I am so tired!!

  1. My gosh I am only in the 3rd week of school, and I am exausted. I work full time and this is my first semester to go to school full time. Wow, it is so hard. Must be done though, if I want to pay my bills. I only hope I make it through. Any suggestions on staying awake or just keeping myself coherent. I would really appreciate any ideas. Well gotta go I have my first A and P test today!!!

    Did someone say tired? I know that I've been sleep deprived for at least the last two years...but my solution "diet" is...........coffee (two cups in the morning) and the rest of the day it's MOUNTAIN DEW (the mainstay of healthworkers across america!!! LOL!)

    I just flat out take caffeine-ephedrine stacks and ocassionaly supplement those with another dose of ephedrine when I have a paticular short-term goal.

    I drink coffee from time to time,but only for the flavor.

    I knew a guy that was diagnosed with Adult Attention Deficit that could take his perscription and memorize the content of 3 chapters of material in one day!

    I think that borders on recreational drug use though:roll

    Well,time to wake up and turn up the volume on the ol' sypathetic nevous system.
