I have to admit, I'm going to be one that will be upset at a diminishing GPA. I've worked my butt off for a 3.90 in my pre-req's, and anything less will feel like failure -- to ME. I know in the eyes of others it may not be that way, but I am doing this not only to become a nurse, but to prove to myself that I CAN achieve high grades, something I didn't do in HS, and paid dearly for with multiple rejections to colleges and nursing programs
I have no doubt that my already frequent migraines are going to increase in number/duration/intensity, but it is almost like a mission to me now. I know I WILL have to change my way of thinking. Heck, I got a B+ on an English paper this term, and spent the weekend in tears and angry about it (BTW, I'm not a primadonna about stuff like that. My prof had given me a 98, then taken it away and given me an 88 because she found 2 errors in my Reference page AFTER she'd graded it and posted the grades. Not fair, IMO.)
So, yes, I'll be upset, maybe for a semester, maybe two, but I will have to get over it.
