Attn all sick UW students: Never go to Hall Health

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.
