    Brain Injury Connection on Recovery Now With Kim Justus

    in Health

    After a TBI, where Deb Palmer lost consciousness over asphalt, resulting in a subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage, she was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and major depression.  She knew she fell and hit her head, that something was wrong, but didn’t know what. She kept thinking it would go away with more sleep.  Nobody referred her to any resources for help or support.  Doctors obviously weren’t trained on how to address the long-term sequelae of brain injury or how to help someone who has had one.  Deb didn’t want what happened to her to happen to others.


    Deb decided to turn anger into something constructive; and, with the help of other survivors and some professionals, published  five free newsletters to educate about brain injury.  The demand for the publication was greater than expected so she decided to form a nonprofit organization. Thus, the Brain Injury Connection (BIC) was born. www.braininjuryconnection.org


    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.


    More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me."


    We focus on the four A's of Recovery: Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers.


    Front half of show is a featured guest. to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!


    Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org & "Like" at www.facebook.com/inaflash.org

  • Brain Injury Depths of Holiday - Hosted by Craig Sicilia

    in Spirituality

    Holidays are a hard time for many survivors, alot of the survivors I have met have lost most of their relationships, careers, homes and any real connection to a community.  So the season being a time were people focus on memories of the past it can be a realy hard thing.  And not always is the the most recent that struggles the most.  What realy seems to be a difficult situation is not the loss but our hardened selfs that close the world out to ourselves.


    We create this cycle of hell, and the holidays seem to be the center of it all to many.  I like many just struggle to make it through this time of year.  We have to shed our losses, and it everyones fault ours included but the new us, the new me have to find a way to feel the glow of life beeming through our bodies.  We may have hard momments, days or weeks but keep trying to see the ray of hope, its all we have never lose faith.

  • Episode 2: Second Sight, extra sensory perception and temporal lobe brain injury

    in Education

    Welcome to another episode of Brain Injury Round Table. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of more than 30 years and Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com. At the suggestion of Mr. Tai Campbell, of Taken Back Our Communities Now, http://www.tbocn.org, tonight’s show will look into the development of heightened feeling states following brain injury. Some such heightened feelings take the form of disturbances in the autonomic nervous system. The resulting condition is known as “hyper-arousal” and describes the effect of injury on things such as heart rate and respiration. Another aspect of heightened feeling states is sometimes seen as psychic or extra sensory abilities and in many instances is seen as a gift. Others in this category might feel undone by the sudden onset of such strange reveries and might find themselves pre-occupied by feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.


    It is seldom addressed by members of the profession called upon to make us whole, to take us from the point of being "patients" to being people again. Therefore, tonight  we’re going to take matters into our own hands. We’ll kick it around, swap stories and delve into another of those taboo topics associated with brain injury.


    Join us for another exciting and informative episode of Disability Roundtable. thanks to all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, your mobile device wherever you are all 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 TBI Law.com. Additionally, we look forward to bringing another sponsor Mia Marcum McCoy, brain injury survivor and author of a brain injury book that she will speak with us about on a future episode.

    How much do you know about brain injury?

    in Education

    How much do you know about brain injury? Many people talk about traumatic brain injury, strokes, cancer, and tumors but there are more!

    How many people know details about the others? Toxemia, M.S., M.D., diffuse axonal, anoxic, autism, etc. 

    There are a number or neurological impairments that are brain injuries which are never discussed enough or brought to the forefront of conversations.

    There are a number of things we, in the brain injury community, need to bring forth to the public, to make the public aware off, and to build educational resources available. 

    WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND HELP EDUCATE PEOPLE, NOT JUST US SURVIVORS BUT FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, AND LOVED ONES OF THE INJURED. 

    There are a group of us which are working on making a global resource center online for support, counseling and education but we all must stand together. Please join our show and lets start working together!

    BIGFOOT Expert Researcher KATHY STRAIN on Sasquatch Is Alive & Well

    in Paranormal

    Kathy Moskowitz Strain is currently the Forest Archaeologist for the Stanislaus National Forest, headquartered in Sonora, California. She is responsible for all archaeological and paleontological resources on her Forest and directs education and public participation programs on archaeology and Native American cultures. Kathy is currently the chair of the Alliance of Independent Bigfoot Researchers, a non-profit Bigfoot research group.



    Kathy became interested in Bigfoot as a child, and her interest lead her into the field of anthropology. Kathy received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology in 1990 and a Master of Arts in Behavioral Science (emphasis in Anthropology) in 1994. Her main field of study involved prehistoric human ecology.

    In 1991, as an archaeologist for the Sequoia National Forest, she began interviewing elders from the Yokuts Tribe about their traditional Hairy Man stories. This work lead her to an in depth study of the Hairy Man pictographs, located on the Tule River Indian reservation. She has presented her research at the 2003 Willow Creek Symposium, the 2005 Texas Bigfoot Conference, and published an article in Meet the Sasquatch, by Chris Murphy. Recently, she appeared on the Giganto: The Real King Kong special on the History Channel.

    Using her specialty in human ecology, Kathy is exploring the connection between Native American adaptation of the environment and how Bigfoot might also have used similar techniques to exploit plants and animals. Comparisons may be found in habitation methods and locations, hunting and gathering techniques, resource availability, calorie input/output, seasonal movements, etc. Knowing this information may foster collection of evidence not previously associated with Bigfoot behavior. It may also allow us to develop techniques to better obtain direct observations and therefore documentation and protection of this currently unrecognized primate.
