As a kid, I got sick a LOT. I almost didn't graduate high school on time because I missed about a third of my senior year. Since I didn't like school too much, it was a sort of guilty pleasure to enjoy the missing school part, though not being sick. Now that I'm in med school, it's a completely different story. Being sick sucks. School marches on unabated and the work piles up relentlessly. Fortunately, I'm back on me feet and ready to start digging out of the hole.
