NCLEX stress!

I feel like the impending date of April 27th will never be here. I know I shouln't be rushing things and I'm glad I picked that date but it's like the waiting and stress is worse than the actual test. That, and I guess it was stress that brought on a case of very painful shingles. So, I've got incredible nerve pain running from my C7 all the down to my forearm. I can barely lift my arm because it's so weak. But, I am choosing to ignore this and will just keep plugging along. The more I study the more Irealize how much I don't know and this makes me more and more nervous. So far, I'm about halfway through saunders, I'm on my third exam cram test and I plan to order NCSBN review for the last three weeks before the test.
That's about it for now, I wish I was writing about my garden, or fun things that I've been doing but it's been pretty much a non stop study session for a while now....

Get well soon! I am pulling for you! NCLEX will be here and gone before you know it and you will kick its butt!

Just what you don't need right now~shingles! So sorry to hear this Becky. Is there anything you can take to ease the discomfort? Perhaps working in the yard an hour or so a day (weather permitting) would be a good stress reliever. Hang in there, you can do it. Love Aunt Linda
