Just wrong in so many ways

So, the other day I was really in the mood to go sledding, so I started looking around YouTube hoping to find inspiration.

Instead of inspiration, I found this great example of what NOT to do, if you’re sledding and you have a bunch of dickheads for friends  (sorry for the language, but after you watch the video, you may agree with me). With friends like them…

This is what NOT to do if you are ever in a sledding accident:

Kind of cured my urge to go sledding.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.

  1. Wow. With friends like these . . . who needs friend! And putting it on youtube yet. Wonder if the guy recovered.



  2. T –

    Reading through the comments, I believe Rex had to have surgery to have two discs in his lower back fused. Totally messed up. I hope his “buddies” learned a thing or two.

    Like, if one of your friends lands on his head and can’t get up, don’t just laugh at him and throw snowballs at him. Get him to lie still and call a friggin’ ambulance.

    I’ve been fortunate to have had much better friends than that, but a lot of people aren’t. And that’s unfortunate. But with all the talk about concussions and sports, I think the word is getting out.
