I’m feeling very stressed as I write this entry this evening. Due to my emergent physical symptoms, I’ve recently fallen behind in some of my important responsibilities as an adjunct instructor.
Also, I can’t easily divulge to my direct supervisor the exact reasons why I’ve not been able to keep up with my obligations for the past couple of days. For a variety of reasons, I’ve chosen to not be completely open and straightforward about my multiple health challenges.
Again, this is where my healthy appearance definitely works to my advantage. I doubt that anyone would guess just how serious my multiple health problems truly are. Ironically enough, one of my students confessed that his personal health issues have been interfering with his ability to prepare adequately for the examination that I am giving my class tonight. He asked for the option of taking this exam at a later date; I decided to grant his request.
