I am on leave from work right now, thank God I have an understanding boss.
Yes, I was in a car accident, was rear ended by 2 vehicles, one a hit and run, in late March.
The first hit sent my head forward and the second was massive, don't remember if I hit my head as I lost a few secs but I had a contusion on my head so the ER Dr thought I did, afterwards I couldn't remember that there were 2 hits, kept saying there was just one massive one.
This happened on a Friday and I saw my local Dr on Monday, I remember sitting in the waiting room feeling so sick, knowing there were people around me but it was like a fog, out of body experience, couldn't see them properly, she kept asking me questions but I was blank. Those first few weeks were hell.
Do you get disorientated in the store? it's just too many people, noises, talking, bright lights.. my therapist says it's too stimulating.
The other exercise I do is stare at a small object and slooooowly move my head side to side, then up and down, that's a hard one and my eyes feel as though they are being pulled from behind with pain and pressure.
Have you read Mark's thread about vitamins? great advice there and I have it printed out.
How's your balance doing?
I am very active so I cried and cried when told I cannot go hiking or climbing, very emotional.
I get severe headaches too, got to watch how long I'm on the computer etc. Am going to see an neurologist, I do see a neurological OT, cannot remember exactly what it is that's wrong, the name of it..I see her again tomorrow, feel like I live at the therapy center
Thank God for this site, hope you're ok?
