    STRAIGHT OUTTA BRAIN INJURY


    No one would ever know, how sometimes seemingly small things can set into motion a emotional catastrophic series of events. How we can be emotionally and mentally destabilized in a flash!!

    Tonight 3 survivors will share their emotional and physical experiences with you. For name sake we will call this series of Straight OUTTA BRAIN INJURY - 
    "Stung, Warped & Fried" 

    We hope you will call in and share your experiences of to much, times where you felt mentally or emotionally in a freefall. we get it. As well we realize with management we can somewhat have control over these freefalls. 

    Our challenge is to have as few of these as we can, to recognize how to minimize them. Together we can learn to have a life far greater than we can imagine, so let us imagine this life together

  • Neurofibromatosis & Brain Impact on Recovery Now with Kim Justus

    in Health

    Cassey Blumenthal has Neurofibromatosis Type 1 as well as dyslexia which is common with NF. She was diagnosed at age 7 and currently there is no cure for neurofibromatosis. 


    Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in the nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors may develop anywhere in your nervous system, including in your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Neurofibromatosis is usually diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood. Dr Frederick Covington will join us to discuss therapies and assistive technology that he is creating. www.askdrcovington.com


    The tumors are usually (benign), but in some cases these tumors become cancerous. Effects of neurofibromatosis can range from hearing loss, learning impairment, and heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) complications to severe disability due to nerve compression by tumors, loss of vision and severe pain. Learn more about this disease that inflicts about 1 in 3000 people.


    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."


    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.


    The 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! Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org & "Like" at www.facebook.com/inaflash.org and www.facebook.com/braininjuryradionetwork

  • Another Fork in the Road: Former NFL San Fran 49er, George Visger & Brain Injury

    in Education

    Former NFL San Fran 49er, George Visger had many concussions during his years playing organized football. His turning point came when he had a severe concussion during the 1981 Super Bowl season with the San Francisco 49ers in a game against the Dallas Cowboys.


    George has good advice for brain injury survivors. “Turn your negative into a positive and touch people’s lives. Focus on your positives."


     


    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!
