You are an intelligent and dedicated person, don’t forget that.  You would have never made it this far if you weren’t.   You will get the job done and you will do it the best you can.  There are others who have to take 8 hour exams or have more difficult stressors in their family life during this time.  Be positive.  Your success is right around the corner.
