Just got the email! lol Havent been on the computer much, school is invading my whole life!
Okay, first, welcome to the board. I'll tell you like many others, high school isnt easy, and FM doesnt make it any better! Im sure you know that though!
I've had pain problems since 7th grade also. Its hard for me to relate to people who cant stay in school because of there FM, I dont miss school unless Im really really sick..I hate the makeup work and such. BUT I understand what its like to feel like you cant make it through the day...
I dont have a really bad school day. Only 5 classes, only 2 of those are important. If you have a counselor that works with your schedule, I'd suggest talking about
it with he/she...maybe change your classes around or something. I know alot of people are on homebound. If you just cant do the school thing, dont worry about
it. I know quite a few homebound students that have FM. They have someone bring them there work and such. Im sure it helps because you dont have to go to school, walk to classes, sit in desks, constantly do work and such. You probably need some breaks...
Maybe you could have a meeting with a parent and your counselor(or whoever does your classes) and talk about
what you can and cant do. Maybe work it out so you could go half a day and do the important classes and do homebound for the rest. Or something.
You have the right to change things so that you are comfortable and able to get an education. So, do what you need to because thats very important.
If you need someone to talk to, Im here, you can email me, just click on my name and my address is there. Im kind of rushed right now, so some things may make no sense at all! Im sorry! But, like I said, I'll do the best I can to help you out and Im here if you want to talk or have questions, anything, dont be afraid to ask or whatever! lol So, have a good weekend!
