I start nursing school
in less than a week (eek!), and I am a little terrified of increased insomnia. When I become stressed or bogged down with classes, I tend to only get a few hours of sleep a night. I even run 4 or 5 miles a night, which helps to reduce stress, but I still suffer from insomnia.
Anyone else out there suffer from insomnia? If so, how do you deal with it? Any tips or suggestions for me to try?

nusing school = insomnia on many nights....not all but a lot. Sleep when you can and when you need it. You won't do yourself any good studying if you can't pay attention because of lack of sleep. I learned that my first semester. Better to take a nap (even though it may cut into your study time) and then be rejuvinated and study better for less time. I noticed in your post that you said you run 4 to 5 miles/ night. Make sure not to run right before trying to sleep because it won't work. Your body needs a few hours to get off that enegy high before it can sleep. Best of luck with the new adventure called nursing school.
