Post-concussion posts: writing about recovery

At the end of August I fell off a horse and got a concussion.* If you had told me back then the symptoms would be severely affecting my life now, almost three months later — well, let’s just say I’m glad I didn’t know then.

For the next while I’m going to post regularly to my blog about what it’s like living with the concussion symptoms I have, and what I’m learning along the way.

Communication of any type is still hard for me, so posts will be short, probably not very well-written, and might have more spelling and grammatical mistakes than I would usually tolerate. Ideas and themes will probably be all over the place. Maybe my writing will improve visibly as I recover (following The Regime from the concussion clinic — more about that later). But for now what I’m living is going to be here on the screen in all its disconnectedness.

*I was wearing a helmet, and I know how lucky I am, and that it could have been much, much worse.

Please wear a helmet when you are doing things that might lead to a head injury.
