Join me, Michael W Idell this Friday February 5th at 5:30 p.m. till 6:50 p.m. Pacific time ( that's 8:30 p.m. till 9:50 p.m. Eastern Time ) on Brain Injury Radio Network as your host.
The topic of the week is "Let's Stop the Labels".
People with disabilities should be looked at by their abilities not what they're incapable of doing. There needs to be a stop with degradation segregation stereotypes and no one deserves to be pitied.
Many people with disabilities have more drive, initiative, and motivation more than most "normal" lazy people do without a disability.

Life is not falling to pieces unless we let things get the best of us.Those of us who do not see the positive side of situations, need motivation and friends to pick each other up in this community. We must stand together!
Drugs don't fix anything but create a temporary fix. A pharmaceutical "bandaids" are only temporary but can lead to a permanent problem. Chemical dependencies, prescriptions, and doctors pharmaceutical coping strategies do not permanently fix problems we encounter. Coping strategies within groups and individual counseling services help individuals work past dilemmas.
This weeks show is going to address how far we have come, where we have been and paying attemntion to the accomplishments we made to get there, not cry in our sorrows but rejoice what we do have.
Please join us this Friday, November 6th, 2015
YAWN! After a brain injury you get a little sleepy. I know I slept alot. There were days when I had no clue what day it was. My sleeping patterns changed as the healing process began. Many times I stayed awake and in silence.
Let's talk about getting some sleep. And if you do not sleep what do you do?

Ann Boriskie, a TBI survivor of more than 17-years says, “Get involved. Volunteer.” “By helping others with a brain injury, you truly help yourself in so many ways.” Ann is the Brain Injury Peer Visitor Association Director and her motto is “YOU CAN!”
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!

Positive motivation has an impact on everyone involved with family members, caregivers and those involved with neurological impairments.
Recovery processes have an undoubtable negative impact on invidividuals without a positive influence involved.
A positive perception assists everyone through coping strategies including the initial impact on the news, the struggles involved, and the accomplishments made.
Families and caregivers need to have somewhere to go to when they have their struggles like giving up their lives, paying bills, making time for another life, and the responbilities which ensue.
Then most importantly is teamwork! ANYONE INVOLVED NEEDS TO LISTEN, LEARN, AND COMMUNICATE!
This is why we (ASBISG.org) have conference calls and meetings for caregivers. All of the attention isnt focused on just the survivors lives. Caregivers and family members understanding, communication, love and affection have an enormous affect on the brain injured. We are all a product of our environment. The community needs to help one another and help each other through the good times and bad.
You do not have to be brain injured to be involved in the brain injury community. What you will learn about is how we are each other’s family in many circumstances. Because brain injuries don't just involve a traumatic brain injury, a stroke, a person who is mentally handicapped, or someone seen with a walker; there are hundreds of us who are with master’s degrees, major accomplishments, happy families, children, marriages, and careers who are brilliant and well mannered.
So many in the public don’t understand who we are. They don't understand this could be them in a moment’s notice as life events occur at any given time. Survivors and caregivers unite and we build a family of our own! We talk about what we have become and how well we stand together!
What we can do and will do is educate the public! We show individuals life is way too short and need to enjoy every second we have while we are here ALIVE! We do not let people whole us down! We will not allow anyone to talk down to us. We are strong and we are proud we have accomplished so much.
Join us together for a positive approach in life! Whining and complaining about how bad your life is, is just a waste of valuable time!
We Talk About What We Have Become and How Well We Stand Together!
