I was playing soccer this morning and having a really good game when some no-talent ass clown blind sided me w/ a cheap shot check into the boards. Mind you, checking is not allowed in indoor soccer. My face hit the edge where the boards meet the glass and my head hit the glass, itself. Fifteen minutes later, I woke up w/ an EMS crew standing over me. It was the first time I've been knocked out cold -- when I finally came to my senses a bit, I didn't even know what month it was, and got lucky on my answer of "2006" for the year. Turns out, I got best case news. After X-rays and a CT scan, it was determined that I had no broken jaw, despite the fact it looks like I have a baseball sized dip in my mouth, no internal bleeding, and no fractured skull. I do, however, have a concussion. I'm supposed to see my regular doctor in two to three days as follow-up and to get a timeframe for when I can lift weights and play sports again. I am planning on seeing him, but for those who have had concussions, what is a typical recovery time needed before one can resume regular athletic endeavors. I'm already stressing over having to miss workouts.
