So I work for a company that distributes auto parts, most of which are heavy. Last week I was walking towards the back room when a box of parts fell down and cracked my head like an egg.

I've been off since.

I was out for days and Tuesday, 4/3/18 was my first day back. I left that afternoon and the last thing I remember was eating at my desk. The next thing I knew was waking up the following night. I had clearly taken a shower and was fully dressed for work. I don't recall any of this. I have a litany of missed calls, voicemails, and text messages, and have basically lost a day.

The point of this is to take this moment of brevity and coherence and find out if any of you have noticed anything about me. I have evidence I've been up and about but not been myself.

I'm still awake and here, 4/4/18 10:22 PST and looking for information. Most of you should have my peronsal info, if not, PM me and I'll oblige.

Love you all ruroken

This is concerning. I think you need to go see a doctor for trauma like that. Even if you did for the initial injury. Lasting effects like that warrant further examination,

Well I don’t think you posted on SG during that time. Go see a doctor though. Get well soon!

Geez. I hope you recover quickly, Trev. Glad you survived the initial accident!

Ditto what these people said--haven't seen anything from you in a bit. Good luck getting things figured out. Take care of your brain as much as possible.

Make sure you see a doctor, and just as importantly, make sure trusted friends or family know. Bring someone with you to the appointment(s) that can trust with your personal health history.

Lots of people make full recoveries from concussions and other brain injuries, but memory loss is always a challenge for people who need more involved treatment. This is why it will be important to have trusted family or friends directly involved in your care and who can help you remember the gaps your brain might not store away. Things like doctors' appointments, therapy sessions, taking medications, etc.

And I'm sure you're already doing this, but document as much as you are able on something you keep with you regularly. On your phone, in a pocket journal, whatever makes it easier to remember and keep track of everything.

Do you actually remember this happening? Ive heard hits like that tend to actually erase the memory of it happening.

Yeah I remember very little around the time I got hit by a motorbike and my head hit the road (that was in 2004).

*big hugs* That's really scary.
You seem to have bad luck with injuries. Sad
Keep posting! Writing things down might help, right?

Not I, but reasonable inquiry.

Yeah. I was concerned about the same thing. Frankly just the fact that he thought posting here was something that would help him piece together his missing time makes me worried that he was maybe also kind of disoriented....

So was the presumption that most of us would have his personal info not the case?

I don't have his personal info but I also didn't understand how that would really help?

Perhaps the bang on the head worked like Life on Mars and brought him back to 2000, or something
Either way, I've asked how he is on Facebook.

Just think of the fabulous, busy SG he’s experiencing right now! Too bad it’s on dial-up, though.

Surely this is not the same one from back then, is it?

Sort of looks like he copied and pasted the message a bunch of places where there'd be people who knew him. Hopefully, he found something of substance in one of those other places.

Saw Trev comment on something on Facebook today, so he's still about.

Was just a comment on a post of Shaun's. Nothing out of the ordinary. I'm sure he'll be back here at some point to giggle at our ongoing concern.
