Transitioning from middle school to high school was a shock for me. I was not prepared for the larger workload and higher expectations. Every single night I found myself staying up past midnight to finish my homework, and this led to my biggest problem of all: fatigue.
Fatigue was affecting my performance in school, but I felt there wasn’t anything I could do about it. I was working hard to get my homework done early, but the load never lightened. I even tried things like listening to classical music while I studied, getting help from teachers, and creating schedules for myself. But I still had to stay up just as late, and I was still so tired.
Since nothing I’d tried was working, I decided to ask my Christian Science Sunday School teachers if they had any ideas. I like that what I learn in Sunday School is practical, and that I can find answers and healing through prayer, even when I can’t find them anywhere else.
