This week has been physically and mentally exhausting. I had two group presentations, a group paper and three midterms (I have the final one tomorrow).
I have been more aware of the fact that I can get all of my assignments done despite the fact that my anxiety and depression make it extremely difficult to do so. My therapist always encouraged me to celebrate this as many people aren't able to do this, and as a result, need to drop out of school. And this has always been the case when it came to my daily homework assignments and projects. However, when it comes to studying I can not seem to focus. I will literally focus on everything else under the moon except for my exam. I will think about what I have to do tomorrow, next week, next month, what happened today, what my exact schedule will be tomorrow (and this almost never happens the way I plan it), etc. It is so ungodly frustrating because it ultimately causes me to get even more stressed out and anxious that I will not do well on the exam. And this is a continuous cycle that I cannot seem to break.
Has anyone else dealt with anything similar before? What do you recommend?
