This strikes me as surprising. I have read some god awful stories of breakups and how much they hurt. I have personally never been on a date but after all these stories I have read on the internet about girls randomly dumping guys, leading on guys, etc, and how much breakups suck, I feel like I already have mild trust issues. And I haven't even been on a date...
No really, I have seen... well not literally "seen", but observed... on Loveshack, eNotalone, here, Talkaboutmarriage, Yahoo! Answers. Man... breakups I think have to definitely be in the top 10 worst things a human-being can experience.
I have heard of physiological symptoms as severe as up to and including throwing up and fainting and psychological symptoms as severe as up to and including suicide.
This is making me really worried about breakups and while I really do dream of falling in love, I am afraid because first loves usually end in breakup. And first breakups are usually the worst.

Now the other day I asked if you would take a day off work or school for a breakup, and everyone was calling me pathetic and weak for proposing such an idea. Huh?
People are literally crying all day and night and are getting 0 hours of sleep and throwing up, but you call them pathetic and weak for taking a day off? And I heard those symptoms can last for a week...
This is even more alarming... lol... what am I going to do when my first girlfriend breaks up with me and I have a test the next day and I am crying all night not being able to study. Forget me - how do/did YOU do it?
How do people in high school do it? I have never heard of someone taking a day off high school for it... and I can't imagine going to school crying in all of your classes...

I think it really depends on the breakup.
The only situations where I feel taking a day off wouldn't be appropriate would be if you were only dating for like 2 weeks and you didn't know her before then. Like that's not that long, suck it up.
But any other situation, sure take some time off.1

I lost multiple close family members a couple years ago just a few months apart. The emotional pain I felt from that was absolutely nothing compared to the pain I felt going through my first bad breakup. I was a mess for weeks. Finally, as time goes on, the pain starts to fade until you can carry on like normal.0
