“I am sorry if I am an embarrassment but these concussions have my head all f***ed up,” he texted to his mother early Wednesday.
Family members said he’d been struggling with spells of confusion due to concussions.
If you Google “Kosta Karageorge” you’ll find plenty of news about it.
The coroner is now checking for signs of traumatic brain injury.
One of the awful things about this — and there are too many to list — is that he didn’t get help. I’m not sure if he could have, or to what extent, since I don’t know the state of his brain, and it might have been something else that messed up his head.
But who told him that concussion symptoms can get better?
Who told him that doing certain things in certain ways can help him get a grip on his life again?
Who showed him that the brain is changeable and can improve with time and effort, even if you feel really bad off at the moment?
The holidays are challenging to begin with, but dealing with them when you have a lot of concussion symptoms, makes them even harder.
What a waste. What a terrible, awful waste.
Kosta, I hope you can rest in peace.
