Drop thoughts: Stress is not just about the situation; but primarily caused by our thoughts about the situation.

Talk with others: Your information indicates you're 45, but we're never too old to grow up! :-) seriously, life transitions and developmental changes are stressful -- but they also open the gates to new adventures. Talking with others who have been through what you're facing can help you see things in a larger perspective; stress can decrease from this and also from feeling less alone with your crisis.

Guided imagery: Try having someone trained in hypnosis/guided imagery lead you through taking an imaginary exam, being in an imaginary relaxed state, a week before and then the day before an actual exam. It can make a huge difference. I do this all the time with my clients with great outcomes!
