attack of the epidemicI have mumps and it sucks and whats worse was i started getting the symptoms monday so went to the doctor on tuesday who said- no u don't have mumps ur just ill. so i went home and did as he said, rested etc, expecting to get better- and today i look like a huge hamster- and i go back to a different doctor and hes like yes this is sever mumps; so dumb ass doctor one was wrong and now i'm scared i could have given it to people. I really have little faith in the health service sometimes, they do get a lot of things wrong, or maybe its just me.
i admit this term hasn't been good for me i'vebeen pretty much ill since i arrived but every time has been real illness and the doctors i think think i'm being a hperchondriac or something. Anyways there are 3 cases so far in my building so we're all confined to our rooms for 10 days til its gone. some people are going home but i;d rather sit it out. I'm actually a bit worried about mising lectures etc, don't want to let people down, but then don't want to give everyone mumps as well! Anyways best be off, feeling dizzy so may go to bed- but sknny for not having eaten for the past 3 days!
