It's October of 1993 in Hawaii. A drunk driver hurtles toward a bend in the road. From the opposite direction, accomplished advertising creative and triathlete Phil Slott takes a routine drive. As he eases into the bend, he meets the drunk driver skidding into the wrong lane and, in one second, Phil's life takes a dramatic turn. As he struggles to stay alive in the ICU, Phil's organs, bones, and much of his brain are broken. What he and everyone else come to realize is that his creative drive and passion remain intact. And these abilities serve as the foundation for his arduous yet inspiring road to recovery. This is more than his story. Written in collaboration with his wife, Mary Spears, Damage Control: A Brain Injury Survivor Helps You Beat the Odds, is a tough-love conversation and guide for those who have survived a traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is intended to help other survivors regain hope and quality of life. Available on AMAZON more info: http:// www.philslott.com. Welcome to another episode the Brain Injury Round Table. 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.

Most rear-end collisions are caused by distracted drivers or drivers following too closely to the car ahead. In either case, it is the unsuspecting driver in the car ahead who may suffer whiplash, which may result in a variety of injuries such as problems with light sensitivity, depth-perception problems, tinnitus, memory problems, concentration, and balance. The list goes on and on and on.
Deb Angus, brain injury survivor and author of “Regaining Consciousness: My Encounter with Mild Brain Injury--the Silent Epidemic," will share her story about how she and her husband were sitting at a stoplight and how a distracted driver 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!

Our guest tonight is Martha's daughter, Mia Dalene Marcum-McCoy, Her book Phenomenal Brain Power: from brain injury to brain awakening is an inspirational account of her journey to reclaim her life after a 2001 brain injury in a car vs bicycle collision. She recalls awakening to an altered sense of self and a need to fine meaning in the chaos that her orderly, purpose-driven life had become. Her dream-life took a bad turn on that fateful day in 2001. She was the epitome of the millennial woman; newly divorced, mother of two, bright well educated and well positioned to succeed in her career. An undiagnosed concussion turned her life upside down and turned it into a cruel caricature. Slowly and painfully she came to terms with the need to create a new dream, a new life and a new self. Phenomenal Brain Power is both a roadmap and journal of the trip of a lifetime.

For an Illusionist to fool the audience, their deceit must go unseen and to this end they craft an illusion to avert attention from reality. While the audience is entranced, the deceptive act is committed, and for the fool, reality then becomes inexplicably built upon on a lie. That is, until the fool wakes up and recognizes the truth in the fact that he has been duped. (Like "Santa Claus")
However, for some maintaining the suspension of disbelief in the illusion, is often more comforting than acknowledging being duped. Join the show tonight to discover the six top illusions most experience with not only a TBI but with LIFE as well and how you can start seeing things as they truly are: Glorious, Radiant and SPECTACULAR!

“Love is in Your Face” is my way to remember who I am in Christ. It epitomizes the fact that Love is a choice to be just like Father God through Christ. It is not contingent on others, but instead reflects the true essence of Father God himself. Since this is so, why do we love what Father God hates? This week we will identify Christian principles as either a MYTH or the TRUTH, according to the word of God. The Rose of Sharon Show is completely dedicated to Ephesians 4:15. We provide the knowledge that generates understanding and awareness for leading life 'as He (Jesus) is in this world" IAW 1 John 4:17.
