Awareness On Concussions!

Hey everyone, just want to bring some awareness to the table for those not in the medical field. I speak first hand, honestly, without reservation, concussions are serious. Speaking from a present situation, this is my first concussion and it is totally inhibiting my life. I want to spread awareness on this condition briefly and honestly. On the outside i may look okay, normal, perfect, you may not see injury with your eyes. You wont see bandages, blood, bruises, BUT that is only a misconception, do not let that mislead you. The injury is on the inside the part you can not see. This is a brain injury. It is causing havoc and fear for me and others in my shoes. Please be kind, understanding to those with this condition. You can not see our injury but it is there and it is horrific and painful. Speaking currently with a concussion, there is nothing normal about this. There is constant headaches, nausea, slurred, delayed thoughts and speech. There are wrong words and cognitive issues. There is an intolerance to heat and cold, to music, screens, laptops, lights, and tv and stress. Please be understanding no one asks for this and we can not control or alter it, we live with it and hope it soon will end. You do not realize how tough things are, how they are magnified, with a concussion until you have one. I want to be me again! Loud music, bright lights, and no nausea to fight! If i play music it must be low and for a short period. Screen time brief, and with consequences. Just some awareness to those who never had this happen, and if you know someone who does be patient with them. Personally, i hope no one has to know. I will survive this, but for now i hope to heal quickly! Night Bloogers 🙂
