Thanks for the kind messages and the worry, but srsly, if anyone asks, I totally faked fainting to get out of class and do what's important:

@littlepixiejen

Also please ignore my whining and just donate to the 'send Jenny to all the gaming conventions in 2018' fund. #thankyou

Later that day
Jenny
@littlepixiejen

Well I've been at the hospital for over an hour now. They called my parents and everything.

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

I really wish that someone had some sort of real idea whether or not I'm okay or not, you know?

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

I mean, can't I just roll a d20 for it?

Toby
@TobyIsntReal

I think a girl was just checked into our wing. Based on the shouting, I’d say she’s not happy to be here.

The next day
Craig
@Thornsandcraigs

Hm. A new patient checked into the neuromuscular center.

Craig
@Thornsandcraigs

She didn't know anything was wrong until she got here so, you know, I feel for her. I do.

Craig
@Thornsandcraigs

She was crazy yesterday, but she seems quiet today, so Imma just leave it and get back to what matters.

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

Guess I better start hunting for new D&D partners while I'm here.

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

Or if anybody here has a 3DS and Pokemon Sun and Moon... ...and doesn't mind me waltzing all over them...

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

Oh Litten, why did I ever let you evolve...?

Later that week
Toby
@TobyIsntReal

Okay, yeah, Jenny is literally the best gamer I’ve met in a really long time.

Toby
@TobyIsntReal

She says it's her first time on SFV buuuuut.... I don't know if it's her first time. You know what I mean?

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

We were just playing in the common room for a couple of hours, me and Craig and Toby and Gracie.

Jenny
@littlepixiejen

I almost felt close to normal, tonight. Playing games, making jokes, talking. I had a really good time.

Then
Toby
@TobyIsntReal

My arm is not getting better. Used to be, I could rest for an hour, and then it'd be kind of alright.

Toby
@TobyIsntReal

My parents are scared, too. They came to visit today, together with a "medical scientist".

Toby
@TobyIsntReal

It sounds like something Rick would say. "Don't worry I'm a *burp* I'm a medical scientist, Morty."

Toby
@TobyIsntReal

I don't know if I can handle it all right now. I don't want to think about it.
