I'm praying very hard these days as easy child 1, my oldest ds who suffers from schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder, prepares to take the LSAT for the second time. He worked really hard prior to taking the test in October and was disappointed with his result, scoring below what he'd gotten in practice tests. Still, his score was high enough to get him attention from Tier 1 & 2 schools. But he wants Tier 1 for sure and he's taking the test again Dec. 6. Trouble is, he's struggling with an 'episode' currently - he tells me he's having sleep troubles in a major way, and some thought troubles, and he's hoping he'll manage to do his best in two weeks ... I can't stand it that this young man, who has struggled with scz since age 12, works SO hard and accomplishes so much, has so much potential, and if not for this illness would be able to do whatever in the world he wants. But the d*** thing wakes up and bites him at the most critical moments. That said, I'm SO proud of him for hanging in there and working so hard. I worry about him going through law school with the stress (a major trigger, but so far he's managed with exams in university) but it's not my place to tell him to back off and choose something easier ... I think I'm as stressed as he is, right about now!
