Rough Day-ugh

Hey,
my day was horrible. Last night I was in so much eye pain that I fell asleep on the couch. I then forgot to get this thing signed for english and my teacher was really obnoxious about it. Then to make matters worse-this is the teacher who I already hate because she doesn't get my work to me and stuff. She is just naturally mean and treats me like I don't belong in her class. I started to cry but tried to hide it. Then I just asked to go to the bathroom and then I just let it out in the hallway. I collected myself after a minute and went back into class but I am still a bit upset. I HATE WHEN PEOPLE MAKE ME LOOK DIFFERENT BECAUSE I AM LEGALLY BLIND. The worse part was she drew so much attention to me. After she started to write on the board in a light color so I couldn't see. ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need someone to talk to

awe awe Rebecka don't worry so much you right to hate her because teachers shouldn't treat you that way and if you fail her class because she doesn't get your work to you in time it her fault because the teacher is suppose to help you and instead she is a bad teacher for doing that
i think you should talk to your parents or canceler or something like that sorry about the eye pain i'm going threw alergess or something like that because my eyes won't stop watering, and my nose keeps running
good luck


Re:Rough Day-ugh



hey thanks,
I already spoke to my parents, contact teacher, vision teacher, but they couldn't do anything tomorrow. I don't know how they are going to fix it though. I wish people werent so arrogant/ignorant
and i think the highlight of my day was when my friend came up while I was doing braille proficiency reading hw from my vision teacher and he said-what is that. I used to be able to keep the secret of my visual impairment but now because of the cane and braille I really cant. Now people stare at me when I walk through the hallways. I shouldn't care but I do sometimes especially since I have only been using it since september in school. Just one of those days.


Re:Rough Day-ugh



I know exactly what your going through. I cry at school almost everyday! I just want to leave forever!


Re:Rough Day-ugh



It is not that I don't want to deal with adversity, it is just that it is hard to face it.
Like I said-it is hard to deal with such arrogant people.
Deep breath-still a bit upset but trying to refocus for mid-term studying. I need to do something about this adversity thing. Hmmm.........


Re:Rough Day-ugh



hey don't worry about those people i have them at my school too and really and truly i don't think that there really is a way to get away from people like that
don't worry if people stare at you ask them to leave you alone or try to tell your parents or teachers about it
you will always have friends on here knot saying that you don't have friends just saying that i know what your going threw
