Here we are, November 2nd.
A month ago, Emily elbowed me by accident and I assumed for a bit that the discomfort would go away.
It’s been a month and I can’t use my brain to its full potential yet.
It’s been a tough month of me realizing how much I use and need my brain.
I have good days that are normally followed by some really bad days. Headaches are now part of my life.
I am going for a head scan this week and will make an appointment with an ophthalmologist to see if my left eye was impacted by the blow.
To be a parent is an adventure, to be a parent of a child with special needs is an awesome ride with the fun and the scary parts. Emily never meant to hit me and I am thankful she doesn’t realize the stress this is causing me as I would hate for her to feel guilty about this.
This was an accident!
I will continue my rehabilitation slowly and will continue to be thankful that its not worst. It’s far from being ok but it could be way worst.
So… I’m taking a page from Emily’s book. Slowly but surely, I will
keep trying and I will conquer this concussion. Soon, I hope, this will be history.
i’m sorry this has been such a hard recovery, you have a very good attitude about it all, half the battle. feel better soon –
Thank you! This whole thing is helping me appreciate what I have … And realize I really don’t really care for brainless/useless tv shows 🙂
I’m so very sorry it’s taking so long to recover! I remember when she got you and it was totally an accident, but she hit you just right apparently! I hope either the scan comes back clear – or they find something that has a simple and easy fix! Good luck!
The brain will heal when it’s ready I guess. It just feels like its taking forever!
