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 others family in many cirumstances. 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 masters degrees, major accomplishments, happy families, children, marraiges, and careers who are brilliant and well mannored.
So many in the public dont understand who we are. They don't understand this could be them in a moments 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!
The Layers of Brain Injury – With DJ Asselin
Welcome Back DJ after he finds himself rehabilitating from yet a second brain injury, the hurdles that he has had to go through, the system, the support, the everything. There is so many layers to brain injury and there seems to be no consistency anywhere. And as a survivor and their family or supports go through this, things are usually at their worst. Join Dj as he talks about these layers that will blow your mind. It will leave you thinking.
How do you accept your brain injury without pushing it under the rug to forget it or have it come up in every conversation with others?
It All Starts With You!
After a clinical setting, survivors wondering where they go from here, who understands, and questions comes up. From building confidence, self-esteem, empowerment and optimism; self-help groups help meeting others in the community going through similar circumstances in real life dealing with emotions, struggles, and encouraging stories of those who got past their dilemmas.
Support services to build assistance these people into a normal life style to get back on track in a comfortable, safe, caring and optimistic atmosphere to empower them and build their self-esteem. Support groups are equally beneficial when psychotherapy has been established for a client as it builds strength and character for them they can do this on their own. Statistics show how life improvements for clients and those who want to volunteer their own time have made a vast improvement with the ability to help others in a time of need. This helps who is trying to get back into the work force, helps assist others in need, and helps bring friendships and understanding to people who think no one understands.

RevKess is pleased to get the opportunity to visit with Wendy Callahan, a Nebraskan author and steampunk novelist with an extensive background in Paganism and spirituality.
Note: The focus of the show went in a different direction at the request of Wendy. She wanted to talk about Pagan parenting, or more to the point, parenting as a Pagan. There is a difference. Tune in for the archive of the show to learn more about that. The topic of her writing came up towards the end of the show.
As her bio describes: "Wendy is a contemporary and steampunk fantasy author, co-author of "Steampunk for Simpletons," and a genealogical Nancy Drew in disguise. A college town New Englander turned one-horse town Nebraskan, she raises a cup of Dunkies to life among cornfields and coyotes. She is still pleasantly surprised that amber waves of grain exist, and has declared the Midwestern prairies "wicked cool."
"Her writing has been featured in “Witches & Pagans” (f.k.a. “newWitch”), “The Beltane Papers”, “If… A Journal of Spiritual Exploration” (f.k.a. “PagaNet News”), and many other publications."
RevKess first "met" Wendy over social networking a few years back and has devoured several of her fantasy novels and shared in conversations about writing. Adding her voice to the conversation, KaliSara will be talking parenting from a Pagan perspective with this multi-faceted guest.

Many of us have hard days in life just as anyone else does but with a brain injury, coping strategies are hugely different.
Positive reinforcement may need to come from family, friends, and caregivers but how can we do it within ourselves?
Emotional impacts on the brain injured have a different level than the general public but it isn't impossible to achieve rewards through positive coping strategies. Let's discuss what we do to help, ideas what may be better, and alternative measures than medication.
We have a weekly conference call Mondays for anyone who would like to learn about brain injury and share their stories:
US Toll Number:
At the scheduled date and time of the meeting, dial into the conference line. When prompted, enter the meeting ID followed by the pound key. To join the online meeting, click on the meeting link listed above and follow the prompts to join the meeting.
Juliet Madsen has served in the US Army since she was 17-years old. She was involved in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. While serving her country, Juliet suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and at least one stroke, which changed her life forever.
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, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips 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!
