It took me 48 years, but I received my first concussion. Riding my new 4 year old Arab, he did this spinning rear and dumped me, I did land on the left side of my head and was wearing a helmet. I did not let go of the reins and pulled him down on top of me. This is what my wife told me since my memory is foggy on what happened. I thought he crushed my ribs, but they were just bruised and banged up. I just can't believe how much my thoughts are all over the place and generally how confused I am, this totally sucks! It happened on Sunday and the Doc told me to pretty much do nothing for this entire week. Have any of you had any experience with concussions? To add, I can't believe how long it took me to write this post.
