OMG *stabs day repeatedly screaming DIE DIE DIE*  
1. Being sick always makes me pissy as hell. And pathetic, also.

2. Waiting in health services for FIVE HOURS does not help much either.

3. Being told over the phone by health services "Oh, it's obvious that you have strep. Come in and we'll do the test, but we'll have antibiotics on hand because it's really just got to be strep." and then showing up, having both tests done and finding out that you in fact have a bloody *virus* that nothing at *all* can be done about really just chaps my ass.

4. Then being told that I just need to "sleep" for the next 7-10 days, when it's the END OF THE GODDAMNED SEMESTER and I've got SOMUCH stuff due in the next few days more than chaps my ass, it just...gah. I just blinked at the nurse and was like, "Uhm...right."

5. My workshop story is due tommorow. I finished it, but am muy insecure re: it. But finishing it meant spending HOURS UPON HOURS in the library tonight. Also, the library is cold.

6. Why do good things only happen when they're *inconvenient*?

7. I hatehatehatehate being sick.

There are more things I could whine about, but really, I've whined enough in the past couple of days. What all of you should go do is read the fabulous latxcvi's fabulous post about the uberfabulous Commodore Norrington, on whom I have a fabulous crush.

ETA: Links, because these things make me happy.

Do you ever ask yourself, "What Would Uncle Jesse do?"

There can be no real explanation for this. Just know that it's fabulous.

Mariah Carey explains it all. It being the way she talks. The explanations are very, very detailed.

Oh crap...I just totally dated myself because I figured it was Uncle Jesse from the Dukes of Hazzard!!!!

Damn, I hate getting old.

I'm sorry you're sick...Nyquil can be your friend if you use it responsibly. And yes, all college libraries are cold. Half the time I come to work in the morning and I've left my space heater on ALL night...hope I don't burn the building down.

*laughs, and hopes the library remains intact*

And..you know, maybe the fact that I'm a baby is showing, but I gotta say I didn't think of The Dukes of Hazzard once..it's all about Full House. Even when you hate Full House, which I do.

...even if I did have a huge crush on Uncle Jesse back in the day, sekritly.

My college health center was awful as well. I had mono and not once did anyone suggest that I go home instead of wallowing in my dorm room for weeks. They give you antibiotics for anything and you never see that same doctor twice. Getting a gyno appointment for pills had a two month waiting list. Hang in there, just rest in-between the studying and such and think about how nice it will be when you get vacation.

...vacation....mmm....Gahd, that sounds like a gorgeous thing.

Also, your health center sounds really dangerous. *frowns fiercely in their general direction* Mono's one of those things that screams LET ME GO HOME RIGHT NOW! NOW! NOW!

*hugs* Thanks!

Sorry about the bad diagnosis (and yes, on-campus health care is so awful that it's beyond words), but at least you were over-diagnosed, instead of under-diagnosed. Last year, I went in with a severely sore throat and they told me it was a virus, and that there was nothing they could do. Turned out to be tonsillitis, and I sat with it so long I ended up having to be hospitalized. Fun.

So my advice is get a real doctor nearby. Because I think it's actually dangerous to trust campus health care.

Gahd, dangerous, yes. I'm hearing more and more horror stories...I think I'll definitely look into a doctor all my own....

And, jesus, tonsilitis? Hospitalization? It might be a bit late, but, *hugs*!

I think that everyone should make sure that they have a private doctor once they head off to college. Even if they have to get their own insurance, because the people in those health rooms are usually completely incompetent (or maybe just over-worked, and under equipped, if I'm feeling sympathetic).

And, well, the hospitalization was partially my fault. I kept going to class, even though I didn't feel well, and decided that since it hurt to eat and drink, I shouldn't actually do it. I would have been a lot better off if I hadn't gotten massively dehydrated. *g* Sometimes I'm not all that bright.
