I find that NLD causes me to need more rest than most people. I think the brain needs more space to decompress. I have late-semester stress right now–papers and shorter assignments, plus lots of work hours. But when I get home, I’m usually too tired to do much. So I tend to relax. Speech therapy is a very intensive process.
Another thing–teachers sometimes don’t explain assignments very well. Or they assign deadlines way too close to other ones (or unrealistic because the work takes so much longer than the teacher thinks it will). I’m getting things done slowly, but all semester, I’ve had no time for the free campus events, school activities, et cetera. I feel bad because these things are free to students, but there’s rarely time to attend them.
