    Default Bummed

    I've been having a bad week. It has been so gloomy and I thought I might actually get out this week while my mom was off work. I didnt end up doing anything because my friends messed up the plans we had and everyones just been to busy to do anything with me. I've just been really down and Im having a hard time finding the motivation to get anything done. I have alot of school work I was supposed to be doing over the summer thats going to be due in a few weeks when I go back to school and I've barely even started it. This school year is going to be so hard because I'm going to be taking REALLY hard classes because Im trying to get college credits now while I can get them pretty cheap. Im just so bummed and so stressed out about things and school hasnt even started yet! Ugh.

    Ritzbit,
    Please don't be so hard on yourself with regards to the schoolwork. If you get too stressed out that will make matters worse. I know sometimes we get disappointed when we make plans and it does not work out. If there is any consolation I too went through something similar this past weekend.

    My cousin who I have not seen in 5 yrs but speak to almost everday came down to florida with his family but was too busy to see me. Obviously I was too sick to visit him or hang out fishing with his family..... I felt bad. The alternative of forcing myself would have been worse so that took me out of the dumps!!

    Cheer up!!! take it one day at a time.

    Ritzbit...

    Gentle hugs to you...

    I'm sorry you've had disappointment, letdown, sadness and frustration....you're right. It just plain sucks.

    No other way to say it better. When we look forward to something....get our hopes up....only to have it fall through, it just plain hurts. Just wanted to say I'm sorry your heart is aching.

    The motivation thing is so difficult to muster when day to day life is a struggle and your health is such a challenge. You're having to put a lot of energy into that right now, so that doesn't leave you much left over for motivation, especially for school work. Do you guys start school in middle of August? Just wondering, because my kids don't go back till after Labor Day in September.

    Let the school work sit for a few more days and concentrate on taking care of yourself first. It might be that some rest for your mind and body will help you focus better on the book work. Don't get ahead of yourself worrying about the long school year ahead, like DassarRn said....with this illness, it's best to take everything one day at a time. I know that's hard to do when you're a teenager and you're chomping at the bit, but that's what will get you through the tough parts.

    And now you've got all of us here to support you through your school year...we'll be just a keystroke away.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Hugs,

    Lori

    I hate having to start school so early. We have a weird schedule and get more breaks throughout the school year since we start earlier. I have to read a 500 page book and anwser a bunch of questions on it still. And 2 other small books. I have to come up with a whole presentation on one of them. I also have to do a packet and write a 200 word story in spanish. And on top of that I have to read the first 3 chapters of my US history book and take notes while I read it.

    It just feels like a lot already and its going to be even harder when school starts. Im going to be killing myself all year with all the work. I'll probably be on here whining everyday lol at least it'll keep me busy. Once I get going I can get alot done. Like today it took me half the day to get but once I was up I drove my mom around and we went to the store and Im helping make dinner and stuff tonight.

    Thanks for listening to me whine lol

    Hey Ritzbit
    Sorry you have a lot on your plate sick or not seems like a lot! One thing I know from being in school/college is you have to tackle it and the sooner the better to eliminate or at least try to keep the stress down. Try doing one project at a time and go from there. Read one chapter at a time and then take 10-15-20 minutes breaks in between chapters. I told my nephew to study/read like this and it really helped him complete his assignments. Again...One project/homework/reading at a time and just take breaks so you ensure you are retaining the information but giving yourself time to regroup and relax. Your going to do just fine this year in school just don't allow your thoughts to consume your energy and get you worked up and stressed out.
    P.S. WHINE and complain away...I am always here to read and respond to you and provide support as is everyone else on here!
    Please keep us all updated on your status so we can tell you how proud we are of you!!!

    (((hugs)))) Sweetie, you have all our shoulders and ears. Sorry you're so down but it's understandable. That's overwhelming and you haven't even started yet. What books do you have to read?

    ribbitz,
    I'm sorry to hear that you have been having a crappy bummed out week. It's hard to know that you need to get something accomplished that, physically, you just aren't up to at the moment. Being sick and flarey really does suck. When do you go back to school? Maybe you can break your projects down into more managable bits, like 10-10:30 read every day 10:30-1 rest, 1-1:30 write a few pages on what you read 1:30-4 rest some more, etc.
