Has anyone experienced this?

  1. I am just about done with summer session in school, and it's killing me! I didn't want to wait until Fall session to begin, so I started with Summer session. I expected it to be challenging, but what is really hard for me, is balancing school, work, and home. Has anyone gone through this, I'm just starting my prereq.'s, and have a long way to go. I have to work, because we're trying to pay off all of our bills so I can drop down to part time when I get into the nursing program. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!!

    This topic has been discussed at length in many other posts and you might just try reading back over other posts. For all of us, it is the crux of the problem.

    Things will get better when you don't have to work, that is for sure. In the interim, lower your housekeeping standards, enlist your family members that are able as helpers [even little kids can pick up their rooms], keep meals simple and take a day now and then to have fun. This is a great web site for support, so hang in there and keep going. I found it helpful to focus on the idea that "this isn't how it will be forever."
