My worst fear with a major concussion is that I still lose time. Several months, almost a year goes by and in my mind it was a few days ago or a month. Or repeating myself. Forgetting someone. The date. A word. A thought.

It took several visits to different doctors before my husband and I found the best neurologist to help me through my journey. My journey was going from great health to Post Concussion symptoms of vertigo, insomnia, fatigue, hallucinations, cognitive changes, stuttering, extreme anger, deep depression, problems breathing, chewing, memory loss. The list goes on.

Where Did I Go

Where did I go? At times I thought I was dead. Was I really here, I honestly didn’t know. My mind was lost or gone on vacation. For hours I could sit and stare and think it had just been minutes. Thankfully I had family that was patient with me and made sure I rested and kept up on the many exercises I was given to strengthen my mind and body.
