More email from "Strait A"
This time "Strait-A Student" missed an exam:
It was not about whether I could or could not take the exam physically, it was about mentally, I didn't get to study at all. My mom slept in my room since Sun night till Thurs morning, she took days off work to stay with me and to drive me to school so I could give notes to my teachers who in contrast showed a lot more understanding to my situation, and those classes are much higher level than this one. You know, if anything really? what could it possibly change from taking an exam on Fri or Mon??????? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, IT'S SIMPLY YOUR INSENSITIVE PRINCIPLE. I'm a hard working student, always was, everyone that knows me will tell you that for me school comes FIRST. The straight A's don't fall from the sky, they were earned with my health, tears, sleepless nights, and deep dedication to school, and the last time I left my home on Sat or Sun was a weekend bfore school started, I spend those days from morning to night studying. I dont deserve such disrespect!!!I will be ready to take this exam on Monday, I will ask you one more time to please make an arrangement for Mon or whenever available. I will not take a zero for this nor that I will drop this coarse, I know that any doctor or any school authority will be on my side, all my reasons are valid, and exam timing i asked for is reasonable. Please!! I just want to take the exam, let's not make this a problem.
A make-up exam time was set. She didn't make it. So this:
I told you I would be ready to take it any time next week. This whole week, starting sunday I was sick, only yesterday (thursday) my temperature finally stabilized to normal. My parents didn't take me to emergency room as a joke, for 4 days my temperature was around 101F-103.2F - at that temp.: shivering, cold sweat, hallucinations, nausea, headache and where you just lay on a bed with closed eyes and any noise or touch makes you feel like your head will explode. At this high temp. people die from brain hemorrhage. My whole body was in pain, I coudn't move sunday at all, Mon. and Tues. my mom gave me a ton of pain killers just so I could get up, because I NEEDED to go to school, so she drove me. My doctor specifically told me to stay in bed, relax, and sleep as much as possible. Some classses like Mon and Tues I just had to be there to at least sign in, then teachers and profs said I could go, some even e-mailed me their lectures just so I didnt have to stay understanding the seriousness of the symptoms. My plan to study for exam 3 was Sat, Sun and throughout the week. Sat it took me all day to learn ch4, the rest was put off for later time, but I got sick, tried studying Sun but with my condition I couldnt even hold the book in front of me. I remember reading, but pain and discomfort of fever was so overwhelming that I didn't remember or understand what I read. Anyways, I don't know if it's difficult for you to picture my condition, I don't know what you want me to do to prove this to you, but this is the fact. I feel like you treat me like I am some slack off student, that doean't want to take the exam. I didn't earn straight A's and got all academic awards to be treated this way, all I asked for was the weekend to catch up on my studies for this exam.
Makes you feel like your head will explode.
