Welcome The Science of Happiness, There is Life After Brain Injury
My name is LoriPurdy Faitel and I am your host
I am a Survivor of a Traumatic Brain Injury & 7 Day Coma, 6 years before I felt like a regular person again.
I am a state Licensed and Nationally Certified OTA (Occupational Therapy Assistant,) I have worked in the world of the non brain injured for more than 20 years.
It has only been the last 5 or so years that I have concentrated all my energies in giving back. I currently work in several TBI rehab facilities, I am an author of a memoir “Am I Brain Damaged” which is available in audio on iTunes or as an ebook on kindle and in paperback directly from me.
I never dreamed of being a radio host, and I am learning so very much!
Tonights show is an interview I did with a fellow/female TBI survivor-Nancy Bauser. Listen as I talk to Nancy about what it was like when she was injured in the 1970’s, as we talk about life post TBI and her views.
Please send me good wishes for tonights broadcast. I will be listening live with you, I will keep my eye on the chat room and I will interrupt the interview to give additional insights.
I hope you enjoy this show.

My guest tonight on Recovery Now, is Barbara J. Webster, author of Lost and Found, A Survivor’s Guide for Reconstructing Life After a Brain Injury, available through Lash Publishing.
In 1991, Barbara suffered a TBI when her car skidded off a slippery road and was totaled. Like so many others, she was not diagnosed properly and suffered the ills of too many survivors. We will travel through her journey as a brain thriver, as well as her involvement in facilitating the Brain Injury Survivor Support group in Framington since 1995. She also works part time for the Brain Injury Support Association of Massachusetts assisting other support groups, and will discuss the importance of support of like minded people in recovery.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, or guests share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load through our journey of recovery. More will be revealed! This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we discover 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. :)
Most nights we have a featured guest, or will introduce a topic of recovery encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The back half of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire.
Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond at www.inaflash.org
