    WTF? - w/Kevin A. Phillips - Illusions of a TBI

    in Self Help

    For an Illusionist to fool the audience, their deceit must go unseen and to this end they craft an illusion to avert attention from reality. While the audience is entranced, the deceptive act is committed, and for the fool, reality then becomes inexplicably built upon on a lie. That is, until the fool wakes up and recognizes the truth in the fact that he has been duped. (Like "Santa Claus")


    However, for some maintaining the suspension of disbelief in the illusion, is often more comforting than acknowledging being duped. Join the show tonight to discover the six top illusions most experience with not only  a TBI but with LIFE as well and how you can start seeing things as they truly are: Glorious, Radiant and SPECTACULAR!

    TBI DAD

    in Health

    I am Dr. Steve Cagen - TBI DAD.
    In May of 2007, my the 17 year old duaghter suffered a severe traumatic brain injury in an auto accident and life has never been the same.
    We have had to learn many things along the way to Full Recovery (our personal mantra) and we would like to share them with you.
    We are TBI advocates, not because that was our career, it is because we were forced to be. 
    On this program and our website, we offer advice to other parents and care givers of children with TBI's on every subject that will help them get life back on track, deal with doctors and hospitals, new therapys, support grounds and how to maintain sanity.
    The "system" has put up roadblocks every chance they have in order to stop our progress or deny my daughter the benefits she is due and in desparate need of. This has forced us to become true advocates.
    Let us show you:
    How to become an advocate from day one - this is extremely important. How to deal with doctors inside and outside of the hospital setting. How to keep your loved one safe inside of the hospital - this may be harder than you think. How to find benefits and deal with government workers. How to file for SSI How to choose an attorney. How to become an expert record keeper - very important. How to document for success How to keep yourself sane. How to choose therapies which work. and much, much more. Our members are families just like yours who have experienced the horror of a child with a TBI.
    We are not lawyers looking for your business, we are parents and our kids are injured.
    We have beat the system and we want to show you how we did it.

    WTF? - w/Kevin A. Phillips - Interview with a TBI TEEN!

    in Self Help

    Most Parents would prefer no harm come to their children and most will do what they can to curtail it. In the event some harm does come, we're often the first to respond with corrective actions. But what happens when we get a TBI? What happens to the protective instinct with a child with a Brain Injury who has a 'misfire'? LIFE for most teens can be overwhelming as it is, between the public schools sytem, social cliques, stero-types and the unlimited amount of information that gets tossed out there each day. 

    Join us tonight as we interview a very special and unique TBI THRIVER Teen and what she has learned about creating a more FUNcational LIFE, in spite of her Brain Injury. Call in and listen LIVE @424.243.9540 and share your success or questions. You never know who will be listening and how your question or story can help inspire others.

    TBI: Chip on the Shoulder or Start of a Journey? Dream Catchers with Les Paul

    in Motivation

    Since I work and interact with a lot people with TBI survivors I have met many kinds of people who feel life has been so hard and rugged on them that they just want to give up, yet on the other hand I have met others that are struggling to take their next breath and can still smile and that’s because every single TBI is different.



    A chip on your Shoulder

    Stop the discrimination

    Empowerment, Justice, inclusion

    Working together

    Loving our differences

    Accepting ourselves

    Pain and panic

    Love and peace

    Open floor-open mic

    Victory


    I am hoping that even if you have a chip on your shoulder that tonight we will all come together on the Brain Injury Radio Network, TBISN, the Brain Injury Association of America and start a dialog to consider our options to help us all come together as the United voce for making the biggest difference in history to create a real power house team of survivors and teams of people willing to show up and be counted and forever change the history of Brain Injury peer support and advocacy forever 2015 truly will be a great year of change if we all come together!!!!

    The Science of Happiness/A TBI Survivor who gives back

    in Health

    My name is Lori Purdy Faitel,I am a Traumatic Brain Injury/TBI Survivor. And I am your host for THE SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS.I suffered a TBI many years ago, when I was 24 years old. As I speak to you I am 52 years old and very happy to share my age. Like many of us survivors of brain injury; I was clinically dead 3 times so…. it is proper to tell that I almost did not live to be 25, which makes being over 50 a blessing!


        Back in the day, everything in my life was a dream come true. I was almost 25 years old, had a recent promotion in business which inspired me with dreams for my future. I was attending college at night, I had recently moved out of my parents home for the first time, I had many friends and I was on the fast track to a future of my dreams with the man I had been in love with, for about 5 years. THEN on a beautiful sunny spring morning as I drove on the freeway to my job a construction truck dropped bales of hay onto my windshield causing me to lose control of my car, spinning off the road and into cement construction material. From that point forward my dreams were taken away. I was diagnosed with a TBI, in a mild coma for 7 days and it took about 6 years of therapy and extensive study before I was able to function like an adult again. I understand that the world is not filled with happiness; But for an hour or so lets concentrate on things that help to create happiness.


        My guest on Wednesday will be Tonia Wittkower. She is a TBI survivor who works, is married, hosts a radio show and has made a movie/documentary of how to continue to live her life with a TBI. Lets hear insights from someone who has achieved satisfaction in life and uses her talents to help others.

    WTF? - w/Kevin A. Phillips - TBI Divergent

    A Divergent is one tending to be different or develop in different directions. Welcome to MyTBILIFE! Since acquiring your TBI, how many different directions have you discovered or developed? Are you still doing what you did before your brain injury or have you developed a new talent or skill? Has your employment opportunities changed? Have you discovered so many, you still haven't found your 'niche'? Join us tonight as we discuss some of the various changes a Brain Injury has not only on the recipient but the Family and Friends and how Together Everyone Achieves Miracles.

    Tune in this week to add another perspective to your daily repertoire.  If there is something in particular you would like to hear Kevin discuss, join us on Fridays and share in the chat room with the "Marvelous Maggie" (Kevin's 24/7 Partner and Professional Care Assistant)
