My first week of round 2 of college started up last Monday, and gueeeess what?
I MISSED ALL OF IT.
No, it wasn't because I was lazy and didn't check my schedule (I posted it in a past journal, so that theory is a bust).
Basically, at the start of the week, I got a serious bladder infection, and was out because of pains in my abdomen, frequent, irritating urges to urinate, and small traces of blood in my urine... so I left school early on Wednesday to see a doctor, and she prescribed me antibiotics... fine. But then... I got a damn flu, on top of it. I was out the rest of the week (including today), crippled by the following symptoms:
Bad rattling coughing fits, high fever, burning congestion, eye pains (??), partial deafness (I told my mom I hear "all bass, but no treble"), chest pains, body aches, sore throat / pain with swallowing, and recently, blistering/peeling skin (most likely cold sores), and a very robotic voice (and I can't raise my voice either).
To put it simply... I thought I was dying.
These symptoms endured for like 5 days, and I can't tell you enough how much it terrified me... you see, I haven't had a flu since I was really little... so I didn't recall the severity of them. Around here, we have vaccines for H1N1 flu virus... I never thought to get vaccinated because I don't normally hang around enough people to get sick... but it didn't matter whether I was vaccinated or not, because this was a strain that we were NOT prepared for (aka, not H1N1)... many people around here were catching this same brutal strain, and in one case on the news, a child actually died from it. I took all sorts of pills to combat it, but none of them worked... and as it turned out, quite a few other people were calling the doctor with the same complaints.
I just hope my teachers don't get a bad first impression of me.
It's not like I tried to be sick... ):
Anyway, Im on the road to recovery now, but with college back on, I still don't know how much art I can really post. I'll try to get something posted whenever I can, though... from now on, I'll be taking my laptop with me when I leave for school, so there will be a greater chance if I ever have freetime while Im away. (:
That is all!
