I Need A Doctor’s Note Because Of My Broken Heart January 6, 2015

I’m not a bad person at all, but I recall the one time that I ever had to turn in a fake doctors note, and I can still remember it to this day. I still feel bad about turning in the note, but I really needed the days off of work, and I ended up having to take one day off of school as well. This happened several years ago, and I was a student still in college, and I was also working part-time. The job that I was working at got very busy during the summer.

The patrons would pour into my waitressing job every day in the summer, and many waitresses were tired of having to work so many hours, so many of them would call out from work. Because of the excessive callouts, the owner of the café decided that from now on, we had to come in with a doctor’s note, if we were going to call out from work, or we could be fired. I was very intimidated by this, because that was the summer that I was spending a lot of time with my boyfriend, and sometimes he would want us to spend our free weekends together.

I know eventually a weekend would be coming that my boyfriend would want to spend with me, so I didn’t know how I would get to go and see Dr. Nick, who’s a doctor I’ve been seeing since I was a child, especially if I wasn’t really sick. I didn’t think about it too much, but just took note of what the owner was saying, were now the new rules about calling out from work. The policy was “no excuses, unless you had a doctor’s note,” and if you didn’t, then find somewhere else to work. Wow, kind of a harsh punishment!

I managed to avoid a couple weekends without calling out from work, until one weekend came when my boyfriend wanted us to spend time together. I tried to tell him that it was not a good time, and he said that I was just making an excuse, even though I let him know that I could lose my job if I took the weekend off. I also let him know that I would have to go to the doctor, fill out forms, pay a fee, and go through with an entire doctor’s visit, just to get a note, if I decided to take the weekend off.

Of course, he was very upset that I was turning him down, and even after giving him an example of someone who was fired for not having a doctor’s note, he still became upset, and turned his back, and walked away from me. I tried not to take it too personally, but honestly, I felt a bit heartbroken, but I really needed my job. I spent the rest of the day working, then I decided that I would just go ahead and get a doctor’s note, so I could spend the weekend with him.

I didn’t want him to know that I had changed my mind, so I let it be a surprise. I was all set to go and see a doctor the next morning when I came across something online that got my interest. There was a sample of a doctors note, and the sample looked so legitimate, that I could print off the doctors note template, and use it as my own doctor’s note. In fact, there were several templates of doctor’s notes on the website, and I went through them looking for one that looked like it was something I could pass off as my own problem.

After I finished filling out the information, I printed off the forms, and I couldn’t wait to see my boyfriend the next day, so I decided to surprise him in the middle of the night. It was only after 8 PM, and I knew he would still be up studying for the next day. I had a key to his apartment, so instead of calling first, I drove over to his apartment with the intention of spending the night with him, and going away for the weekend together, right after morning classes.

Instead of me surprising him, he surprised me by having another woman in his bed when I walked into his bedroom. Although he was startled to see me, he did very little to cover up the fact that he was cheating on me. He actually asked me to close his door, and lock the front door behind me on my way out. I drove home and cried all the way. I did end up using that doctor’s note, but it wasn’t because I was sick, but because I was heartbroken. Needless to say, that weekend sucked, but eventually I did get over that cheating jerk!

STD Testing On The East Coast November 8, 2014

If you are  living on the east coast you know that during the winter time there often is nothing to do.  To combat the boredom a lot of people engage in sexual activities more than other people might.


Also, for some reason, a lot of these people forget to or neglect to use protection like condoms.  Because of this, scientists with the center for disease control have noticed a correlation in there being more infections of sexually transmitted diseases in the east coast when the weather drops below 45 degrees.  We wanted to know more about this study, so we spent some time digging into the data ourselves. You might be asking yourself what is the most prevalent disease that we have found being transmitted during the winter time and the answer to that is herpes.

The reason that herpes is so easy to transmit is that it often won’t show up in STD tests until months or even a year after an individual has been infected.  Unfortunately for many Americans, that means that they become infected with the disease without their partner even knowing that they had it in the first place. Some things that you might have heard about the disease include that people always know that they have been infected.  This is completely untrue, because as mentioned above, it is very possible and usually likely that someone can have the disease without actually knowing it, even if they ahve been getting tested for as long as they have been sexually active.  Anotrher thing you might have heard is that if you have herpes you shouldn’t give birth to a child as they will be infected with the disease.  This is another myth that simply isn’t true either, the reason that some people believe this is that it is possible for them to give the disease to their children but if doctors know then they can take the necessary precautions to avoid transmitting from mother to daughter or son.  You should also know that despite popular belief, the basis STD testing panel does not test for HIV or Herpes… you have to specifically ask your doctor or clinic to perform the tests for you.
