I have an inflatable neck pillow that I bring with me when I fly. Naturally, I packed it for my trip to San Jose. However, once I was actually on the plane, I couldn't find it.
I checked when I got to the hotel, and couldn't find it then, either.
Once I got back, it showed up in my purse very time I pulled out my wallet. I finally took it out Friday night.
On Saturday morning, I got up and started breakfast. I noticed that it was snowing, so as soon as I finished eating, I slipped on some shoes and went out to find my phone. I walked onto the driveway, and immediately slipped.
I caught myself, took another step, and lipped again. I fell backwarsds and hit my head.
I lay there for about 20 seconds, then rolled over ahd tried to get up. I fell the first time, but the second time I succeeded. I went tthe rest of the way to the car and found my cell phone immediately. I carefully walked back inside.
I knew I was hurt, so I found my first aid book and looked up head injuries. It was pretty convinced I needed medical attention, so a half an hour later, I was at the hospital.
I didn't have to wait long, but I was fine with waiting - I didn't feel the need to read or anything, as I was content to just sit there. (I could have used my neck pillow, though, because I really didn't want to keep my head up on my own.) After about an hour and a half, I saw the doctor and was told to go home and do nothing - no TV, no interenet, no reading. Basically, the treatment for a concussion is to avoid thinking whenever possible.
I spent yesterday lying on the couch. I was hoping I'd feel better today - and I do, a little - but I spent today lying on the couch as well. (I took a shower and then needed to rest for an hour before I had the energy to get dressed.)
Of course, tomorrow is Monday, and I'm supposed to be at work. The best case scenario is that I work from home - I don't want to go in to work and then be too tired to get home.
Man, I hope I feel better tomorrow.
