THIS WEEK: Draft Day 2015
Ever notice, the day before our LIVES change forever, feels like an ordinary day? In the NFL, it has been said, "You only get drafted once in your life.", kind of like the military too. However, for those of us with TBI's, we already know, we can get 'drafted' multiple times, (w/another TBI) if we're not PAYING ATTENTION. No matter what we do, there are two kinds of peole in this World, Those of us with Brain Injuries and those who haven't gotten them yet. You could be drafted next...(or again) Driving down the road, riding your bicycle, hiking, skiing, skating, or any one of a thousand different things Mankind has adopted into society. ARE YOU PREPARED TO BE DRAFTED?
We can not change the fact we've acquired a Brain Injury, but tonight on WTF?, Kevin & the Marvelous Maggie will share a new perspective on how you can start creating a FUNctional LIFE again and have FUN doing it. If not, WTF?
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)
After TBI and other disabilities happen do I have a choice? Well get up off of yor TBI and do something about your life if you can because that’s a big part of the struggle and for you and I to decide but for me as far as I’m more concerned it’s what we do with what we still have that matters not what we have lost!!!
So get up off of your TBI and live!!! Do survivors have struggled oh yes we do, does that mean quit? Well that’s what many people have done sat on the sidelines for many years lost in the fog, waiting for someone else to do it for us when in reality it us that has to do if we want real change to happen!
Strategies for success are:
Believe in More Than Just Yourself
Do the Impossible Daily
Helping Others When You Don’t Feel like Helping Yourself
Positive Self Talk and Miracles
Getting up and Living Life Because It’s the Right Thing to Do
Questions, Answers, Open Floor and Open Mic This Is Your Chance to Make It Real. So Call in Tonight and Share Your Dreams and Your Stories and Help Other Survivors along the Way and We Do This Because It’s Hard Not Easy!!!

Join Tonia this Monday evening on Brain Injury Radio and her guest: Dr. Tom Berquist from the Mayo Clinic. We will be discussing Cognitive Outpatient Rehabilitation. This will be our 11th show of the year! Join our conversation from 5:00 – 6:30 PM on September 8, 2014. Call in with your questions or just listen in.
Our # is: (424) 423-9540
Join Tonia tonight and her guests are Paula Daontis from the California Brain Injury Association sharing with us whats going on with the Brain Injury Associations. Then Carol Leish who created a game for people with TBI called "Capable." Join Tonia tonight and call in, a great and informative show as always.
Back to basics. I find our TBI-selves "too smart" at times, to directional, to advanced, to authoritive on what we "assume" we know. Uh, in 2008, for several months - I did not even know my name (other than Matt). So, I can only assume, I really didn't, or don't, know much. With as much time I've been spending learning to live again? How could I?
But I have learned an avenue of TBI Recovery, and study TBI Awareness. OK, promote TBI Awareness. Why? From any angle of a brain injury, if you don't at least understand why this world needs awareness, then you must be greatly lost. Help us save the world tonight. Explain just WHAT your TBI is Aware of...
I hope to bring God into the picture tonight as well. Afterall, its Sunday, plus I met a new friend this week. Plus, baseball and racinig IS God's way. TBI Survival? YOU tell me...
Now then, is it August yet? Has anyone seen my vacation? **whistle** "here boy"
(424) 243-9540 and press #1 upon recorded answer. I have a habit of making everyone 'share'; 'hand up' or not...
Living with Hope After a TBI with Tonia Wittkower. Join Tonia this Monday evening, June 9th from 5:00-6:30 PM and the topic of discussion is sports injuries, focusing on TBI. Tonia’s guest will be Dr. Kim Gordens. Dr. Gordens is a renowned Professor in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of Denver. She teaches the Psychophysiology and Clinical Neuropsychology sequence at the doctoral level, manages a portfolio of TBI-related research, and has lectured extensively on those issues (including a 2010 TED talk on youth sports concussion, several NPR spots and an interview on CNN with Anderson Cooper). She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology and is board certified in Rehabilitation Psychology. In other words, she knows her stuff, especially when it comes to sports head trauma, mostly football.
TMDS, BIRN, TBI Survivors Network, Race4Time, The Brain Injury Association of America, The Brain Injury Association of Indiana, Breathless Performance Racing, John Mills Racing, 'Over The Wall' host Jean Kinser Dana, Dr. Kevin Butterfield, Ernie Francis, "the remarkable" Ernie Ty Francis Jr (Trans Am Champ now, and future NASCAR Champion - I called it) have united to 'form' an auto racing 'team' to promote Brain Injury Awareness (I'll slide Recovery in, eventually...).
