A short post tonight because I am tired. This concussion has taken and continues to take quite a bit out of me. I was told to expect this but we all like to think we are special and I wanted to think I would somehow NOT suffer the consequences to the degree I was told to expect.
It is always a crushing blow when I realize that.
I worked at the shop yesterday and today and I HOPE I didn’t mess up the transaction much. I did sell a few bikes but I keep forgetting how many.
It was all in all a normal weekend if I felt anything close to normal.
The best I can describe it is a I feel like a bubble head. It feels like my head is light and unfocused. You should see just how badly I am typing. If not for spell check and the backspace key this would be utterly unreadable.
If I was sane I would have taken a few days off from both jobs, gotten a Doctor’s note … I am not sane.
The plusses: my balance is slowly returning. I went up and down a 6-foot step-ladder today without falling. This is a plus. I shouldn’t’ have done it but I was lucky in that the customer helped me as I took a bike down from the upper rack. Normally I would never pass the bike off to the customer. I did this time.. Then I realized just how dumb going up the ladder was.
Yesterday and today were passable cycling days and I did no cycling. I don’t trust my balance that much yet.
I am fine driving. I feel ok behind the wheel of the car and I am ok sitting here and typing but, as mentioned, my typing is worse than normal.
A week to ten days my doctor told me.
Today is the 8th day. If I don’t feel much better on Tuesday I will go back to the doctor.
My weight is stable at 214 right now. Still being good, still behaving. I did have a couple of light days the last two so that is good. I expect it will start to move down again soon. I will be glad to see the low-end of 210 again.
I will be so glad to supplement the eating with exercise. Wish it would warm up
Snow predicted for Tuesday night.
I am off to sleep.
