    I'm currently studying at university and ill with a recurrent skin infection.. I'm not exactly bed bound, but this is the third time in two months I've had to go on antibiotics for the SAME thing.. that in itself is stressing me out and the antibiotics make me feel ill/sick as it is!

    Anyway, I have an exam tomorrow and two deadlines within the next week. I am well enough to sit the exam but the stress and anxiety of this recurring infection has really been distracting me..

    does anyone have any advice on how to cope with this/how i can just chill out a bit???

    Thank-youuuu

    Aww that's stress, do your exam (revise) and go home straight away and get some rest. For your assignment, break it up. Whenever I am ill I do 500 words or do one point then have a break/rest for an hour then do another point/500 words until your done. Get well.

    You might be able to submit for extenuating circumstances for your exam and say that you've not been able to revise properly because of what's been going on, and then if your exam goes wrong then it might help you pass - but you'd have to do it sharpish because they usually need those submitted before you sit the exam itself.

    That sounds like a good idea, I have been trying to break up one of my assignments but it's a group portfolio in pairs.. 10,000 words! Feel like I'm dumping my workload on my friend but I think she understands. I think I'll allow myself a little hours nap or netflix session once my exam is done :^_^: thanks.
