Well, I always have been accused of having a "thick skull" Were there any doubts, they're now gone.
…so, were there any doubts, they’re now gone.

 

Minor brain damage, but as you can see, I’m taking no chances.

It’s the good ol’ fall/faint — faint/fall deal.  Among several other faint/falls, I fainted and collided my car with my own carport.  Coming-to some time later (the sky seemed darker) was weird. I could not remember (and still cannot) where I had been, nor colliding with the carport.

At that point, I knew I needed help.   Went to the hospital.  They found several subdural hematomas.  However,  these were self-healing.  So, it was not necessary to drain the subdural area.

The headaches and disequilibrium continue.  But much more mild than before my hospital visit.  And, to my knowledge, I have not fainted since before the hospital.

Yet, if the serious trend returns, I can’t think of any warning.  Thus the helmet plus a walker.  And I’m selling my car, and then turning-in my license (turning-in the license later because until I can sell the car, no-license probably would violate the car-lease terms).  I shall not drive again.  I couldn’t live with the death or serious injury of another, because of my continuing driving despite all these warnings, on my conscience.
