Head Injury Sucks

So I'm all confused, sometimes have trouble speaking (no so you'd necessarily notice, but I notice), and I get nauseous and dizzy if there's too much going on around me. I have to have someone double check me at work, to make sure i don't give any patients the wrong dose. I write down the wrong numbers, skip or transpose letters. All small stuff, but so very frustrating. And the ER doc didn't put down on my paperwork that I had a concussion or a TBI. Although he did use those words in person. Actually, I haven't gotten the record for my second visit yet, maybe he will say it in that one. I had an MRI done on Tuesday just in case, and it was good. I just need to take the time to heal.

It could be a lot worse. And most of the time I'm positive and thankful. I'm just a little whiny right now. Wish I could take the day off and rest. But I have all weekend for that.

I've still been spending time with the horses, grooming and just hanging out. It keeps me grounded. :)

Sounds horrible. Head injuries are so scary. Hope you get past this soon.

I had a serious head injury back in 2011 and know just what you mean - the nausea, headache, difficulties with vision - I couldn't go to a movie or even drive as the visual motion was too much, and difficulties with balance and sleep are really nasty. Hope you're feeling better soon - most of my symptoms went away after about 6 weeks, hope yours is shorter.
