I am ... A Survivor

My story starts on a softball field in 2004 at age 14. My symptoms are as followed: sick to my stomach, brain freeze, ringing in ears, ability to walk, and slurred speech. I had no complications afterwards. Fast forward to today and I am 28 and I am starting to have complications now. Memory problems, Pseudobulbar affect (PBA), and my speech is getting harder to understand or I mix my words up or stutter.
