    Recovery Now with Kim Justus...Brain Tumor, Endless Journey

    in Health

    Kerri Brantley is a Captain in the Missouri Army National Guard and native of Boise, Id. She recently moved to Maryland, where she is a writer/editor for Joint Hometown News Service at Fort George G. Meade. Kerri is still active in the Army National Guard. She joined to provide for her family and serve her country. Kerri is a single-mom and combat Vet who is currently working on her masters in Management in Public Relations. Kerri’s mom was diagnosed with a rare type of brain tumor that was never supposed to reoccur. Unfortunately it has, in spite of some of the latest technology and treatments. Kerri’s mom is not in shape for the interview, but I felt this was such an incredible journey, that it needed to be told. Our prayers need to be with them. I had occasion to meet Kerri when I was speaking to her about a common passion of ours. It was then that I heard the story about her mom. Hopefully we can enlighten you on both. 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. :) Some nights we will have a featured guest, and others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. We often have music in the second have from some great Indie Musicians! Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org

    Down and dark days of brain injury survival with Host Michael Idell

    in Education

    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. 
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Another Fork in the Road: Juliet Madsen, Brain Injury Survivor, USA Troop

    in Education

    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!

    Brain Injury Communication with Michael Idell- Controlling Brain Injury

    in Education

    How do you see yourself moving forward if your focus is on the past? Who keeps you down? Who picks you up? Who decides what gets to you? YOU DO!


    The physical trials after surviving a brain injury we may not be able to always overcome. We may still have a cane, a walker, a wheelchair, some trouble speaking, walking or hearing but one thing we can control is our own happiness. We decide on what aggravates us, what keeps us down, and what bothers us. It's time to take control of our lives in a positive fashion.


    Positive reinforcement and outlook is the only way to move ahead in life. We, as survivors, have had our bouts since our brain injuries but no one is to say life is over now. This is a subject that hits us at home but s a struggle all people go through in life. We decide on how things affect us. We can let things overcome our focus and willpower.


    Why let the things we can't control overwhelm us instead of just controling the things we can- happiness.


    Small rewards in brain injury rehabilitation lead to larger goals of accomplishment, self esteem, empowerment, and confidence. This affects our outlook, the way we portray ourselves to others, and helps our own bodies grow healthy to remain there. If anything to be happy about, we are alive!!!
    Please call into our show, join the conversation and listen in to the callers speak. Call in to speak with the host (424) 243-9540


    This call is for those involved directly and indirectly with brain injury. Public awareness is needed globally as well. This may be you or your loved ones one day. Families and friends need to learn about brain injury too!

    Brain Injury Communication with Host Michael Idell - Where Do We go from Here?

    in Education

    Have you or someone you have loved been wrapped up just thinking about brain injury all day and night? "I wish I was who I was back then or before"..... Does your day get taken up by thinking how bad things are or what is getting on your nerves? How much time is wasted thinking about what others are doing and what you are not doing? Where do you go from here? CHANGE.


    Utilize your time in a positive fashion or you are just wasting your time! 


    Stop thinking of your past and concentrate on a positive tomorrow. Your time is wasted thinking about your past instead of focusing on a better life today! If you have a brain injury, you can not change the life experiences that came our way but you can change your perspective of how it consumes you. Your mind sets your mood. You decide on what gets the best of you. You decide to be strong or to be weak. If you need help or some motivation, reach out to those who love you. Call someone who cares to pick you up when you are down. Call someone in the brain injury community like us! 


    Friday May 1st, 2015

    8:00pm -9:30pm (Eastern Time)
