Latest news and updates from June

I’m on sick leave

I had a bad fall the other day and smashed my head into a concrete sidewalk. I’ve fractured a front tooth and broken my glasses, and I have a concussion as well as cuts and bruises, a fat lip and a big lump on my head.

It hurts my head to use the computer or my phone and I think I need to go on ‘sick leave’ for a few days to recover.

Please be patient if you need anything from me – I will get back to you, but it may take some time!

    It’s now almost mid-August. I do hope you are feeling some improvement. Don’t push yourself. Concussions have their own unique road to wellness. Sending postive thoughts!

  2. Hope you feel better soon

    Dear June
    i am so sorry to hear that you had a bad fall. I hope you feel much better soon. You must rest and take it easy and heal. We are all wishing you a speedy recovery but you must take your time.

    Oh, no! I hope you are doing better soon! My husband recently fell and hit his head as well. His glasses are still intact and he did not get a concussion, but he did break his vertebrea in the cervical spine area = / I am glad you did not do that to yourself, too! Be well!

    Hi June:
    I’m so sorry about your fall. Please take good care of yourself and I’m wishing you a very speedy recovery. Those falls are no joke and you do need to rest your eyes and brain following a concussion. The quieter the better. Hope to see you back soon!

    If you have a concussion you will have to avoid any direct sunshine on your bare head and it may be for a rather long period. Take care of yourself!
