Unhappy please help

Ok im freaking out so if someone can give me encouragement and hope that would be great. I have my step1 in 2 weeks and im freaking out. I have been studying for 7 months and im averaging about 55-65% on uw the second time around. My uw ass was 204, nbme 7 189, and nbme 11 200. I have done dit twice, fa 8 times, kaplan physio, goljan. I dont know what else to do. I have already extended my 3 months so i have to take it. I have no money to re extend and i dont think i have the sanity to go on for much longer. I feel like im forgetting things. I dont know if its my anxiety because evrytime i take an nbme i start gagging, like it gets bad. Can someone help???

Make sure you balance yourself and try not to let the anxiety get the best of you. Try to stay refreshed. All that stress will eat you alive if you're not careful. Good luck!

Maybe take 1-2 days off? Then just try to relax and go through all the high yield you can. Best of luck!
