Welcome to my website!
This website was created to build a bridge between what your doctor / GP says and how you deal with a concussion / symptoms in practice. Because how do you do it?
- How do I get through my days?
- How do you ‘get some rest’?
- How do I explain to family / friends how I feel?
- How do I build up my study / work hours?
- How do I know that I have fully recovered?
Unfortunately I have suffered 4 concussions during sports since 2004. Three times playing field hockey and once while skiing (concussion + whiplash). I have been all accross the Netherlands and Belgium for help and examinations: doctors have at various times called it a burn-out, concussions, overreacting, whiplash, ADHD, brain injury, etc. The good news is that by now I have fully recovered!
Here you can find everything I know and have learned. I maintain this site together with volunteers and other people who have experienced concussions. We intend to gradually update this website so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel!
This website will also function as a platform for guestbloggers. Every concussion is different and I hope that the stories speak for what people are experiencing.
Love and best of luck,
