*Traumatic brain injury sustained Oct. 23, 2017; medical treatment completed May 2018*
At first, I thought I could rally and just get back to work a week later. I soldiered through a week, but it was too much.
You know the test - the emergency room doctor began slowly moving a light back and forth, and I’m pretty sure he knew I was being stubborn; pretending it wasn’t making me feel nauseated. I was determined not to fold. I stared at the light thinking, “he’ll say, ‘here are some meds, take a few days, and you’ll be fine.’”
Instead, he picked up the pace of the light motions to the point where I felt like he was using an invisible, giant suction cup to pull my brain out through the back of my skull. The medical staff moved in, expecting to have to catch me mid-faint.
