Just how dedicated is Tammin Sursok (ex-Colleen, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) to being a social media content creator? Well, she gave herself a concussion while making her most recent parenting video!

Sursok has been creating humorous momlife videos lately, as well as fitness and beauty content, that she shares on her Instagram and TikTok accounts. On March 27, she shared a funny video poking fun at newborn photoshoots, where parents swaddle their babies up in blankets and adorably pose them on a bed or in a basket. For the skit, the Y&R alum wrapped herself up in a blanket to demonstrate — and in a bit where she meant to tip over in the basket onto the mattress, she ended up falling off of her bed! “I almost went to urgent care because I landed on my head falling off the bed,” Sursok captioned the Reel, then admitting of daughters Phoenix and Lennon, “I did this to my kids as babies.”

Unfortunately, since Sursok did hit her head pretty hard, she later confessed that she visited her local emergency room the following day to get checked out after a persistent headache. In a follow-up post, she shared a selfie from her hospital bed, smiling despite wearing a neck brace, and listed what she’d learned in the aftermath of her stunt. “Things I’ve learned in the last two days: 1- Concussions can happen doing the stupidest things. And when it happens, you might have to show or tell the doctor what you were doing. And it could be the most embarrassing moment of your life. 2- Concussions can happen 24 hours after you do that stupid thing, so watch for symptoms. 3- CT scans are weirdly soothing and when pumped with anti-nausea medication can make you nap. 4- When you have small kids, the ER is like a mini vacation. 5- Neck braces are good to sleep upright so maybe I’ll take one home for the plane.”

Sursok, who splits her time between Nashville and Australia, admitted in a reply to one commenter that thanks to her skit, she had video evidence to show the ER doctor exactly how her injury happened. “He asked. And I showed him,” she noted.

While a concussion is certainly a serious matter, it sounds like Sursok was able to keep a sense of humor about her injury, as she cracked a joke while thanking her followers for the well-wishes. “Feeling slightly better. Just a bruised brain and ego. And the scan showed I did have a brain. So that’s good.”

We are glad to hear that Sursok is feeling better!
