TBI – Survivors, Caregivers, Family, and Friends

On the Air – Brain Injury Radio

“Prisoner Without Bars” (segment 3 & epilogue)

 

images-1

The red light in the studio is blinking. A voice from nowhere says, “Your show will start in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 second. ‘You’re On the Air.’” Then a second of dead air occurs before the Brain Injury Radio logo music plays. There’s no turning back…

“We lived a normal life…until we didn’t….”

In this third and last part of “Prisoner Without Bars: Conquering Traumatic Brain Injury,” I completed my husband David’s and my journey through the first year-and-a-half of our new life in this TBI maze. I also included an epilogue, which brings the story to current time.

I tell stories of how David loved the barium-dipped cookies during the fluoroscopy test to determine his swallowing ability – or lack of it. I tell how David insisted on having “dessert first” before all meals, of my crash course in Nursing 101, 102, and 103 before David was released to my custody – all too soon – from the rehabilitation hospital, and how he was honored as the keynote speaker at a scientific symposium in Colorado to present his research. I talked about David’s transition to home after rehab and eventually his return to his laboratory at Columbia University. The story goes on and on, as does life. There’s never a dull moment when living with TBI.

I hope you’ll tune in to my show, “Another Fork in the Road,” which airs the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings of every month. The show starts at 5:00p Pacific Time and runs for 90 minutes. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 5:00p Pacific Time, Julie Kintz hosts “Quantum Leap.” When there is a fifth Sunday in a month, Julie and I will team up to cohost a show called “Another Quantum Leap in the Road.”

  1. Thanks for sharing, Richard. If you are interested in learning more about how music helps TBI survivors heal, see my blog post on my website at melissacronin.com, “Fiddling my way toward a stronger vocabulary.” It is categorized under “brain injuries.” Glad you found help through music.

No memory of the day that changed my life

My name is Michelle Munt and this is my story about surviving a brain injury and what I continue to learn about it. This is for other survivors and their loved ones, but also to raise awareness of what can happen to those in an accident. This invisible injury too often goes undiagnosed and it can be difficult to find information about it. I will talk about things that have helped me as I continue to recover and invite others to see if it works for them too.

Everything and nothing. GM1123 😊
