    Recovery Now...Parkinson's Disease After Brain Trauma

    in Health

    My guest tonight is Dr. Robert Kuvent, who spent his career as an accomplished foot and ankle surgeon. He's served in at least nine Podiatric professional affiliations, and held positions in sixteen varied service organizations. To say he was a "Type A" personality, with an exceptionally busy life is an understatement. Then things changed, when his life was turned upside down with a disconcerting diagnosis. PD, like most other disabling conditions, not only takes a toll on the patient...But their family as well. Dr. Kuvent will be the host of a program called "Shaken Not Stirred" about PD, in our new line up of two hour programs starting in August. He will be on every other Wednesday night to help raise awareness and hope for those whose lives have been touched by Parkinson's.
    Most sources now acknowledge that PD can become a long term effect of people who have suffered previous brain trauma, like the CDC and NIH.
    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.
    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.  :)

On this episode, Dr. Ron Ruden joined Michele to offer insights and research into the brain and trauma. From how trauma embeds itself in our brains to how it affects our personalities, Dr. Ruden shared insights that may propel you faster and further on the road to recovery.


    Michele Rosenthal is a popular keynote speaker, award-winning author and post-trauma coach.

    Freedom For All - The Empowerment Zone - Les Paul Morgan

    in Motivation

     Freedom For All - The Empowerment Zone - Les Paul Morgan


    It emphasizes the empowerment of individuals with disabilities to take control of their lives to the maximum extent possible. The person isn’t a patient, but a consumer that controls the services that are consumed. When I created the empowerment zone, and disability round table shows I had some of the things I was talking about such as an International Network which is a much larger venue to share the independent living movements mission statements to people all around the world so that true inclusion for all would no longer just be a dream but instead a reality!!!


    That’s the hope and reason I wanted to create this series of shows to expand everyone’s knowledge including my own for the greater good of society, much as great leaders Martin Luther King, Ed Roberts, Justin Dart, Judy Heumann, and oh so many more unsung heroes of the independent living movement have done!


    Tonight I sit here two days from the edge of eternity, which means on December 18 I will have survived 30 years of severe brain trauma and yet as I sit here I want you to all prepared to join with me in a celebration of life, confidence, empowerment, strength, struggle, mobilization, and getting prepared for 2015 – 2014 is whining to a close, yet there is still a chance for great change. Now!!!


    The purpose of the empowerment zone is to strengthen you to learn more about your disability rights and heritage to go boldly where no man or woman has ever gone before with a disability to brightly you the future and be part of the change so come with me here on The Empowerment Zone with Les Paul Morgan


    if you would like to call, dial 424-243-9540 press the number 1# if you’d like to speak. I’m also doing show on Thursday Night to have a lot of fun music, and friendship here on the brain injury radio network, the largest support group on the Earth!

    #Redskins #Redskins #Redskins

    in Sports

    Maybe if I shout #Redskins #Redskins #Redskins people might listen.  Maybe they might pay attention to the articles I've been sharing since before November 2013 about the possibility of a link between brain trauma and the violent crime that plagues the National Football League, but other professional sports leagues as well.  Maybe somebody might take time to look beyond the surface of the photos, and see my desperate plea for someone to take notice.  Maybe . . . but chances are nobody will take time to listen to what I have to say.  


    Back in 2002 I formed a non-profit organization that was originally filed as a 501 3C charity to help educate about mutual respect.  I have been working for years on trying to uncover some of the reasons why people commit violent crimes.  My son''s brain injury that he suffered at birth, coupled with my personal experience with one of New York's Finest, lead me delve even further.  Ultimately, I would find myself interviewing athletes who had played with the National Football League, all in an attempt to try to get to the bottom of the root cause of domestic violence.   I had reached out in an anonymous way to several people who work for national news sources, as well as, written the commissioner of the National Football League. 


    Listen here to find out more . . .  and perhaps you might understand why it's so frustrating for me to see the attention go toward Bill Collins, and nobody listening or caring about the real issues.  Let me remind people, it's not about Bill Collins, it's not about Ray vs. Roger.  No this is about so much more, but it's not like anybody seems to be listening.  Do you have to be a supermodel or a pro athlete for people to care?  Maybe.

    Brain Injury Connection on Recovery Now With Kim Justus

    in Health

    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


    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.


    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!

  • Operation: Next Chapter

    in Military

    Operation: Next Chapter is “working with Soldier’s Angeles Project: Valour-IT to provided 100 voice-controlled, adaptive lap-top computers for military personnel who have lost the use of their hands.  Vietnam Veteran and author Cym Lowell will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his latest novel, Jasper’s War, to purchase these individually adapted computers which cost $500 a piece.  The laptops allow warriors who are healing from amputations, paralysis, eye injuries, burns and brain trauma to stay in touch with their family and their units during their recovery period.”


    Cym Lowell "was born in Montana to academics and spent his youth traveling the world. To put it politely, he was an undistinguished student, rewarded with assignment to the U.S. Navy at 18. After two years in Vietnam, college and law school were a challenge. Being a veteran in the political turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s taught humility. Raising three children in the Midwest and Texas brought love and responsibility. An international tax practice in the financial crises of the past 40 years provided insight into motivations of actors on the global stage. Friends, clients, adversaries, and colleagues, like victory and defeat, added color and context. The result is a writer with a treasure trove of experience to frame compelling characters enmeshed in heart-thumping challenges." Cym Lowell is the author of The Gift, Riddle of Berlin and Jaspar's War.

  • Episode 2: Second Sight, extra sensory perception and temporal lobe brain injury

    in Education

    Welcome to another episode of Brain Injury Round Table. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of more than 30 years and Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com. At the suggestion of Mr. Tai Campbell, of Taken Back Our Communities Now, http://www.tbocn.org, tonight’s show will look into the development of heightened feeling states following brain injury. Some such heightened feelings take the form of disturbances in the autonomic nervous system. The resulting condition is known as “hyper-arousal” and describes the effect of injury on things such as heart rate and respiration. Another aspect of heightened feeling states is sometimes seen as psychic or extra sensory abilities and in many instances is seen as a gift. Others in this category might feel undone by the sudden onset of such strange reveries and might find themselves pre-occupied by feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.


    It is seldom addressed by members of the profession called upon to make us whole, to take us from the point of being "patients" to being people again. Therefore, tonight  we’re going to take matters into our own hands. We’ll kick it around, swap stories and delve into another of those taboo topics associated with brain injury.


    Join us for another exciting and informative episode of Disability Roundtable. thanks to all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, your mobile device wherever you are all around the world. Additionally, I’d like to give a big thank you to this show’s sponsors: Martha Marcum, mother of a brain injury survivor and author of MARTHA'S FABLES and Gordon Johnson, attorney of TBI Law.com. Additionally, we look forward to bringing another sponsor Mia Marcum McCoy, brain injury survivor and author of a brain injury book that she will speak with us about on a future episode.
