    I have got the worst cold in my life so far and it happens bang in the middle of the most important exams of my life. Why???

    I haven't slept properly for days...been coughing up so much phloegm.

    This morning I had the most hideous consecutive asthma attacks I had to be taken to the hospital. I'm so weak and dizzy and in so much pain...my throat is killing me.

    How am I going to even cope in exams, let alone revise

    Aww sweetie! Try not to worry and get anxious about it, that'll only make things worse for you. These things happen, I got the worst cold ever before my German oral and was all nasal and stuff for that, so annoying! Just try and get through your exams, you can do it! Take plenty of nurofen or whichever medicine helps you and do your best!

    I really hope you feel better soon. It's so harsh, isn't it? I've managed to have not one but two bouts of acute tonsillitis during my exams so far, and been so feverish and in so much pain that revision went out of the window. Give it a go, you've got nothing to lose, but I'm thinking of you and hope you feel okay soon.

    Oh man, it's a horrible time to get ill. Hope you get better soon. You should get a doctor's letter and give it to school, so that the examiners will take into account that you are ill during your exams.

    Look, you have to inform the examinations board they may give you extra time or sympathetic marking, and hopefully you'll do well....Get well soon!
