The first week of school was a short week. By the end of the second week, I was starting to get behind. But, that was okay. I was going to spend that whole weekend studying.
And then the miscarriage started happening. I don't know if you've ever had a miscarriage, but it is physically the most pain I have ever been in my life. When the only way to relieve pain is to take prescription pain medication, you can forget about even being about to study while the pain is gone because you feel like shit.
Needless to say, when I returned to a week with four tests scheduled, I was fucked.
I ended up working things out with my professors, but every afternoon I was physically exhausted. Between the headaches and the exhaustion, I really struggled just to go to school, muchless catch up.
Heading into today, I still had one test and five homework assignments due by midnight. There was no way I was going to be ready to take it or do the homework. I decided to talk with my professor to see if we could work out something, but I wasn't sure what, if anything, he would let me do since he had already given me a one week extension.
Luckily, we talked and he's letting my final count as a replacement test grade, and he's given me another extension on the homework.
Hopefully, by next Monday, I'll be caught up. It's going to really depend how I feel every day. I underestimated how taxing a miscarriage can be on your body.
