Cystic Fibrosis and School

So school and cf… it’s a complicated relationship. It’s not just cf I bet it’s something like this with a lot of other chronic illnesses. So since I moved to where I live now I’ve had lots of abscesses. I’m talking about 30+ days of school missed.

In 4th and 5th grade I was absent due to lots of stomach aches because I wasn’t on the right dose of enzymes (I take enzymes for pancreatic insufficiency) which caused me to have bad stomach aches and such. In middle school my lung “issues” starting becoming present and my pancreas problems are fine for right now. In middle school I’ve had to get over 5 procedures/ surgeries and have had 3 hospital admissions and lots of doctors appointments. This was all in one year too… so fun!

Anyways this is related to school because it has been greatly impacted when all this has been going on. This year of school I have been on homebound basically for the whole year and am currently only going to 2-3 hours because it’s all I can handle. Since I’m only going to those classe and am on homebound I’m not counted in the class or whatever, I’m not really sure how it works. But you wana know how many days I’ve not been there according to my school account…

108.5 days!

I can’t even believe it right now.

Anyways I’m currently typing this at 1:13am… yes I said am, because I cannot sleep since my body hates me, like I feel so crappy that I can’t sleep, I’m having problems breathing, my mind is racing, there are many reasons. I don’t know what else to say so I guess that’s all for this post unless I come up with another thing about school…

It is now 1:15 and I have come up with another thing, stress.

Do I really need to say any more. There is so much stress from all the missing work and stuff from being absent, that’s why my family decided to do homebound teaching. If you don’t know what homebound is it’s when a teacher comes to your house and gives you your missing work and is there to help you. It is very helpful and I’m glad I decided to do it.

Anyways, bye for now!😊
