I love knitting and crochet!
I am a better knitter, but love crochet. I want to make the really lacy stuff out there, but very complicated. Yarn is fiber therapy. Oh yes it is.
What happened. I was in a car accident 2-23-2013, and got a mild concussion from it. The ER doctor was not well enlightened about mild brain injuries because he even told me I could probably have a glass of wine later that night! No, don't drink alcohol with a brain injury! I did get better advice from my regular doctor, got better, then all my symptoms came back. I had to leave my teaching job till I do half days of summer school starting in July.
Symptoms I had: dizziness, light and sound sensitivity, fatigue, tinitis, occasional headaches and migraines,
Symptoms as of 5--2013: poor sleep, tinitis, some confusion /short term memory blanks, balance. The other symptoms are mostly gone, but flare up if I OVERdo something.
Therapy I had: vestibular
Near the 3 month mark of my accident I a now able to drive alone in town, drive on the highway (very limited) shop in a store with fluorescent lighting without sunglasses (limited time 1-2 hrs max), and read for pleasure (limited). (limited)
Now at the 6th month mark, I feel mostly over the major symptoms I had. My energy is very good. No, it's GREAT! and I will get to return to teaching. I feel like a younger, happier version of myself and I feel so blessed to have this feeling.
9 months in and I am working full time. I do get tired, and some sound and light sensitivity from time to time, but mostly I am over most of my symptoms.
I pray every day and I m praying for your recovery.
