Anyone else feel like sometimes the teachers are worse than the kids with their ailments? I have a couple "frequent fliers" who are teachers and come see me at least 2-3 times per week about stuff. One of them always has really weird symptoms and I never know what to tell her, other than "I would probably make an appointment with your doctor"
. Monday it was "I have blood in my stools and when I cough, blood comes up, but otherwise I feel totally fine". She is 23 and otherwise appears completely fine. Mentioned she traveled to the jungle of Central America in July. She ended up going to the doctor Monday night after I told her I had no advice for her...
Sometimes I wish I could just tell those teachers what I tell my kids- "I think you'll live. Have a drink of water and go back to class".
