Dear Dish-It, I'm Finding it Hard to Do My Homework


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!

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 .

    Im sorry that you has such friends that seems to enjoy entertaining themselves by being mean to you.  They is just people that you hangs out with cos you says you hasnt anyone else to hang out with.... not friends.  I doesnt think you should think of them as friends either and then its gonna be easier to move on. Is there any way you can hang out with other people by eg [what other posters said] taking up the new activities? And you has friends on KW :) :D

    If they call you fat and stupid, they are not your friends. Your so called 'friends' are just using you. You need to find your truest friends. Clearly, they are not your truest friends.

    Society will not be soft to you always, just because YOU are soft. You must have a strong background. Also they are not your friends. You know what they are doing to you?They are packing a gift box looking all attractive (friendship) and filled with hurt ...like Pandora's box.  Just move on. Be alone n discover more of the world. Or just make new friends.I was in a state like you some months back. Now I moved on n I have 3 best friends. That time I thought too that they r my only friends. You will not find the world until you set out for the world.

    They are not your friends, really. You should leave them and move on. This might sound difficult, but being alone is better than being with an untrue friend. You'll make better friends soon, anyway. Plus, WE are here for you! :D
