Does this Sound Silly? What Do You Think?!

Question: Does this Sound Silly.? What Do You Think.?
I am 17yrs old and was recently hospitalized for my eating disorder for about 5 weeks and have since returned home. Now that I'm home, i find myself in a dilema with school and i have to decide whether i should keep my honors classes and work to catch up or drop down to a regular level. I take pride in my schoolwork, so im having a really difficult time making this decision. My mom suggested i call one of my old teachers from a few years ago and ask her opinion. I feel really close to this teacher, and she is the one who first recognized my eating disorder behaviors when they were first starting. However, i haven't seen her much in the past year or so even though she lives right down the street.

So my question is, would it be silly to ask her opinion on what i should do about my classes.? For some reason, i kind of want to talk to her, but im scared. I don't want to bother her or waste her time, and i really don't know what to say to her. What's your opinion.?

I don't think that it's silly to ask someone whose judgement you respect for their opinion.

You do need to consider whether the stress of working to catch up will be too much, or if the rewards are worth it.

The only silly thing would be NOT to ask about her opinion.

The best of luck to you.Health Question & Answer
