The thinking has been pretty hard... I received papers from workers comp about three weeks after the injury, plus some horrible paper work from my job saying the season was over and I was no longer needed (I am a photographer so the work is seasonal)... I needed to read stuff for workers comp and just simply could not! I nearly just signed the waiver (meant I would get WC and not be able to sue the school where I fell)... until I got the letter form my work... It meant I wouldn't have a job, and WC wouldn't cover the hours that I missed, which meant I wouldn't even qualify for EI (I was about 100 hours short).... I hired a lawyer, but it's not exactly a straight forward process... Still so much to do, and sometimes, I just don't have it in me to do any of it...
Feb 24, 2012 - Slipped on a large puddle of ice at work, hitting the back of my head. No loss of consciousness, so I assumed I'd be back at work within a few days. I was wrong.
When resting, symptoms are low. With exertion, I still suffer from fatigue, migraines, vision problems, problems thinking or reading, troubles sleeping, issues finding or getting words to my mouth when the headaches are bad, tinnitus, and thyroid issues which I think are due to the concussion. Seen one specialist, and now a few others through insurance review of my case. Hoping for further treatment.
