Sick During Finals

May 16, 2016 1:51 PM

It's the end of the school year, and I have 2 weeks of prep before we present our final projects to several hundred people. I have a cold, or something that's really messing with me but I can't really miss class right now. Any ideas on how to cope?

I know you go to much different school than I went to but when I had to do finals I was really sick, horible migraines and our finals were all just a bunch of tests. Idk what you have to do, but since I was on IOP I was able to request to take my test on a room by myself and for an extra hour on each test. I was able to focus more, and was able to take a break any time I needed to lay down. I ended up missing one day But was able to make it up. I wish I could be more helpful. But i hope yoire able to work threw whatever is messing with you though

Ferretbandit, try not to stress or it will make it worse. Tackle your studies one at a time, and take breaks. Hugs& prayers you do much better than you expect, and you feel better soon! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Thanks. My school's weird, so we have final presentations, a Gandhi museum exhibit which we show for 2 days (morning, then evening) plus a review based on art form. I also have final projects and tests in other classes. I'm trying to be at school, but it's really hard

Turns out I have a sinus infection, am on antibiotics again but should be better only a couple days before presentations. I'm nervous, but it will probably be found.
