It's Monday... and I'm soooo ready for this week to be over! Exams... Exams...Exams! I'm going crazy. I don't want to study anymore. I want to be on vacation! I'm tired of learning, and writing papers... I need just a little bit of time to relax, and get my personal life in order! I have to make it through til Thursday... thats all I keep telling myself!

I went to the doctors today, for my regular yearly check up. All is good... I just have to wait on the results of the lab work. I got checked for everything... just to be on the safe side. I felt kind of bad because there was a girl who was in the lab waiting to have blood work taken again, and she was crying hysterically. I was trying to mind my own business, but she kept saying "I can't believe he did this to me... I can't believe he gave me this" I kept my head burried in the Allure magazine I was reading, but I have to admit.. I got a little emotional seeing her cry like that. I started to get a little uncomfortable waiting on the lab girl to come do her job, so I walked out of the waiting room and down the hall to the ladies room, and overheard the girls mother on the phone crying telling her husband their daughter tested positive for HIV, and they were going to be running more tests, and do some blood work to figure out medications to put her on. I don't even know the girl, and it made me sick to my stomach... she had to be around my age, who knows maybe even younger... she looked younger. I felt bad, I wanted to go back into the room and tell her things would work themselves out, and it'd be ok, but I didn't want to butt in to something that has nothing to do with me. Nothing I could've said would've made the girl feel any better anyhow, and plus I don't think she would've been happy had she known I overheard her mother freaking out in the hallway. It's sad. I know a couple people who live their life with the virus, and have children, and are doing the best that they can. Their life isn't completely over, they just need to be careful with things they do, and of course there's a limit to sexual partners, and etc... it's scary.... no matter what though. Things happen. so it's best to always be the safest possible.

Well, I have to get to studying. 3 exams tomorrow, so I'm going to be craming every bit of information into my head that I possibly Lets just hope it doesn't all run together. hope all is well out there!

For future reference, I think that people undergoing trauma 'in the moment', DO NOT want people to pat them on the back, saying ANYTHING.

Good thing you didn't say something to the girl, could have been a very, very bad scene.

Stick in, finish the school year strong, and be fresh and ready after your break!
