    Thanks ladies. I am definitely feeling better knowing that I have not missed out on the test. That just sent me over the edge this morning. School has always been a big stressor for me. Getting behind doesn't help but I'm thankful that I have understanding teachers.

    Karma, yes I do go to UTA. I grew up in Denton and actually lived on College St. right by TWU. Do you know where that is?

    Amanda, I think regular massages sounds like a terrific idea! Actually I found a Wellness Center nearby that does lymphatic draining (massage & detoxifying foot soak) - it sounds really interesting.

      Gosh Jaime school can be tough enough without health issues! I'm glad your teacher has a heart. My friend is in a similar situation as yours. He asked, in advance, if he could take a test early because he had a medical procedure on test day, and his professor basically told him to drop and re-enroll when he was feeling up to making the commitment. (btw he has a complaint in to the dean!)

      Maybe you discussed this elsewhere, but have you considered acupuncture/pressure? Massages will help too, you deserve some relief!

        JaimeLynn I am thinking of you, I know how hard life can be when there are health issues. You are a smart, determined girl and in the end you will get where you want to be. If it takes a little longer that is okay, life is sometimes like that, who knows what you will learn during the detours

          What?? That is so rude of his teacher! Especially since he let him know in advance.

          You know, in the same Wellness Center that I was talking about w/Lymphatic draining there is also an Acupuncturist. I was actually about to search/start a thread about this. Have you done it? How did it work out for you? I don't have a ton of money to throw around but I would like to invest some in something like this. For right now the Lymphatic detox seems to hit the nail on the head, but after that I may seek out Acupuncture therapy...

            JamieLynn - Trust me on this one, if you need to tak time off or drop another class, do!

            I was really sick for about 4 semesters in a row and kept thinking I could do it. I was feeling terrible, my grades weren't that great - normally A or B down to C. I get really depressed which made it all even worse. I ended up failing that 5th semester and having to sit out. After all of the turmoil, I stayed out of school. I only have 5 classes left to get my BA and will return the semester after the wedding, but only part time.

            If I had it to do over again, I would have just sat out one more semester or not tried to go full steam ahead when my body wouldn't let me.

            Know that someone else knows what you're going through and I'll send happy thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery!

            One one my semesters was when I took Women's Health Issues. How weird?!? And my instructor was the one who wrote the book. Talk about being screwed on the test...

              It's such a small world. Yep, I know where that is. I actually live in Frisco, but commute to Denton. :-( I know a few people who went to UTA, I probably would have gone too if it wasn't so far from Frisco!

              Good Luck with the test on Friday! Make sure to let us know how it goes.

                  I'm so sorry about all the stress and everything you've got right now. Being sick and stressed together is not a good combination. I know you'll work it out and you'll do just fine! It sounds like you've got a good plan in place for finishing school...now if we can just get you feeling better!!!

                  Hugs to you hon...I know this is probably SOOOOOO frustrating!

                    It is definitely nice to know someone out there knows first hand what I'm going through so thanks!

                    Like I said before, taking off from school last semester got me really depressed so I'm going to try my best to complete these 3 classes. I can do it!!! I'm soooo lucky, I have really supportive and caring teachers this year. I'm taking Women's Health Issues, French 101 and Intro to Interdisciplinary Studies (requirement for my major). French is SOOOO much more difficult than I thought - I used to be a Senior Spanish major but it was way too stressful so with only 3 classes to go I switched to Interdisciplinary Studies (INTS). I thought French would be a challenge but that I would have somewhat of an edge having learned another foreign language. WRONG. LOL. The teacher goes soooo fast but she is really really sweet - always willing to work with you, give you extra credit, etc. Can't complain there! My INTS class is very different for me but the teacher is so understanding of my medical issues thus far - she's already let me make up 2 quizzes.

                    As for Women's Health - I'm studying for the test right now and I hate to say it but it looks E-A-S-Y. Multiple choice with questions like "What is bulimia?" "What is sexism?", "What does an acupuncturist do?" "What are some concerns with herbs to cure illness/disease?". With all the medical research I've been doing it's helped a LOT. I can't believe this is an Upper Level class. I really, really feel thankful for this hand that's been dealt this semester. Yes, I had to drop American Lit. but I can make that up later with a better teacher.

                    *Keeping my fingers crossed* for a great semester ahead!!!!
