Mariela is a mom and wife who has had 3 concussions – none of them from sports.
Her first concussion happened when she slipped in the bathroom and hit her head while giving her daughter a bath. She immediately experienced concussion symptoms such as sensitivity to light and noise and uncontrollable mood swings. She went to a concussion doctor who began to help her through post concussion syndrome recovery.
She got another concussion shortly after, before her first concussion fully healed. This time, her previous concussion symptoms were even worse.
She got a third concussion in a car accident. This time, she felt more confident in her concussion recovery because she already had an action plan in place, starting with seeing her concussion doctor immediately.
From her experience, Mariela reminds us that a concussion is in fact a traumatic brain injury and is not to be taken lightly. knowing what to do in case it happens to you can make the concussion recovery process less intimidating.
