shoulda gone to the ER if you're passing out from a lil smack on the head by a hand..
where a fraking helmet dumb ass. YDI for not going to either the ski patrol first aid place or a hospital or even a urgent care clinic.
if you hit your head hard enough a helmet isnt going to help a whole lot.... and you arent necessarily going to feel too bad to start with, I hit my head hard once and didnt feel dizzy or anything until a good half an hour later.. you people on FML assume too much...
While it may be true that if you hit your head hard enough a helmet isn't going to help a whole lot, it certainly wouldn't hurt any would it? I can't think of a single situation in which a person who is hits their head while wearing a helmet has ever regretted having the helmet on. I can however think of many situations in which people did regret not having a helmet on. If the OP wasn't wearing a helmet when they smacked their head on the ice than it is kind of their fault that the concussion is as bad as it is. If they were wearing a helmet and managed to hit their head hard enough that the helmet helped that little than it is definitly an FYL situation.
That's horrifying. I appreciate having the knowledge that something like that happened but it is still quite horrifying. As you said though, those circumstances are unusual and over all it is better to have the helmet than not. I'd say that's especially true if you are doing something like snowboarding where the risk of falling is high.
People wear back protectors, arse padding, ankle supports, gloves etc to protect them on the slopes... If you hurt these parts of the body they can be fixed. If you smack your head with enough force you can do serious damage, not something a couple of paracetamol and some rest can fix. Wear a fucking helmet.
yeah that's a concussion.. hopefully you went to the doctor after that happened
YDI for not wearing a helmet. It's a good idea to wear one while snowboarding, but it's a must to wear it while talking to your brother since he's known to deliver random head shots.
