Stuck In Calgary

Recommended Posts

Yikes! That sounds cold! :o

I've come across a lot of professors who just aren't understanding about students needing time off, no matter how valid the reason. It's just a class though. You're right that your health is more important. Hope you feel better soon!

Yeah exactly, its not like I'm just skipping and making 30 hour bus trips for the fun of it! :angry: Whichever doc I see next, Calgary or S'toon, i'll be sure to tell them about this situation now and see what they suggest. Maybe they've had other college/uni. students deal with the same things...I'm sure both specialists have had a lot of patients before!

I suggest we all go and see the head of your school and flog the tar out of him. Tell him that his causing you stress is not good for your disease and will only make y6ou miss more.

Lisa, make sure that you have notes from the doctor's office detailing everything you are going through, from symptoms to appointments to procedures to dietary restrictions, you name it, and make sure that the head guy has a copy (you keep a copy, too). That way, they can't legally (I think) give you any trouble.

Thats actually a good idea...instead of just giving the school a copy of my appointment, maybe i'll get both docs to give a note/letter to the school too, so they know i'm not making it up about how serious/urgent it is

good idea ;). None of them even understand why I said I'm gonna have to miss school on the days I gotta eat gluten...STUPID.

Maybe you should call the doctors' offices and ask them to mail letters to you (so you know what they say, and so you can make some copies for yourself) to give to your school.
