Just wanted to let everyone know that...............

  1. You all are great!!! Your support and motivation means a lot to me and I will return it in a heartbeat. I think that is what makes this board so wonderful. We support each other through the GOOD and the BAD. I think many people talk about suicide from time to time. I know MANY of my classmates have. However, I think it is one thing to talk about it once in every blue moon compared to being obessed in it, being constantly depressed, and then acting on those feelings.

    I know I would never do anything to hurt myself because I love my daughter way to much, she already has one missing parent in her life she does not need a second missing parent. Also I love my parents way to much to do something like that.

    I am making a promise to myself to do something every day that is relaxing. My parents said they will help me and watch my daughter while I do something for myself each and every day. That is a wonderful feeling and now I will do that.

    Yesterday and Today I am back to my usual self. I feel much better, I feel that I do know more than what I think I know.

    After the test monday everything suddenly came back to me. I knew that content. IT was the way the questions were and my test taking strategies. I know the test taking strategies but I just need to practice them. So between now and December 2nd when we take HESI I will practice using those strategies. Also my final is December 12th so I will be studying between now and then but I will remember to be good to myself. The problem is I am always so good and nice for others but when it comes to myself I have a nasty habit of neglecting "ME".

    Those of you who know me around finals for me it is the worst time of year because I'll look at my calender and realize that EVERYTHING is suddenly due. We will have nothing due for weeks and then all of a sudden EVERYTHING needs to be done and turned in.

    Thanks to everyone. ((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))).

    P.S. Julie, Philippians 4:13 is one of my favorite bible verses too. I live by that one. Sometimes I just have to remind myself of that and pull out my big motivation book.

    I understand how you feel about finals, and think that many of us have these feelings. I know I am overwhelmed! You are right, everything is due! I only a few more days of clinicals left to go. But what if I should do something stupid now? After all semester I could screw up and be gone in one moment of clinicals and THAT stresses me out!

    WE CAN DO IT THOUGH!!!

    Can you please explain to me what HESI is? Thanks!

    Glad to hear things are better Tonya. You did the right thing by discussing your feelings and looking for support. If you ever feel like you are sinking again you will recognize the signs.

    Take Care ! Best wishes for Finals !
