The lack of knowledge and awareness that surrounds concussion injuries is quite startling. Though there has been intensive research on the causes and effects of brain injuries, there is still a lot of things that have yet to be discovered. I do not think that brain injuries are discussed enough. The severity of brain injuries is often downplayed, but in actuality has life damaging effects. After battling a concussion for 8 months, I knew that I had to share my story and help others get through their injury as well. Concussions not only affect a person physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I was hit with all four, and they contributed to my lowest and darkest moments, as well as my highest. Most of time you may feel that you will never get better, that you will live the rest of your life with a brain injury, but that is just not true. With the right routines in place, you can significantly reduce your concussion symptoms, so much so that they disappear. So, the purpose of this page is to be as transparent as I possibly can, in order to help you in all the ways that I can.
I also hope that this page will become a community for people who are dealing and have overcome a concussion. Concussion Be Gone is a place where all people can connect with one another, share their stories, and heal their concussions. Often times when you have a concussion, it is difficult to receive understanding and support from those around you, simply because they do not understand. Here at Concussion Be Gone, we are community that will uplift and support one another. I want all that come to this page to gain the knowledge to face the world and take their life back. You only live once, so let’s live it to the fullest.Happy Healing Everyone<3
