Folks, I was dxed with a serious chronic illness when I was 20 years old. Dealing with that illness ruined my 20s, and only now have I really gotten started on a career (at 36).
Like I said, the illness is chronic and serious. I was OK for a long time, then last year, I had to take academic leave (both because of the illness and pneumonia as well.) It is one year later, and my doctor wants me to take another leave. I'm doing that for several reasons. I know I can finish school, but it begs a question:
At what point are you too sick to teach fulltime? I really want to teach, and will do whatever is necessary, I just don't know if mother nature agrees with my career desires.
