Concussions suck

It's true. Don't hit your head on stuff.

I would tell the story, but there is no story worth telling.

I was stepping out of the shower, and I hit my head real hard on the shower curtain bar.

It sucked.

Had a minor concussion when I was about... idk, ten-ish. Kinda grayed out for a couple seconds, then got a headache. Good times.

Got one when I was 11. Sledded face first into a flag pole, and proceeded to tumble down the hill unconsous, on film. Good stuff.

I got a concussion during a soccer game once. I collided with a kid and hit the ground (rock solid) with my head. I didn't black out or anything, but it looked like someone flashed a camera right in my eyes.

I had a concussion one time....

It was during a basketball game I was playing in. I ran to save the ball from going out of bounds and smacked my head straight onto a wall. I hated it, I was out of commision for a few days. I was constantly dizzy and would have short term memory lapses...it sucked.

Skateboarding, had a HUGE gash in my head, could see my skull clearly, hurt like a *****. If I hit it hard enough i could've gotten brain damage or something. (I did an air off an 8 ft. quarterpipe, but I transfered too far and landed in the 6 ft. deep bowl head first on a curb on the coping beside it)

Hahahaha. Your pain is my comedy.


But really, concussions suck. I see plenty of guys on our rugby club that get them. The real bad concussions are funny to talk to the guys who have no clue where they are or how they got there.

Haha, yeah, it was a bad way to get a concussion.

I wish I could have done something cool to get it.

Yep that's a grade 1 cuncussion. I've had them a few times. Twice playing rugby and once playing baseball. Never gotten nocked out but that white flash on impact is your brain "cuncussing" or something. THen your head feels like its gonna implode for a few days and you forget homework assignments. lol.
