I fell again about 10 days ago and did not think I had hurt myself very badly. I did hit my head on the back, but I made sure I fell in the grass and not the pavement. Well, it looks like I have jarred my head pretty well. I went to my doctor and she said she did not think I had a concussion. Good to know.
Google says the dizziness from a concussion lasts at least for 3 weeks. But can last up to three months. I hope my dizziness and balance get better before then. This was a fall but not due to my clumsiness - but due to a break and elevation of our pavement on my apartment grounds (a senior one). After my fall, my report to the office, and a report to the main office, they finally put up tape and a caution sign.
Many neighbors want me to sue, but I am not really hurt, according to my doctor. BUT she wants to see me every month for a while, instead of every 6 months. So no concussion - just possible temporary dizziness from old age. WE will see.
I am thinking of dying my hair blonde so people will think I am a dizzy blonde: instead of dizzy old lady. I am going to talk to my hairdresser when I get my next haircut.
