On the subject of epi pens:
My best friend Ash is near-deathly allergic to beestings, waspstings, anything involving bees. In middle school, she brought an epi pen to school because they wouldn't do a thing about the wasp nests (you heard me, there were at least five outside the cafeteria and they were constantly getting into classrooms.); because prescriptions aren't allowed in school, she had to get a doctor's note and a note from her parents for her to have it with her through the schoolday.
Despite this, the nurse took it off of her, citing school policy and whatnot.
It's a lawsuit waiting to happen; if Ash had gotten stung, she could have died because the stupid nurse took the epi pen off of her. Ash had a doctor's note, for dog's sake, and it even said she had to have it with her!
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life. Fight fear for the selfish pain;
It was worth it every time. Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends.
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again,
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need. Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why!
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy? If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
