Anyone whos suffered a pretty bad concussion, have you ever had trouble getting back into it? Like you felt slow and slugish, almost like you had forgotten how to ski a little bit? Just wondering, Thanks
even if all the symptoms are gone? I can do everything fine outside of skiing like tasks and shit without symptoms and the first time i came back I was using someone elses boots? Could that have anything to do with it?
“The reason why Tanner and all these skiers take the risks they do is beacause they love it, and that’s it. You only know what I mean if you really love something, it’s like you would die for your wife, and that is the only thing that is relateable probably to someone who doesn’t ski” - Eric Iberg

concussions definitely throw your life off a bit. i went skiing about 1-2 weeks after a pretty bad concussion and it felt very weird getting your balance back. my mental quickness is all together still slow after that but skiing only take a couple of days to get back
just wait it out. if your feeling shitty about skiing then you still can't do anything athletic. last time i had a concussion had a good three weeks before i was feeling normal again. or maybe i forgot what normall really is, oh fuck....
Whatever you do do not ski again untill you are fully healed. If you hit your head again, even a minor hit, you could get second impact syndrome. It kills literally, and if not you will have crazy brain damage. Google it
Same exact thing happened to me once when I tried to put two gallon containers of milk into the fridge at the same time. Projectile vomit everywhere the minute I lifted them off the counter...- El.Gato

i know the kid it has been one month one week since his concussion. In the concussion he passed out for like 3 mins. He can do everything fine just like before in the ways of school work/normal life. And the skiing was okay he was using someone else's boots that were wayy too big for him. Like cranked all the way tight but still loose on his feet. He also didn't have poles for the first time this year.
Sometimes when you don't have a solid health insurance plan it isn't that easy to see a doctor. Especially when you are in Maine and your options for health insurance are super limited. Also its not always going for Dr. NS more like going for how long did you guys take as skiing isn't the same as normal contact sports.
