Illona has had 3 concussions in the past 3 years. She shares her experience with concussion recovery and dealing with post concussion syndrome treatment. She got her concussions while playing field hockey in the U.S. She says that her friends and family back home in the Netherlands had very little concussion awareness which made it difficult to communicate with them what she was experiencing. She experienced concussion symptoms such as fogginess, concussion headaches, light sensitivity, and not being able to exercise at full capacity. Her concussion doctor chose to remove her from playing field hockey, but she remains positive and is thankful that she can return to school and exercise more than she could at the beginning of her concussion recovery.
