Have you ever suffered a head concussion? It's makes your brain have to work really hard. Just like yesterday, after stopping at the stop light the light turned green, I had to set there for awhile and think, does green mean go?
I have known something was not right up there, since the day after the accident, but was contributing it to just the accident. I had a good friend stop by and visit a couple of days after the accident, and for the life of me, I couldn't remember her name. I knew something was wrong, I am stubborn. That hit on my head that caused me to black out really must have hit hard.
I'm finding that experiencing a concussion is very frustrating. The other morning I went downstairs to get something and forgot what I went there for. Now, normally that happens every once in awhile, but with this stupid concussion it's happening more than several times a day. It is the one of the most frustrating things I've ever experienced, and also a little scary.
The Doctor said my short term memory loss could last a couple more weeks or six months. It's probably a good thing they took the rental car back, as I don't feel comfortable driving.
Little things like pushing the button on the key lock pad take extra concentration skills. I'm also really really irritable. Not myself at all. I hate this!!
I can't imagine living like this every day. It wears you down having to concentrate so hard. I still consider myself fortunate as to not have been seriously injured.
I'm going to try to get better and wrap myself up into making things which is the best therapy ever for me. I'm not sure if I want to blog for awhile. I will probably take a little break.
Thanks for all your kind words, I will talk to you soon.
Enjoy a caring and sharing day.
