  • "Another Fork in the Road" Panel - "Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury"

    in Education

    For many survivors damage to the brain gets in the way of cognitive learning and adaptations must be made. Accommodations come in many and varied forms. This evening two young women, who both sustained a brain injury, Melissa Cronin and Juliet Madsen, are joining me on a panel to discuss “Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury.”


    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!

  • Rescheduled BTR Crash: Brain Injury Research Model with Dr Whyte on Recovery Now

    in Health

    This show was rescheduled from 8/26 due to the Crash of our Provider, Blog Talk. Sorry for the failings on modern technology, but since the original show never fired at all, don't miss Dr Whyte now!


    Dr. Whyte is a physiatrist and experimental psychologist specializing in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. He has worked as a clinician caring for patients with severe brain injury for 30 years, as well as conducting research on many issues related to TBI and other neurologic conditions. He is the founding director of the Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute, begun in 1992, and an Attending Physician at MossRehab. His research focuses on cognitive impairment after TBI, including assessment and treatment, with a major emphasis on disorders of attention, executive function, and consciousness. He has participated in the TBI Model System research program since 1997, and has received numerous awards for his research and leadership in TBI rehabilitation. See: Main Page http://www.msktc.org/  AND  http://www.msktc.org/tbi for many free TBI resources, AND  http://www.msktc.org/tbi/model-system-centers for TBI Model Systems.


    This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. 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.

    in Education

    Former NFL San Fran 49er, George Visger had many concussions during his years playing organized football. His turning point came when he had a severe concussion during the 1981 Super Bowl season with the San Francisco 49ers in a game against the Dallas Cowboys.


    George has good advice for brain injury survivors. “Turn your negative into a positive and touch people’s lives. Focus on your positives."

    Brain Injury Communication with Host Michael Idell - Brain Injury Bonding

    in Education

    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!
