This concussion has really done a number on me. I finally got the headache to stop, but sleeping last night was difficult. I couldn’t find a comfortable position that my head and body both agreed with, so I struggled quite a bit, and then I was up at an un-Godly hour worrying about trash pick-up and recycling. Where did that come from?! I have no idea. Today it’s extreme sensitivity to sound (more than usual), dizziness, balance issues, and my brain just doesn’t seem to be able to hold on to a coherent thought. It feels like someone slipped medication into my system, except I know that didn’t happen. And of course, the actual spot I hit is now starting to show the damage. Initially I expected blood and lots of it, but it’s basically the beginning of a nasty contusion that I’m sure will continue to hurt until it’s completely healed, which can take months. I have a hard head, but now both sides are experiencing those little twinges of pain whenever I turn or move too suddenly, and the birds that have been shrieking in my trees since 4:00 a.m. sound more like trains going through my head. Whatever happens, I am hoping for a halfway decent, possibly even restful weekend. It is Thursday, right?
