Today. I had my first final exam. That would be fine if I hadn’t gotten sick 4 days ago. No one can go get my antibiotics, I feel like I’m dying and I can’t miss these exams under any circumstance. FML

Why can't anyone help you when you're sick? And if you can make it to your exams why can't you make it to the store to get the medicine?

Ok so you are in college. A grown adult who obviously took themselves to the doctor. Take your ass to the drugstore and get your meds. Your parents are not always going to be there to help you.

If you are telling your story orally, it fairly easy to detect sarkasm in the intonation of your voice. When you put your story in writing, the readers can't hear you and you seem to be dead serious. You have to write it differently to make the sarkasm more obvious. Internet is full of idiots who really are serious writing such momments like yours, some of them even back up later by implying it was dry humor. We have no means to verify whether you are one of them or not.

Maybe OP really can’t make it to the exams, but doesn’t have a choice. I’ve had professors who were like this. Unless you had a doctor’s note, they wouldn’t excuse you. It really sucked cuz a doctor isn’t gonna give you a note for food poisoning, and if you can get out to the doctor by yourself (I lived alone), then why not just go to class.

So, if you need antibiotics, you've clearly been to the doctor. Last time I got given antibiotics I had acute tonsillitis with a near 40 degree fever and trust me I also felt like dying. The doctor told me not to go to work and while I wasn't given a fit note, because antibiotics usually kick in within a week (and they don't want to give you one for less than that in the UK), I can't imagine being declined one if you have an important exam in a few days. I can relate to not having anyone to help you and I after waiting 1.5 hours (crying of pain!) in the GP waiting room, I then dragged my still crying a$$ to the drugstore and then to grocery store to stock up (on ice cream) before passing out for like two days at home, so I can't understand why you didn't ask for a note and go get the antibiotics straight after? Also, you've now either missed your exam or have dragged yourself there, so again - if you can drag yourself to school, drag yourself to get a fit note and some medication instead. Leaning towards a YDI here little..

OP here. Going to clear up a few things. The school nurse (who is the first floor of the boys form) was the one who prescribed the antibiotics for me. No one who could drive that I asked to pick them up for me could. I told my professors I was ill but I still wasn’t allowed to miss the exams for that reason.
I lack a vehicle to get from A to B so my options were limited to say the least especially since I got an ear infection a day after I posted. I have the meds now, better late then never I guess.
