Anxiety r/t finals week

Definitely experiencing some anxiety over here! Ah, it's finals week! Just took an exam today, got a 93%, and have 2 more to go. I have been studying all day long, and I really have no motivation but I must study some more for my Health Assessment final tomorrow. I can't believe the semester is pretty much over. It went by super speedy! Anyway, I don't know how many of you love magazines but I love to read http://scrubsmag.com, which is a magazine for nurses and student nurses too. It has some good stuff and found this list of Top 10 Nursing diagnosis for nursing students. I can tell you for sure that I'm currently experiencing 4, 5, and 6! Take a look below and let me know which diagnosis you think you might have. 
10. Fluid volume deficit r/t dehydrating effects of caffeine
9. Impaired social interactions r/t inappropriate topics of conversation discussing bodily functions
8. Anxiety r/t time constraints, threatened loss of social activities and anticipation of constant clinical quizzing
7. Functional constipation r/t lack of time to go to the bathroom associated with moving at speed of light and still not getting everything done
6. Impaired skin integrity r/t decubitus ulcer formation from sitting for long periods of time while studying
5. Ineffective breathing pattern r/t anxiety attacks before exams
4. Risk for self-injury r/t excessive carrying of 2,000-lb. textbooks
3. Sleep pattern disturbance r/t waking up at 4 a.m. for clinical after getting to sleep at 2 a.m. from working on care plans
2. Altered thought process: caffeine-induced psychosis r/t increased coffee consumption
1. Self-care deficit r/t being a nursing student

Good Luck on all your finals friends!!!!
