Today, I attended my first day of school 4 days after reconstructive surgery. But no worries: I'm sure my alien-like appearance and 2 hours of Darth Vader style breathing in an otherwise silent test room will make me lots of friends. FML
carobee tells us more :
Hi, OP here! I had an accident, and therefore could not choose the date of the surgery. My face was severely smashed up, my nose broken and my jaw wired shut. It was a summer class and I missed the first 3 days, so by the time I was well enough to go they were already testing. The class was a pre-req I needed for my next year of class, my senior year. I didn't want to graduate late from college, as I am a pre med student and want to take the mcat next summer. I was not seriously worried about making friends, it was just funny to get so many strange looks. Anyway thanks for all the sweet comments, I'm doing much better now and look back to normal!!

Well if you're gonna pretend like you're Darth Vader, and you're going to make fun of it, I'm sure everyone thinks you're cool man. FYL OP for this situation.

There were a few comments of people asking what OP was doing in 'summer school' in late Aug. Mods quickly took them down though. Ah, and they edited the FML to say "school" instead of "summer school."
