Waking up with this feeling and going to bed with this feeling
I had the same experience with step 1 preparation
So theres hardly anything u can do about it just just follow the flow and try to maximize ur daily performance

couldn't sleep last night . Benzodiazipines withdrawl or anxiety , I don't know. Can some one recommend me a good sleep aid . Like green tea or something herbal.

Feeling so low that , It feels like I cant do it. If I did for step 1 , why cant do it for step 2 ck. I don't for me with so many issues its going to take time but I can do it.

Guys, pls pray for me

Try writing down a motivating inspiring positive 10 to 15 word slogan abt urself... read it 5 to 10 times calmly then go to bed... it's kind of meditation... All the best stop worrying...

Have you tried melatonin? I took it a week before CS and it helped me tremendously. Put me to sleep before the big exam.

Don't worry too much bro, we all have similar feelings. Im a grad since 2011, and I have seen many of my same classmates already get into residency while I'm still stuck here taking exams. You are not alone, just remember you are probably in a better position then a lot of others, thats how I always look at it. Its sad no doubt but everyone has his or her own journey.

Just relax, take a few days off from studying, go out watch a movie, have some funů.and then get back on it after you have cleared your mind
