Virtual Classes? - November 9th 2011, 08:18 PM

I have recently found out that I have a thyroid condition that makes me constantly cold. Like so cold, in my classes my fingers go numb and I can't write. I haven't been in school for a LONG time because I can't stop shivering in all of my classes. I have tried my best to keep up with all of my school work, but my teachers aren't understanding about this at all. They all think that it is in my head. Well, my male teachers do. And all but 2 of my teachers are guys. I have 7 classes, not including lunch.

The doctor told me that it will take a while for my medication to regulate my thyroid and for me to stop being so cold and tired.

My mom wants to home school me or put me in virtual classes so I won't have to deal with teachers anymore. So that I can stay in my house bundled up in blankets and hats (which we can't wear to school) and be warm and comfortable enough to focus on my school work. I could go to choir still and I would be able to actually to my work well and understand it. I completely agree but there are some things that I'm worried about this this particular idea.

I am a VERY social person. I don't know how well I'll do without being able to have contact with people. I'll miss my best friend especially. On the upside, I'll be able to eat more of what I want, I'll be able to say comfortable, I won't have to deal with bullies or with just....annoying people that make me upset everyday and make me want to punch them in the face. I won't have to deal with the girls smoking pot in the locker room anymore (we have a male gym teacher so he can't come in. I have told our school principal but he hasn't done anything about it). I won't have to deal with hearing about the fights. We've have 6 fights in 9 weeks.

I have an uncertain future ahead of me. I'm worried about what's to come. Does anyone have any advice for me to handle all of this without going insane? XD

Nevermind My mother talked to my teachers and we have it all figured out.
