I'm in highschool. I go in late sometimes because I'm in so much pain from my stomach. I also have missed a few days, but I try to go even if I'm in extreme pain. When I ask to go to the bathroom usually they say yes the first time, but I'm not aloud to go more than once. I'm in such extreme pain some days I have to just put my head down. When I try to explain to people how much pain I'm in, no one believes me. People just think I'm making excuses for why im late or why I didn't come to school, or even why I am just not focused. I just can't stand going there. The class periods are 80 minutes long and for many of you I can imagine understand that sitting and not being able to move for that long is torture. I end up feeling guilty for missing any school even though Im feeling so horrible. Should I feel guilty for not being there?
