So I haven't been on here for a while...ive been doing really good taking my meds and everything has been fine until today...my second to last day of finals. I've gone through like four packs of cigarettes my chest has never hurt so bad of course its on and off my whole left cheek will be numb on and off too. Of course like always I feel like I'm dying. I'm just asking for a little encouragement and maybe some advice on how you guys dealt with this during finals. Its so bad I can't study and I have a HUGE chem exam tomorrow!!!
 
Thanks all!!

Well sweetie pie if I smoked that many cigs, my chest would be hurting too:) I used to smoke and when I smoked to much, I got the same sensations. I agree with Lyn, trying studying in stages, that way you don't get burnt out. Good luck with your exams.

Hi LadyBug,

I wish you the very best on your exams. I hear you on the cigs....I have struggled for almost 30 years with that addiction, and have quit many times. I falter during times of great stress, which sounds like what you are doing. Try doing lots of breathing relaxation exercises, and when you take a break from studying, do something physical to get those good endorphins going in your body and to relieve some of that stress. Best wishes to you.

Hi Tara,

Wow, it has been a long time since I took finals but I have a tendency to over study and then I stay in the moment knowing I have done my best and the knowledge is there, just let it come out.

I never listen to what others are saying around me when it is time to test and I never panic and look in my books one more time. smhair I know that I will pass so I go into testing with confidence.

You will do well, just believe.

Hugs
Kitt

Great advice from everyone here Tara. I am sure that you will do great on your exam as most of us "over-achievers" do :) You take care of yourself and try to cut back on the smokes so you don't make yourself sick my friend.

The best of luck!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort. . . Your Bro Sam :)
