I'm in my last year of high school and for my second credit english course I decided to do a novel for our major individual project. well, in february I wasn't feeling so bad and I hadn't been diagnosed yet, and now I can barely get out of bed in the morning, nevermind write a 60-90 page novella. I feel horrible sick most of the time and it's even getting hard to type because I get really bad brain fog, headaches and my arms are realy weak. problem is, it's due NEXT WEEK!!! 6 days to be exact, and I still have to write minimum 32 pages, edit it all 2-3 times, write an interview, fill out a bubble sheet, do a bibliography and some research and make a cover page.
Does anyone have ANY suggestions as to what I can do to get some energy to finish it? I'm desperate, my mark is low right now, 63% because I can barely function and dropping it isn't an option, especially since there's only a month and a half left and I grad this yr.
I can only write for a half an hour at a time. and on top of this I have a huge math assignment due soon, a provincial project (worht 10% each) and about 5 math assignments to do in a very short period of time. I feel hopeless!
plz, any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

TALK TO YOUR INSTRUCTOR! THey will make accomodations for students with disabilities and CFS is one. they have to. Maybe she/he can extend the deadline and you can have someone help you edit it-do you have a writing center? or a tutor who can help witht he finalities? ASK! As to energy, I'm still trying to find that remedy, trust me! I'm a sophmore soon to be junior in college, and I wish Icould drink abottle of energy, if I could only find it. best advice I can give is to talk with your doc about how to treat you, and try to improve your sleep. Brynn probably has some tips up her sleeve pertaining to the cfs energy thing.

Oh, good advice, Amy!
I guess it's due tomorrow, though.
I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner, but there isn't really anything I could suggest. If there were any tricks or medications, people would be using them and replying to your message. I hope you could get an extension!
All best.
