Many of us have hard days in life just as anyone else does but with a brain injury, coping strategies are hugely different.
Positive reinforcement may need to come from family, friends, and caregivers but how can we do it within ourselves?
Emotional impacts on the brain injured have a different level than the general public but it isn't impossible to achieve rewards through positive coping strategies. Let's discuss what we do to help, ideas what may be better, and alternative measures than medication.
We have a weekly conference call Mondays for anyone who would like to learn about brain injury and share their stories:

The Early Bird Midnight Special! - Dream Catcher - Les Paul
At 22 Years of age I was young and pre TBI. I was feeling very heathy and taking on the future like on like a Mad Man on a mission when an AVM in my brain that had been hiding quietly erupted like a violent Volcano in my Brain from Birth struck from deep within my Brain as fast as lightning as I Screamed for help collapsing to the cement floor of the Factory that I worked as the fire of the explosive Aneurism in my brain hit me with blunt and brutal Fury from deep within my Skull with murderous intent!
I had visons of both being a professional Moto Cross Racer and a singer song writer musician and yet there I was screaming in pain like never before fighting for my very existence. The Good News is I am still here alive and kick wiring many permeant battle scars and even though I had several more surgeries all over my brain I have lived long enough to be thankful for all the pain and even can say I feel blessed. How about you do you feel week tired and angry or do you view life through a different lens that say no matter what keep on moving and fight not only for your own Independence but as a freedom Fighter for Justus and good for all people with disabilities.
Tonight I’m calling my show the Midnight early Bird Special because in my mind I say it’s time to celebrate success and heck even failure if you dare to believe in your Dreams because failure is just another word for survivors who are inspired to go back jack and do it again and again until we find out yes indeed life is good and worth living if you only give you self a chance and fight for the future with all the gusto you can muster up!!!
We will Talk and chat tonight so be ready to share your stories and listen to some great Indi music because and life is good and well worth living here at Dream Catchers a place where people come to listen, Learn, talk, and feel like part of the community again!
Juliet Madsen has served in the US Army since she was 17-years old. She was involved in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield. While serving her country, Juliet suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and at least one stroke, which changed her life forever.
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!

I Remember – Hosted by Craig Sicilia
First off we want to thank all the veterans out there for their service, and our deepest gratitude for all the men and woman who have sacrificed for our freedoms. As a survivor a warrior in this epidemic so hidden that I don’t even know who I am a lot of the time. I remember all the loss of friends and family and especially myself, or at least my old self.
I am this new person who the people I used to love, don’t recognize, I still remember those times, but they have been over shadowed by the destruction of the old me and the pain as I formed this new person. In the realm of things I have learned to like this new me, this more sensitive person who truly cares for people.
And now something new has happened, a type of ptsd from all of the new friends that this new me has made in the last 9 years are dying all around me, the loss that I am feeling in my heart make it that I find myself struggling to care, struggling to go on. As I write this I am not sure I can but am trying. I never allowed myself to develop a person relationship, to fall in love, I would not allow it. Tonight we will explore how to cope with loss, share what we need to do to allow ourselves to love. Allow ourselves to live life again.
Join in let’s see if we can discover how this all works
How is your Memorial Day going? Solemn? Picnicing, or just being outside for Spring? In thought? Like ANY other day for your own 'Memorial TBI' - being quiet and alone. We certainly like those days, I well understand. Especially while listening to an old (ok, classic) Eagles song - "I get a peaceful, easy feeling..." But this is Indianapolis, and it's Race Day! It's anything but peaceful around here - and the Downtown Milton Studio is 50-miles away from THE Track. The Greatest Specical in Racing takes over then Month of May. As is liked to say - "Visit, enjoy yourself, spend your money and get the hell out of town."
I've learned to ignore most of the hoopla, it seems better for my stimuli. However, this is Indiana, and we grew up on Racing, er, Racin'. We have more tracks per capita than most countries do, let along states. Yes, there is a basketball court in all the parking lots, I'm sure. Brain Injury and Auto Racing go hand in hand (head on head?). Another reflection most Hoosiers and racing fans always have. It seemed to drift away. Personally, I know a large amount of 'backyard' racers whose weekend running laps is as well as dangerous as an explodinng IndyCar, to the skull. Blunt force be damned, remember, tremendous speeds also can cause "trememdous whiplash" which will effect the brain more than the neck. And these drivers? Neighbors, husbands (wifes), parents, thrill seekers and simply adults who grew up around the auto business. Competitiors. Kept at a level of performance that life has created. Let's meet one. Let's' also discuss Mt Lawn's donation to the HARD workers of the NC Miracle League Volunteers. And, Not to be overlooked is TMDS Med MJ Month. Listen, call.
On tonight's broadcast is Dr Jonathon Jagid. Dr.Jagid specializes in the field of stereotactic neurosurgery and movement disorders and is Neurosurgical Director of the Deep Brain Stimulation Program at the University of Miami
