About 8 months ago I got my fifth concussion playing college Basketball and that resulted in me missing my senior year because of the consequences it had on my health. For 6 straight months after my last concussion I woke up every day with a headache, dizziness, nausea, extreme fatigue and those were the “good days”. During the “bad days” I was actually sick because of intense migraines, dizziness and neck pain. I had to take the whole summer off after graduation. I had to quit the job I got and for months I could not really be around people or do anything. Even though I am feeling better now, I’m still not feeling like myself, but I am staying positive that one day I will be back to 100%. As challenging as it can be sometimes, it has also given me the opportunity to discover new things I enjoy doing and it made me realize what truly matters in life and what I wanted to do.
