I am so sick but I still have to go to class

Or I will be dropped. I can barely keep my head up right now but I have to go to class. I even have my SD driving me because I am not good enough to drive

I have a lab today and attendance is mandatory. The ONLY way to get out of it is with a documented emergency. I half thought about going to the ER so I could have a hospital note instead but that would be a waste of time and a lot  more expensive. 

Ugh. I dont know how I am going to make it through

Caffeine may help.

Good luck - I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

maybe when the teacher sees how sick you are, they will send you home.  No one benefits when a sick person comes to class or to work.   It is better to take a day or 2 of rest and come back strong.

A doctors note wont do anything. I would have to be in the ER during the time of class

Load up on dayquil, and if that isn't helping get there early and speak to the professor before class starts.

Take some medicine, drink some water and then go and sit and wait for it to be over. It won't be pleasant, and it's wrong that you can't miss class even when you are ill, but you can do it! Unless you like actually pass out or die, you can make it through sitting in a class for an hour or so. Good luck mamma! Hope you feel better soon!

I'm sick too. I won't fail if I'm not at work today, 300+ people just wouldn't get paid.
