    The Matt Duffin Show - "Blah, Blah, TBI Blah's''

    in Radio

    Full Definition of BLAH

    1:  also blah–blah \-?blä\ :  silly or pretentious chatter or nonsense

    2:  plural [perhaps influenced in meaning by blasé] :  a feeling of boredom, lethargy, or general dissatisfaction


        You understand the definition of TBI.  Do I ''blah blah blah?''  Depends on who is listening to what.  Do I listen to ''Blah Blah Blah?''  Usually, but I'm Support Group trained.  Uh, there is some 'blahing' going on inside to walls, at times.  But, in today's new world, I lilsten - wether folks think I am or not.  I listen, and I can be slow to respond.  Slowing down, helps us cope with BI's.  Survivor and Caregiverr alike.


    Webster's definition #2, no that reacches the TBI level of life.  We go to sleep sad, serious and bored.  We wake up, dreamless and bored.  Whatever the day may bring, as Survivors we will appear or simply be bored.  Staring, at nothing, or something, just staring.  We stare.  For many reasons, we stare.  Want to know how to avoid 'staring' all day, or a big part of it?  So do I - call me and explain to us how you avoid THE BLAH's...

    John Gamble

    I joined the Army in 97 after graduating college. I spent four years at Ft. Hood, deploying to Bosnia in 98. I ets'd in 2001 and joined the Indiana national guard. Six months later my unit activated stateside. After two years of that, my ex got orders to Ft. Wainwright so re-enlisted back to the active duty side. I had just re-enlisted to reclass when I ended up having surgery on my achillies and was med boarded out. I currently work in a powerplant.

    Daniel Kraemer, is a 15 year US Air Force veteran. He has participated in multiple operations including Operation Noble Eagle, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as numerous humanitarian missions around the world. During his last deployment in October of 2013 Daniel was injured with a Traumatic Brain Injury which lead to his discharge due to medical injuries. With a TBI, PTSD, anxiety and other PTSD symptoms Daniel felt as if he had nothing once his military career was cut short. With only idle time on his hands Daniel started to drift and let his demons control his every move. It wasn't until almost a year later in late fall 2014 Daniel checked himself into a VA PTSD treatment facility for help. It was there, an old boxing trainer who worked as the facility's recreation director showed Daniel that he was still a warrior, and just because he wasn't at war there was still a battle that needed to be fought. It was through a renewed love of boxing that Daniel found his road to recovery and dealing with his day to day demons. With keeping with that warrior mentality and vigorous strength and conditioning along with intense fight training Daniel has come along way from his dark days of only a few years ago. His goal is to help as many of his fellow combat veterans as possible through fitness and mixed martial arts.

    Let the Holidays Begin ... Balancing the Added Stresses and Desired Joys ...

    in Self Help

    When we're kids, the holidays usually represent joy and wonder, excitement and extra activity. Not for all, but for many of us. For other less fortunate kids, the desire for those emotions is there.

    As an adult survivor of brain injury and the caregivers, while the wish we could still feel that way, the truth is, the tightrope can be very thin. Sometimes as hard we try, the positive emotions can give way to overwhelming, stressful, and depressive feelings. How can we achieve a balance, or can we?  How do we makea tricky situation more tolerable and happy for everyone? 

    Special guests with a special request will be stopping by. Wendy "Yaya", her daughter Melissa and her two sons Dillon (12) and Tyler (10). They both have a terminal illness. With surgeries and proper medical care they can be expected to live into their 20s.  After they were diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and are the 2015 NE MDA Ambassadors. Their house burned down in CO. They returned to Omaha and are now both confined to wheelchairs. In the brutal climate of the midwest, a critical need has come up and we hope you can help. See www.gofundme.com/whafuw48 Or if you prefer Wells Fargo Omaha has an account set up called DillonTylerVan, which you can send a donation to. Check with your own Wells Fargo about getting the deposit made to Account number 5089869753.

    After hearing my guests, I think you'll find Thanks and Giving easier to achieve, and hopefully help in the spirit of Thanksgiving.

    Brain Injury Communication w/ Host Michael Idell-Beating a Positive Drum in Life

    in Education

    Please join us to learn a positive approach to a better life with co-host and special guest Executive Vice President National Seizure Disorders Foundation, David Paul. 

    We are talking about beating a drum for a positive change in life and concentrating on stress relievers.  People need to ask themselves "What does not work in my my life and how do I change it?" Too many people concentrate on what's wrong instead of what needs to make them better.

    The concentration should be "I need to focus on a better life to get there."
