This is painful to read. I wish I could say I can’t relate. I have had 21 (yes, twenty one) concussions due to the sports I love, the biggest offender being horse back riding. These have caused me to develop post-concussion syndrome, and let’s be clear, they are no friend to migraines. However I find myself screaming uncontrollably at some poor sot for no reason whatsoever, which is deeply disconcerting and horrifically embarrassing. Sometimes I wonder if what we see online- albeit I am being selective here in my making this statement- is in part due to real pain, not just psychic pain. It’s real all right. Christ, it’s real.
