Do These 5 Things After a Concussion if You NEVER Want to Get Better
Here’s the scene: a guys’ weekend in Banff with all the fun things that they like to do in the mountains – snowboarding, nachos, steak dinners, and a couple (or perhaps more) of adult beverages.

Such an epic crash leaves you dazed, laying on the snow, and wondering if your limbs are still attached to your body.

The wind had been knocked out of my chest, leaving me unable to call to my snowboarding buddy as he casually made his way down the mountain oblivious to my condition. Thus I was on my own to pick myself up and get back to the safety of the ski lodge. Unfortunately, I had trouble staying vertical and I quickly realized my head had taken a bad knock.
Welp, thanks, good ole “friend”. Great help you are leaving me on the side of a mountain with a concussion. At least my sarcasm was still intact. [Read more…]
