"Remember, you only have to succeed the last time."
Being sick while in college can be a curse if you don’t know how to deal with it correctly. I spent the majority of my time last week sleeping and taking medicine. Most crave to have a stress free week, myself included, but it’s not enjoyable when you’re sick. I had symptoms of the flu and decided to skip my classes that Friday and go home for the weekend. I ended up staying at home longer than intended, a little over a week to be exact. Battling an illness can be tough enough, but what about living on campus with it?
I was lucky to have chosen a college ten minutes from my house; I was able to go home and have the comforts of my bedroom while being sick. What about students who get sick and have to stay on campus? I figure that, even though I’m close to home, the time will come where I’ll be sick and will have to stay on campus. After thinking about what I would do, and eventually drawing a blank, I decided to look up some information on dealing with being sick on campus.
