>It sounds like you've got a ton on your mind right now, including therapy stuff. It's so hard to concentrate on school when life gets in the way. Try not to worry about the physics grade. Is it possible that lots of folks in the class did that poorly? I've had classes like that before, and usually it works out okay.

Yeah, the class average was 57; I got 55. What alarms me is that the professor is totally indifferent and just says we need to work harder. I know I couldn't have, really, although if I start studying now for the next one I might make it. It's especially disturbing given our class; we're in the last year of a really challenging program which selected for motivated students (read: nerds with no fear for their lives) in the first place, so when the class average is failing, there's a problem.

>But you know, maybe he really needed to go to the bathroom or something. Or since you had "hastily" scheduled this, maybe he knew he had something else coming up and had cut the time too short?

Dang, gg, you do realise I am never going to look at his fidgeting the same way again, right? I guess something must have come up; I don't know about it being cut short (because of short notice he gave me an extra half hour to show up if I needed it), but it really isn't usual of him. Normally I have to remind him when the session's nearly over. Maybe he finally learned and installed a clock in *his* field of vision?

>I am glad you left your tool there. Try to take it easy on yourself in the next few days. Your concerns about visiting your boyfriend--well, you've got a bit of time to work on that, right?

Less than I would like (need to book before prices skyrocket), but yes. It's starting to seem clearer that maybe I really am not in good enough shape to be visiting right now, I just can't imagine how I'm going to explain this to him. And the thought of choosing to stay at home is an unpleasant one under the best of circumstances. I'm giving myself until a month before I'd be going, though.

Thanks for the reply, and no worries about rambling; it's a great hobby of mine, as if you couldn't tell.
