    If the stress is affecting your health, sleeping patterns, etc then you're working too hard - slow down. I speak from experience. If you work yourself into the ground, it won't do you any good long term.

    Don’t really seem to get a good nights sleep when I’m stressed, usually I’m out like a light, I sometimes get a bit snappy too. Last exam is next Monday though :D

    McDaniel did you play for a CS clan called defcon one quite afew years back? With Soul and DK-Mech?

    Me too but sleep is important. For instance, tonight I have a stack of work to do - I'm putting it off in favour of beer and music knowing I'll get a good night's sleep and be fresh tomorrow. If I worked right until bedtime, I wouldn't then I'd be shattered tomorrow and waste the entire day.

    When I get stressed I find it even harder to sleep than normal and I get incredibly moody. Feel sorry for the people around me right now, feeling particulary stressed as I've started my exams which I'm not ready for. :(

    Yea he mentioned that a while ago, he saw you posting on here at uni once I think.

    It might have been sw1tch at one point but it was usually just switch.

    Small world ehh! and good luck with the exams, I'm sure you will do just fine.

    I said im stressed about exams - i already have a job and ontop of uni i work 3 days a week so have basically worked 7 days a week for 3 years. Ive not been out of work since i was 15.

    Its not the pressure of work as such i just get really bad at exams, thats all.

    I'm not able to sleep and my skin flares up and then I get into one downward spiral where my skin gets worse and end's up with me in hospital or stuck at home.

    Although at the moment I'm coping with my exams pretty well and It'll all be done at the end of the week!!!
