Finals are coming up for me next week and I've been exerting myself so much these past few days trying to re-learn the material learned in my classes. Along with this, I have the added pressure of trying to graduate on a timely basis, which means I'm going to have to take up to 18 units for one semester coming up. AND to top it all off, my mom has been anything but supportive for my situation, constantly reminding me that she needs me to hurry up and graduate so that I can get a job to help pay off the mortgages that we're almost foreclosing on.
Sometimes the stress can be so overwhelming while studying that I have to take a break off and just sit, meditate on what's going on in my body, and get back to work.
Tonight I decided to take a valium pill after not taking any for the past few days. I think it has really helped with my shot nerves. Might just drink me a beer or a glass of scotch in a little bit to accompany the valium, even though I know its not good for my gaba's.
Does anyone else have any other coping techniques for these tough and treacherous times?
