story, “Invisible Bruise” in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Recovering from Traumatic Brain Injuries.
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, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip 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!

It is our Survivors World night and we are talking about the bruises you can't see, the control strings our parents & partners use to keep us in 'line'. You are not a puppet on strings. You have value & You are capable of living without them. Call in at 347-215-7754 or connect in our chatroom with our volunteers. Show starts at 9pm eastern/ 8pm central/ 7pm mountain/ 6m pacific time. We welcome men, women & most certainly teens. Emotional abuse is a vile destruction of the person you were intended to be, but you do not have to give them this power!!
On this show we are looking at the studies on this type of harm, but more importantly we want to hear about your experiences. Did your parents commonly use the word 'Stupid' to describe you as a person? Did/does your patner or spouse have you believing that you have absolutely no identity without them, that you are completely incapable of achieving/completing the slighest small task? Are you constantly struggling to see yourself in a mirror, some reflection of a person who does exist? You are invited to come share this with us as we open up our phones to hear your voice!!

Post-breakup, pulling yourself out of a pit of despair and soggy Kleenex is not the easiest thing to do. Between wallowing in self-pity and hatching your totally fail-proof plan to win your ex back, who really has the time to move on?
Sometimes, the pain of lost love is so intense that it can shake our beliefs about romance and relationships. When these emotional bruises are not understood and have not healed properly, they become invisible baggage that drag with us into the next relationship

Uncle Mark & Brandon have set up in the Frat House Sports garage to chat up a bit of end-of-season NASCAR noise, nonsense and shenanigans . . . AND they're taking your calls as well!
ANOTHER non-Chaser won at last week's Chase Race #8 at Texas Motor Speedway and the second Hendrick Motorsports driver in-a-row, Jimmie Johnson. Boy, do those guys love playing spoiler! With just one race left before the "Final Four" cut, who was the biggest loser? Well, Brad Keselowski certainly had the biggest bruises following the Keselowski-Gordon-Harvick brawl!
But, NOW here comes ANOTHER "cut day" with Race #9 at Phoenix International Raceway and, AGAIN, the conversation revolves around those that can advance yet have not won or are perceived heavy underdogs -- guys like Ryan Newman and Denny Hamlin . . . oh, they've been saying it for weeks . . . but, is THIS the one where 'BK" meets the wall???
PLUS . . . the feel good story of the week in NASCAR comes from an 18-year-old rookie Champion over in the Nationwide Series, Chase Elliott!
They've got the coffee. You bring the donuts and bring enough for the guys parked right now over in the "Frat House Sports Garage" . . . oh, and be sure to give them a call at 347 - 826 - 9964!
This will be a heartfelt interview with my guest Suzanne Perry who is a survivor of domestic violence. Often you hide the bruises and the shame behind a smile while afraid on the inside to speak up and take control back in your life. Together we will give information on how to escape the behavior and take that first step towards the rest of your life before death becomes your alternative. Domestic Violence is not on a female problem but men are abused as well. Let's stop the cycle and stop the madness.
One of the hottest topics of late, is the subject of domestic violence. Dr. Michael S. Williams predicts that after a few news cycles, the subject will disappear! However, lest YOU think that PRO ATHLETES are the only ones that are abusive, THINK again! Abuse effects and is interwoven into the greatest and most prestigious institutions of our society! Abuse is to be founding the institutions of the Family, Church, Business, Government, and Educational. To point to a single video tape and demand action is nothing more than the Devil’s scheme to throw us off his scent! Fasten your seat belts! This is going to be a bumpy, yet BIBLICALLY helpful ‘cast!

Also special guest tonight
Nancy has over 30 year’s experience as an event planner, marketing director, volunteer coordinator, and small business owner. Her story with cancer began in August 2007, when her oldest son, Michael was diagnosed with Stage I Testicular Cancer. As a mother, she spent her life wanting the best for her children and dreaming that they would be whatever they wanted to be when they grew up. Of course there are the expected bumps and bruises along the way, but never did she imagine what it would be like to fight for her son’s life. In August 2007, Michael felt a lump and at first ignored it. Eventually he agreed to an ultrasound and as he walked out into the waiting room following the procedure it was as if time stood still. Michael’s words “I have cancer and we are not going to cry about it” were words she would never forget. The following two months included two major surgeries and a good prognosis for his future.
Following their victory over Florida, Alabama is enjoying their first bye week.

The NFL appears to have a huge problem with players committing acts of domestic abuse. In recent weeks three NFL players found themselves at the center of controversy for abusing women in their lives. The most notable is Ray Rice, who was seen on video knocking his wife unconscious on an elevator. On the heels of this story is an account of Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals accused of head butting his wife and breaking her nose after she refused his sexual advances. Then there is Greg Hardy, “The Kraken”, of the Carolina Panthers. In July, Greg Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.
These were the most notable abusive acts by NFL players against women recently. There is another NFL player that has made the news for an abusive act. However, in this case it wasn’t against a woman.
Adrian Peterson, of the Minnesota Vikings, is accused of going too far in disciplining his four year old son. It is said that Peterson used a “switch” in disciplining his son and left bruises on the child.
ESPN writer Kate Fagan weighed in during an interview and called on the NFL to invest millions of dollars to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse. She even conveyed that we need to reprogram how we raise men.
What are your thoughts on domestic violence? Do you think it’s gotten worse over the years? What can be done to resolve this social ill? Does the Holy Bible offer a solution?
