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 .

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
