Hey everyone, so heres the deal. Im 20 years old, starting to be borderline overweight, attempting to go back to school. Im 285 pounds and about 6'6. Ive had 7 concussions in my life. The first was when I was 6 years old, Brother punched me and my head bounced off the headboard. I never had any problems with it again till my freshmen year of high school. From my freshmen year of HS threw my Freshmen college year I had 6 more concussions. These are the ones I went to the doctors for, my doctors and I have suspected that could have had more minor ( or so called ) in practice.
I have been dealing with chronic pain for the last 6 years of my life. Headaches and migraines have become everyday occurrences. I have Extreme light sensitivity, my balance is off, and of course the general overall pain. Stress and other normal factors just make it worse. I have had HORRIBLE sleeping problems, Cant fall asleep.. once I do fall asleep i find it almost impossible to wake up.
What I have been trying to do to help it. I recently moved away from home for the 2nd time, first was for school when I was going to play Football at a Division 1A school, the 2nd time was to the D.C area. This was to get away from an extremely stressful Family life, where I was working full time and taking care of three children. Life was hell. When I moved to Washington dc I started working 50 to 60 hour weeks at an afternoon night shift job. I gained about 35 pounds, and ended up in worse shape then I was before. My internal health has gone worse as well, blood pressure and cholesterol have both shot up.
Looking for help..
Im tired of life being a living hell. It hurts to wake up in the morning and I can never fall asleep. My eyes hurt, I have either a headache or a Migraine. This has all become the mundane. I live with it and just push on threw my day. I dive into my work and try to forget about everything that is going on. More and more I am having extra pains, From inside my head. They hurt like nothing else. Its a shooting, stabbing pain from deep inside shooting to the outside. When I move quickly, hear something loud, or bright light I am greeted by my newest nemesis. My life is spiraling into do a depression, very painful and dark.
Does anyone know how I feel? I just want to talk, I feel that would help. Im not looking for a miracle... I just want to feel better..
