I'm too overwhelmed.

I have a ton of homework all the time but have a type of disability that people don't understand that makes me sick a lot so I can never finish all my homework. I've already talked to my school teachers and counselor. I need help, I am leaving school at the end of the semester but I don't know how to actually survive that long. It's too stressful, I'm crying every time I'm alone. please help (high school btw)

Alright here's what you need to do you just need to start off by relaxing. Push your school books aside and stop for a minute. Dry your eyes and try to settle down. Relax by listening to some music and to try and get your mind off of things. It is never good to over think things.

Are you in middle school, high school or college?
If it's college, try dropping a few classes, only doing one or two a week. Also you might want to see if there is any cure or treatment of your disability, and if there is, look into getting it.

Okay, so I would ask the guidence counselor at your school if you could possibly drop a class that is nonessential to you graduating. When doing HW I would try to turn off all distractions, and work in small increments (like 20 minutes at a time) then take a break by laying down or talking to someone, but try not to use electronics at all during this, as you might get distracted and stay there a long time. You could also try to talk to a parent or even therapist to let out stress and express your troubles and not have to hold them in.

Honey, I feel so sorry for you. Remember to take deep breaths. It might sound pretty clich?, but when you breathe shallowly, not enough air gets to your brain and you don't work as efficiently. Also, calm, slow breaths will calm and relax you. If you are in college, drop a few classes. And maybe try therapy.

Thanks, sadly my cleft pallet makes it so I can't breath deep but I get what you're saying.

Oh, that's tough. You might want to try yoga. Some of it is breathing, but there are poses you can do that are very relaxing.

Okay, first calm down! Its okay, people will help you through this. By homework i am assuming that this is weekend homework. I bet you have something going on Saturday or Sunday, so just tr to finish it tonight. If not, you still have 2 more days. Start with "powering down" that means shutting off all electronics(phone, iPod, gaming devices, tv). Next sort out your homework. Maybe (if you don't have a planner/assignment book) write down what work you have to do on a piece of paper. Now put what you have to do (books, papers) in a pile. Start with the easiest first. Hope i helped:)

That's sick, I'm also a straight a student so buzz off
Report as
You put it out there-- you asked for suggestions. Don't tell someone to buzz off because you don't like what he or she has to say. If you don't like the idea, don't use it.

Thank you Sancha :)

Alright sorry, but I'd at least expect morally right answers from society.

Take things slow, if you get dizzy relax for a bit then keep it up. I know you can do it! *Smiles*

You should ask your school for some accommodations. I have a disability too. And it greatly helps when they accommodate you. If they refuse to assist your disability. You should fight for the rights that'll help you and others in the future. If you don't mind me asking, what state do you live in? Look for an independent living center that's close to you. They help with different areas. Talk to your counselor.
