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:

This radio show for family members, caregivers, doctors, nuerologists and public awareness!
What do you know about them?
Are you waiting for yours?
Do you know how to handle a brain injury?
What are you doing to learn?
When are you going to understand?
What are you doing now?
When family members, caregivers, loved ones, and significant others give up helping, where do you go? Outpatient services don't help unless insurance is involved. Medical staff in communities nationwide misdiagnose, brush off, discharge or don't treat brain injuries survivors when they come in about ailments due to their brain injury. They state it's all in their mind, nothing is really wrong. When do medical professionals get involved with unpaid, volunteer community outreach for those involved with brain injuries in the community to understand? Why don't medical staff get involved with support groups on a voluntary basis? How many times do family members and old friends tell a brain injury survivor to get over yourself and stop faking the injury? EVERYDAY! They don't realize anything till it happens to them. Then it's too late.
HOW CAN THIS BE FIXED? START SUPPORTING YOUR NON-PROFIT BRAIN INJURY SUPPORT GROUPS. HELP ADVOCATE ABOUT WHO THE GROUPS ARE. SPREAD THE WORD. GET INVOLVED WITH MEETINGS AND CONFERENCES. CONTRIBUTE YOUR TIME.

The Dark Side of Brain Injury
Hosted by: Craig Sicilia
Brain Injury has created new opportunities and a new conciseness that I could have never imagined. It brought a different kind of hope and salvation. As good a person as I might have been before my brain injury I don’t think the gates of heaven would have been open to me, and even now I have things that need to be let go.
All of these major changes came with a cost, a huge cost that as well I could not imagine. To lose all that I was in such a rapid destruction of who I was. Lost my marriage, friends, job, home and myself. It shock my faith and challenged everything I once believed to be fact, or at least my fact.
And now to live a life as this new person, on what seems to be a personally lonely road, though I am incredible social I find myself very much alone at times I wish I wasn’t. I find my opinions and goals in conflict with many. But at the same time I believe I have learned to see the value in everyone. Even though I am learning not everyone can play in the sandbox or should play in it.
This show will explore some of those dark lonely times, those times for the good of this cause I would spend in solitude never allowing myself to get to close to someone. The price and the rewards, the pain and the joy. I know many have similar stories to share I invite you on to share your dark times and more importantly the tools to move beyond those dark times.
Horrace Walpole was noted for sharing, "LIFE is a tragedy for those who feel but a comedy for those who THINK!" LIFE after a brain injury, for those who've endured such things, can be anything BUT a comedy. For most it is a TRAGEDY in the beginning, with questions of 'why and or how' could this have happened. Which ultimately lead to bigger questions of "What to do now?"
What would you do if you could improve your circumstances? Would the end result be a COMEDY? Join Kevin tonight for Part Deux as he continues to share 13 Unique strategies he's developed over the past 12 years of LIFE with at Traumatic Brain Injury that anyone can employ and immediately start improving their circumstances, regardless of what they may be.

Any type of abnormal brain function is a brain injury. PTSD, multiple sclerosis, hydrocephalus, strokes, tumors, anoxia, neuromuscular disorders such as transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome or related neurologic conditions are all types of brain injuries of different kinds, along with traumatic brain injuries.
We need to educate the public, doctors, familes and survivors what these disabilites are. They are often misinterpreted and misdiagnosed because individuals are judged upon instead of understanding.
We need to educate survivors how to accept who they are now.
We need to motivate survivors, caregivers and family members to not give up and how we can all progress.
Please join our calls online and by phone.

September has been Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month
Maria Micheletto had a rude awakening in October 2006. Many of us think we had no warning, but in retrospect it appear some signs were already simmering. On the 23rd though, there was no doubt there was a very serious situation at hand, when Maria was struck in the head with a pain like no other - It literally brought her to her knees. Scary to me, is that she was initially misdiagnosed as I had been in 1995! There is an untold hell, when you are in blinding pain relying the experts, and you know they are failing you. Not all hospitals are created equal. Join us for Maria's journey, from the brink of death to a new career in the Neuro ICU.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. 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.
The front half of show is a featured guest. to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire!
