    Drink A LOT Of alcohol! haha.. I was drunk about 24 of the 48 hours I had to wait. And it did help me alotttttt.

    LOL!!! I drank cognac, wine and beer while I waited for my results. Took the NCLEX RN at 0800 and was drunk by noon!!! I passed Oct 9th!!!! Thank GOD cause I couldn't drink anymore.

    I'm taking my exam next Saturday and the wait is driving me nuts!! My test is scheduled for 8am saturday so can i get my results online by monday morning or do sat/sun not count in the 48 hrs? My plan once I take the test is to drink, I think mimosas with brunch is a good start, then wings and beer at my favorite bar!! Who knows from there!!

    My sister and I engaged in some serious retail therapy; an approach I heartily recommend .

    I took a 7 day cruise after PN Clex. By the time I got back I had my results. There is nothing like being surrounded by hot bodied shirtless men with accents to make you forget everything. (I was single then )

    Thousands of sit-ups to lose the muffin top I acquired in nursing school

    watch my son's baseball game (yelling "way to wheel, way to wheel!" and " Good eye-good eye" can be very therapeutic)

    talk to my kids

    talk to my husband

    vow not to tell my mom how I really feel again and scare her to death-(she's going to church to pray for me now)

    come up with a game plan if "the dreaded" happens-its not the end just an unexpected detour

    Buy myself some flowers that smell good-like peonies.
