Concussions and a flower covered in bugs.


Today, I originally planned on writing the second half of my Getting to Paradise adventure, 
but my head isn't really working well today.

Yesterday, I fell off Mikey.

I am experiencing my first ever concussion.

Concussions, I am learning, are not much fun.  Talking and concentrating is painful, my head is throbbing and i'm exhausted.

Kinda like hangovers.

Thankfully, I wear that silly, but brain-saving, black helmet whenever I ride so I will be just fine in a couple days.

This is part of horseback riding. 
It was bound to happen sooner or later, and it will surely happen again.

But, just like in life, what do you do when you fall?
You get back in the saddle and try again.



Hope all of you are having a great Thursday!

Anyone have any concussion stories they care to share?
Pin It!

I was an athletic trainer for awhile (a few years back), and one of my athletes got a concussion during a football game. I asked him what the date was (it was November 1st) and he looked at me and said "It's October 32nd....Wait..." and then he passed out in the grass. I had to call an ambulance. : )

Hope you feel better soon!

This is reason #502 that I'm afraid of horses! They're too too big for my likings!!
Hoping you have a quick recovery

I am glad you are doing better and even got to blog about it. Last month I tried to Zumba and ended up falling and having a semi Concussion. I hit hard but nothing like falling off a horse. I love how this will no stop you, Great motto.

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! I've actually had two concussions in my 28 years. 1) I fell out of a golf cart head first onto the road 2) soccer game. So glad you were wearing your helmet!!

Yikes, best wishes for a speedy recovery. The worst ailment I've had is a sprained ankle and I hated being out of commission for a few days.

Hope you're feeling better. I feel your pain. I have a 17h thoroughbred and I swear every time I fall off, he grows a fee more inches. Be safe!
