Hi I'm Kim Nelson-Ingram. Thank you for checking out this episode of The Help Desk.
Think about this: Approximately every 23 seconds in the United States a mild traumatic brain injury (i.e. concussion) occurs as a result of a fall, vehicle related collision, sports injury and other blows or trauma to the head. Very often symptoms from these injuries may appear subtle and unrecognizable by others for weeks, months or even years later.
In the memoir Broken Silence, speech-language pathologist and professional speaker Eudora Pickett Nelson, shares the story of a mild traumatic brain injury she suffered at nine years old but was not medically diagnosed until 50 years later.
On this episode of The Help Desk you'll learn some of the most common symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury and how to take steps toward cognitive improvement.

This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele’s original radio show, “Your Life After Trauma.”
The first years of human life are more important than we ever realized. Listen in to this interview where Michele welcomed two guests, the first being Robin Karr-Morse. Robin discussed her book SCARED SICK: The Role of Childhood Trauma in Adult Disease, In her book, Robin Karr-Morse connects psychology, neurobiology, endocrinology, immunology, and genetics to demonstrate how chronic fear in infancy and early childhood— when we are most helpless—lies at the root of common diseases in adulthood. Plus author Terry Smith discussed his book Surviving Head Trauma, his personal account of life with TBI.

We will interview Kathy Helmick, Interim Senior Executive Director, Traumatic Brain Injury / Director, TBI Clinical Standards of Care Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Ms. Helmick will discuss the new clinical practice guidelines for treatment of mild TBI (concussion) among servicemembers in-theater. Additionally, Ms. Helmick will discuss new research about exposure of cumulative blasts through collaboration with the NFL and the concussions sustained by servicemembers versus concussions sustained in athletics such as with football players.
Numerous recent cases involving professional athletes bring the issue of mild traumatic brain injuries into the press. I will discuss the definition of a mild tramatic brain injury; diagnostic techology surrounding a MTBI; and MTBI in the context of insurance claims.
Segment 2 of Donna's story of David's Traumatic Brain Injury and their journey through the TBI maze.
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, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip 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!

Let's talk about art!
Whether you're an artist or not, life with a brain injury takes a ton of creativity. I left my career as a rehabilitation clinician and became an artist after a TBI in 2010. The arts saved me by giving me a community and a way to explain my situation in a way other people could get it.
Making art can be adapted to any and all disabilities, and there are as many types of art or ways of expression as there are people. How do you use art? Personal expression, therapy, rehabilitation, political statement, or community building?
Whether you do drawing, photography, music, decorating, writing, sculpting, painting, sewing, movies, graffiti or any type of art, let's chat! You can introduce listeners to your art form and share with us the ways you adapt your art to work for a person living with a brain injury.
