I'm interested to hear from folks who have been injured and considered giving up climbing. Given that this is a climbing website I don't really expect to hear from too many former climbers but your feedback would be immensely interesting.

Climbers who have considered giving up climbing because of injury and why you continued is of interest to me.

I mention concussion specifically. It's known as an invisible injury and it's effects are somewhat more insidious than regular blood and guts. I expect there are a few climbers who have suffered a concussion and if you were lucky it was minor and abated quickly.

Anyone out there had to deal with a concussion, an avalanche, a partner that stopped breathing, a guilty conscience, or anything similar that caused them to consider giving up climbing?
