    Had a concussion?


    I have. Actually, at least 3 in less than...6 months. When we lived in San Diego we had stairs. Stairs and I do not mix. The first time I was in slippers, slipped and cracked the back of my head on the stairs. I didn't know I had a concussion until days later when I went to the doctor because one pupil was dilated. I thought I was having a symptom of an aneurysm. Thankfully not but better safe than sorry. The second one I had was when I wasn't paying much attention and fell down a flight of stairs. Bad one. I can't remember if I lost consciousness or not. The last one was a day or two after the bad one. I was on vicodin for the pain and Anthony was in the other room. Yeah, fell down the stairs AGAIN. I'm a walking disaster. I can laugh about it now but at the time it sucked so much. Thankfully...no stairs here!

    You better be careful, that's a lot of head injuries, chances are you get another good one, moderate to severe it could cause some major brain trauma.

    I've had a couple, one severe when I wrapped my car around a tree, and a few minor ones, at best from being a full loving kid, and a stupid teenager.

    Yeah, thankfully I haven't done anything like that in well over 6 months. Other than being a klutz and hitting my head on the fridge door handle. Ouch, you wrapped your car around a tree? Yikes.

    They suck. Anthony flipped out with the 2nd one I had. It was bad. I was so out of it. He wouldn't let me sleep and I was so tired. After an hour of acting weird he took me to the hospital. They put me in a neck brace and did a ct scan and everything. No bleeding or trauma but not a fun experience. You're in a lot of pain afterward, too.

    Two.
    I was a hard core.. cheerleader!

    Once I was basing a stunt and I stepped too far under (Extension, full down) and the girls hips were rotating and smacked me in the nose.
    I broke her fall, and my nose. I was out for less than a minute though.

    The second time I was partner stunting and we were doing a swing dance like move and I was in his arms lovers leap style and he dropped his left arm (supporting my shoulders/back) to swing me around him by my knees?.. anyhow, he was too short and basically tried to bounce my head off the gym floor, no mats.That's what I get for choosing my partner based on his looks, rather than his muscles. .. boy was finnnnee though.


    I miss cheer!!!

    If you are feeling frightened about what comes next, don't be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don't waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you'll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart where your hope lives. You'll find your way again.
