I'm not sure if I have a brain injury, it's took days to write this. I tripped over my cat last week while carrying a small table, I remember tripping and falling but not what I fell on, I only remember waking up and I have a lot of everywhere as well as a knot on my head, I hurt everywhere but I thought I was okay until 2 days ago (in the same week) I was feeling sluggish and tired walking down the hallway and I only remember waking up on the kitchen floor feeling like a truck hit me, I'm scared now because I'm 47 I've never passed out before
