Concussions suck. Over the last 4 weeks my concussion has caused all sorts of problems and I’d thought I’d share them with you. And the key too making it all feel better. Trust me, it’s not what you’d think. .
1) - They’ve triggered a scary level depression and suicidal ideation WITHOUT the normal stages of escalation.
2) - It has hurt me physically. I still have not been able to elevate my HR above 140 without it crushing me for a day or 2. This has made Working our super boring and BJJ nigh Impossible.
3) it’s screwed with my sleep. I need sleeping pills to get a restful night of sleep and even then I’m usually waking up at 3am and stirring until 4:30. Sometimes not falling back asleep at all. And sleep is vital for recovery.
4) Gluten. Makes. Everything. Worse. It takes the 3 previous things above this and makes them exponentially worse. Cutting out Gluten has been the single biggest factor in my own TBI recovery .
Limiting my technology usage, being gluten free, and practicing gratitude (anti-depression medicine) has made dealing with this much more bearable. If you have a TBI do not take it lightly! .
Also date night w/ @melissa_hartwig made it better. You can’t beat @sushigrooveutah and a horrible movie like CRAWL (think Sharknado but instead of tornados and sharks you get hurricanes and gators). .

Margo... 7 weeks old and a perfect little poppet. I’m not going to lie the first 6 weeks of being a Mum of 2 under 16 months was challenging beyond anything I could’ve ever imagined. @benmoorephotography and I had nights where we would question our sanity. I would cry in the middle of the night when feeding Margo as it seemed absolutely impossible to do anything let alone get out of the house. Minnie was running everywhere and not listening to us as she isn’t quite at the age of fully understanding what we say. Margo had wind that meant she wouldn’t settle unless she was up right being bounced... it was intense to say the least. How people do it on their own is beyond me. We were both so run down our mouths were filled with ulcers...BUT... something happens.... something magical...the compound effect kicks in from the daily repeated actions and what was once hard becomes second nature. It’s a wonderful feeling but only comes with time. I’m happy to say I feel like the fog is lifting and we are coming out the other side. In fact I’ve actually made it down to my mums house, on my one, with the girls for a weeks trip to the seaside and hang out with the parents. Small, baby steps over time amount to a total life shift. #winning#lifegoals#family#2under2club#team
