I wish you all luck ! Try not to be too hard on yourself, easier said than done, I know. Sometimes, it just takes time. Sometimes falling down is the best motivation for getting up again, even if you feel like giving up because you've been feeling as if you have to claw your way up, and you're still no where near to the top. Learn from your mistakes, take your time, forget the deadlines (as much as possible), a lot of learning can't be rushed, and when you're studying, do all that you possibly can to stay focused. Sometimes, you need to look elsewhere besides your text books for answers, there are plenty of resources, Instructor Debby for starters, other medical books, the Internet, and sometimes even then you won't get it, that's when you have to tune into your own wisdom/intuition and simply risk it, accept the imperfect, and remember this is school time, you are allowed to make mistakes here, again learn from them. You have to have a certain level of comittment to the craft, a certain respect and yes love for it, you definitely have to make a genuine effort, no matter what, and inspite of what seems a lot of times like a lot of nonsense. The devil is in the details, and the Medical Coding devil is a crafty fellow. If you can't quite keep a step ahead of him, at least do your best-est to stay on the trail of his roller coaster like tail..... "It ain't over, until it's over !" :)
