Blerg…I never knew concussion could be so debilitating..I'm still feeling awful (and my anxiety has turned up to join the pain party as well)..I've got the heart palps, nausea, dry mouth, just want to curl up in a ball and never get out of bed woes.  

 

Sorry to whine, it just (major panic) doesn't happen to me much anymore and it HITS HARD when it does.  It makes me remember how awful this whole business is....

 

okay, enough..put my head back to bed

 

I'm going to hug my kitten now eyes

and then laugh at the big hole I now have in my forehead - ahhh! Silly meg..gentle chuckles..

Hi Meg,

I am happy that you popped in. All in all, I hope that you are feeling better. I can imagine that it is frustrating with all that is going on right now. I hope that you are back to new soon.

Take care

Meg,

I'm glad you're feeling well enough to post a bit. That's a good sign. Hang in there and take good care of yourself (and let kitty help). I sure hope some of the anxiety goes away once your head stops spinning. Sending lots of good wishes your way for your health and everything else.

Hugs,

Meg,

I know exactly how you feel about the concussion.  I had a bad headache for a couple weeks after mine last month.  I'm soooo sorry to hear about your fall.  If it will help you feel better and give you a good laugh yeah , mine resulted from the stupidist thing.  I have an SUV and have had it for over a year now and for some stupid reason, as I was pulling the hatch back part down, I hadn't cleared it all the way with my head and I hit myself in the temple area with the corner of the hatch.  I wasn't laughing at the time, but now it seems soooo stupidly funny.  Do you have a big old knot on your head or just a hole (love your description of it).  I had a knot about the size of a ping pong ball.

I am sending you lots of well wishes and thoughts and prayers and hope the anxiety subsides as well as the pain.  Did the doctor tell you to apply ice to your "hole"?  Mine did.  I held a bag of peas on my temple for about 10 minutes every couple hours.  It did seem to help some with the pain/headache.

I feel like a walking disaster zone these days myself.

Again, hope you are feeling much better SOON.

Hey Meg,

Hi there sweetie. :-)   I am so sorry your bump on the head has got you spinning.  I know when ever I get physically ill the old anxiety creeps in as I start to wonder if I will ever get better.

You know I am here for you and I could make you some virtual soup.  I promise to put good things into it.  Really, no  cauldron soup for our Meg.

Your other issues are probably contributing to the increase in anxiety as you cannot handle any emotional issues when your feeling ill and dizzy. I wish I could come and drop in to tell you how great you are. You need to believe in yourself.  You will beat up this old anxiety, we will help you.

Meg Hugs

Meg,
 
I'm glad you popped in long enough to let us know how you are feeling, but I'm sad to hear that you still aren't up to par.  Just take it easy and hopefully the spinning will go away soon.  But don't forget to call your doc if this doesn't disappear soon.  In the meantime, I will also be sending some great virtual chicken soup your way.  I hope it helps you. 
 
Don't worry about the board, we have you covered - we don't want you coming back to early while not feeling well.  When you need the HW "fix" just come in to let us know how you are doing and NOTHING else.  Don't forget, I sick those "stay in bed" fairies on you to make sure you take care of yourself.

Thankyou all for your lovely warm wishes..it makes me feel not so anxious and alone.

Dianne...I do feel a bit silly! Thanks for sharing that story..I guess it can happen to anyone can't it? I don't have a bump, just a big scab in the middle of my forehead and two black eyes (not this season's fashion I can tell you!)

Kitt, Wen, thanks for the soup (but can you get the fairies to heat it up for me - they won't let me get up!!)

Percy, Tony, Karen..you guys are just wonderful..thankyou.

I'm not up to much yet, I had to go back into hospital on thursday..the head injury was a little worse than expected and I blacked out again..so I really need to stay in bed or they are threatening a hospital stay.  Noooooo!

Lyn, I didn't forget you! Huggles from little s.i.s.

OMG Meg, I am so glad your ok.   Those closed head traumas are nothing to take lightly. You stay in touch with that Dr. and don't you worry about us..............it is you that needs the love and care and you got it sweetie. You will get better but yes when you bounce your brain around a bit it is not always happy about it.  redface

The site is fine and you know we take care of our own and you belong to this family so we are all right here and if you need anything................let me know.....email if you want to.  Yes stay down for awhile. 

Working in ER I saw a lot of black eyes and it is amazing how many people run into doors................... devil

You have my hugs and hot soup is coming your way, the fairies have their flying orders.

Hugs
Kitt

I believe sometimes it does NOT hurt to curl up and let those tears fall where and how they may .........
Cleansing your soul does help IMHO

Glad you are here

OOOH! designer sunglasses..it's almost worth looking like a raccoon for those!! Thanks Kitt..

Brenna, thanks for your understanding and kind words..it is getting better now..slowly..gently..and I agree with Lyn, sometimes we need to stay under the bed covers and have a good cry (especially if we have designer sunnies waiting for us to hide weepy eyes lol)

Lyn ((hugs)) thanks as always for support, I just know that you understand this.
