SORT BY Relevancy
Denial is an unrealistic hope that a problem is not really happening and will go away by itself.
We all have a natural inclination to rearrange our experiences to fit a positive image of ourselves. This manipulation allows us to preserve our personal integrity, and makes us feel secure. It goes on undetected because it takes place in the private corners of your mind.
When the demands of life require capabilities that seem to exceed our resources, when we feel the threat of loss and exposure, we experience anxiety. In an effort to avoid the pain of anxiety, we practice the deceptive art of denial.
Denial is an unrealistic hope that a problem is not really happening, and will go away of itself. It is an attempt to put distance between ourselves and our experience, and protect ourselves from the threat of danger. In its many forms, denial acts like a pain reliever. The practice of denial is an attempt to ease the discomfort of anxiety by a subtle and ingenious twist of attention.
Denial can become your worst enemy. It diverts your attention, and decreases your mental efficiency by way of trade off. As long as you refuse to accept the truth of your situation, you must of necessity, refuse to give it your attention. Instead you will pay attention to every possible manner of distraction you can employ to support your denial.
Are You Guilty Of Deceiving Yourself?

When Jeannette Davidson-Mayer’s husband, DeWayne, had five brain injuries - the result of his active duty in Iraq - Jeannette became his caregiver. To combat this 24-hour job, Jeannette redesigned her kitchen to become the family’s “Central Command Post." Jeannette will discuss how she, DeWayne, and their daughter make this system work for them.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

When you have a brain injury EVERYTHING changes for you. Doesn't seem the world feels that way...or is that exactly what it is?...what it seems? We may never know! But we have an hour and a half to really think about what this brain injury means for us, the people around us and most important, our future? Who am I now? Who was I then? When can I stop using so many question marks??? Lets try to figure this out then...
Welcome to another episode the Brain Injury Roundtable. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of 32 years; author of the original brain injury owner's manual entitled From The Ashes.

The Brain Injury Roundtable is a place for Ideas, discussion, and recovery for people seeking solutions, to bridge the gap between understanding brain injury and insights on how to change live for the better so be prepared to hear some great information to motivate and inspire us and change the world. The main reason we are tackling this topic this evening is that even a seemingly minor concussion can have life-long, life altering consequences. And that is the topic of tonight's discussion. The plan is to learn from one another and to educate one another about TBI and its aftermath. We know personally just how a traumatic even a concussion can be.

New Thought teaches that a change in conciousness can change the world. But what exactly is conciousness, and how does it bring these changes from thought into reality?
The mystery of consciousness--whether or not the quality of awareness arises from the material brain or is a non-material "spark" separate from, but acting in cooperation with the brain--has been investigated by every branch of human inquiry. Yet we're no closer to a difinitive answer today than we were three thousand years ago.
This episode continues a series of discussions concerning consciousness. We'll look at Buddhist ideas, quantum models of consciousness, the materialist or functionalist model, and much more. Listeners are encouraged to call in to join the discussion (657) 383-0525 press "1" to speak with the host.
