A TIME FOR REFLECTION
Just finished up our most popular event we do, hoopfest yesterday, and today makes the official end of our fiscal year but we have been broke for a couple months, and many of the popular things dont really get much money. But here we go to our 7th brain injury camp, which this year my radar stops
This last year i tracked what we do and the cost verses funding sources but this time I am factoring in the personal cost on me. The last 6 months of last fiscal year its been 7 days a week 10 to 15 hour days, all which i do to myself, emails (tens of thousands of emails each month) and phones are not handled it comes down to doing the physical work, making sure groups go off, I have spent a couple of years mentoring a group of very capiple men and woman who will take over support groups officially tomorrow (THE 5) i PLan on calling them into the show tonight they dont know it ill post this on their facebook walls and hour before
Many other projects I have put much effort into self sustaining leadership, people who can do it!!! (Im calling them into the show too) i hope.
I have been finalizing tasks and evaluating everything for the last 43 days and am now in reflective mode, evaluating where i fit, evaluating any service that cannot be sustained or that is sustained poorly letting it fail.
Doing my first ever personaal budget for this next fiscal year, being real with the efforts and as a person with a disability giving a far days work for any wages through grants and not straining me and my family trying to fix the world,
The biggest thing is i am eliminating myself on anything politacal, Im done I've lost friends over it, see the hurt and frustration on survivors really trying to change their circumstances in live only to find out their an industry. And the fact that survivors can't get along either, hopeles
It's been about a year since the organization grew, it grew so much it consumed me in every way, more groups than possible, more out reach hoping that everyone would be able to find a voice or ear. I had this weird vision that their could be a great unity of survivors, I saw this great potential for survivors. As we grew I disapeared, it happened so quick their was so much need. But for the need and the good there would be like dragons people who only destroyed and went after people, it fed them some how, then there is the political areana their as out of control as survivors that;s its own part of us, there is big money in brain injury..
I am really looking forward to camp, after camp i have to put things in perspective, i have litterally let everything go in this quest a quest that many don't want one that maybe i am tired of fighting, i have not really had contact with reality for a year I have been so busy, busy putting into place my life now, three priorities 1. get out of the poverty bracket 2. Do things for me 3. follow the path that will be infront of me.
I know the universe has some warped thing in store for me, now its time to explore that, finding that place where what i have to offer will make me a living. Building my new life one that fulfills my dreams and my childerns. What that is I don't know but i know it's coming now, believing in me, i just need to keep my mind open because it might not even be in this field what i do know dont offer enough value to sustain my family so that tells me something, tonight explore do we expire or what
New Year Now What
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
It is now a new year does that mean anything to anyone, does it mean any thing to me, should it mean anything, I am going to share what it means to me and others around me and what it can mean, what it might mean or maybe what it should mean to some. Let us share our hopes, dreams and fears.
Want to talk about our plans for the next year what we are going to do different from before and what we are going to keep doing you will have link to a new chat that we are trying out, to play with and a new application
Plans into the future where it is going or seems to be but we never know do we! All we can do is our best and it has to be good enough for ourselves or we go crazier. And all of us survivors know that plans can change, lives can change in a instant. If I have learned anything from my journey of my injury is we cannot count on nothing, we need to love each other but that don't mean those we love won't give up on the new us, and our personal happiness cannot be based on others only ourselves.
Hope to have some visionaries share what this next year is going to bring to them.and our movement, or civil rights movement to exist and to speak for ourselves, taking our voice away from big business.
We seem to live in a society where people expect everything, that is with or with out a brain injury. but when we are forced to do things we do, when are have it done for us we don't. You know the old saying about the hungry man, if you teach him to fish he is fed for life, you give the man the fish he is hungry tomorrow.
As I approach my 8 year mark I still and working on self discovery, I feel like the universe is about ready to open up my destiny, and ill be hosest I don't have the slightest clue what is instore for me. I am ready a self empowered person finally ready for what is to come
The What Ever Show
with Craig Sicilia
Going to do a update on our disability rights show and let you know how court turned out for the family and this time justice won.
