View Full Version : Concussions suck

01-30-2012, 09:32 AM
Sat. night I tripped on the ramp going into my shed and smashed my forehead on something,I really don't remember what I hit.I got over it and lit a fire in the pit and felt fine more or less.Woke up Sun. morning with a headache that makes the worst hangover headache look mild and I could barely see.I go into the bathroom look in the mirror and I looked like someone took a bat to my face...both eyes swollen shut,more black and purple bruising.A couple of hours later the puking started.

The headache is finally starting to ease and I was able get something into my stomach without having to taste it twice.

Going to be a long week I think.

Agree, from your description it sounds like you did a nice job on yourself. I'd want to make sure your progress was monitored and ensure that's all you have going on.

If you don't go now, you're likely not to go at all.

I went Sunday morning.

Other than some black eyes and knot on my forehead I'm feeling pretty decent today.

Its not like I have somewhere to go.I've all the time I need to rest.

the average football player lives only to age 58
because of concussions ..... so if i were you
i would look at that ramp and figure out
how/why you tripped it won't happen again.

Rest up - more vitamin c helps swelling reduce.

feel better

I know what I tripped extension cord going to a heater.I just don't remember what I hit.

Either way I re-rerouted the cord today.
