Illness Ryan Thompson 4 th Hour Miss Howard November 7, 1996 During times of illness there is certain things one cannot bring themselves to do. Everyone has had one of these times. That time for me is right now. As i have been diagnosed with bronchitis and tonsillitis it is very difficult to concentrate on the computer screen when the medicine you take makes you nauseous.
As I sit down to type up my homework my headache worsens. but yet I continue on at my meagerly pace to finish the assignment as it has to be turned in today no matter how sick I seem to be. Some may say this is unfair. I seethe rightness in it however. See if everyone just said they were sick did not want to complete an assignment it would get out of hand. People would just make up excuses not to come to school.
That is not right and the assignment is due on the day assigned. No ifs and’s or buts. Illness not only takes your concentration and does crazy things to it. It also takes away your will to do the tasks on hand.
you know your paper is due, and that you must get it to school somehow, but yet you do not want to doit and only want to curse the teacher that gave it to you. Of course people will say that I could have written a good three page essay in the time that it took me to scribble this down, but I believe this is untrue. As this paper took no concentration and just my thoughts coming down on paper. If a real essay would to come to me now that is what would be on the paper. But as you see it is not a true essay.
... feelings can last for a long time. There are many sufferers of this illness; at any one time, 5% of Canadians are depressed ... no one should think depression is, either. Like any other illness, depression has certain symptoms. Once these have been recognized, you ... their are some triggers: stressful events or a loss, physical illness, hormone levels, and use of certain medications, drugs, or alcohol ...
Honesty is always the best answer right? Why that is what I think. Actually Miss Howard this Paper was just something to get done with and get a grade so that I may re-write when I am feeling more myself and can think more efficiently. Here we come to the end of my glorious essay and we can see the affect of my illnesses. They take away my concentration and pull away from me my will to do work of any sort. And as you look over this I regret taking up your time to read this, but hope you at least get some entertainment out of reading it, as it will be on your desk soon as I shower up to take my prize into be graded.
