I've been there, done that. A couple months ago, I got a concussion, and it lasted quite a while. All the symptoms listed were ones that I had, plus I was unbelievably cold all the time. However, a week after I got it, I did a figure skating show. If you think you have a concussion, please take your time getting back into things, at least a month. Rest and staying inside is the best thing you can do for yourself. However, my concussion healed between may and june. I still have memory problems. What does that mean?

ugh. I tried doing a handstand cuz my sis is always doing them and I was trying to show that i could do them too. I fell on my head (HARD) and I think I got a concussion. Now I know that my sis can do wat my sis can do and i can do wat i can do. Otherwise known as I'm definitley not trying again... at least for a while.

I have to have a physical this year, because It is my first year of school sports eligibility. There's a form that we have to go get from the school, and then we can schedule one. I'm just wondering what all usually happens during a physical. My mom said she didn't know for sure, so I was wondering if you did?

Hey girlie,

Check out this article - it'll give you more deets on the physical you have to get! (Usually, the one you get for school and the one some people have to get for sports are very similar.) As the article says, it's NO BIG DEAL. It's basically just a check up, and you've had plenty of those! Smile

but my county has this big policy now that we have to watch a concussion program or we wont be able to play school sports and the videos are really sad but the school boards son recently passed away because of too many concussions that he never knew of he played lax and football an sadly took his life RIP

by thepinkyyyyyyyyy on 7/10/2012 8:48:03 PM


OMG! i had like 3 concussions one was from (my latest) Lacrosse i got hit straight in the head i didnt pass out but i was feeling weird for weeks then in gym i got hit in the head with a basketball after then went on my lax teams facebook and they posted a video on concussions an i had all of the symptons so then i went to the docter boom i had a concussion n i had to miss my first game of the season an after tht ay i was in gym on the sidlines since i couldnt participate and guess wat i got hit in the head with a basketball again!

by thepinkyyyyyyyyy on 7/10/2012 8:45:25 PM


im feeling very unhappy. :_(
so all of my friends have gotten their periods and talk about it.i havnt. and i have this cousin who got hers a year ago, and when i visit florida we usually share a room, and the last time i had to share a room, i was undressing and she kept commenting on how "her boobs were 3 times bigger than mine, and i had no hips." its really annoying and i hate how all my friends have had their periods even my friends who are shorter then me and have smaller breasts then i have! plus i have had discharge for over 2 and a half years!


hey girl! I've been there. I once had a "friend" who told my my body looks like a 12-year-old boy's. You know why girls say stuff like that though? Because in one way or another, they aren't happy with themselves. It might be that her body is the one thing your cousin likes about herself right now and so putting you down makes her feel even better. Don't listen to it though, because she can't make you feel bad about yourself, only you can, and you have to stay positive no matter what anyone says. chin up, you can do it!

At our school a new rule was established that all athletes in high-impact sports (basketball, softball, baseball, football, and wrestling) are to be taught the signs and symptoms of a concussion through a guide by their coach and have to sign the packet in order to play. I think it's a really great idea and that all schools should have to do this. It only takes like 20 minutes to go over and can really be helpful if you ever do get a concussion.

My bff accidently gave a girl on the opposing team a concussion in basketball and I got one in soccer Frown
be careful.....

by softballismyBFF on 7/10/2012 2:07:18 PM


This is the only thing I don't like about basketball. You're not protected at all, and there is quite a bit of physical in it. No helmet, pads, or anything. Just a uniform, and your bball shoes.At one of my bball tournaments two girls butted heads, and since my mom is a nurse, she had to go help, and she lost her vision, and had a huge headache, and had to be taken to the hospital where she ended up being fine.

Okay so I have had 2 minor concussions. The first time was I fell off the couch and hit the back of my head hard on the wood floor. About a year and a half later, someone threw a softball hard and it accidentally hit me in the head. Is this bad? Have these concussions caused any damage that might be a problem?

Hey Girl--

Speak to your doctor about these concerns. Try and relax for now though. And don't let anyone else throw balls at your head!

if I have a letter to send you regarding both of your articles on concussions, what email address should I send it to for the best chance of it being read? It over 1,000 characters so I cannot post it as a comment. I checked your FAQ page and the masthead but all I see is and which email address would be better?
thank you so much!
xoxo, natalie :<)

Hey Girl!

I would send it to We would love to read it!

good luck

Is it possible to get a concussion if you play field hockey?

Hey Girl--

Unfortunately, it's possible to get a concussion from playing most sports. You can prevent them by wearing proper head gear and knowing the signs of a concussion. 

good luck!

My boyfriend and a friend of mine at school hit heads during flag football. Both had a concussion, but only my boyfriend went to the hospital. The other boy fell out while he was in the parking lot and then had to be helped into the car, but still wasn't taken to the hospital. The next night he had a seizure and went into what was believed to be cardiac arrest. They flew him out to Children's where they found a skull fracture. He had so much brain damage that he was a vegetable and would have had to live on a machine all his life, so they pulled the plug and he passed away. It took an amazing person out of our school district, out of a community, out of a family and my boyfriend is left feeling he murdered him. Our town is so small, nearly everyone knew him and now he's gone. Please pray for his family and my boyfriend, on which the toll of the young man's death has taken its greatest effect.

I had a concussion once but it wasnt from playing sports. I got knocked over when i wasnt looking and i fell on the blacktop and got a concussion at school. Thats probably the worst place to get a concussion. Frown
