The side effects to my medications were bad. Many of the medications I took for my mental illness caused me drowsiness and even dizziness. I am trying to focus on all of my successes I had in my 30s instead of rehashing the past. I had some successes in my 30s that were happy successes too and for those I thank God. I think now that I registered for the Praxis Core I will definitely pass Core reading and I may just take the option to hand write my two essays. There are two three to four paragraph essays for the Praxis Core.
