@ funguy - yeah it would have been against the ADA but my professor was a jerk so that is why I had to get the director involved. He is the first professor i have ever encountered that was like that but I'm sure, i'll run into a few more--but this time I will be prepared. My vice is caffeine and chocolate. When I feel really good, I'll have 1/2 of an alcoholic drink but I don't normally drink alcohol. However, when the good ol crohns fatigue comes on or I start feeling stress, I think coffee/chocolate will perk me up and all it does is inflame everything. I get B shots 1x month and drink emergenc for energy but i still seek comfort in that darn coffee and chocolate because it used to perk me up prediagnosis. old habits die hard.
@mmmnavy, you said that they let you take your finals early? how did you work that? If i could spread them out it would really help. =D
@hldwodrgs Most of my professors at my old college were very accommodating with me which is why I went into shock with my mean professor. He made me feel like because I was not as savvy (I have a learning disability in addition to the crohns so i would ask for clarification on items to keep me on track) and on top of that had tummy issues that i was inferior and therefore not worthy of being in that class or college. (I have another word for him but mean will suffice here) My major is sociology and I hope to get a masters of social work because I feel i can turn my disabilities into positives with people and help them to overcome things because I have. He made me doubt myself and I think that is where most of my stress came from last qtr. My other professor was strict but was cool with my illness.
@Sue... ok i will think about
graduation day. I am doing what you did and not taking a full load. I'm doing 2 classes and the disability office made it so it counts as full time so i still get financial aid. I just sometimes lose patience because i'm an older student (i'm 38) and I just want to get it done with cause i have places to go and things to do--and of course i need to start building up my retirement. Yet another lesson. I need to just pace myself.
thank you all for your advices and for your "hope".... ok, will try the advices you gave me this qtr. if you guys can do it, I can too. =D you have no idea how happy your responses made me.
Have a great week!
