So good to see you and know you are doing OK. Remember to try not to set your expectations to high as you may be setting yourself up for failure.
I do hope you make that appointment with you GI Doc and find out that all is ok with your stomach issues.
There is a thread called Trust and you can read about Nikki.
Glad you had a great weekend and stick with us.

I can relate to your situation. I'm also in school and I put a ton of pressure on myself. My 13yr old son actually said something to me about it. I was upset about getting a B+ on a homework assignment and he sat me down and told me I was a perfectionist and needed to stop...OUCH! From the mouth of babes...he is SO right. MY therapist has told me the same thing.
Make the appointment in Mat but in teh meantime, try and find a relaxation/meditation/relaxed breathing CD or DVD at the store. I've found these to be VERY helpful in just calming me down. I have one from the Lucinda Bassett anxiety program that I listen to 2-3 times a day. It helps me to sleep soundly at night. Take care and try not to beat up on yourself
