Head Banger

Bad News hit me hard in the head.  And, I say that literally.  A couple weeks ago, I was at NuBoo's house.  We just finished a 10 mile run for our Half Marathon training.  We rested for a while and played with Bam.  I was in the living room and leaned backed hard to rest against the back cushion of his couch.  It was too late before I realized that his couch in fact had no back to it for it was really a long rectangular ottoman.  BANG went my head onto his window sill.  Painful as it was, I got over it quickly.  Just saw a few stars but nothing major like me passing out. 

Couple days later after my incident, I was working out w/my personal trainer Gary at the TFT facility.  Between the TRX and doing planks, I all of a sudden felt dizzy.  Perhaps, I didn't eat?  But I did! Suddenly, I was having vertigo.  The room was spinning and I could not balance.  I took a quick rest on the floor accompanied by a sip of my bottled water.  Vertigo went away temporarily.  Dizziness and fatigue was still present.  I continued the workout until the very end. 

After my workout, I was feeling extremely sleepy driving home.  I knew I had enough rest the night before.  Plus, it's so rare for me to be drowsy mid-morning.  What's going on?  I sucked it up and went about my normal routine. 

The day after, I still felt tired and very dizzy.   It was like I just finished riding a roller coaster at Great America.  Not only that, but my vertigo episodes were not going away.  In addition to that, I felt I was going to puke and my head would start hurting.   I almost tipped over while getting out of the shower.  Right then and there, I knew something was wrong but I still ignored it.  I wasn't concerned about myself quite yet.  Half a day into it,  NuBoo finally convinced my stubborn ass to put a call into the advice nurse at Kaiser Permanente. The symptoms I had were identical to symptoms of a concussion.  Who would have thought that hitting my head while doing something really idiotic would cause me to have a concussion.  Pretty embarrassing, right?  I mean, at least have me do something athletic to deserve this!  Not a head bang to a freakin' window sill because of my carelessness and stupidity.  Anyway, I finally made a doctor appointment.  Results - yup, I have a concussion.  Apparently, I hit my head so hard that it cause some bruising in my brain.  Boo!  Doctor said to rest for one to two weeks.  No exercise.  He even gave me a doctor's note to take off from work.  Did I do that?  Negative.  My brain must be really acting up!  Anyone, I mean anyone would have made use of that doctor's note right?  Nope. Not I.  I must be really f**ked up in the dome. 

Anyway, there's my story of my first concussion in my life.  It's definitely not fun.  I still haven't felt the same since and it's been exactly a week.  Hopefully, I get better soon.
