Went Into Class 1/2 hour late
I'm pretty sure I've already missed all of the "allowed" absences for this semester: first week I just couldn't go, then two other times I was finishing a project that was due and was not about to drag my sorry *** in a half hour late.
This week, I have been sick (chronic illness) and the professors know I have a chronic illness through a private letter from the disability office.
This week, it was not technically me being "sick" with my chronic illness that made me late, it was SA.
I was a half-hour late Monday, because I had horrible pain (actually my illness) and was late driving back to school from a weekend at home. I got to school a 1/2 hour after my class started and called my sister to say I'd arrived, but SHOULD I go into class this late??? She said yes.
I dragged myself to the building my class was in, went into the bathroom to stand in a stall and think, walked out of the bathroom, walked toward the classroom, but turned around and told myself about how it is to go in late and was walking out of the building when I stopped. I checked my phone (for a fake "Oh I forgot something") and thought to myself, yes it's an hour late, but what if this makes a difference in passing or failing this class??? And I went in, avoided looking at anyone but the professors, and survived. I even apologized to the professor and explained through the health-letter of why I was late.
Today, I was running late and was feeling okay... (upped my med, but not sure about it sometimes) But I pretty much floated into class and sat down...again, a half hour late. But I made it.
These are the only two times I've been unexcuseably late, but I'm hoping to get better.
But I went in!
