SORT BY Relevancy
For many survivors damage to the brain gets in the way of cognitive learning and adaptations must be made. Accommodations come in many and varied forms. This evening two young women, who both sustained a brain injury, Melissa Cronin and Juliet Madsen, are joining me on a panel to discuss “Learning Accommodations After Brain Injury.”
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!

Carol the Coach will be describing the many gifts of sexual addiction.
As a Survivor of multiple disabilities and TBI, s I have seen many great survivors fighting the fight to help change the lives of people who want to live a better life and yet at the same time I have seen much anger and infighting amoung people with disabilities which does nothing but leave us all looking bad and foolish on the disability community!!!
We need to work together to find ways to untie people with disabilities instead us tearing each other down so we can be a strong community of thrives helping one another Fight for disability rights and equality but then on the other hand I have witnessed many people who simply given up grown angry and dis associated and left hurting feeling alone by an often broken and seemingly hopeless situations develop in the disability community and yet we have a chance now to COME TO GETHER and change the World if we dare to be different and start helping one another by choosing to team up and change the World one person at a time starting right now in the hot ANGRY Summer heat of 2015.
In the heat of the Moment
Who am I
Positive realistic solution’s
Making a difference
positive versus negative
When opposites attract
Looking deep within
Open Floor for discussion
Things are not always as they seem…

After brain injury adjusting to the new you seems impossible but with time things will begin to fall into place sometimes in the most unthinkable ways. Nine years into the new me I sit and wonder why? The one thing I learned is that life is not fair. But with a little help we find our way to a life that has meaning. A life we can lay our head down at night and feel a since of peace. Then it becomes up to us to build those relationships in our lives. To build a life of meaning. One thing we must learn is that it never goes as we might thing it should, but if we let it, it just might go the way it should.

Show Topic: You're progressing through treatment. You've turned the corner. You see the end of the treatment road on the horizon. The end of the safety of the cocoon is near. Your tool kit is stocked. It's now about repetition, practice, and exercising your new or readjusted attitutude and behaviors. Then BOOM (or BAM), you blow it up. You "engineer" a relapse. You SABOTAGE yourself, and the process. Why do we do this to ourselves?!?
