dead brain cells

I've gotten more concussions in the past month than I have in the rest of my life, and I'm starting to feel like I have a hangover ALL the time. It started about 3 weeks ago at this girls birthday party.

I was arm wrestling someone and somehow he slipped and I wanged (no other word for it) my head on a counter top. This hurt a lot so I staggered over to a couch with a wooden rim on the back and flopped down on it. My head also flopped onto the wooden back. I woke up a few minutes later.

The next day at work I hit my head on a metal shelf and had to sit down for a while in order to not throw up. I felt like **** for a week.

A few days ago I went sledding, and went down a little trail that was mostly ice. I flipped out of my sled and landed squarely on my forehead. That was number 4 in a month. I'm sure many of you can beat that, but I'm not used to it, and I feel horrible.

Share your head injury stories.

I've run into a huge metal door while playing basketball, I was trying to save the ball from going out, and I ran into it... I was pretty dizzy after that one, I hit that thing at full speed...

that reminds me of why my boss thinks i'm drunk or high every time I come into the store when I'm not working. once, as I was leaving, i practically ran into a wall and almost knocked myself out. it was totally accidental and I have yet to explain it to my self satisfactorily.

dude, i broke my nose a couple of months ago playing backyard football. i had to even have surgery to fix the airway. i'll try and figure out a way to scan or photograph the x-rays and post them. it's really crooked still, but it was ****ed up in those x's.

I have had 2 concussions...

First: I stood up on a chair, completely forgetting that there was a running ceiling fan right above me...that one hurt a little

Second: I was at work and wasnt really paying attention and walked into one of the poles on a chair rack we have.

I am pretty much a dumbass sometimes....

I've split the back of my head open in the same spot twice, both needing like 8 stitches. Once at the pool, I was runing and slipped. And the other time doing a front flip off a bed, I hit my head off a metal bar acting as support for a golf bag. Never had any concussions I don't think. Broke my nose last month with my own knee, that was interesting. Let's just say when high jumping, don't land on your shoulders, your legs tend to keep going once your upper body stops.

Yes... Because we, as a predominately male forum, are going to know what an arabesque derriere is




Me? Never had a concussion I don't think, I've also never been knocked out, broken a bone, or had a bloody nose. I've had stitches about 15 times though for various reasons.

Not really an injury, but I had an ingrown toe-nail. And I left it alone for a about 1month (VERY bad idea) which just made it to were I can't walk (BTW, it was my Big Toe). I can't exagerate enough to describe how much pain you have. My Grandmother said that she had one (not as bad as mine) and she said that it hurt more than giving birth (no joke).

Anyway, I was limping inside Wal-Mart, shopping for food, and I walked into one of the cloth racks that was somewhat by the food. I hit the very spot that hurt the most. To every else, it looked like I just randomly fell over, but the pain was so bad I blacked out, and woke up with about 3-4 people standing over me. Embarrasing. It was one of the only times I cried cas of an injury.

$500 later and a surgury with no gas. I couldn't run for about a month. But yea, don't get an ingrown toe-nail...
