Positive thoughts coming from me.  At this point, I’d recommend speaking to the professor about the midterm you missed.  Focus on the exam you have tomorrow, dedicate this weekend to the paper.  On monday-wednesday, focus on the exam for thursday and begin the 20 page paper (even if that means just outlining).  Thursday-friday study like no other for the other two finals and dedicate the weekend to the 20 page paper.  Edit it monday and send it off!

Eek, that’s a lot! It’ll be a hard rest of the term, but you can do it. Something similar (although not quite as bad) happened to me last year. I was dead tired because I was working 50 hours a week and it was my first year at college. I missed classes and what classes I was there for I was physically too exhausted to really learn. I ended up quitting one of the jobs two weeks before the final quarter ended just so I could play intense catch-up. It was frustrating and exhausting, but  did it. You’ll start to feel relieved as you make it through the first few things. Just focus on them one at a time and you’ll be okay. 

Good luck!

You can make it! Could you get extensions on your papers to take a little pressure off? Just remember it’s only two weeks. Just try your best!

Oh girl that’s so much on your plate.  You can do it though and then afterward, the semester will be over and you can relax!

Deep breaths – take things ONE DAY AT A TIME.  if you’ve kept your professors updated you should get a little slack for medical problems.   But you can only do what you can do each day, so don’t kill yourself over it – it’s more important that you stay healthy.  good luck, good vibes and all the brainwaves I can spare to get you through your craziness

Could you get an extension on any of this, seeing as how you missed school due to a medical condition?

Awww!! It sounds like you are totally overloaded! The wisdom teeth episode sounds like it sucked bigtime 🙁 Unfortunately, something like that tends to take immediate priority over other things and it’s hard to get back in the flow of day to day events when everything piles up. Try not to get too overwhelmed though. I know that’s a huge thing to say and not so easy to do, but you only have a couple weeks of school left! I agree with Lilyfaith that you need to just focus on one thing at a time. You can only do so much, and if you have to take an incomplete in something, or a lower grade, it’s still something and you did your best. When I was in school, I tended to procrastinate till the last minute to write my papers. Not the best practice but it can be done and sometimes (surprisingly) the papers turn out really well. Hang in there – the semester is almost over!!

Does your school have a guidance counsellor or centre for students with disabilities?  You obviously don’t have a permanent disability, but when I was in my last year of my degree I fell down the stairs at my dorm and suffered a pretty bad concussion.  My short term memory was seriously affected for about a month, to the point that I could read a test question, and not remember it by the time I got to the end, and I couldn’t be trusted to cook my own meals without forgetting what I was making and walking away with the stove on.  Both these things at my school came up swinging for me, and I was able to postpone or be excused from a few tests and papers.
