    Brain Injury Connection on Recovery Now With Kim Justus

    in Health

    After a TBI, where Deb Palmer lost consciousness over asphalt, resulting in a subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage, she was diagnosed with a seizure disorder and major depression.  She knew she fell and hit her head, that something was wrong, but didn’t know what. She kept thinking it would go away with more sleep.  Nobody referred her to any resources for help or support.  Doctors obviously weren’t trained on how to address the long-term sequelae of brain injury or how to help someone who has had one.  Deb didn’t want what happened to her to happen to others.


    Deb decided to turn anger into something constructive; and, with the help of other survivors and some professionals, published  five free newsletters to educate about brain injury.  The demand for the publication was greater than expected so she decided to form a nonprofit organization. Thus, the Brain Injury Connection (BIC) was born. www.braininjuryconnection.org


    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.


    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

  • Episode 2: Second Sight, extra sensory perception and temporal lobe brain injury

    in Education

    Welcome to another episode of Brain Injury Round Table. I am your host, Constance Miller, brain injury survivor of more than 30 years and Managing Director of Brain Injury Resource Center, located on the Internet at http://www.headinjury.com. At the suggestion of Mr. Tai Campbell, of Taken Back Our Communities Now, http://www.tbocn.org, tonight’s show will look into the development of heightened feeling states following brain injury. Some such heightened feelings take the form of disturbances in the autonomic nervous system. The resulting condition is known as “hyper-arousal” and describes the effect of injury on things such as heart rate and respiration. Another aspect of heightened feeling states is sometimes seen as psychic or extra sensory abilities and in many instances is seen as a gift. Others in this category might feel undone by the sudden onset of such strange reveries and might find themselves pre-occupied by feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.


    It is seldom addressed by members of the profession called upon to make us whole, to take us from the point of being "patients" to being people again. Therefore, tonight  we’re going to take matters into our own hands. We’ll kick it around, swap stories and delve into another of those taboo topics associated with brain injury.


    Join us for another exciting and informative episode of Disability Roundtable. thanks to all our listeners for bringing our voices, to your home, your mobile device wherever you are all around the world. Additionally, I’d like to give a big thank you to this show’s sponsors: Martha Marcum, mother of a brain injury survivor and author of MARTHA'S FABLES and Gordon Johnson, attorney of TBI Law.com. Additionally, we look forward to bringing another sponsor Mia Marcum McCoy, brain injury survivor and author of a brain injury book that she will speak with us about on a future episode.

    My Brain Changed. Now What?

    in Self Help

    When you have a brain injury sometimes our ways of communication can be taken the wrong way. Let's talk about some ways to get your point across.I remember not having much of a filter after my brain aneurysm. So feelings would get hurt or if someone said something to me, my feelings would get hurt. Now, I am getting better at communicating without being rude or insulting. Emotions can run high when you feel that you have lost control. There are moments when everything drives you mad from, people talking, crowds, family, friends, etc. After a brain injury things become confusing and things can get a little difficult when trying to express ourselves. Sometimes the only way for us to communicate is for us to just say what's on our mind.


    Suggestions: Find a support group either in your area or online. This helps with connecting with others like you. Remember, this is a process and nothing changes overnight. Be patient and kind to yourself.

    In some point in our lives, we notice some physical symptoms like fever, sore throat, headaches, stomach issues, pain in the head area and to severe diseases like heart attacks, stroke and even cancer. Now, more than ever, after we have overcome some of those issues, they seem to be coming back. Why now? Well, that's what we will talk about.


    We will also talk about the connection of the body to the spirit, emotions, sexuality, dreams and mind. We will discuss about what we can do to make a difference inside of us. To do this we will address the emotional and the energetic sources.


    We invite listeners to come and participate in the discussion and the sharing of knowledge. And we thank all our listeners for truly “being” the shows we air. Come share how you speak about your spiritual or healing work and let others know who and what you can help with. Together we will learn.

    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
