Brain Injury Support groups save lives, build communities and give meaning to a life affected by brain injury
Many who think about groups, think it may just be coffee and a donut but they are so much more than that, groups for many are the only connection to society, any connection to any other person that is not a medical profession or pharmacist dish out medicines.
Groups get people into the community if their facilitated right, doing healthy activities such as yoga, meditation and nutrition and exercise. They can help survivors and their families find a purpose that has meaning. Even after years of being stuck in hopeless mode. It saves lives, for many survivors who first discover others who have the same challenges, it can be the first glimpse of hope. Hope that life is not only about loss and pain. Hope that life can have meaning. No other services available to those living with a brain injury can inspire hope like peer support.
We are doing this episode to share with any and all who ever want to limit support groups, we need people to understand the power in Peer support groups, the power to rebuild life, and dreams..
Even the powerful ones of the economy are feeling the might and obeying the evil laws of the dark order which is spreading its dangerous and fatal poison of hatred everywhere, into everything and against everyone who does not share the same opinion as the dark might.
Mindfulness. Relating Assertively. 5 R's of Stress Management. Recognizing Thoughts, Feelings. Problem Solving.
And so many much needed skills to be a Human Being, to be a person. Once the brain is scrambled by a TBI or any brain injury, COPING SKILLS indeed get scrambled too, as the brain is our make up. Coping Skills, taught soon following my Severe TBI of 7-years ago, is what way of life I MUST try to live, to be able to live life on life's terms. With out it, there is no Matt Duffin. The shell left of myself would roll, crack and break on a constant basis. With Coping Skills, we learn to make good of the bad, and make the bad go away.
Coping, with a TBI. Its out of this world, sometimes a delayed flight life can be but we learn to standon solid ground. Little League World Series ended today with Japan on top, but over 40,000 fans in person and most of the world on TV watched the game live. Baseball is the one who won. Also, 'When a Legend Changes Uniforms' and the NEW $10 bill prospects. Also, at Midnight Eastern, or 6 A.M.

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.
