Pray...I'm testing today

Nov 18, 2016 11:57 AM

I need prayers you guys. I'm taking my board certification test today. It's a really important, really hard, really long test. I'll be sitting at the computer for up to 5.5 hours. I have accommodations that allow me to stand and stretch but still, that's a LONG time. And on top of that a cold front blew in and I'm hurting more than usual and have a sinus infection that came out of nowhere, apparently with the front. Basically I feel like I have the flu and have been hit by a train.

Please pray that this headache goes away, my icy hot keeps me focused and as relaxed as possible, and I remember everything I need to so that I pass and only have to take this Koster one time. Thanks yall!

Have you taken it? If so how are you doing. I hope everything went well hun. I remember taking my LPN test. Back then if you answered enough questions right the machine would shut down. But if you had to many wrong answers it shut down too. Trouble was it didn't tell you why it shut down. What a heart stopping moment of your machine shut down. Mine did. I cried all the way home - convinced I had failed. Thankfully I was wrong. I hope and pray you aced it and that you aren't having too much pain from it.

Sending you blessings of comfort and focus. He will bring you what you need, you just need to trust Him. If they will let you, bring a comfy blanket or pillow or heating pad to sit on/wrap up in. It will be hard, but you've got this! You've worked hard for this; you are so much stronger than you know! 10 year old you would be so proud of and amazed of who you have become. Rest in that. 🙏

I took it! I couldn't take anything in, not a pillow or blanket or even a rubber band on my wrist for my hair. It was video taped, sound recorded, and my palm and prints were scanned anytime I had to ext/re-enter the room. Crazy! I feel good about it though.

I took a stretch break 1/2 way through, then again 3/4 through. I still waddled out and slept until 3 today bc I was wiped out, mentally, emotionally, and physically, but hopefully I passed and won't have to retake it

Well done you and I'm not surprised you were wiped out, you was in there a long time and anything that requires you to concentrate for that length of time, even with breaks, is going to wipe you out. Take it easy for the next few days and get plenty of rest.
Your in my prayers that you get your results quickly and you pass with flying colours xx
