Like many people this season, I have gotten sick. I wasn't quite sure what it was because I would be fine one day and then really sick the next day. Finally I decided to go to the health center at school. I figured they would give me some antibiotics and I would get better pretty fast. Well, when I got there there were only two other students in the whole center. I register and then they ask me my symptoms so I rattle the list off, burns to breath and cough, clogging in my ears, nasal congestion and burning from dryness as well as a low grade temp and a weird red rash in the back of my mouth and down my throat. After telling the nurse this she asks me to go and sit back in the waiting area. At this point I should say that when I checked in I filled out a form saying I wanted all medicines given to me explained. Well, after sitting in the waiting area for a few minutes the Dr. calls my name and I go back for what I thought would be another mild examination. In reality I only stayed in that room for roughly 45 seconds while he tells me my lungs are clear, my ears are fine and my throat is not swollen. I was in shock for a second and by the time I came out of it I was back in the lobby. It all of those things were fine then I must not be sick, but wait........yep there it is, I am still sick. Then the nurse comes out and hands me a bottle of super decongestants and walks off before I can say anything. I could understand being rushed out like this if it were really busy but there was more medical staff there than students.
I just don't understand how I have nothing in my lungs when stuff comes out when I cough or why I can't hear if my ears are clean not to mention that my throat hurts. This must be all my imagination. I guess I just enjoy being sick so much that I would inflict all these symptoms on myself just to I could feel like crap. Silly me, I should have know that the incredibly wonderful doctors at the health center would see right though that.
needless to say, I will not be going to the health center ever again if I am really sick with something. They are completely incompetent. I'm sure I could complain more but against the advise of my physician I am sick.
