Post-Concussion Syndrome Please Help! 15 years old
Ok, so let me tell you guys my accident, it all started Febuary 9th, 2012, on this day it was 10 days after my birthday so i had a lot of money and i asked my neighbor to hang out and order pizza hut and he said he was with people but yeah to go over, before i went i was having headaches and now that i think of it i was taking headache medication i probably 99% had a concussion , but wasn't very familiar with them since i never had one , my brother is a high school football player and had 3 and in all he was knocked out i never was so i didn't think so whatsoever my parents were saying due to my headaches i might have one but i said no im fine because i wanted to play. so i took the head medicine no big deal then went to my neighbors and they were smoking marijuana now i have done this about 3 times in the summer and my dads a DEA agent and told me the affects and i decided to stop. hockey season was almost over and it was a 5 day weekend so i figured ill do it one more time then im done and boom my life was changed .... i took a few hits from a bowl and right away i was out of it i was really trippy walked home screming crying and eventually my parents caled me down and i went to sleep and woke up the next day all shaky still and still feeling high. for the next week i was fine still feeling like i had a weed hangover but it was no huge deal and i just kept playing hockey kept doing the usual and i was a little dizzy and light headed alot and my headaches stopped. about 3 weeks later as the date was Febuary 28th i had a JV championship game for highschool as i am a freshmen palying jv and varsity second line i played defense for fun on JV and during the game i hit someone and not a big hit whatsoever no one fell but as i did i got the worst headache i skated off to the bench and sat down for 5 minutes without telling the coaches i got one and i was now really dizzy and continued to finish the game, eventually the game thinking i was just dehydrated thats why i was dizzy since i didnt know what concussions were like even aftrer this i never stopped playing hockey the next weekend was the last weekend of my travel games so i played the game and was hitting the hole time having fun with my friends for the last game which was on like feb 30th , the day after that i was at my grandmas and i was playing basketball with my brother and dad at a local highschool gym and toward the end i got really dizzy this time i had to say something so i told my mom and dad and they said maybe im dehydrated or something and i drank and honestly the feeling went away in 10 minutes 2 days later it was tuesday in class and i went into a fog where i couldnt sit still and the hole entire time i was like talking loud to my friends and i just felt so weird and was saying to myself whats worth living this class is awful and i hate it and i was really not good then the next period i was totally fine talking to my friends and that day after school at 4 a bunch of my friends went to a friends house who has a basketball court to play and i went with them so i played all day and when my mom picked me up i felt really dizzy again i didnt say a word though and then when i got home it was the usual tuesday where me my mom and brother (my dad being at work) watched a show called the river.... at the end of the show it was time to go to bed and i got up feeling weird and continued walking to my bed and after laying in my bed for 2 minutes i immediatly got petrified something was wrong my vision was really foggy/blurry/fuzzy my eye movements were weird i have a "STROBE LIGHT" effect with them and i remember crying asking my dad being a dea agent if this could be an effect from the marijuana i smoked 2-3 weeks ago and he said no it wouldnt effect me this late like this it would of happened right away and i finally just went to sleep the next day i wake up with the same scary feeling went to doctors, said i have post concussion sydnrome didnt say anything abought the marijauana and 2 days later i went back to normal at like 9pm at night i remember being so happy it was over and sleeping then waking up the next day and it was back again.....
