    Ok now that you recognize it are you able to push it aside? My nursing intervention is this, Next time you start to think negative thoughts, grab a milk chocolate candy bar and read a chapter in your book. Oh and it may take more than one of those candy bars. LOL

    As always check with your doctor first before starting this chocolate therapy. I use the beer therapy myself.

    LOL. I don't think I should use chocolate therapy. I have tried that and it's exactly why I have gained an unmentionable amount of weight in the past three years. Thanks though.

    Stick in there. I am going through one right now. I worked for the FD for years before going to school. One thing they teach you right away is YOUR ARE #1! There is nothing else before you. If you are not able to take care of yourself you cannot take care of anyone, or anything, else.

    You are in school for 1 reason don't forget it. Everything I owned dissapeared literally in 1 day. My wife took it all, but the house. She moved and the house was empty. Don't know if it was my devotion to school, but it has happened. I have a travel trailer and live on some land and I will finish school. She was important, but now I can re-focus on me. That is truly what is important. You will be fine.

    We didn't have children so that part I don't have anything other than they will be fine. I am a child of many divorces and I think it is harder on the parent than the child. My siblings agree. Take care and do what you need to that way you can take care of the rest. You ARE#1. Good luck. I can relate.

    I just read an article from Mass General Hosp, in their Mind, Mood and memory news letter that milk chocolate increases alertness, attention and boost mental performance. That study was done at Wheeling Jesuit Univ.

    So I guess on test days I skip the metformin and take a kit kat.
