I was stressed, I had too much on my plate.
OR
I was stressed;I had too much on my plate.


Also, this sentence is it,

I didn't have time to revise, even though I wish I had.
OR
I didn't have time to revise;even though I wish I had.

Thanks

As far as I know I think it's a semi colon for the first, but not the second
Also, you need a space between the semi colon and the next word
