I agree, you should take the klonopin. Maybe if it makes you tired you can drink some coffee or something, but being tired sounds preferable to your emotional state right now which isn't letting you study at all.

Try hard not to compare yourself to other people. It will only bring you down if you compare yourself to those perfectionists when you are at this rough time in your life. Put into your position, I'm sure those perfectionists would have trouble too.

I know the fear of not knowing whether or not you will pass a class. It's not useful to condemn yourself to failure before you've even failed. Nothing is certain until you get your grade. I thought I failed my class for sure after I wrote the final exam, but it turns out I got a D, which is a pass.

Try studying a bit even when you don't feel like it. Studying may just be the thing to keep your mind off things right now. I find I feel better when I am busy and don't have time to ruminate. Try not to worry about passing or failing. Just concentrate on learning the material. You don't need the extra pressure on top of all your other stuff. Try your best and if you fail it is not the end of the world. It's just a class, not your life.
