Hey, I was just stopping by to check my PM's and I noticed your post about a setback. I'm sorry to hear this happened to you. I know your a strong, confident, positive (and many other great things) person and I just know you'll make it through this.
Don't let this setback hold you down. I'm glad you came and vented/posted about it. I would write more but I'm so wrapped up in therapy everyday, I hardly have time to breathe!!!
Keep your head up,
What happened: I was randomly assaulted from behind in June of 2011. I was knocked unconscious for an unknown amount of time (less than 30 minutes) and have no memory of the event. CT scan showed contusion and hematoma of the left frontal lobe. I spent 3 days in the hospital. Diagnosed with Post-Concussion Syndrome in September 2011. Currently have Medicaid and SSI.
Current symptoms: Brain fog, anxiety, panic attacks, memory issues, confusion, problems with spontaneity, sensitive to loud noises, trouble thinking, problems with producing speech, spacing out, word finding difficulties, tinnitus in both ears, random tingling in different parts of my head and many other things that I can't explain. I'm very easily overloaded which makes it nearly impossible to watch TV or use the computer.
If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK.
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these.
