Last summer, they tried me on, I can't remember the name, but I was told to take it before bed. That was an understatement. I pretty much needed to take it while I was in bed because it put me out immediately!!! And by morning I was fucked! I could barely walk from the parking lot to the library about a 5 minute walk without thinking about stopping somewhere for a nap!

I missed many classes! And would fall asleep on benches and in the library from around 9am to 1 or 2 pm! The sad thing is that the medication was pretty helpful!

My mood was pretty good, I felt really good! But that was only after the affects would ware off, and they wouldn't completely until about 6pm! I have lightened my course-load! I am taking 4 classes I have to for fear of not receiving the funds I need to be able to pay for school.

I just started trying different things for it and some have actually been helping me. Taking a lot of little breaks to tell myself that everything is going to be OK, I can do it, etc.

Or I'll take a longer break in the middle of my homework and do something active to take my mind off of school and release the nervous energy. I'm hoping that eventually I'll have to do these less and less and I'll just stay calm throughout. New Member years on site. My daughter is 13, and she's having a horrible time with homework. We're trying to get her into a homebound program.

She's already missed so much and is so far behind that there is little chance she could get caught up. I have sat with her while she's tried to do her homework and even with me there, it took her an hour to do 2 algebra 1 problems.

But then, she had an up day where she decided to do her math without telling me. What she told me later was that she would do a set number of math problems, then go online for 5 minutes and look for websites she'd like to check out and bookmark it for when she got done. I am in School for the first time in 13 years and I have trouble with Math too. I have a great teacher that will work through problems you encountered on the assignments at the begining of class.

Months 1 — 9 — just a regular photographer Months 9 — 12 — began managing equipment for our territory under the direction on my photo manager Months 13 — 22 — continued with equip.

I did hiring paperwork, helped with background checks, he consulted with me on certain decisions he was making about scheduling and staff, he delegated a lot more to me. In this time, that photo manager was a one directive delegate with me. I was always successful because every task I was given was broken down. Then the unthinkable happened.
