I am so stressed with my homework! Aargh!!! I don't even have time to finish watching DOTS and Twice's Vapp! I'm like TT!
The title says it all... I cant stand to see even a single note or tutorial anymore!!! Siao liao. On one hand, cannot not study. Later fail how? On the other hand, I prefer drinking bleach than memorizing this freaking protein structure. Who said uni is easier than JC?! Bull to the shit, I say!
Hello everyone! I was diagnosed with ADHD combined type about 6 months ago, but I've struggled through my college career for far longer than this. I've taken breaks and constantly almost failed out my first go around. I'm in my second round now, in a summer semester after my first year back. I've definitely shown improvement (passing most everything with C's instead of failing everything) but of course it's always a struggle. I'm in a top 25 university, majoring in classical studies and going into my 3rd semester of Greek and 1st semester of Latin in the fall. I was wondering, do you have any good, personal favorite strategies to help with coping with a high stress academic environment and high workload while trying to manage ADHD? Any strategies dealing with studying language would of course be particularly helpful but, heck, I can barely keep up with my regular life anyway, even life routine strats would be appreciated.
Stress is anything that alters your natural balance. When stress is present, your body and your mind must attend to it in order to return you to balance. Your body reacts to stress by releasing hormones that help you cope with the situation. That in turn takes energy away from the other functions of your brain, like concentrating, or taking action. There are two different sources of stress: external triggers, like getting a poor grade or breaking up with your girlfriend/boyfriend, and internal triggers, like placing high expectations on yourself. Stress is a part of everyday life. There are many instances when stress can be helpful. A fire alarm is intended to cause the stress that alerts you to avoid danger. The stress created by a deadline to finish a paper can motivate you to finish the assignment on time. But when experienced in excess, stress has the opposite effect. It can harm our emotional and physical health, and limit our ability to function at home, in school, and within our relationships. But the good news is that, since we are responsible for bringing about much of our own stress, we can also do much to manage stress by learning and practicing specific stress-reduction strategies.
