  • I'm ******

    I am so ****** and hurt. I found that through a classmate that a professor thinks I am using an illness as an excuse. He told my friend that at least she wasn't saying that the class was making her too stressed out to eat, sleep, and come to class. He rambled on about me having food issues and how my life is too stressful to come to his class.
    It is hard enough being here. i am taking five classes, working ten hours a week, and planning a banquet. i am doing everything in my power to keep it together. there have been days where i should have been in bed and have gone to classes. i have had to leave classes to keep people from seeing me cry. i already feel bad enough about myself i don't need other people making me feel worse. i wish i had one person in my life who i could talk, who could understand how hard my life is and is going to be for as long as you i live.

    Hey Grinch,

    First of all, sending you HUGE hugs!!! <img src="graemlins/grouphug.gif" border="0" alt="[grouphug]" />


    I'm sorry you're in so much pain right heart goes out to you. I wrote you a response to your other post about a month ago, I hope you saw it. I really think you are incredible to be dealing with so much right now. Is there any way you can lighten your course load a bit though? I actually took 3 or 4 courses a semester, took 1 during the summer and did my degree in 5 years instead of 4. Maybe this might be an option for you.

    Take care and I'm thinking about you..

    Warm hugs,
    My story of healing and hope

      Hi Grinch,

      Just wanted you to know that you are heard and most definetly not alone. It's hard to explain to people and make them understand what IC is like. Hope you know you have full support and understanding here! [img]smile.gif[/img]

        Wow, you need a break!!!! It sounds like you are really pushing yourself....I hope you get some rest soon. You need to heal a bit and then you will feel less vulnerable. I know what you mean about people making you feel worse when they have no clue what IC is like. Just know that they are ignorant and you are one of the strongest people to be doing all that you are. I hope things get better for you <img src="graemlins/hi.gif" border="0" alt="[hi]" /> <img src="graemlins/kissing.gif" border="0" alt="[kissing]" /> <img src="graemlins/grouphug.gif" border="0" alt="[grouphug]" />

          Hi Grinch!!
          Ugghhhh!!!!!!!!! What a jerk! Forget him, don't let that instructor get to you. He's just ignorant to say the least, but it probably would feel great to give him a smack in the face right?
          I feel really alone sometimes myself, especially before i found ICN. I'm 21 and i got IC at 19.
          I feel like my boyfriend thinks i'm weak because of it. And he used to get annoyed when i got up to pee every 15 minutes during a flare. He'd be like "you have to pee again!" like it was something new! Ughhhh. (But he has some issues, he he hee). So i feel really alone.
          Anyway, i know all of us only know eachother by computer but you are not alone!!!!

            Grinch, I recommend that you and your friend go to the Dean's office and tell him/her what was said about you. I would file a report against him, he had no right saying that about you in the first place, let alone to another student!

              Im with Melanie...go to your dean. Lightening your courseload, getting rid of responsability......If you are anything like me, thats not possible. I was diagnosed right before nursing school and felt like hell the whole way through- night shifts, 7am-930pm days, hell but I couldnt give it up.

              However your professor's acts are unprofessional and unacceptable. Regardless of his/her personal feelings toward you, it should NEVER be discussed with another student. YOu should go to the dean and explain that if your professor had concerns he/she should have discussed them with you directly and that you are hurt, appaled, and cant imagine the professor will grade fairly. And you could have the dean put a letter of your condition on your file....have your uro explain your illness. You are doing FANTASTIC to be able to get all this done and manage your own health....dont listen to what anyone else has to say!! Congrats to you, and dont let anyone tell you otherwise......

                  To put it simple---

                  You are STRONGER than any of them know, and they are weak and winey and should shut their yappy mouths!
