Made it home from the @wolfpackninjas event in Denver!! It was such a blast! I was asked so many times why I wasn't competing. Here's the video again of my concussion at Team Ninja Warrior. More details below. I'm feeling SO much better now but just don't want to risk another fall before I'm back to 100%. Thank you everyone so much for all your support. I can't wait to get back out there!!!
Aaaand that's why I'm seeing a functional neurologist and doing brain therapy. Thanks for all your messages of concern, you guys are the best. This was in the first episode of Team Ninja Warrior Season 2 which was filmed in August. I had a chipped tooth and couldn't open my eyes or speak for a good hour after that last fall, but didn't realize I had a concussion (or two). Obviously I was devastated with the way I performed which didn't help anything lol. I put the pieces together after another fall in April that gave me the same ongoing symptoms (nausea, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, blurred vision - similar to mono which is why no one figured it out). I'm so thankful I'm getting good care now🙏🏻 Gotta send love to @nvr_gvup and @ninjaofthenorth and all the other ninjas who reached out at the course. Your hugs and kind words meant the world to me. Also, congrats to @ninja_natalie @shufit_ninja on your flawless runs💗
