SORT BY Relevancy
How many individuals with cleft and craniofacial anomalies are told, either directly or indirectly, to "get out of the way" or "I wish you'd never been born?" Maybe a few around the world; maybe a lot. That and many other forms of discounting people for the truly wonderful, kind and compassionate individuals that lie beneath the outer look can lead to isolation. Host Joe Rutland talks about how powerful, toxic and dangerous isolating from people, communities and life can be. He'll discuss the subtle difference between isolation, loneliness and solitude. Also, what does isolation look like to you? This, and much more, will be discussed on this week's "CleftCast."

Alien: Isolation is the newest Alien game to hit shelves, and with the Alien franchise having a shitty track record when it comes to videogames, we proceeded cautiously. We took control of Amanda Ripley (Ellen Ripley's daughter) and made her traverse dark hallways full of baddies, from androids to face huggers! But let's not forget the biggest threat: A full-grown Alien! Join us as we dissect what could be the scariest game we've played yet. All aboard the Sevastopol!
Do you find yourself mistaking isolation for strength? This is a common pattern among people in active addiction and the habit can persist into recovery. There is a saying in recovery rooms which states, “Addiction is the only disease that tells you that you are alright.”, so when we isolate, we are putting our recovery at risk.
On this episode of The Bubble Hour we discuss the issue of isolation with Andrea Owen, certified life coach and author of “52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life”.
ISOLATION - LOST INSIDE MYSELF
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
Lost Inside Myself: I know I am not the only one who feels like they’re in a bubble. The bubble of life I can see out of my bubble but i am imprisoned inside of it. Sentenced to watch life happen but cannot touch it, only watch it pass us by.
As well no one can get inside our bubble. Maybe we are all waiting for a bubble master, someone who can get inside the bubble with us and maybe together we can break a hole in this bubble that has become a prison that keeps us from being an active participant in our own life’s.
Unlike Houdini we are stuck and as the years and decades go by the walls to the bubble get thicker and harder to break free from. Till we become institutionalized to our bubble, which is where our bubble is becomes the only home we know or can remember. We fight to stay inside our bubble.
LET US BREAK FREE FROM OUR BUBBLE'S BEFORE IT'S TO LATE

After getting her start on season two of the critically-acclaimed FX series The Shield, Kelli was tapped to develop the look that sparked a fashion phenomenon with the wildly popular biker gang drama Sons of Anarchy.

STEPS OF ISOLATION
WITH: Craig Sicilia and Special Co-host Cheryl Green
Thanksgiving not only is the beginning to Black Friday but the beginning for many to a dark, harsh hell. So much pain and regret for many as well as disappointment of epic proportions. So much so that many find it hard to trust and reach out to others little alone accept anything from any one.
As televisions blasts shows about family and friendship and the good old days, this brings so many reminders of losses not only in our friends and family but our own personal communities. And this is just one of many emotions going through someone’s head who has survived a brain injury. Then you add the fact of those organizations who profit and say they serve us really don’t want much to do with us unless it makes them look good or profit they bottom line or on some spreadsheet representing data so they can make more money off our pain and injury
Then adding in that 80% plus of those living with a brain injury are brought into poverty and kept there, and as their children hope for great gifts (as seen on tv) this emotional toll puts the weight of the world on their shoulders and weighs their heart down to a deep dark place. The miracle is that any of us that go through this is we make it through, but at what cost.
We must step out, reach out and find out, a life that has purpose and sustaining purpose for it is truly that purpose that gets each of us through this time.
Join us with your ways of dealing with this, the struggles, the successes the story..
