anxiety level is soaring..please pray for me

  1. I cant believe this! I got up early (6 am) this morning because my final is today and I wanted to do extra review. I got hardly any sleep last night, my house is a mess, I have 2 inch roots, didnt start christmas shopping yet (its Dec16th!), and the final counts for 35% of my grade. Before I started studying I went to go buy myself a good breakfast to get my day started on the right track....until........drum roll damn muffler fell out on the way to get food!!!!!!!!! I really feel like Im almost going insane right now and i dont know how much more I can take!! My final is in exactly 2 hours and now Im stressed out about my car and its gonna mess me up on my exam!! Please pray for me everyone if you happen to see this before 10 am....Im so scared right know how much anxiety can affect your test grade!!

    Does anyone ever feel like they are at the end of their string? HOw do you guys handle anxiety and the every day stressors that us nursing students face? Ill let you know how everything works out....until leaving it up to you guys and GOd!

    Hi Nicole,
    First my prayers are with you! I can totally understand the anxiety. Take some deep breaths...don't worry about the car or anything else right now. I'm not sure what semester in nursing you are in, but regardless, just think that you finished this semester...I'm sure that you have had classmates that didn't even make it to the midterm, right? I'm sure that you will do well, and again, my prayers are behind you!

    Hey there!!!! Totally sounds like something that would happen to me on the way to a final (I just finished in May)...I have that type of luck...hehehe.. Anyhow....try and relax!!!!!!!!!

    This is your last you have tons of time to catch up with your other things!!! Right now, just try and focus on the final...and relax....

    After the final is taken and aced you can start your shopping and deal with the car (Fortunately....a car with no muffler is a noisy car...but a drivable car if need be.....)

    As far as ways to decrease stress..... exercising alwasy worked fro me... but just sitting their on the comp, or watching your favorite show, or something to just help you relax works....try and just block out the other things right now....and worry about them AFTER the final....

    Keep us posted...and I said a little prayer for ya!!!

    Take three deep breaths, put away your textbooks, don't worry at all about your car, and you're going to do just fine. You will be JUST FINE!

    In my prayers....

    I would just get to the school ASAP, and do my last minute studying there. Then you will have the car issue behind you. Then do a little deep breathing or guided imagery or something to relax a bit. Heck, just find some friends to talk to about life instead of the final. Getting rid of the stress will help your grade twice as much as that last minute cramming!
