The Dark Side of Brain Injury
Hosted by: Craig Sicilia
Brain Injury has created new opportunities and a new conciseness that I could have never imagined. It brought a different kind of hope and salvation. As good a person as I might have been before my brain injury I don’t think the gates of heaven would have been open to me, and even now I have things that need to be let go.
All of these major changes came with a cost, a huge cost that as well I could not imagine. To lose all that I was in such a rapid destruction of who I was. Lost my marriage, friends, job, home and myself. It shock my faith and challenged everything I once believed to be fact, or at least my fact.
And now to live a life as this new person, on what seems to be a personally lonely road, though I am incredible social I find myself very much alone at times I wish I wasn’t. I find my opinions and goals in conflict with many. But at the same time I believe I have learned to see the value in everyone. Even though I am learning not everyone can play in the sandbox or should play in it.
This show will explore some of those dark lonely times, those times for the good of this cause I would spend in solitude never allowing myself to get to close to someone. The price and the rewards, the pain and the joy. I know many have similar stories to share I invite you on to share your dark times and more importantly the tools to move beyond those dark times.
This radio show for family members, caregivers, doctors, nuerologists and public awareness!
What do you know about them?
Are you waiting for yours?
Do you know how to handle a brain injury?
What are you doing to learn?
When are you going to understand?
What are you doing now?
When family members, caregivers, loved ones, and significant others give up helping, where do you go? Outpatient services don't help unless insurance is involved. Medical staff in communities nationwide misdiagnose, brush off, discharge or don't treat brain injuries survivors when they come in about ailments due to their brain injury. They state it's all in their mind, nothing is really wrong. When do medical professionals get involved with unpaid, volunteer community outreach for those involved with brain injuries in the community to understand? Why don't medical staff get involved with support groups on a voluntary basis? How many times do family members and old friends tell a brain injury survivor to get over yourself and stop faking the injury? EVERYDAY! They don't realize anything till it happens to them. Then it's too late.
HOW CAN THIS BE FIXED? START SUPPORTING YOUR NON-PROFIT BRAIN INJURY SUPPORT GROUPS. HELP ADVOCATE ABOUT WHO THE GROUPS ARE. SPREAD THE WORD. GET INVOLVED WITH MEETINGS AND CONFERENCES. CONTRIBUTE YOUR TIME.

Any type of abnormal brain function is a brain injury. PTSD, multiple sclerosis, hydrocephalus, strokes, tumors, anoxia, neuromuscular disorders such as transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome or related neurologic conditions are all types of brain injuries of different kinds, along with traumatic brain injuries.
We need to educate the public, doctors, familes and survivors what these disabilites are. They are often misinterpreted and misdiagnosed because individuals are judged upon instead of understanding.
We need to educate survivors how to accept who they are now.
We need to motivate survivors, caregivers and family members to not give up and how we can all progress.

High school football is no joke. 3 high school kids died over the weekend on football related injury. Its not uncommon that 1 out of 3 kids will suffer an injury playing high school football.The NFL are recruiting kids and promising them a shot. Kids are hitting harder and the pressure of having a winning season is as important to the kids as well as the coaches. A winning season can launch the coach in a conversation to the next level of coaching in the college or even pro level. But at what cost?
Usual Occupation: Student. Kind of Business or Industry: High School. Immediate Cause of Death: Blunt impact injury of head. Place of Injury: Football Field.
The nexus of high school football and death trespasses too often on the mythic ethos of Friday night lights. Janes was a workhorse junior running back for Westfield/Brocton, a combined team from two small schools in western New York. He died in a Buffalo hospital three days after taking multiple hits to his head in a game Sept. 13, 2013. He was 16.
"No one should die playing the game they love," his mother told USA TODAY Sports.Join us in studio for this very important conversation.

The Real Face of Brain Injury
We talking the real face of brain injury like your mom or dad, your brother or sister, husband or wife. Brain Injury happens to anyone anytime. There is no face of brain injury it is invisible and we need to educate society that you cannot see a brain injury. All the time some organizations our looking for faces to touch peoples heart so that the organizations can touch peoples wallets. If they are successful the majority of people who live with a brain injury won’t fit the label and face they are trying so hard to establish for their bottom line.
So it is up to us survivors to counter this, to make sure people get to see the real face of brain injury. They need to see your face, hear your story. As hard and unfair as it is it is up to survivors. Only we can change our world and make no mistake there are great obstacles. Millions and millions of dollars are being put into branding the face of brain injury. And millions into studies to observe the obvious.
Tonight share your story, share your face. Share what you really want and need. And let us share what we can do to get the real face of brain injury into the hearts and minds of our community, into the people we love to help us hang on to those relationship. We must help people understand so that mean against all odds we must learn to understand this new person, and quickly. Together sharing our stories we can make tomorrow a day of our dreams
Are we too easy on our children or is cheating on tests in middle school justififable in certain cases? We all cheated in school and we turned out fine, right?
Are PSSAs and other middle school too much? Should the teachers in Atlanta be jailed for changing test scores?

Infidelity is one of the most heartbreaking of betrayals. It has a way of sneaking up on you and kicking the stool out from under you. It leaves you disoriented and scarred and you wander around wondering, “Why?”
Two emotions come into play when cheating occurs. The first is heartbreak. The second anger. It not only changes how you feel and view the other person but also yourself. And, we always blame. We blame him/her. We blame the person they cheated with. Or, we blame ourselves. "I'm not good enough...He's a dog...She's a backstabber". The list is endless.
At KEEN.com, we have not only heard every scenario known to man, but have walked thousands through this dark hallway and led them out of the fog. We can tell you what is real and what isn't and also give sage advice on how to proceed. Not all relationships end after infidelity, but they do change and isn't it better to be informed rather than fumble your way through the healing?
Thursday, October 1st from 7:00PM – 8:30PM PDT, KEEN Radio hosts, MsLisaM and Laura Brown, along with this weeks featured advisor from KEEN, Jane Wilcox, will be discussing why men and women step outside of the relationship, the pain and change that takes place afterward, and how to heal the self and/or the relationship so you can get to a better place.
Feel free to call in with your infidelity questions (657) 383-1952, or email us at email@example.com, or even tweet us @KeenPsychics. All questions will be reviewed and passed along to our hosts who will answer them for you live on air.
Why suffer or prolong the pain any longer? KEEN has the answers you seek.
