    I just got sick this past friday... so I don't know if having insomnia is worse than getting sick.

    And yes I will still take the MAY 11th test if I am still sick.

    My MCAT is on the 16th but the insomnia has already begun. I'm going to start working out every day...It always helps me sleep better and don't forget NO CAFFEINE!!-always keeps me awake. Good luck everyone :)

    i have no trouble falling asleep but then i wake up at like 5am and start thinking about studying. yesterday i stayed in bed until i fell back asleep. today i woke up at 6:15 and just decided to get up. maybe tomorrow i will sleep until 8...:sleep:

    i dont usually go to bed until around 1 or 1:30. i know some people probably get up at 6 every day... not me!
