Never ever doubt the human endeavor. I did it, so can you. Working full time, looking after two kids, had to take CK within three and a half months.
My score may not be stellar, but I passed and did ok. I knew what I was aiming and prepared accordingly. Just stay focused, work your ass off, your night should be your day. Make some voice memos on phone about things that you found difficult during the night time study. Listen to your voice talking back to you when you have free time during the day. Helped me a great deal, am sure will help you too. I slept for an average 3-4 hours/day. I was physically destroyed during my prep, but then I passed. My back is still sore and my right foot is numb due to all the sitting. But, I'm not complaining. It was my decision to take this crappy usmle on and I managed to come out smiling.
Never be discouraged or loose hope. Think of your family in times of distress and it will invigorate you. Study so hard, that you surprise yourself thinking did I just do that? Best of luck.

I am a full time worker from 8-5 day except for weekends, my job involves moving around all day, I managed to study for ck by only doing Usmleconsult, kaplan qbank, MTB2 and now UW. I only study from after work from 5 to 12 daily except for fridays which is my off day, its hard its difficult no life at all but if you really want to finish it you can.
