Neuro ICU

Things I’ve Learned This Month

  1. Don’t ride a motorcycle without a helmet.
  2. Don’t ride a motorcycle even if you have a helmet.
  3. Just don’t ride a motorcycle.
  4. Alcohol and guns don’t mix.
  5. Russian Roulette is never a good idea.
  6. Think twice before you tattoo something on your body.
  7. Even if you’re not an alcoholic, one night of drinking too much could kill you.
  8. Tell the ones you love how much you love them before it’s too late.
  9. Make a living will.  Save your loved ones the stress of trying to decide what you would’ve wanted when you can’t tell them.
  10. Tomorrow is guaranteed to no one.

    I had the exact same thoughts after the neuro ICU! I’ll never ride a bike without helmet again. And it’s also not a good idea to stand on a skate board and hold on to a tram (without helmet).