TOO COOL, and so needed. The intent is to provide information, discuss TBI with fellow Survivors who literally "banged their head against a wall", bring our everyday Brain Injury Family to the race tracks, meet the drivers and be guests, promote 'Guest Passes' to events for donors, and, well, much much MUCH more. BI Awareness where it needs to be - Racing, of the most popular sports world wide. The NFL can avoid the serious condition with a marketing 'ploy' all they want, but Racin' is the true 'game' across International Date Lines.
Join me tonight, and of course Sam Way, as we sit down with the Francis's and discuss racing, BI's and the future of Awareness. Doc and Jean are expected to join in, and share a lot of good news. Have I mentioned South Africa? Gina Gee is literally prancing around the Cape, awaiting a Skype call in tonight. Me too. She's an Angel of Hope, Mercy and Life. Not as is, but as will be. Uh, my staff of "one" currently has been a bit over worked this week. It's Water Ski time for RHI Sports this week approaching, as is time with Dr. Dawn Neumann and the new IU Interface Program of Imagining Research. Plus, its Father's Day, and Pop and I always go to a baseball game if possible.
So, take me out to the ballgame, and bring me back in time for Racin' tonight.
TBI Toxic Wasteland Electric Magnetic Radiation Concerns on Dream Catchers with Les Paul
Is America going to become a Toxic waste land or a place of peace and harmony amoung survivors. That is the question.
I never dreamed that I would be saying I never dreamed that this would happen over and over again whatever the subject so many times in the so called modern world. Or is it how can it be truly a modern world. When there are so many problems, so many people living in desperate poverty, so many survivors struggling and crying out for help what are we to do? Well join me Tonight and we will work on ways to do just that Together!
When the foods we eat are being genetically altered, their DNA being mixed with other life forms and creatures large and small being pumped full of chemicals all in the name of humanity and science what are we to doing to our planet?
When you go organic you passed hefty price to eat a healthy meal to try to protect yourself and your family and friends you buy as natural as you can even though more than 75% of all food are genetically altered!
Yes, the future is here and sadly we have arrived, but take a chance and dream with me of a day when normal is the normal and natural is the natural and homeopathic medicine is given a chance versus experimental medications that can harm you.
Join me tonight and be part of the discussion and help be part of the solution because we are what we eat and if were eating unnatural foods that were never meant to be mixed with other foods genetically modified or altered in any way sounds dangerous to me.
We need healthy foods in a healthy environment using natural ingredients, seeds, and natural pesticides to live a healthy more abundant and beautiful life. So join me on dream catchers as we search for the cure and clues to the answer to live a more abundant healthy beautiful life and heal our planet at the same time! I hear him
Join Tonia and her guests... You! The questions for our show tonight is for people who have experienced a tbi: How can we, people with tbi, communicate with non-tbiers what our needs are? I also want to hear what issues are important to you, so I can make sure I include them on future shows. I hope we can have a lively discussion. Let’s help each other, share experiences and give ideas that have work and not worked for you. Please call in with your questions, comments and answers to tonights questions!
An Urgent call went out..we had a Missing War Fighter in Idaho. Little did anyone know at the time, it would change several peoples lives , and inspire them to never let another Warfighter go missing without us Stepping in and going into action to find them. Erik Jorgensen sent his family a heartbreaking text from his phone, indicating that he wanted to end his life. He was suffering from PTS and TBI at the time. His Battle with the PTS and TBI was wearing him down, and he felt like he could not take it for one more day. Several Warfighter groups, organizations, and individuals, all pulled together to strategise a search to find him in time. His family was en route from California and we needed to take action. Several road blocks were thrown up and hindered our efforts to find Erik. Law Enforcement refused to work with us and to put a search party together. They hindered media covering the case, and we were left to our own devices. Several outside Organizations pulled together along with members of the community, and we went to work. Through the weekend, several areas were covered, and people scurried through the Mountains, and through areas that they thought he may have went. We were only able to get 1 news Media to cover the case and to let the Community know that one of Warfighters were missing. Fliers blanketed the town, and all efforts were made to find Erik in time... BUT we were to late. On this Show, we have Erik's Mother Cindy joining us to give you an amazing insight to who Erik was as a person, his passion, his struggles and more. We vowed to never let Erik's death go in vein and worked together to create a bill to change the laws so that we are able to help others live and not meet the same fate as Erik. Also on the show, 2 special guests about the programs and support system that is out there right now for our Battles in Distress and also many other resources come from Warrior Pointe.
