Everyone's getting sick

Postby Gotallanswers » Wed Nov 06, 2013 12:15 am

Is it normal for everyone to get sick. There is nonstop coughing during my classes now and everyone is sick. I'm even feeling a little down. Is this normal 1L year around this time?

Makes it easy to spot the gunners--just look for the bottles of Purell.

Mary Alice got cancer just like everybody here
Seems everyone I know is gettin' cancer every year
And we can't afford no insurance, I been 10 years unemployed
So she didn't get no chemo so our lives was destroyed
And nothin' ever changes, the cemetery gets more full
And now over there in Huntsville, even NASA's shut down too

Another Joker in the White House, said a change was comin' round
But I'm still workin' at The Wal Mart and Mary Alice, in the ground
And all them politicians, they all lyin' sacks of shit
They say better days upon us but I'm sucking left hind tit
And the preacher on the TV says it ain't too late for me
But I bet he drives a Cadillac and I'm broke with some hungry mouths to feed

Yes, it's normal.

Also, the law school is a whole new population from all over the country carrying new strains of stuff you haven't caught yet. Just like the first few months of kindergarten.

Everyone at my school gets sick at the same time every winter. It starts with the kids in the on-campus dorm, and the pestilence spreads from that vile warren throughout the rest of the school in no time.

It's because law students are generally weaker, frail physically. Usually people like this have shit immune systems. Since you're picking from a sample of people that have shitty immune systems and weaker physically, it just appears that they get sick more than the general public.

OP, I dealt with the same thing last year. If you don't want to get median pwned, you must force yourself to get sick now, so you won't be sick during finals. Seriously, just go up and suck face with the first person you see coughing.

OP is an obvious and repetitive troll. This post may or may not be egregious, but just FYI before you engage/things spiral out of control.

Ahahah. What are you gonna do about it, right?

Wear one of those medical masks and refuse to answer in class for fear of falling ill.

Yes, it's normal. You combine heavy stress with a lack of sleep, exercise and poor nutrition and people get sick. I was very worried about this last year and managed to stay relatively healthy. Honestly, being sick this time of year will fuck you. If you're not sick, and you know the people next to you are sick I would change seats. You could smooth it over with him/her by being really nice when they are not sick. If you know what you need to do on the test at this point, I would personally not attend class till the flu dies over.

It seems like many older students use this portion of the forum as a way of picking on younger students as some kind of dorky initiation process. Time now is worth 10x what it was in September. Getting sick would blow. Don't get sick. This is why all that stuff about keeping balanced is key.

Like a couple of other people have said: you're going to get sick. Better now than in about 3-5 weeks, or whenever your exams are.

1. Get your doctor to preemptively prescribe antibiotics.
2. Take them every day and watch everyone else get sick around you while you remain mysteriously healthy.
3. ????
4. PROFIT!!!
