    Adverbial Clauses

    Can I string adverbial clauses without punctuation?



    Tom called his mother because she wasn't feeling well even though she had seen the doctor after she had talked to the nurse in order that she might get some advice since she didn't know what to do even though her son had told her to seek professional help so that she could be cured provided that they could determine the illness although it was most likely a cold even if she wasn't certain about its severity except she had been coughing a lot that she had a headache where she was always in pain while she went through the day until she had to rest on her bed whenever she could find the opportunity provided her daily work was complete if she started early.

    Depends. Do you want anyone to read it?
