Frustration, confusion and learning how to deal with those actions after a Traumatic Brain Injury. Good Luck! But there can be adjustments made, as we attempt to become "more pleasant" to be around (if we can be around them!). TBI's take your emotions, paranonia and distress, mix them in the same 'bag' only to of the shoulder. Folks get confused, of our actions, words and ideas (which are usually screwy at best) when stimuli takes control. We talk and talk, say things I doubt any one but the TBI speaker really understands. We are blessed around Indy, and its past time to share lesson's learned. BICS - brain injury coping skills. Now beginning to be offered world wide, I was of the first (and continuous) 'students' to graduate from the BICS - and and as learning to be a PEER Mentror was enrolled in several (6) more of the 20 week course of understanding. Caregivers by our side, we discuss, understand and learn ways (beyond strategys) to Cope With Every Day Life, at least at times. Are there slip ups? I don't know, how was YOUR morning? Did your TBI as get in the way of understanding?
Myself? Every day, all day long, even with traveling the path taught by the Dr.. Lisa Thompson Foundation 'Family Center' by Dr. Samantha Backhaus and others. I'll post some conversations of BICS, and probably touch on the 'new' Social Skills with a TBI research program. Group said I could. Listen in as various folks with a TBI discuss, learn and adjust. Why? Trust me, there is NO WHERE ELSE ON EARTH you can listen in. See, my social and coping skills aquired permission for such an offering. Learn. share but grab a pencil, to make "Mental Notes on Paper". Or, as my ol' buddy Landon Walker would sing "Give Me Love, And A Little Kindness"....
After a TBI, where Deb Palmer lost consciousness over asphalt, resulting in a subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage, she was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and major depression. She knew she fell and hit her head, that something was wrong, but didn’t know what. She kept thinking it would go away with more sleep. Nobody referred her to any resources for help or support. Doctors obviously weren’t trained on how to address the long-term sequelae of brain injury or how to help someone who has had one. Deb didn’t want what happened to her to happen to others.
Deb decided to turn anger into something constructive; and, with the help of other survivors and some professionals, published five free newsletters to educate about brain injury. The demand for the publication was greater than expected so she decided to form a nonprofit organization. Thus, the Brain Injury Connection (BIC) was born. www.braininjuryconnection.org

Did you ever daydream? I guess I should explain “daydreaming” to some of you if you have never heard the term. "Daydreaming" is like pretending, not in action but through thinking. It is thinking of something desired and making it as real as possible, feeling joy and a sense of accomplishment. Long before electronic gadgetry and “virtual” imaging games, the brain created virtual tours for imaginative individuals: children could fly and become fast running horses.
There is research evidence that imaginative people are more intelligent than those who are not. I recently read a story where Albert Einstein was asked “how can I become as smart as you?” and his answer was “read fairy tales”. When asked “how can I become smarter than you; he answered “read more fairy tales”. Well the inquirer was frustrated by such answers and thought disparaging thoughts. But I understand!
Fairy tales invite the reader to enter a make-believe world and entertain unusual thoughts. Such thinking stimulates different parts of the brain than routine activities. When the brain is stimulated, like a body-builder “working” his muscles, so does fantasy exercise the brain to expande it.To develop genius, the brain must be exercised.
There are a number of companies that are cashing in on this concept and selling subscriptions to “thinking” activities. It is good to know that everyone can improve his/her brain by setting aside time to daydream and ponders abstract concepts. It is important to engage children in “What if” games to get them thinking about less concrete things. Childhood should have wonderment and make-believe and their brains should be stimulated to grow. Imagination is the incubator for genius.

Welcome to another episode of Brain Injury Round Table. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of more than 30 years and Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com. At the suggestion of Mr Tai Campbell, of Taken Back Our Communities Now, http://www.tbocn.org, tonight’s show will look into the development of heightened feeling states following brain injury. Some such heightened feelings take the form of disturbances in the autonomic nervous system. The resulting condition is known as “hyper-arousal” and describes the effect of injury on things such as heart rate and respiration. Another aspect of heightened feeling states is sometimes seen as psychic or extra sensory abilities and in many instances is seen as a gift. Others in this category might feel undone by the sudden onset of such strange reveries and might find themselves pre-occupied by feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.
It is seldom addressed by members of the profession called upon to make us whole, to take us from the point of being "patients" to being people again. Therefore, tonight we’re going to take matters into our own hands. We’ll kick it around, swap stories and delve into another of those taboo topics associated with brain injury.
Join us for another exciting and informative episode of Disability Roundtable. thanks to all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, your mobile device wherever you are all around the world. Additionally, I’d like to give a big thank you to this show’s sponsors: Martha Marcum, mother of a brain injury survivor and author of MARTHA'S FABLES and Gordon Johnson, attorney of TBI Law.com. Additionally, we look forward to welcoming another sponsor Mia Marcum McCoy, brain injury survivor and author of a brain injury book that she will speak with us about on a future episode.

Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God is a New York Times bestseller from Timothy Keller - the celebrated founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church. Offering a fresh perspective on an age-old practice in Prayer, Keller addresses questions about our conversations with the divine that scholars from the twelve disciples to C.S. Lewis to Flannery O’Connor have all grappled with, including: How often should we pray—and what should we say? Why do some prayers go unanswered?”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Timothy Keller is the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, which he started in 1989 with his wife, Kathy, and three young sons. For over twenty years he has led a diverse congregation of young professionals that has grown to a weekly attendance of over 5,000.
Tonight's special guest is Bruce Muzik, Relationship coach.
Bruce is an internationally respected relationship coach. He is passionate about helping couples fix their troubled marriages and has a reputation for being the guy relationship counsellors refer their toughest clients to.
Bruce believes most couples already know how to communicate, but have never learned how to connect securely and safely.
He says, "Instead of trying to resolve a couple's relationship issues by talking about them, first I focus on helping them connect like they did when they were falling in love. Only then will talking resolve anything."
At heart, Bruce is a romantic and has always been deeply fascinated with human behavior … particularly the bond that occurs between people in committed relationships.
Direct experience working with hundreds of couples each month has confirmed his belief that even the “hopeless case” relationships can be saved with a dose of loving connection, empathy and understanding.
To find out more about Bruce's work and get free instructional videos on how to stop fighting, get connected and start on the road to a new life together, visit Bruce's website, www.LoveAtFirstFight.com.
