We've all been sick before, with the flu or the cold, or maybe even strep throat. It's not too bad, you get out of school for a few days, take some medicine, and get back by the next week. But if you get one of these diseases, it's not likely you'll be going back to school any time soon. In fact, it's unlikely you'll even live past the first few weeks.
