    Childhood Brain Injuries: More Than a Bump on the Head

    in Education

    Children are at high risk for brain injuries. The fall off changing tables, they are dropped by parents and other loved ones they are unsteady on their feet and therefore tend to fall down and hurt their fragile developing brains. Because children are growing rapidly they make what is thought to be a fast recovery. However, while tissue and bones might heal quickly the altered brain may take a different track. The greatest difficulties become apparent when they reach adolescence and their hormones kick in and the worse, out of control behaviors begins. Our guest tonight suffered such an injury when he was 11 years old. Back then brain injury was very poorly understood and he and his family were cut adrift to learn as you go the mysteries of brain injury. Well, this kid and his family were put through the mill and he has just recently learned what went wrong and why. Join us tonight for a discussion of their experiences of brain injury and what the family and what the future has in store.

    Brain Injury Communication with Host Michael Idell/Paying the Bills

    in Education

    Brain Injury Radio Network does not only apply to survivors of brain injuries. Caregivers, family members, loved ones, medical professionals, advocates who want to make changes happen for survivors and the generally public who want to learn how to help others in need.


    Who decides when outpatient care is no longer needed, how an individual can not get any better, or when limitations run out? Many insurance companies cut off care for outpatient care after a limited amount of time. 


    There are many struggles that occur for anyone involved in the financial side of occurance after a brain injury. Unless there is a substantial lawsuit which takes place after, the largest battle aside from the recovery process is how are needs going to be met. For caregivers, when your life is put on hold to now cover the expenses for someone else aside from trying to take care of yourself or children in a family, now you may have an adult who can not manage these tasks on their own any longer. Unfortunately, home health aides are not in any position to take care of these personal needs. Who represents the injured?


    For a survivor, are handling financial tasks too much? Has your cognitive development had an impact on stress, money, relationships they can now trust in their lives and how things will be taken care of? What happens if an individual hasn't been so blessed to finally get approved for SSDI? Who represents the survivors after family has given up their relationships with the survivors? When disability insurance only covers 80% of medical costs (if any) how does a disabled individual know how to get supplemental insurance? How much does the brain injury community know where to go and who to talk to in each state or even locally in their area?

    No one would ever know, how sometimes seemingly small things can set into motion a emotional catastrophic series of events. How we can be emotionally and mentally destabilized in a flash!!

    Tonight 3 survivors will share their emotional and physical experiences with you. For name sake we will call this series of Straight OUTTA BRAIN INJURY - 
    "Stung, Warped & Fried" 

    We hope you will call in and share your experiences of to much, times where you felt mentally or emotionally in a freefall. we get it. As well we realize with management we can somewhat have control over these freefalls. 

    Our challenge is to have as few of these as we can, to recognize how to minimize them. Together we can learn to have a life far greater than we can imagine, so let us imagine this life together

  • Neurofibromatosis & Brain Impact on Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Health

    Cassey Blumenthal has Neurofibromatosis Type 1 as well as dyslexia which is common with NF. She was diagnosed at age 7 and currently there is no cure for neurofibromatosis. 


    Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in the nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors may develop anywhere in your nervous system, including in your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Neurofibromatosis is usually diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood. Dr Frederick Covington will join us to discuss therapies and assistive technology that he is creating. www.askdrcovington.com


    The tumors are usually (benign), but in some cases these tumors become cancerous. Effects of neurofibromatosis can range from hearing loss, learning impairment, and heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) complications to severe disability due to nerve compression by tumors, loss of vision and severe pain. Learn more about this disease that inflicts about 1 in 3000 people.


    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.

    Utley has been dealt, one of the two prospects has been named as Darnell Sweeney.  We get another toolsy prospect who has a chance to do something and all of the sudden our farm system is getting loaded which may cause the Phillies turnaround to be quicker than expected.  The Eagles and other teams have played an exhibition game and injuries and fights are beginning to pile up around the NFL.  We will also get into a bit of fantasy talk on how injuries may impact fantasy football drafts that are happening all over.  Plus Joel Embiid is officially getting surgery so we will discuss that.  Get ready because we are going live!
