You poor thing. Yes, stress is real. Yikes. I feel for you. This worked for me in my college years. I had to write down my whole day. When it was all down on paper for me it was easier to accomplish for some reason. I don't know what your financial situation is for eating. But, I was broke. I ate alot of apples. Studies also have proven an apple will wake you up and give you the proper vitamins your body really needs when its run down or tired. True statement: An apple a day keeps the doctor away. I know.....I've been hearing since my Grandmother. (( She would be 130 by now )) Also, you're immune system is run down thats why you're getting flu like symptoms. You need some TLC !! (Vitamins couldn't hurt) The heavy meals will definately wear you down. Your body needs fuel all through your crazy hours. Eat every two hours. Trust me. Its a fact. Small portions. That would make 6 meals a day. ((( not MEAL ))). Like an apple, then two hours later, p b & j, then some protein. Once you get your digestive system calmed down and your scedule tuned up, you should feel much better. And work with an alarm. If you need to sleep a few hours at a time, do it. Make it a relaxed few hours. I don' t know if you're a partier, but, thats a huge battle right there. I know how it is trying to be young and have friends and a life other than a work load and classes. Been there. It just takes alittle organization and you can master it! I promise. You're poor tummy is doing alot of worrying. And thats what is causing the churning. Careful, you don't want ulcers or gastritis. Cut, back on the soda, coffee, spicy foods etc., until it feels better too. Best wishes to you. Go for your dreams. Organize your outsides and your insides will comply! :-)
