Head Injuries are No Joke!

Please go to the doctor if you fall and hit your head. People are dying because of blood clots that are forming due to injuries they may not be aware of. All it takes is one visit to make sure all is well. We lost a family member to a head injury. He apparently felled and hit his head a week before a blood clot flowed to his brain. My husband's brother was removed off life support Friday.

Be smart and take care of your injuries- when you don't your family is the one who suffers the lost of you.

Sorry to hear this sad news.
It's easy to think that everything is okay. My husband lost a dear cousin this way a year ago.
People often talk about strong black men, and strong black women. . . we always love to get up and say "so and so was so positive and never complained about a thing" but there is strength in weakness. Let's stop telling people to "suck it up"!

*sigh* You and your family are in my thoughts. And I agree 100% with God's Child: we need to stop praising martyrdom and start telling people to take care of themselves. As you say, the family suffers otherwise. *sigh*

Ps ~ It feels as if I've written "you and your family are in my thoughts" a lot recently. Here's hoping God and the Universe give you the break you deserve soon. {{{hugs}}}
