Tonight was my first derby practice since I hit my head. I was so freaking excited about going and playing on the concrete floor.
I pulled out my bin o’gear.
I swapped my wheels to indoor wheels.
I tried on my Siren’s uniform.
I took a picture of me in it.
I cried a bit realizing I’d never wear it as a Siren.
I swapped out the top for a different one.
I went to derby practice.
Beginning of practice went well.
I was keeping up with the expected pace for warm up.
And then… I don’t know what happened.
I started getting dizzy.
And then my head started hurting.
And started hurting more.
And it felt exactly like the headache I had after I hit my head 4 1/2 weeks ago.
I did not gear up.
I’m so freaking pissed off about it.
I was looking forward to being on skates – I need derby like I need to breathe. I need the break. I need the physicality. I need to skate.
And it didn’t happen.
So yeah. I’m not happy about this. It’s suggested I should go to the doctor this week because the headache came back.
I may go. I may not. It depends on if I wake up with a headache tomorrow.
So this is me, in my Siren’s uniform – probably the last time I’ll wear it – but I wanted to see how it looked on me. Next time I take a picture it will be in my Gold Pain Uniform…
Time to chill again… I want to be on skates… but my brain is more important…
