Thanks for sharing. Your narrative left me wondering about the disconnect between how to treat some disabilities such as your concussion and other invisible disabilities such as major depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, etc. My sense is that while being open about a concussion was the right thing to do--however risky and difficult it may have seemed at the time--it would be a positively bad idea to be open about mental illnesses/disabilities. I wonder what others think...

Either way, thanks again for sharing. We need more stories like this out in the open.
