Finals week. I'm about to slip into a coma

    It's final week. I have my last two finals tomorrow, just finished two today. When it's all said and done I will ahve studied 48 hours with no sleep. Before that, I've gotten 12 hours of sleep in the preceding three days.

    My dad's medical advice was not to have such a tortuous schedule. I rebuked this advice. In response, he did admit that it's possible that the coma I'm going to fall into is not fatal.

    I am literally delusional. My head feels like it's floating without a body. I think my body believes I'm being hunted by a pack of wolves or something (trying to rationalize the lack of sleep) so it's putting me into survival mode.

    If I am to slip away after all this, my final will for this forum is that Antilogic or downtown starts the VP candidates thread in 2016.

    Farewell all, it's been a pleasure.

    I have been struck by literally the worst cabin fever I have ever felt... it's amazing when you think, "I'm strong enough to do this" only to realize your body is breaking down in front of your own waking eyes. Sure makes you feel like just another animal.

    Go to bed. If you're sacrificing health because of school or work, you're doing it wrong.

    Medical school is pretty easy.

    You will get dramatically reduced returns, possibly negative, from any studying performed while delirious from sleep loss.

    Study within the limits of your body, no further.

    Scientific studies show that sleeping gives better test results than staying up and reading.

    I'm surprised you've managed to post so cogently despite having no sleep.
    Also: studying when you're knackered isn't a good idea. How do you understand and fit something into your skull when all you want to do is sleep?

    This is true. Sleeping on things helps memorization, along with everything else. Always make sure you get a large amount of sleep before a test.

    You should have planned out your study schedule better Dreadnought! :nono:

    It's actually a good idea to study for so long that you're not learning or memorizing anything anymore, you're harming your own health, and possibly forgetting the stuff you did learn before because of sleep deprivation.

    What do you know about it MV?

    Aren't you a slacker in a four year degree course on his 2nd year?

    Yeah, post back in a couple of years time Mr Slacks.

    Nooo...

    Seriously, man, don't kill yourself. Somebody besides me and downtown has to have a problem (and make the 2016 VP thread). ;)
