I am not in a good mood. My head feels like a balloon, I cannot stop shivering, and I can barely breathe. No matter how much I blow into a tissue, I cannot clear my nose enough to take in a good breath of air. To make matters worse, my mother has dragged me out of my warm bed to this awful place filled with miserable people.

Everywhere around me, I hear people sneezing and coughing. I can only imagine all of the germs floating around this place. Just thinking about it makes me want to throw up even more. How is this supposed to make me feel better?

I glance at the clock and see that we have already been waiting for forty minutes. Just as I am about to complain to my mom again, a lady in red scrubs calls my name. My mother gets up to follow her, and I gloomily trail behind.
