You can do it!  Just make sure you have a planner and set your phone, computer, notes (whatever) reminding you to log in. Set a strict schedule for yourself on when you study and such. My husband does it with a head injury and he is set to graduate in the spring. He just plans his days very carefully.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!

I have memory problems, epilepsy, PTSD, severe migraines, shingles (lots of times) and now permanent nerve damage -I went to college and worked and still paying for college (30,000 left to pay off)

I have my Masters!!! It is not easy, you will cry, you will get frustrated, but it is able to BE DONE!!

I did it!! 

I wrote many notes, wrote reminders for everything-I took extra time in the classroom-I asked the teachers for extra time-most gave it to me-I would go on the top floor of the library-quiet floor and study-I would set goals for myself for the day, for the week, for the month, for the year (I still do) I would write them down, I would check them off

It may take extra time but you can do it!!! Hang in there!! Believe me and it CAN Be DONE!!
