There is this policy in all my classes this semester - if you miss more than three classes with an unexcused absence, you lose a letter grade. Only, excuses aren’t that easy to come by. “I have a chronic migraine condition. I couldn’t get out of bed that day. Sorry.” was not an excuse. One strike in three classes for that one.
Today, I have a paper due at midnight for one of those classes. I haven’t slept. I’m standing on the metaphoric edge of fifty razor blades and I could fall on any one. I’m loopy and over tired, stress, anxious, and twitchy. I’m making up words and my filters are nearing zero. I’m playing word association games and this post is taking far to much conscious thought and revising as I go. I’m dizzy. I’ve been exhausted and had a sore throat for a week now. I need to relax, to be told it’s alright to go home and sleep, so I can let some of these horrible thoughts drain out of my head. I hate being scared of my own mind, and I hate that I have to be because I can’t take the day off. Its week 5 of 13 and I’m down one strike.
Missing class is inexcusable.
