    My little injury - concussion (with pictures)

    I went to killington VT and when going downhill on a smooth track, I apparently lost control and smashed my head on a rock. Broke a helmet and lost recollection for what happened during most of the day. My friends thought I was dead but I survived. Doctor said if not the helmet, I'd be dead though. I already ordered a full face helmet for the next time

    That's the rock I hit with still some blood on it





    This happened 4 days ago but I am still very sleepy, I hope I become normal again and can start working and going to gym..

    Glad you are OK - A friend of ours is fighting for her life in a coma since Sunday, and we hope she'll pull out of it. Her helmet was broken but unfortunately she hit as hard on the side of her face, it appears, and suffered a serious head trauma. It has been one of the worst experiences of my life to see her laying there when minutes before we were talking happily. I just hope she is "thumbs up" in bed sometime in the not-too-distant future.
