Not a big deal, it’s mild, but definitely a concussion and not just a headache. So yeah, I am writing this blog with a concussion and man… it really takes a lot of work trying to think and physically press the right keys. So if there is anything here that does not make any sense.. there is a good reason probably. I have to wear these special glasses to watch the computer screen, so it doesn’t bother my brain (don’t know if that makes sense).
So here is what has happened. Yesterday, like any normal day. Nothing unusual at all. I went to open the car door, and from what I can remember, the door flew back and smacked me right on the noggin. I think a strong wind must have pushed it towards me or something. I don’t remember much now which is weird, but I didn’t think that I hit my head hard. There’s no bruise or anything showing any signs of trauma.
But I do have missing pieces of memory in that moment, that’s for sure. Also, I had zero sense of balance, and any sounds and lights seem to really irritate me. I also had a hard time focusing on conversation and doing anything that would have been a simple task. And apparently, I put the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the fridge. Who knows what else objects I misplaced!
Anyways, everyone, be careful out there. You don’t have to do something extraordinary to get injured! Also, if you ever had a concussion before, it’s not a fun world, especially when you have a lot of responsibilities to do. I am forced to move slower, and it is really stressful. I am told not to think too much, but I think and worry because I have to move so slow, not to further damage by brain! So it’s like a catch-22.
Anyways, I do want to encourage people to be safe and always careful. Sometimes the unexpected things happen, and we have to stay sharp and have a strong constitution and unwavering hope. When unexpected things happen, it may force us to slow down, do our best to stay calm, and trust everything else on God. I have no idea how to prepare lunch and dinner for the kids today, but I trust in God to give me simple ideas and hopefully our cabinets are fully stocked with cereal because they can make that themselves. I just have to be more aware to put the milk and cereal in the proper places. Stay safe and God bless you all!
Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
