Today I felt sick in Chemistry so I left school early. Before I left, I had to check in with the school nurse.

I was in between going home or staying at school, so I asked the nurse for her opinion.

I couldn’t believe how ignorant the nurse was. She told me, “It’s not a matter of whether or not you should stay at school, it’s a matter of whether or not you can make it through the school day.”

No, it’s a matter of whether I should stay at school, or not.

She knows about my heart transplant: I saw her pull my health record up on the school website. She should know that I’m more prone to infections, and that I need to be cautious while sick.
