  2. TBI, Traumatic Brain Injury, is what you have and they are nothing to mess around with. I got one in 2009 Afghanistan, IED and still have issues. Several eye surgeries so I still have my eye but it doesn't focus so need glasses and recurring headaches on the right side. Do not go to sleep but rest and go easy and have someone check on you.

    If you have a concussion, you need to take it easy for a couple of days. The car can be fixed,

    You have a concussion. Rest up, take care of yourself, have a neighbor or friend check on you in person or by phone or message. When you are ready, willing, and healthy enough then go check on the car, it will still be there.
    After the dust settles and you are healthy and recovered, check and see what you need to repair the car and let us all know. I am sure that fellow members will be ready to help. Accidents happen.

    As someone who had a severe concussion go to the ER and get checked out. My wife and sister in law wanted to call 911 I talked them down to a driving me to ER. I had serious effects that lasted a month including another visit to ER which they thought I might have bleeding on the brain. Took almost a year to recover but still have symptoms occasionally. GO GET CHECKED OUT. Concussions are nothing to mess with!

  9. Sorry to hear, hope you're feeling better soon. Could have been worse if it happened on the road for sure.

    Mad Mikey, I am sorry to hear that. And I'm glad it was not worse. Take care of yourself. I can't do anything but pray for you and I wanted you to know that I have a lot of respect for you and your car.
    On a separate note, about 7 years ago I had a build thread on my 1927 model t coupe. It's nothing special. 300 Ford C4 and an 8in. 2.79 gears single barrel and single exhaust. And you wrote " you got an honest little hot rod there."
    Your kindness made me feel like a king.
    Thanks and God bless

  14. Dang! That’s tough to read.
    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! GET TO THE ER FOR A PRELIMINARY EXAM.
    You can rebuild the car, but not if you’re sidelined with some brain injury.
    Better to find nothing now, than a surprise later.

    So sorry to hear. Like everyone else has said, focus on resting up first. Your coupe will be back better than ever in no time.

    Well gee Mikey that really sucks with the good weather season coming up. But you will get a laugh when the black eyes come out and you look in the mirror and look like a raccoon. Seriously take care of yourself.

    First up, glad your alright, accidents like that can happen stupid fast. Sorry to hear about the coupe, love that car. I'm sure you will have a couple of days of feeling sick over the matter ( who wouldn't?) that's the hard part. Once the wrenches start turning you'll get a back in shape in no time. You got this.

    Damn. I’m like the rest here to offer moral support. Take care of yourself first, the shop and car can be fixed back up.

  22. First thing I'm reading this morning. Very upsetting. So very sorry to hear this, but glad you are OK and hopefully have no long term issues. I know that you said you live alone. Do you have relatives, friends or good neighbors close by there in the Hershey area to look in on you? As we get older, a "support system" becomes so very important. I recently had a visit to the ER and if it weren't for my Sister and good friends, I'm not sure where I would be today. Thoughts and prayers out to you, Mike, for a complete and speedy recovery. Sad as it is, the car can wait. Take care of YOU first. Good luck going forward..........Don.

    Holy shit. I'm so sorry. Glad like everyone else that you'll heal. Tell me if you need help, I'm 45 minutes from Hershey. Seriously. Even if it's just to shoot the shit, clean up or whatever.
    Wife had a TBI years ago, nearly died. Saying with firsthand knowledge, depression may lurk.
    If you start feeling down, hopelessness, unmotivated, talk to someone. If you're well enough, come to Westminster MD for the swap meet this weekend. Look for parts and hang out at my booth if you want.

    Hey, @mad mikey , that is an offer you should seriously consider taking up. Might be just what you need.
     
  25. Well thats a fucked up Saturday afternoon:eek: you won,t ever forget. Noticed you were just on the h.a.m.b. a few moments ( early in P.A. ) ago so i guess that is a good sign concerning the concusion . If you can post something that makes sense and with no spelling mistakes or the like then we can at least take it that your OK in the noggin. Hope you have a peacefull Sunday. Don,t overdo it.

    Concussion, delayed concussion all needs to be treated carefully and can take a long time to recover from, - as already said.
    Insurance will take care of the other stuff.
     
  27. OMG glad you are not more seriously injured
    Actually had the throttle stick Saturday on a Corvair I was test driving. Good thing it I shut it off and coasted to safety.
    Yeah definitely hard story to read. Yikes!
    Hopefully everything works out

    Like the boys all said, look after yourself first, car second. Cars can be rebuilt. Health is always most important

    Tough to hear, Mike. The good thing is that you are OK, the next step is to recover from the situation. All the Best, Carp.
