Stress Level is Through the ROOF!

  1. ARGGHHHH! I had a final today, two tomorrow, and one wednesday. I kept forgetting today was Monday! Today was anatomy lecture, tomorrow is nursing (med/surg) lecture and anatomy lab finals, and wed in nursing lab final. I could scream right now, and if I wasn't in the library I probably would, although there would be sobs in there too. I feel confident about my anatomy test from earlier, which means I probably did horrible. I've been at the library all day, and have HAD IT! I still have prelabs to do, but I don't think I can possibly study any more! Does anyone understand? Pray for me, and give me some money for coffee!!! -Andrea :zzzzz

    I feel like my eyes are popping out of my head. In the next two weeks, all these finals (total of 9), on top of clinicals and the SAME paperwork to go with them, and OF COURSE the pts. that i'm assigned are literally taking 25 drugs apiece and here i have to research all of those, plus get my notes done, plus two graph worksheets, and somewhere in there i need to get the brakes fixed on my car along with the oil leak, and i need to pick up my b/f after his surgery and bring him here, since his roommate got shipped out short notice and can't take care of him and the b/f's dad is 12 hours away and i'm only 3, and i need to find cheap cell phone service, plus work on this rehab project that's due in a week, and also work 53 hours....

    (Had to quit, i got a hand cramp. And a headache.)

    Wow...when you put it like that, my life doesn't seem nearly as hellish as I think it is. I could go on, but I too would get the hand cramp. Going to go home and cry myself to sleep while I sleep on my book, hoping some diffusion will get some material into my head (learned it's not osmosis, no water involved...damn anatomy). -Andrea

    Thing is though, it's stressful, but it's almost the norm. I don't know what i'll do when i'm working a 40 hour week again.

    I agree!!!! I am no longer complaining about my one final!!! I hope that all goes well for all of you who obviously have a full plate in front of you!

    There is light at the end of the tunnel. I can attest to it. My finals were over almost a week ago and I'm now going to the gym, the beach and sleeping in in the morning. You WILL get to the other side of hell week and it will be worth waiting for.

    I don't understand how these ppl with kids do it.

    We just finished midterms, 5 more weeks to go before finals.
    Have to write a paper on a current stressor for Psych, guess what that one will be about!
    Hang in there, you can do it!
