OT but need advice: recovering from a concussion Rodgarnay51 Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 3,214 Likes Received: 2,975 Mar 24, 2020 #1 I figured since many of you are ex-football players someone might be able to answer my question. What do I do to pass the time so my brain heals? Sarcasm is fine but I'm serious. I got my bell rung pretty good last Thursday and I've never had a concussion before. I'm told it could take weeks before the symptoms (mainly dizziness) are gone. I have a very active mind, I'm restless by nature and I just can't slow it down. I tried to take a nap today without success. When I'm awake, when I'm home I'm always either watching TV, reading, listening to music, talking on the phone, working on projects or on the computer. None of these are something I should be doing, but WTH I can't sleep 24/7! Any ideas? I can do a little bit more but I still get dizzy and need to take it easy. Anything helpful is appreciated.
