STEPS OF ISOLATION
WITH: Craig Sicilia and Special Co-host Cheryl Green
Thanksgiving not only is the beginning to Black Friday but the beginning for many to a dark, harsh hell. So much pain and regret for many as well as disappointment of epic proportions. So much so that many find it hard to trust and reach out to others little alone accept anything from any one.
As televisions blasts shows about family and friendship and the good old days, this brings so many reminders of losses not only in our friends and family but our own personal communities. And this is just one of many emotions going through someone’s head who has survived a brain injury. Then you add the fact of those organizations who profit and say they serve us really don’t want much to do with us unless it makes them look good or profit they bottom line or on some spreadsheet representing data so they can make more money off our pain and injury
Then adding in that 80% plus of those living with a brain injury are brought into poverty and kept there, and as their children hope for great gifts (as seen on tv) this emotional toll puts the weight of the world on their shoulders and weighs their heart down to a deep dark place. The miracle is that any of us that go through this is we make it through, but at what cost.
We must step out, reach out and find out, a life that has purpose and sustaining purpose for it is truly that purpose that gets each of us through this time.
Join us with your ways of dealing with this, the struggles, the successes the story..
We hope you've all enjoyed your holiday season, and that you topped it off with the Merriest Christmas you could muster. We hope you found joy, peace and gratitude in your day.
There are new 4th Thursday of each month hosts starting for the new year, but we covered and are covering for them back on Thanksgiving, and this Christmas night. The old salts who believe we should leave the lights on for the compromised in need/want...Live, not Memorex at times like these! None of us are alone.
Call in and share YOUR reflections of this holiday season. How did it compare to others? Where was YOUR head in the game? Was your Christmas Merry? Did you give or receive something special or memorable? Did you feel sad, happy or a combination of both?
One person with a dream come true is a past guest of mine from a Special Saturday Edition show on October 25th called Knock Out. My guest Tim, was anxiously awaiting the release of his book and website for Life Interrupted: The Tim Bransfield Story.

Holidays are a hard time for many survivors, alot of the survivors I have met have lost most of their relationships, careers, homes and any real connection to a community. So the season being a time were people focus on memories of the past it can be a realy hard thing. And not always is the the most recent that struggles the most. What realy seems to be a difficult situation is not the loss but our hardened selfs that close the world out to ourselves.
We create this cycle of hell, and the holidays seem to be the center of it all to many. I like many just struggle to make it through this time of year. We have to shed our losses, and it everyones fault ours included but the new us, the new me have to find a way to feel the glow of life beeming through our bodies. We may have hard momments, days or weeks but keep trying to see the ray of hope, its all we have never lose faith.
Tonight's Episode of my regular Wednesday night show will start 30 minutes late. This happens to be the night our extended family has celebrated Christmas (dinnner & gift exchange at my folks), for all of my life. Things are already starting to change, and by next year will change dramatically. This year is not the one to rush through. This is one of those "savor the moments" times. I'm going to try my best to do that. If I make it home early, will start the show.
On Christmas Day it'll be the first holiday celebrated in our new home. A lot has changed in the last year. We don't entertain much, and haven't really at all at this new home; Unless you count work men! Now THOSE we've had plenty of!! Our new 4th Thurs hosts weren't up to starting on Christmas, so I'll be back hopefully with a few other hosts.

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
