    Hello everybody,

    I'm currently taking antihistamines and I also have some kind of ear infection and an upset stomach. All of this makes me tired, yet I have to study for my exams that are in one month.

    I do not have procrastination/motivation issues but my biggest enemy is lack of sleep/tiredness. If I'm in too much pain or if I haven't slept well the night before because I stayed up to study I will crash on my bed the minute I come back from uni.
    It happened to me this afternoon. In a way it's not my fault since my stomach was hurting really badly but I still wish I could have studied.

    I lost some precious hours. I studied afterwards but I feel guilty for not having read the textbook/done exercises more.

    Because of my stomach I can't eat acid things or drink coffee, but I'm looking for a way to stay energized.

    Your exams are important, most definitely, but don't push yourself too hard, you might end up making yourself worse. Make sure you get enough sleep, else anything you do read you're not going to take it. Take a day or two out to take care of yourself, maybe try going for a walk when you get in from uni to refresh yourself or a shower (this has the opposite effect on me.) Once you feel a little more energized, sit/lay with a hot water bottle and your work and, even if you're just skimming through, it's better than nothing. Make sure you eat as well as you can, as diet can cause fatigue.

    tl;dr - put yourself first and try to get better then do little slots of revision when you feel up to it

    what about some none-concentated fruit juice? Full of sugar, maybe it'll help?

    Thank you for your answers. I had to take a few days off because I wasn't feeling well at all. I'm hoping to start revising again tomorrow but I don't know if I have it in me.
