School work can be hectic and may require occasional breaks to avoid breaking down. A break from school can be good for your mental health. Many students fake illness to have a mental break and resort to seeking doctors’ notes to help support their claims that they were suffering from a medical condition. Apparently, illness is a perfect excuse that does not require many explanations that could possibly result in you contradicting yourself and getting caught in the process. If you have been too busy during the semester and have not taken any break, you may want to take this opportunity to have a day or two off for self-rejuvenation. Learn how a doctor’s note can revitalize you.
Why Use a Doctor’s Note?
There is no better excuse for missing school than illness. A doctor’s excuse can get you out of virtually any trouble with the school authorities. If you say you missed school because you felt feeling a little under the weather, you may not need to explain yourself much but the excuse works almost every time.
Imagine a situation where you miss school to attend to embarrassing personal or family issues. Your teacher will have to know about your family drama. However, by using sickness as an excuse, you avoid trouble and maintain your privacy. You won’t have to talk about your parents’ disagreements or disunity back at home.
They Are Verifiable
If you talk to a physician and he or she has agreed to get you a doctor’s note to explain your absence from school, you can be sure that your physician will defend you when the school makes a call to his or her office to verify the information.
Therefore, whether you are seriously sick but cannot afford to pay the medical bill or are avoiding the hospital because it is a simple cold, getting a doctor’s note is a perfect excuse for not showing up at school.
