Stress & Nightmares

20 April 2009

Those clinical finals are in a week’s time and if all goes well, this will be my last set of exams as an undergraduate student. Compared to the written papers in January, I don’t think I’m as stressed up. This time ’round, there has not been any bouts of tears and sadness alternating with unexplainable euphoria (yeah, stress sends me into a cyclothymic state).

On the other hand, I have been having nightmares every night for the past week. It is getting quite ridiculous. There had been times when I’d wake up in the middle of the night feeling, for a lack of a better description, disturbed and uncomfortable, but I could not remember my dream. In the recent days, I have been having exam-related dreams. Things seem to go wrong in those dreams all the time… it ranges from me being late, to mixing up dates, or even just messing up the exams entirely.

I need to get through the next 11 days and then have a proper break. :-(

I’m not working as hard as I was for the writtens, and I cannot bring myself to. Don’t get me wrong, my study group meets up very regularly and we would work for a couple of hours each time… but this is just so different from the writtens. Hmm… Worrying?

    I should say something encouraging at this point.

    Drawing a blank.
