I've been absent from school for the last two days because of bronchitis morphing into something else and getting me down. Even though I've spent the last two weeks fighting with Katt about taking medicine, I've been doped up on the stuff all day. I drove to class this afternoon in a disengaged fog. It was wretched. When I got there I realized I could no longer hear because of my stuffy head. I took my oral test and stumbled over a bunch of the words. Couldn't think straight so I went home early. I have my lessons for Thursday though.
I have a report due in English and History tomorrow. I haven't written it because, a) I want my dad's opinion on the subject, and b) been down and out for two days. I hope I can make it to school tomorrow. I haven't improved much all day. If I'm not better by tomorrow, I'm going to ask my mom to take me to the doctor. She'll probably say no, though.
My mom and dad both come from poor families with poor health care. Despite the fact that our military benefits includes free health care, my parents don't take me to the doctor all that often. In fact, I've never even met our new Primary Care doctor, despite that fact that Katt, who has terrible allergies, goes to see him on a regular basis.
I think it might be Hay Fever that interfered with the bronchitis and caused such a terrible sickness. I can't even think straight, let alone type. The screen goes in and out of focus.
Enough ranting. I will retire early to ensure a safe awakening.
