Hi, I'm Hannah. I'm 17 years old and I need some help on convincing my parents that high school isn't for me. I realize that this is probably the wrong place to post this, but I don't know where the right place would be. I am a CF patient. Tomorrow is my first day back to school after I've been out for almost a whole month on IV antibiotics. Long story short, I hate school. It just isn't for me. I'm a junior in high school. I went to elementary school, middle school, and obviously now I'm in high school. Ever since I've started school I have probably missed 2-3 years of school all together because I get sick so much. Right now I'm in a rough patch. I don't take care of myself properly. That's one of the reasons I want to drop out and get my GED. I don't want to waste whatever time I have left in school. I have no idea when I'm going to get myself together and take care of my health. I just don't seem to have the time to go to school 9 hours a day, do treatments before and after school, do homework and have a social life. I can't find time for it all. I suck at balancing these things. So please, if you have any suggestions as to what I can say to my parents so that they will let me do this, speak up. I really want to do this and start having some fun in life.
