FIRST DAY OF FERRIS TODAY:
It went fine (as in, I didn't get lost (too badly) and I wasn't late for any of my classes) - BUT
I woke up this morning with my left eye puffy. Which had me worried because about a year ago I had to have emergency surgery on it because there was like this huge ... thing under my eye and I was afraid it was starting up again. But when I got to Ferris, it had gone away. THEN - at about noon I felt a pain behind my eyes and knew that I was going to get a migraine, but it was shortly before my microbiology lab so I couldn't take any meds, and right after lab I had chemistry lecture...so I was in major pain through those classes. Then when I got out for the day I had to get halfway home before there was an exit with a fast food restaurant (that's right, Big Rapids only has sit-down restaurants, believe it or not). So I slurped down a class of water and took some excedrine migraine - so I'm feeling better now. But as soon as I got home, I felt my eye was puffy again, looked in the mirror and it was FULL BLOWN SWOLLEN!
So I dug out my old antibiotic eye drops from the last time this happened and I'm hoping that the swelling will come down a bit before tomorrow - I also have steroid eye drops if I need the swelling to go down in a pinch - but I see a Doctor visit in my near future
It just really sucks because this is making me remember back when I was at Grand Valley and I got mono, 3 strep infections and an eye infection in ONE 15 WEEK SEMESTER. It's like my body is allergic to 4 year Universities! I NEVER got this sick when I was at NMC (community college)
And I just heard from my friend Marty who is taking John's political theory class and...just all this talk about John is making me miss him hardcore right now
I feel like writing him an e-mail but I don't want to seem like a "Mel".
OTHER THAN ALL THAT THOUGH - I'm enjoying it. All of my Professors are ACE - it looks like my chem professor is going to be a blast. My microbiology lecture prof seems kinda out there - but really wants students to succeed which is nice - and my microbiology lab prof is a SUPER sweet girl - VERY VERY nice which is great to have in a lab prof
