Concussion Recovery: Day 4

There is only so much sitting in quiet one can do. I know I have to be careful with lights, ice my jaw and chin, and rest.

I can only spend so much time on my phone or laptop… background setting set to warm so not to aggravate my head and eyes…10-15 minutes at a time.

Listening to lots of music and podcasts, 😴😴 and look out my window at nature.

Luckily there is a park right across from me and I am like my cat, staring out watching the leaves fall, the squirrels play, and people watching…

So, did I learn something and did this happen for a reason? I will carefully walk up any stairs going forward and I will learn to rest more.😊

But seriously, one thing I notice is I sleep heavy. When I wake up, I am groggy and a bit dizzy and nauseous. That feeling goes away in a few minutes and then I realize I am really hungry.

Luckily, I am a grazer and eat small amounts all day long, otherwise no exercise and eating often would have a negative result!😀

Is all this normal? No clue…

Podcasts for today were from the Savvy Psychologist which I just discovered, and these brief podcasts are perfect for me length-wise. Check them out if you have not- definitely worth listening to.

Slept from 4:15-6:30 this morning; that was nice. Still typically sleep an hour, up 2 hours, sleep an hour, up 3 hours and repeat.

No bright lights yet… no loud noises, shoulder hurts more each day, face better though- chin and jaw not as sore.👍
