    Down and dark days of brain injury survival with Host Michael Idell

    in Education

    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:

    Another Fork in the Road: Juliet Madsen, Brain Injury Survivor, USA Troop

    in Education

    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!

    Brain Injury Communication with Host Michael Idell - Where Do We go from Here?

    in Education

    Have you or someone you have loved been wrapped up just thinking about brain injury all day and night? "I wish I was who I was back then or before"..... Does your day get taken up by thinking how bad things are or what is getting on your nerves? How much time is wasted thinking about what others are doing and what you are not doing? Where do you go from here? CHANGE.


    Utilize your time in a positive fashion or you are just wasting your time! 


    Stop thinking of your past and concentrate on a positive tomorrow. Your time is wasted thinking about your past instead of focusing on a better life today! If you have a brain injury, you can not change the life experiences that came our way but you can change your perspective of how it consumes you. Your mind sets your mood. You decide on what gets the best of you. You decide to be strong or to be weak. If you need help or some motivation, reach out to those who love you. Call someone who cares to pick you up when you are down. Call someone in the brain injury community like us! 


    Friday May 1st, 2015  
    5:00pm-6:30pm (Pacific time)  
    8:00pm -9:30pm (Eastern Time)


    You don't have to be brain injured to call in to our show!

    Brain Injury Round Table – BRAINSTORM April 9,, 2015

    in Education

    Welcome to another episode the Brain Injury Roundtable. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of 32 years; author of the original brain injury owner's manual entitled From The Ashes. This innovative guidebook was featured on Super Bowl XXXIV. Miller is Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com.  Also joining us will be Tai Campbell, my invaluable contributor who is a tireless community activist, and founder of Taken Back Our Community (TBOC) http://www.tbocnow.org. Also of note he is the survivor of an incredible history of childhood brain injuries.  I'd like to thank all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, or your mobile device wherever you are 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 http://www.TBILaw.com
    The Brain Injury Roundtable is a place for Ideas, discussion, and recovery for people seeking solutions, to bridge the gap between understanding brain injury and insights on how to change live for the better so be prepared to hear some great information to motivate and inspire us and change the world. The main reason we are tackling this topic this evening is that even a seemingly minor concussion can have life-long, life altering consequences. And that is the topic of tonight's discussion. The plan is to learn from one another and to educate one another about TBI and its aftermath. We know personally just how a traumatic even a concussion can be.
