I'm sicker than I've ever been in my life, and have been for two weeks now. It hurts to breathe because my throat is so raw and sore, and I wheeze really hard at night. An hour before midterm Monday I cough so hard I start puking... so I make an appt with Hall Health.
The doctor comes in, examines me, nods when I tell her my symptoms, and then tells me I have a viral respiratory infection probably made worse by ALLERGIES. I have seasonal allergies and it's dead of winter. She then tells me I should take CLARITIN and some OTC SUDAFED. I tell her I've been taking sudafed for two weeks now with no results. She waves a hand and says "You're just not taking a strong enough dose." I'm dying and falling behind in school and she tells me to take OTC drugs.
Meanwhile a friend of mine when she was this sick got cough syrup with codeine and an inhaler, which she said cleared it right up in a few days. Not to mention a doctor's note for her TAs.
DON'T GO TO HALL HEALTH AND IF YOU DO AVOID THIS REALLY OLD DOCTOR NAMED VANBELLE.
