Are you a high level brain injury survivor and no one can see your disability or impairments? No one understands the effects of cognitive impairments like impulse control, frustration, PTSD, overstimulation of the senses, or what it is like taking time to think things out and process? Do you wonder if you are able to go out back into the work force? We have a number of people who are in these positions. Where do we go? Who do we talk to?
Join in on this radio show so we can discuss how to approach this problem. Educate yourselves, educate others, help people become aware.
How does family view brain injury? Please call in to discuss your experiences.
If you aren't a survivor, do you know someone who had a stroke, tumor, or head injury?
Did you understand? How did you handle it? Could you treat them like a "normal" person? Did your opinion change about who they are? Do you find yourself giving them a label?
Are you a survivor who has a family that gave up on you? Are they tired of hearing about it? Do they feel you cry about it too much? Do you want to find family counseling? Do they need to learn? How many other brain injury survivors do they know?
Lets work together on educating each other and building awareness as a survivor, from a caregiver's perspective, and professionally.
September 11, 2001 signaled a day of everlasting change for most of America. When we had our brain injuries, that process of ongoing grief and change, happened for us too. In both cases, many suffer not only from their injuries, but PTSD as well. Please call in tonight on this Eve of 9-11, when many of us revisit our grief from the country's tragedy, to those of our own. Collective mourning lends itself to support, and frees us from the isolation, we so often seek. It was 14 years ago that 9-11 happened. For me, 19 years since my brain injury. Too often we are told by others, or believe ourselves, that we should be done feeling the sting of our mourning this far down the road. Reality shows us, that recovery is process, with many triggers on the road, reminding us of the day(s) that changed us forever.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. 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.
Some nights we will have a featured guest, others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!

I still remember like it is the first time, reaching out to find other only to find out there is more than you could ever imagine, all the pain and suffering people have gone thorough that didn't have to be.. I cannot express how proud I am to be part of this kind of movement, yes i said it movement.
People can like it or not survivors of all kinds of brain stuff are networking, connecting changing the world and the support survivors get. We are everywhere and everybody all races and sexual preferences. We are the heart and soul of the world and in no one catagory but yet in every catagory or label.
I want to boast the hosts, there is over a 1000 episodes that have been produced recordedd and archieved for future survivors. A person could start listening today and listen for 6 months straight with out a blank second and people do.
Tonight is a celebration of all the hosts, present and hosts gone by, i hope they all come to our online birthday party and share a little about what it means to be part of this movement unlike any other. the movement to exsist and be who we are. We are the warriors of brain injury and your not alone come and listen to our voice, there is hope and the hope is all of us changing this silent epidemic of where we don't exsist. We are survivors of many different kinds of brain stuff, hear our voice, hear us roar!!!!!!!!

Officially unofficial (but real close) TMDS begins its 3rd season this week. See? Unrealilstic Belief is still dominating my life!!!
Such as a TBI, where has the time flown by? Wasn't it just last week we started this show? Over 100 episodes, 109 at last count. Thank you all, for allowing me into your life. I mean, I look to do well, and do mean well - always. Get confused still? God, I HOPE that's the TBI problem - for if it isn't, now I'm really confused!!!
As in the past opening acts of a new season on BIRN, we'll start by visiting the Annual TBI Suvivors Education Conference presented by the Indiana Brain Injury Association. Lora Miller has provided a wonderful effort towards education for and of brain injury's with Education in the forefront. Social moments, perhaps not the gathering of old, but available and will be worked on. Trust me, she's on my speed dial!!! But, hosted on the campus of Methodist Hospital in downtown Indianapolils is an elaborate and one of 18-model Neuroscience Research Buildings nation-wide, the focus was indeed on BI's and information. National speakers was of the best of their trades. Listen in tonight, we'll play an offering or three. OUR TBI Race team that wasn't in Utah for the World Championships also attended, with John MIlls stealing the show (he looks like Richard Gere) and hearts of insperation, and TMDS Medical Director Kevin Butterfield greeting, and surely I did something our presentations kicked off in a big way.
I indeed talked to Olivia Keith, daughter of TBI Survivor Darcy Keith and now Miss PreTeen Indiana. More too. We'll touch on what we have time for, and welcome back Sam Way. But what I'd rather take the time for is you, your thoughts, your aspirations of a greater TBI world in which we live...
Open Mic Night to share your positive memories of Brain Injury Radio as we kick off the week of our 4th Anniversary! In addition, I would like to hear your happy jokes, ancedotes, goals, and desires. Last week, I covered grief and mourning. Like it or not, those are also elements on a path of recovery. This week, we explore the other side of the coin. I also have several new Indie Artists to play, as well as your favorite requests. And YOU bring ME a side splitting joke! (BYOJ) :)
Music and humor have long been demonstrated to be uplifting and useful tools in recovery. Be it a simple smile, or a belly laugh; a pretty little ditty, or a tune that stirs the smiles and memory. Of course I'll have some facts to back that up or, you guys will demonstrate how that works in practice.
We are all resposibilty for making our own good times, by the tone of our attitude. Bring your happy face, and pay it forward to tonight...Or, just sit back and chill to a myriad of tunes, guaranteed to stoke the attitudes and put you in the mood to party down! Let's turn that frown, upside down tonight and rock on!

In 2005 Ilene Meckley was hit head on by an 18 wheeler truck. Ilene narrowly survived the terrifying crash. Ilene spent 5 1/2 months in the hospital. Doctors told her family she may not survive. Then they said they didn't know if she would be able to walk again. Ilene decided, "I will walk again." She made the decision that she would do everything she possibly could do to walk again. Her determination helped that to happen.
Ilene used every ounce of her strength to make sure she would walk again. After being in the hospital for four months, Ilene was only able to take a couple of steps. Ilene used a walker and wheelchair for a couple years after leaving the hospital. Ilene refused to give up her career of helping others and each day she grew even more determined, making a promise to herself that she would not only walk again, she would return to her passion of helping others. Ilene is dedicated to her career of sharing and teaching others her secrets of success.
