We all think that we know everything in todays world, due to how easily accessible people are. Social media has changed the world and a lot of the time we all think that we’re getting to know everything at the time it happens.
But speaking from experience it’s rare that anything is posted in time. Secrets are meant to be kept and not everything needs to go on social media. But when someone does bring something to social media that is serious, it’s our responsibility as human beings to be empathetic and understanding.
I’ve loved Lo Bosworth for years and hey, I use her Love Wellness brand daily. I was shocked by her latest revelation online. The Hills and Laguna Beach star spoke out on her Instagram about how two years ago she suffered a traumatic brain injury.
“2 years ago in March I suffered a traumatic brain injury I didn’t tell you guys about. I was at a restaurant in lower Manhattan (which shall remain nameless bc accidents happen) and while sitting in a banquet had one of the swinging kitchen doors fall off it’s hinges and on to my head,” Lo wrote. “I was in the hospital and suffered a moderate to severe concussion for months. I took weeks off work and the road to recovery was long. I remember visiting a friend a few weeks later and feeling totally lost on 3rd avenue and 21st street, not knowing which direction to walk in.”
“I still struggle to recall words from time to time and get my thoughts out coherently 2 years later,” Lo continued. “THEN, I found out I had mononucleosis on top of it all. Also didn’t tell you guys that. One day I had to put my head down on my desk at work because of sheer exhaustion and fell asleep. I laid in bed for months and months whenever I could while continuing to work full-time at @lovewellness . 🙃”
Lo concluded, “Long story short, one of the reasons I’ve been so committed to healthy eating and fitness since the pandemic started is because it took a full year from the head injury + mono for me to be in a place where I could even consider exercising with regularity. This post is dedicated to my health and your health – precious and sometimes taken for granted. If you have it, take advantage of it. All my love.”
We’re praying and thinking of you Lo. You continue to be an inspiration to us all.