Episode of Toms Tech Talk
In so many time it just don't. Residential services for people with disabilities has been bad for many people, but Washington has had and still having on investigations going on several fronts and the December released things were even more corrupt and dangers for us, many flaws on how the state funds designed to serve people with disabilities and with results of focus groups and investigations coming in showing over payments,
misconduct, sexual abuse, neglect by these people who are supposed to be serving us even state employed personal are coming to light and finally our legislators are taking action. We the people with disabilities need to stand together and fight this corrupt status quo no more good old boys get the money and give garbage and mislead people, and start protesting bring light to the dark. This abuse is going on all around the country wasting money we don’t have doing nothing to sustain people with disabilities but actually hurting there long term changes of independence.
Nothing about Us with Out Us
Ever wonder like me why you lived throught the accident, why we didn't pull that trigger, or jump off that roof. even when we have a healthy day sometimes we will still wonder why. What goes through our minds as we contemplate all the different ways and which would be less painful or worry about someone we care about finding our body. Seems like a never ending hampster wheel were on just round and round we go when we fall no body knows. even though lots of good things are happening enough of what we do carries over to the monetizers to profit from what we do, to save us from the people who think they know best. And maybe in the end some will make it through and move one with real lives again forgetting and leaving behind that harsh always lost feeling, and dont look back. Their the smart ones getting out of this business, trillion dollar business and then the medicines is where they get really rich, as your family and friends fall away one by one as you develop old principles that no one has people just come in and out of your life its like we go back 200 years where everything mattered, and we wonder why are we here what purpose of good does any of this have, because not a thing chances just round and round we go in our little wheel, maybe the theroy were already in hell isnt so far off

Help My Voice Has Been Stolen -
or did you give it away
HOSTED BY CRAIG SICILIA
Some wonder why we are not heard there are many reasons but we are going to talk about my top five
1 we can't get along with them
2 we dont care
3 its not my job
4 we dont say nothing were to afraid or lazy
5 Someone else has it and wont give it back
Disability these days is something that everyone wants it seems, rather than abilities we all have disabilities . I hear people in the disability base i just canf find a jobl No the fact is you dont have any skills.and your to lazy to get any.. I work with some fold that everything is done for them litterally everything. They dont have to do any thing if they know how, simple things like cook , make their bed, clean their toilet even know when to take their medicine. Were talking smart people we have taken care of them into uselessness. They have maid service
And we dont hold each other accountable, we all make mastakes unless you get service than thats not allowed, people get used to living off SSI and some have no choice but other get use to it
I am going to share the best of te best thank god there are a few left who get along, show up day after day, who do care the survivors list of leaders will be posted right before the show tune in and hear this, and more as well as a new song for the first time also my states bonner award for the top three shady, worthless, bad service places to do business

Love At First Sight
hosted by Craig Sicilia
As I seem to be inlove with someone at first sight again, the only love i have ever know is that which began at the first instance i met someon 4 times in this crazy life, I am talking about the crazy inlove. This is the first time since my brain injury which scares me, as I lay out my past so their is nothing to hide, I think why would i do this to someone I love. This of cource is my issue but me loving someone has never been good for anyone. click below for more to me loving
I don't understand why this happens to me and only happens this way, but it does seem it will keep me running and i have found some info about why this happens
Love at first sight is real, and it has been proven by health professionals. In fact it requires just milliseconds for the chemicals responsible for human euphoria to reach the brain as soon as we see a suitable human and the substances like dopamine, oxytocin, vasopressin and epinephrine are released. These are the results of a study conducted by researchers at Syracuse University in New York.
Share you facts on love and how you fall in love a
Ok during my journey I learned several things but most recently i only realized something right there and in front of my face and i kind of knew it but i didnt realize it was official. Any time a person gets services we are deemed less capible,have fewer rights as well, everyone has heard of the bill of rights, did you know there is a disability bill of rights , every symptom every hospitalization something is taken away.. Pretty sneaky huh, get this did you know when a veteran came back from vietnam and talked about ptsd they were denied almost everytime for years now when they comeback they are imediatlly almost confirtmed did you know that ssris just like brain injury are given as treatment and a doctor will document not following treatment plan, even more creapy is that that veteran also loses his or her second ammentment rights the right to bare arms just like the survivor who was hopitalized and observed - not only is the entitlement mentality harmful for our nation to our selfs it can be used at anytime to completely take every right away.at a whim at their will.
