    Jimmy Pollard

    in Health

    In 1986, Jimmy Pollard, a special education teacher by training, found himself managing a specialist unit in a nursing home. Unaware of Huntington’s disease, he rejected for admission a young woman living with it. Her mother gently persuaded him to reconsider and admit her daughter. So began his career working with folks and family touched by HD. Jimmy became interested in how HD’s cognitive changes challenge both people living with it and their carers, and how care settings can accommodate the unique needs of people with HD.

    Walking beside Tony, Geri, Carol, Karen, John and Barbara as they travelled their HD roads for 15 years, he began to learn how these changes challenged them every moment and how they went about coping with them. He learned that listening to families and collaborating with professional colleagues is essential to better understanding and, most importantly, to improved care.

    In the intervening years, Jimmy has written “A Caregiver’s Handbook for Advanced Stage Huntington’s Disease” and “Hurry Up & Wait! A Cognitive Care Companion for Huntington’s Disease,” which have been translated into eight languages by national HD associations around the world, and has spoken at national HD meetings in Australia, England, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Switzerland, Poland, Scotland, Canada, and the United States.

    #26 Identifying your errors in thinking: Guest - Kim Ades, M.B.A.

    in Motivation

    Anytime we have internal or external conflict we are using a thinking errors. Thinking errors are the lens we use to create our perception. Our perception becomes our belief. Our belief causes us to have certain thoughts which then tell us how to feel. Our feelings in turn tell our body how to respond. Each person will have a specific version of their thinking error based on their core beliefs about how they fit in the world. You may be surprised at how often you use a thinking error in your day. Once you are aware of it it will reduce conflict in your life and allow you to focus on things that really matter.

    Kim Ades, M.B.A. is the president and founder of Frame of Mind Coaching and Journal Engine Software.

    Kelly Bulkeley Big Dreams: The Science of Dreaming

    in Politics Progressive

    Big dreams are rare but highly memorable dream experiences that make a strong and lasting impact on the dreamer's waking awareness. Moving far beyond "I forgot to study and the finals are today" and other common scenarios, such dreams can include vivid imagery, intense emotions, fantastic characters, and an uncanny sense of being connected to forces beyond one's ordinary dreaming mind. In Big Dreams, Kelly Bulkeley provides the first full-scale cognitive scientific analysis of such dreams, putting forth an original theory about their formation, function, and meaning.

    Big dreams have played significant roles in religious and cultural history, but because of their infrequent occurrence and fantastical features, they have rarely been studied in light of modern science. We know a great deal about the religious manifestations of big dreams throughout history and around the world, but until now that cross-cultural knowledge has never been integrated with scientific research on their psychological roots in the brain-mind system. In Big Dreams, Bulkeley puts a classic psychological thesis to the scientific test by clarifying and improving it with better data, sharper analysis, and a broader evolutionary framework. He brings evidence from multiple sources, shows patterns of similarity and difference, questions prior assumptions, and provides predictive models that can be applied to new sets of data. The notion of a connection between dreaming and religion has always been intuitively compelling; Big Dreams transforms it into a solid premise of religious studies and brain-mind science.

    MIND IS BOUND BY EVIL SPIRITS/Dr Pat Holliday/Dr Sabrina Holliday/Marshall Perot

    in Religion


    Satan's battleground is your mind and he uses demons and people to control you. You will either control or you must protect your mind or evil spirits have power over a part or your entire mind. The consequences of these powerful mind controlling humans and demons are explosive. There are many “mind controllers or also known as handlers”. They can come from government or supernatural cult groups who have the characteristics of magic, witchcraft or supernatural phenomena and can be found in all walks of life.


     Schizophrenic ~ Double-Minded has a psychological, spiritual, emotional and cognitive impact upon the mind. Psychiatrists and Psychologists see it as a mental disorder. Deliverance ministers see it as a spiritual disorder that needs to be resolved through deliverance of demons. It can come in from spiritual family generational curses, demons, drugs, and physical injuries. The Bible agrees that a person that has a split mind can be mentally ill.

    Brain Injury Communication - Michael Idell - Who Needs A Place to Vent?

    in Social Networking

    Who needs a place to vent when they won't be judged???


    It is unlikely that there is a typical developing individual who has never had a tantrum of some sort or an irrational behavior, who has not balked at being separated from a loved one or been fed up about circumstances they are dealt with . Rarer still are people who are never moody or withdrawn, aggressive or antisocial, argumentative or oppositional.

    It is typical of anyone to retreat or respond negatively or aggressively to situations that are new, frightening, or beyond their understanding.
    Why is this unacceptable behavior for a person surviving a brain injury?

    Why is it culturally acceptable for someone to be this way but when an individual with a neurological impairment, it becomes an excuse this person is acting irrational?

    Why should this person be judged based on his or her disability?

    Why can't this be looked at as a normal behavior by someone who was mistreated somehow?
    Are you a brain inury survivor and don't know who to turn to?

    Are you a caregiver who can't get any support?

    Are you a parent of someone with special needs and cant find someone who understands?

    in Radio

    Dr Maria Romanas is back in the house! As a Dr of Pathology, and a Brain Injury Survivor .. Dr Maria blends scientific based knowledge, with the human challenges of being a survivor. The past year has been a whirlwind of change for her, and for people who function best with routine, transition can really rock our boat!

    Maria's professional and personal life were limited by a severe TBI suffered during a roll-over car accident in 1984. She doesn't have an outwardly obvious disability, but cognitive impairments were compromising her quality of life.

    In spring 2013, Dr Maria went through an 8-week program of intensive holistic cognitive rehabilitation (HCR) that trained her to become her own self-therapist. She learned exactly what was wrong with her brain and how to deliberately use her conscious mind to prevent her impairments from causing disabled functioning. She has be gracious enough to share those tools with us in the past. Now once again life on life's terms, has her revisiting all tools she accumulated to maintain a stable life.

    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."

    The Happiness Track by Emma Seppala PhD

    in Relationships

    This week on Relationships 2.0 my guest is Emma Seppälä PhD author of The Happiness Track: How to Apply the Science of Happiness to Accelerate Your Success

    About the book:

    A leading expert on health psychology, well-being, and resilience argues that happiness is the key to fast tracking our professional and personal success.

    Everyone wants to be happy and successful. And yet the pursuit of both has never been more elusive. As work and personal demands rise, we try to keep up by juggling everything better, moving faster, and doing more. While we might succeed in the short term, it comes at a cost to our well-being, relationships, and, paradoxically, our productivity. In The Happiness Track, Emma Seppala, the science director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University, explains that our inability to achieve sustainable fulfillment is tied to common but outdated notions about success. We are taught that getting ahead means doing everything that’s thrown at us (and then some) with razor-sharp focus and iron discipline; that success depends on our drive and talents; and that achievement cannot happen without stress.

    The Happiness Track demolishes these counter-productive theories. Drawing on the latest findings from the fields of cognitive psychology and neuroscience—research on happiness, resilience, willpower, compassion, positive stress, creativity, mindfulness—Seppala shows that finding happiness and fulfillment may, in fact, be the most productive thing we can do to thrive professionally. Filled with practical advice on how to apply these scientific findings to our daily lives, The Happiness Track is a life-changing guide to fast tracking our success and creating the anxiety-free life we want.
