People have heard about brain injury but they really don't think about until it happens to them, which at that point it is all they or anyone they know can talk about. It is a sinister injury that can change everything in a blink of an eye, and as it goes on misunderstood the dark side of a person a new person starts to emerge, spouses suddenly in a relationship with a stranger, even the survivor does not know themselves. Lost alone and frightened learn about it before it’s too late, before it can take you or a loved one’s life away forever, the more you know the better you will be. You are not along there are millions of us among you. We represent over 70% of those in prison and even more of the homeless. Together we can stop the devastating effects of this sinister injury that can last a life time. One that is big business over 75 billion a year, where the rich control the destiny of the lost for a buck. Let us make a world where we are accepted not jailed or isolated, empowered not controlled. One where we embrace this new person to be a better, braver, strong more creative and productive part of society.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Please join me, Lisa Dryer, and my friend, Susan Dampf Staton, on "Mess With MS" on November 12th! On https://www.blogtalkradio.com/braininjuryradio Sunday at 5:30 PM Pacific, 7:30 PM Mountain, and 8:30 PM Eastern. You can listen to the show by calling 424-243-9540 at your local time. You can even call in and talk to us during the interview! If you miss the program, you can access it anytime on the Brain Injury Radio Network in our archives. This program is about how a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis can change your life. It's FOR anyone with a chronic condition or those interested in learning more about MS, Brain Injury, Lupus, Cancer, Stroke, Migraine, Lyme, and other health issues. MS is one of the most debilitating neurological diseases. IT CHANGED MY LIFE when I discovered that I was diagnosed with it. Our show tonight will be about a NEW stage of life that Susan and I are both experiencing: Middle Age! While most people's mid-life cycles are filled with work and children, that does not happen for all people with disabilities. In fact, Susan and I have had to deal with the usual grief and loss that most middle-aged people have to deal with -- watching their parents and friends age, but how should someone with compromised health deal with all of this? Especially when stress can make MS flair up a real problem. MS doesn't care if the stress you are dealing with is something that you HAVE to go through or not. I'd love it if YOU joined our discussion!
