    Hey, I'm sick and my health is declining. My doctor wants me to go for a bunch of tests but for each one, I would have to skip a class. What should I do?? Blow off the appointments or should I consider taking a leave of absence from school?

    You got to look after number one which is yourself, go to the doctors seriously.

    Tell your school you have an appointment/ appointments and go to them. You can always ask what you would be missing and go through it later if you are that worried or will be missing a lot. It's an acceptable reason to be missing class and your health is more important than your education. You could end up missing far more school if you don't work out what this is and keep getting worse and you can always look at what you missed another time. You can even re-take exams. You can't go back in time and fix health issues though.

    Hope all your tests go well and your health improves soon
