Like most college students I tend to procrastinate. However, in February I realized how important it is to complete work ahead of time so if an emergency happens you don’t have the added stress of trying to complete homework. In the beginning of February I was having intense migraines that made it impossible to accomplish much while it was happening. Eventually, I went to the ER and was able to get a referral to a neurologist and suggestions for medications to help. 

The best advice I would give to anyone dealing with an impromptu disturbance in their schedule is to communicate. I let my professors know about the migraines and that I spent the day in the ER. More often than not, you will find that they will be compassionate.
