Got my first semi-major disc golf injury Saturday! I claimed a concussion. 'Twas rather icy for league at Kaposia. Scratch that. It wasn't rather icy. It WAS an ice rink. Kaposia is rather hilly also. As you can only guess, it made for a ton of slipping and sliding. I should have been smart and not played. I went down on our first hole, hole two. It was a hard fall, but just landed on my butt. It didn't feel good since I have broken my tailbone before.
I was doing good up until hole 14. I stayed on top of the hill since everyone was putting from below and I told them I would grab their discs to save them what I was going to have to go through since my disc was above the basket. Yep. I slipped for probably about 20 feet before sliding into a tree, where my feet came out from under me. I remember Timmy Gill yelling at me asking if I was ok from the next fairway over. I remember saying I was fine and getting up with my head already throbbing. Nurse in my group checked for concussion signs and said none were present. I asked if I hit my head, and no one saw if I did.
I finished the round and went home. Started getting really tired and the headache kept building.My neck started to get stiff too. Went over to a friends to use the hot tub for the rest of my sore body, and kept falling asleep. He said I looked "punch drunk" and almost took my keys from me. I drove home and called him so he knew I made it home. I woke myself up every 2 hours per his orders.
Still not back to normal tonight. Headache, stiff neck, slow reactions. Ugh. Schoolwork has been shoved aside. I'm hoping profs will understand. I'm taking it easy for the next couple weeks. No DG for me unless there is NO ice on the course. This was my third concussion and I don't need anymore.
