    funnily enough im curently at 88 hours without sleep.

    i rolled over in bed this morning to find the girl i like apparently in my bed, before she sat up and slit her throat.

    i see things in the corner of my eye that arent there and are SHIT scary, and i find myself paranoid at these imafges.

    i cant read things without it taking me 6-10 minutes to realise what it means or to put the words together

    ive blaked out (micro sleeps) 7 times today according to my parents, including near the top of the stairs

    ive (so far) had my room on fire, had ants (inside my arm) eat their way out and the flesh around it, and ive had the skin around my eyes melt in the mirror

    sugar, lucozade, dr pepper, tea are what ive taken to keep me awake so far

    im going to the doctors tommorrow to pick up some sleeping tablets.



    ive completely lost my appetite, find myself rocking back and forth without intention, my left leg has been giving way underneath me today from shaking uncontrollably. i cannot foxus on text corectly,



    i wouldnt recomend doing this on purpse to anyone. when im not halucinating i feel like im dead. when i am, i generally wish i was dead. cause is currently unknown and unfortuantly my doctors are useless as you have to make an appointment days in advance. i made this appointment at 22 hours without sleep. by the time my appointment is here, ill have had roughly 100 hours without sleep.

    until then i just need to try and not kill myself for whatever reason

    I'm all "fuzzy around the edges" and feel like I've had a whole lots of bbeers. I stood in the grocery store a while ago and just swayed badck and forth at the magazine rack.







    I don't think i've ever gone this long with no sleep at all. Quite an odd sensation. I couldn't be a doctor and have to do those wild "36 on/36 off" emergency room hours, or whaetever it is they do.



    STarting to hit me really good in the past half hour...there's NO WAY I'll make it to midnight.



    I might not make it to the end of this post...







    Ah yes... reminds me of my days in residency... you'll survive, just don't try to drive anywhere!

    i had a similar experience to what was mentioned about waking up and not being able to think at all ! its scary as shit and ironically i also played Tony Hawks skate boarding for over 16 hours , and didn't sleep till 1:00 in the day then i woke up and i couldn't think anything but how my perspective view is flipping around like the half pipe camera switched in the skating game , i had that situation for about 5 minutes and it started going away gradually till a gained some sense in my brain , it happened few more times and it still terrifies me ! but it happens only when i get busy with something for too long without getting proper sleep , i also have simplified cases of that when i wake up with a panic attack but i atleast aware where am i and who am i ... sleeping is some serious shit kids don't skip nights !

    for my degree dissertation in 2010, i went through 36 hours straight. Been drinking coffees and a cheap substitute to Redbull called Boost. I drank a 1 lt bottle of that stuffs and trust me, that was the first and last time I drank that. It made my heart pumping fast and suffocation, but after half an hour, it worked and I seriously did not felt sleepy. I were editing, typing, printing the thesis for such long hours and once done, I remember that I could barely sleep again for the next two days.



    I know on that long night and day, I said why we need to sleep when you can do so much things being awake...hope one day there will be something to make us awake for much long hours and less fatigue..



    In 2012, I got another thesis and just now I'm about to do the same thing but much longer than the last time...

    Again, ladies and gentlemen, not to preach but sleep deprivation is the fast track to psychosis and long-term mental illness. It's fun one or twice but beyond that, please be cautious.


     


    There's a reason why sleep deprivation (banging on the cell wall, slapping, bright lights and noise, etc.) is a ~major~ torture technique.

    iv been up sense Monday and it's now Wednesday, and im seeing some werid shit right now, like im starting to see floaty's hovering around my room , i think im seeing house flys but im not..


    And im taking 50 MG TRAZODONES ( Google it ) and they dont even work, i feel like im eating candy, i smoke pot 2 but that stopped helping me sleep when i was like 13 .. i guess it's time to up the Millgram on these peace of shit trazodones .. and trust me i tryed everything none of it works for me any more, it's kinda depressing . I think my body just gotten to dependent on pills to make me sleep or maybe im just to stressed out and cant get those voices to shut up, i dont know if anybody like me has problems with crap like this, maybe one day ill just grow out of this im only 17 by the way, Anyway let me know tho , it'll be nice to share the misery with somebody for once :)

    I like to think of this thread as a kind of mysterious confessional, where the sleepless and drug addled wander by every few years, completely unaware of the huge gaps between visits.

