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 , 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.
Thou shalt smile and have a nice day. It frustrates those who have other plans for thee.
