Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I've just had my appendix out and I'm finding it hard to come around and do my [KWLINK ]homework[/KWLINK] again after two weeks off school. Help!
Chook


Dear Chook,

Sorry to hear about your appendix, but glad you're okay. First of all, don't be too hard on yourself. Recovering from an illness, especially one that required surgery, is a hard thing. After two weeks off of school, you're bound to feel overwhelmed and lost when you start hittin' the books again. Talk to your teachers and tell them you're having a little bit of trouble. That way, they won't think you're just slacking off - and they may even have some tips on how to catch up or get back in the study groove. Also, ask some of your classmates if they want to get together for a few study sessions where everyone helps each other out with homework and that big test that's coming up next week. Plus, your friends are always around to help you out with school stuff - after all, that's what friends are for! Remember, it's okay to be a little off your game after something like getting your appendix taken out, but you do have to jump back into school eventually. Don't let this illness set you back too far.


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .
