Going to school with a chronic illness can be hard but in the end it's worth it. You might not want to tell anyone about your illness but if you tell the school and your teachers they can really help. If you need anything like more time to do work, to take medicine during the day or to be able to get to a toilet easily just ask. Schools will be happy to help and it will make life easier for you. There is no need to be embarrassed. Don’t feel bad if you have to take a day off- your health is important.
