    Hey!

    I hit my head on a metal railing while walking to college yesterday. I now have a bad headache, altered vision and I keep saying stuff accidentally like ''bus'' and ''train'' instead of ''taxi''. I am meant to be in college till 4:40pm but I am a little worried. Also, I have already had time off due to various problems. What should I do?

    Sounds like you've hit your head so hard you've developed Tourettes. Go see a doctor and try to get a slip from them as proof.

    Ngl you might die.

    But stay positive.

    It can hurt up to two weeks after you've hit your head.

    Blurred vision and speech issues after a hit to the head could be a sign of concussion. If you are still feeling those effects or anything else unusual call 111 and they can give you advice on where to go.
    Hope you're feeling better now
