An aspiring Oxbridge student who suffers from a rare condition that stops her coping with stress fears the pressure of cramming for exams could kill her.
Jennifer Lloyd’s illness means instead of producing adrenalin to cope when she gets anxious, the 17-year-old’s body reacts by shutting down her vital organs.
She has had to begin revising for exams months in advance – in the hope she will banish any last minute cramming stress that could trigger her disease.
Jennifer suffers from Addison’s disease which leaves her in danger of suffering a medical crisis at times of stress. If she doesn’t receive rapid treatment, she vomits, passes out or could die.
The teenager, who is studying for her AS-levels, suffered a major attack that left her in hospital last summer when she was preparing for her GCSEs.
And she has even been forced to turn down interviews for Oxbridge schemes because she fears the stress of studying at the world-famous institutions away from home could be deadly.
