I'm currently 16 years old and in the tenth grade. I have gotten sick and I missed out on a lot this year (first semester due to being hospitalized) and I am now home-schooled. Problem is that I am doing four subjects, three of them are Cs and one of them is an F. They gave me a lot more homework than I ever did while I was in school and I have not slept well in months, trying to do all of them, meeting deadlines and trying to get the grades but it feels like it isn't working out. According to my doctor, I shouldn't be stressing myself too much or else I would not recover well enough but it seems it is the only way to go to get As and Bs. I tried to cut down on my sleep and work harder but it only gave me more mental breakdowns and fainting spells. My parents said that everyone will understand (they talked to the school I should be going to and the guidance councilor said that they all understand, which I think is bullshit because I bet they don't care..) because I am sick but I don't like to use that as an excuse. I want to become a surgeon one day. Am I fucked for life?
I got Cs in Geometry, Chemistry and US History but an F in English. Let's just say that Shakespeare is not easy...

One bad semester will not hurt you, and they do understand. I knew a girl that I went to high school with that ended up in a coma for a year due to an auto accident and she graduated with us and went on to be a Naval Officer. You'll make it and you do need to get some rest other wise you will be screwed.1
