Yeahhhh. Yesterday was gym, which meant racquetball. And my friend was swinging her racket around, and--you guessed it--hit me smack in the face. I was wearing goggles, thank god, although I think that the cost of protecting my eye was making the whole bruising thing rather more painful. At any rate... I got a ridiculous bruise on my right cheekbone that started to swell almost immediately... painnn. I got some ice there at the college, and my teacher was testing to see if I was concussed, with coordination test thingies, and I had a tad of trouble standing on one foot... got a little freaked out... Because, see, I've had far too many concussions (4, to be exact), and thank god they've just been minor, or I doubt I'd still have the brainpower I have. So I really, really would not want another. The way I knew I didn't have a concussion was I kept asking myself if I did, if I was losing coherency etc. And I was able to describe the symptoms of concussions in really big words, so I knew I wasn't concussed ^^ (It was just a little freaky, because I'd been up late working on a paper the night before and I was a little out of it, and it seemed like I had the standard incoherency thing...) But all's well now. I just have a bright purple eye that looks like it's makeup-gone-wrong (I got the suggestion to get matching makeup and do the other eye, and make some sort of butterfly pattern......), and I have to eventually fill out an incident report. Grr. Whatever. Cheers!