Ive been reading a 1000page book on psychology, of which a fair chunk was on sleep/dreaming.



    Sweet dreams, or not!



    oh yeah, I forgot to say, if you force yourself to stay awake you will actually go to sleep *standing up*, and if you (or usually someone else) stopped even this then you will *die*!. However its unlikely to happen, as eventually you would get so tired that it would become the singularly most important bodily drive and you would go to sleep even if it meant sleeping in a ton of horse shit, basically you wouldn't care!

    Cool! I'm going to stay up for 36 hours now just to see what they dreams are!

    Yes, or you could get something that happened to me when I was 20... I would stay up all night, then go to bed at about 5am, wake up at say 9am. First few days, all fun and games. Then, at about 6am I would feel this cold presence in the room and I felt as though I was screaming but I didn't know if I was awake or asleep. 


     


    Have fun :)

    I have stayed up 7 days in a row that's when you really start seeing shit man the most hallucination's are based off of what your thinking about and what your watching (if your watching a movie,game or short youtube video) try not to think about or watch anything scary or creepy also you might get headache's and possibly vomiting if you stay up for 5 or more day's it's very hard to do but for some a fun challenge

    Yeah, I've been close to that...I think my record was 5 days....or so....much of it is just a blur now.


     


    The first 2 days aren't too bad, by the fourth though you start noticing your heartbeat a lot more, and then the hallucinations kick in. 


     


    BUT, if you do manage to stay up for five days, I guarantee you that the sleep that follows will be the most blissful thing you'll ever experience.  I think I slept close to a full day afterwards, like 24 hours.

    Last year, I was busy preparing a party at 6am and it ended at 10pm straight. I have really never had a good night sleep after the party since I have a flight to catch up for my travel. So I ended up more than 48 hours without a sleep. I never felt sleepy the whole time since I was enjoying my trip and party. I don't even also feel that I am tired at all.

    This thread is so golden, I signed in just to post.


     


    Hitting hour 40 now. Texted my minimum wage job to tell I'm not coming in today. It might get me fired, but right now I don't care. I guess the reason for the insomnia was the INTENSE week at work. As in, 8 hours a night of running around unloading stock in a big department store. The kind of job that leaves you panting, sweating, and drinking water by the gallon. It's sale week now, plus Christmas stock is coming. You know how you're sometimes so tired and stressed out, you can't sleep? Yeah. 


     


    Interesting effects include: resurgence of my anxiety/depression (been medicating for a few years, SSRI's, with very good results). Bouts of crying, shivers, and suicidal thoughts. If I wasn't so used to this, I'd be worried I might do something stupid.


     


    there's like a pressure in my head that keeps me from staying still in bed, and my skin is kinda crawling, hot and cold at the same time.


     


    Also, when I start drifting off to sleep, I get vivid dreams/ hallucinations. Its like the moment I close my eyes, a dream begins. And its really, really weird stuff. A dream, but one I'm conscious in, and much more lifelike. My fauvorite up until this point involved a sword fight with a shapeshifting monster, something akin to Giger's Alien, taking place in an abandoned temple on a frozen glacier. I nearly cr**ed my pants, but then I realized its a dream, and I WILLED myself awake. Then I look at the watch, and minutes have passed, where I experienced hours. And then this repeats every time I drift off, multiple times, each time with a new dream.


     


    I'm actually surprised my writing is so lucid. But then again, maybe I just imagine it is, and in reality its the bastard child of Scientologic teachings and Dadaism. 


     


    All in all, if you're planning to skip sleep, be damn sure to stay away from SSRI's and/or psychiatric conditions.


     


    It's interesting to think what will happen with this thread. In 10 more years one of us might come back here, and spend the rest of the day looking for his jaw on the floor.
