I received a concussion five years ago as a result of a kid trying to show off playing volleyball and hitting me in the head. His five second mistake had caused me five years of constant pain. I've had a headache ever since the accident and had to teach myself how to learn again. I also have a lot of memory issues from my post concussion syndrome that can make life really hard. I have many dark days where I wish I wasn't in pain anymore. My Zox strap is a constant reminder to never forget that my brain matters, and that I will get the help I need someday. It reminds me to never forget to take life one day at a time, and that there are brighter days ahead.
