Yeah the last one I got when I was 16 and I definitely did not approach that right.

This one I have been ultra cautious but as you grow older you have that perspective of how important your brain is. The doctors have been happy with my approach and my fiance has been incredible with keeping me really protected from anything until I was ready for it.
It's great that you've got someone so incredibly caring with you to help you through it. You've got an amazing woman there :)

We're now going to make you play cricket wearing this:

Hey everyone!

Thank you for all the very kind well wishes and thank you @Crystal for passing on Jacki's message. I'm officially easing back into things over the last week. I have returned to work for three days last week and will be doing four this week, luckily I mainly work from home so don't have to travel and have been able to ease into it.

From a concussion perspective, I'm no longer suffering from headaches or light sensitivity. I still am taking regular breaks from spending too long focused on something (I miss gaming) but with the return to work I feel like things are improving each day on that front. My doctor cleared me yesterday to return to cricket training this week and I will return to playing the following weekend should all proceed well.

Glad to hear that you’re healing up. The headaches were the worst part for me, so hopefully those weren’t too hateful for you. If you heal up anything like I did, the light sensitivity will be the lingering symptom… you’ll find yourself adjusting the backlight lower than normal, or having a headache roll on if you spend a lot of time in the sunlight.

Yep the light is one thing I have noticed that seems to be a watch item. Luckily it's summer and we are just using natural light coming through the curtains and don't need to use bright artificial lights.

That and staring at a screen given I work on a computer all day will be things I'm going to have to get used to managing.

If your computer and phone has a blue light filter, I’d recommend using that while you’re still on the mend. Not entirely sure about the logistics of why it helps, but it was suggested to me after I took a hit to the head and it helped tremendously when I still had to finish up the work week.

I have a blue light filter on my phone and really like it. It's so much easier on my eyes, especially after staring at a computer screen all day. If anyone struggles with eye strain, I highly recommend it

Thanks guys, yep I have all my devices both on dark mode (where possible) and blue light filter on my personal mobile and work computer. They're getting me a blue light filter for my work mobile but given I'm not in the office it's getting shipped here.

I'm very thankful that the Office suite of programs all have dark mode as I reckon Excel would have ruined me by now if not!

Hey mate, so glad to hear that you're on the mend. You were missed around here, but it was pretty hilarious that you had the first wolf win on GWF while being completely absent. Somehow only you could pull that off 😂

Happy to hear you're starting to feel better.

Not sure if your work will allow it but when I returned to modified work after my second concussion I wore sunglasses with the blue light filter lens.

It helped a ton.

I’m pretty sure windows has a setting to filter out blue light. One of my coworkers gets migraines and her monitors are tinted yellow from a setting built in to windows

This is Australia we're talking about. Fill that ball with beer or they're opting out.

I dunno how you can got gonked on the head like that and go back to playing. Balls of steel, man.
I'm not sure that it takes any bravery, maybe stupidity and love of the game.
