Concussion recoveries can take some time. One helpful aspect is to keep a journal. Here's the Concussion Recovery Log, developed by me, a concussion survivor. It's based on my own experience and current practices in treatment.
The log also contains tracking details and unique items that aren't generally tracked.
I wish I had this when I was going through my recovery. You can! I hope you find it helpful. Take a look at the features! - Julie
The log is an Excel file, but it's no ordinary Excel file. I designed the file so that it displays without gridlines. There's much white space. That makes it much easier to read. You can turn the gridlines on if you'd like. See the sample below. What's nice about having it in Excel is that you can export the information if you'd like. You can also easily print each worksheet and enter information by hand if you'd like. It's quite versatile. You can use it online, export it, and print it. So you can have an online version or a printed version that you could put in a notebook or something similar.
You can download the file to your computer or to Dropbox. You can download it for up to one year. If you misplace the file or need another new version, you'll be able to download it any time.
At this time, the log is not available for those residing in countries subject to the VAT. I haven't set up processing for that yet, and have to research it first.
For further questions, see the FAQ page.
Here are excerpts from three worksheets in the log. One shows a detailed log (daily tracking), smaller log (medical), and open-ended (journal). Apart from the journal, each of these has much more information - especially the daily journal. I've blocked out some of the information for the sample.
Even though the log is in Excel, I've designed it with usability in mind. I've turned off gridlines and used design features to make it more readable. If you'd like, you could turn the gridlines on at any time.
"I have tried different methods for logging my activity & symptoms for the past 5 months. I finally decided to purchase your log yesterday and love it!" - Cindy
"It was most helpful during those moments when I was doubting my recovery and I didn't know if I was getting better or not. Being able to look back and see how I had improved was so important to me, and very helpful to report back to my doctors and therapists." - Purchaser
