At 2 I walked into the corner of a door and got several stitches in my forehead -- I'm presuming but don't know a concussion came with it. At 12 I was in a car accident with my face breaking the windshield and got a concussion, broken nose and deviated septum from it. At 13 I got in a fight where I broke some poor suckers hand with my head -- no concussion that I know of. Also at 13, a teacher got understandably mad at me because I had to go to the bathroom at the same time each day, which was during his class after lunch, so he brought me into the hall, grabbed me by the collar and smashed my back and head against the wall repeatedly. I don't remember this part, but my mother tells me I had headaches for a couple of weeks following that. I was in a fight at 15ish where I got another concussion. I was in another accident where the top of my head spiderwebbed the windshield and got a concussion.
At 7 I had the croupe (sp?) and was in the hospital with a respirator for several days.
I'm taller than short people and shorter than tall people.
I've had numerous paper cuts. Also, I used to eat my boogers as a young child. I know the latter two items won't help, but I'm awfully proud of those facts.
And lastly, my headaches started coming to me at age 18.
