ALL PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN ABOUT BRAIN INJURY BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THEY HAPPEN.
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.
Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? David's story continues. (3rd/last segment)
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, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip 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!

Led Zepplin, and Roy Orbison as well found Communication Breakdown so important to share - they played songs about it! And, you listened!! Now, what was the song about? I thought you was listening! Did you not understand the song? Did you not understand what I just said? Hey - Do you ever listen to me!
Listen tonight, lets share a very frustrating situation between TBI and 'normal' society (yes, family counts too). In fact, we all have communication breakdowns, be it social, relationship, work or 'just hanging around' with the fella's. And though many of us Survivors are open ended, the closed mind of others occasionally break us down so, it's time to walk away or worse yet - argue. Let me share some ideas from a recent "Help Me Help You" education conference I atttended. Let you share some ideas of a recent communication breakdown, and let's work on it. I got a world full of interested brain injury survivors and caregivers to offer a hand. Let's talk. (424) 243-9540.
Melissa Meeps will stop by, and introduce a new segment on TMDS called "Meep's Peeps" and co-host Sam Way will drift in to explain his new segent "Sam's Way". Dr. Kevin Butterfield will drive in and out as well. We're talking about 'whatever' and of course, racing (gonna like this info). However, his agent didn't care for the name of his segment - "Butt's Nuts".
Lyrysa Smith talks about her book A Normal Life: A Sister’s Odyssey Through Brain Injury

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)

Fantastic Frank, born Frank R. Johnson, is the epitome of perseverance. As a young man, he was a successful chemical engineer and entrepreneur. One day while he was at the height of enjoying success, everything changed irreversibly when he was trapped in a fire, brought out in a body bag and his life changed forever. As a result, he incurred a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). It was necessary for him to re-learn everything; including how to walk and talk. Now he is motivated to inspire millions.
Every day Frank meets his challenges, and is fueled with a passion to help others with his engaging, creative manner which is awe inspiring to everyone he meets.
Some of Fantastic Frank’s significant accomplishments consist of publishing a comic book, “The Young Explorers ©” and as a motivational speaker, he captivates and touches audiences like no other. Frank is an internationally published author and the host of two BlogTalkRadio shows and he will show you how to overcome ANY obstacle.
Frank touches many people’s lives daily – let him touch yours.

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!

Yahya Bandele is the Founder and Chairman of The C.O.F.A.H Network and the Creator, writer and director of the best selling Documentary on amazon.com "Hebrew or the So-Called Negro" Yahya will discuss current events, history, science and Geo-politics from a scriptural Hebrew Ysralite scriptural perspective. We also encourage caller participation and feedback
Ladyholder and Keira will spend two hours throwing ideas back and forth to each other to create a Harry Potter Steampunk AU based on a plot bunny Keira accidently spawned during her previous radio show.
Chances that Keira will write this: 30%
You can call into listen but I doubt we'll have room for callers.
