    I'm not going to start an argument, I don't want to start one. The simple fact is I didn't go to hospital. And? I know I should have and I thank you for all the info that you guys gave me! I'm going tomorrow, to ask about my leg and head...If I die I die. Yes I risked my life, but I risk my life all the time. I'm going to be fine...

    I'm not trying to start an argument and I am sorry if you felt that way. It just worried me that you shrugged off dying so easily. Everyone is at some sort of risk and we all die sooner or later, so might as well enjoy life. I just know that a quick trip to a medical professional could save your life so that you have a little longer to enjoy the dangerous things we love so much. I hope you get what I mean. I've seen little falls worse than the big ones and head injuries (also from experience) can show up with little to no signs at all. I'm a mommy and it worries me to hear things like that. Keep enjoying life just don't hesitate to extend it
    I hope you get my drift... I'm not trying to lecture or be mean or anything like that. Guess you could call me a worry wart LoL
    Stay safe and keep riding

    I get what you mean don't worry. I'm in Gods hands so it doesn't worry me if I die or when I do (even though I want to live!) next time I'll try and get to a dr. Soon after the fall and not leave it so late, I think it was the fact that when you get a concussion you have to spend the night in the hospital that warded me off that extra bit.

    Thanks and lots of love

    I think you have little kid wants attention syndrome. For one thing, I'd find it hard to believe that your mother would choose a horse forum to decide if her daughter needs to go to the hospital. I also find it rather suspicious that if you called the hospital describing symptoms of a concussion, that they would tell you to wait until tomorrow. A lot of us thought concussion, which would be bad enough, but something like that could also be a brain bleed. That could result in all kinds of horrible things....some things worse than death. Perhaps you didn't know that, but a hospital would.

    I really do hope you get the help you need.

    My mum didn't know, wether she should take me or not. Is there a problem with that??? She called the advice thing after any sickness I felt disappeared asking for advice, they didn't say to take me tomorrow they said to monitor me, it wasn't a bad concussion anyway. Next time I post on this fourm I'll be sure to post what you lot want to here, not the truth. Any way thanks for the comment, I'm sorry if I sounded like a child or that I wanted attention or whatever.

    Don't worry I already have all the help I can get.....

    Agree with the OPs. But, just to add if you hit your head while wearing your helmet you'll need to replace it as it will no longer provide you with protection as the materials can be compacted.

    As a parent, if I were unsure whether to take my child to the hospital, I wouldn't waste my time on the least qualified people I could find. I would call my child's on-call emergency doctor and have a conversation with them.

    No, we don't want you to post on here in case you have a real medical emergency. In that situation, you need to see a qualified medical professional. Heck, even when we did give you sensible advice, you didn't take it.

    You can throw all the tantrums you want. You posted in the pretense that you had a real medical emergency. All we were doing was trying to help.

    I think if you were getting all the help you need, then you wouldn't be crying out for attention.

    Again not trying to provoke an argument but as a parent I do agree. Medical emergencies should not be questioned online. If in doubt go to the ER. My lil brother has hydrocephalus aka water on the brain from meningitis as a baby. Often he has no symptoms at all. He is only 22 and he could die anytime if he isn't monitored by someone who knows the head/brain... just one example how serious and vulnerable your brain really is and how rare that signs show up. This post seriously scared me as a parent. You can replace nearly everything in your body or learn to live without it including your heart but your brain is irreplaceable.

    With the sincerest of regards,

    Eta: its sounds weird the way I worded it but you can get a heart transplant not live without it (bad at wording :/), you can't replace your brain though...

    I didn't think I was hurt until they waved the x-ray in my face showing my leg was broke at the hip. Just thought I had a bad sprain, pull, something like that. Better safe than not.
