Well, after that terrible February, I am glad to report that I am feeling much better. I think being open with friends, family, mentors etc… helped me a lot. Plus knowing that what I was feeling wasn’t going to last and that I had got through it before and that I am not the only one in the world to suffer from depression/low mood. Ooooo and the fact that SUMMER IS COMING!!!!!
I am very proud of myself for continuing with my life – not staying at home, in bed, hiding away and instead continuing with my routine 🙂
Hmmm, what else??? Oh, I am really happy that despite my depression making a bit of an appearance, my anxiety seems to have been kept on the back burner. I am still getting nervous before exams, but not the extent that I don’t think I can do them, or go to class etc… HAPPY DAYS!!!
One bad thing, is that whilst I have managed to learn how to keep stress at bay, my bodily functions seem to be affected by it. I have broken out in spots, bad tummy the majority of the time, go to bed tired, wake up tired. I guess that is the life of a student though??? I can’t be the only one who goes through this?
What are people’s remedies to exam stress???
I have started drinking smoothies – to boost the brain and combat hair loss (because my hair seems to be thinning out – could be down to stress or some health issues I am suffering from at the moment, or a mixture of both). Think I am going to try and squeeze at least a 10 minute jog around the park in at some point – oh actually, just remembered I am doing military fitness classes soon so that will be good enough exercise. So exercise, smoothies – any other stress combat remedies that I can try?
How is everyone else coping?
