  • What's the most you've gone without sleep?

    Me?

    76 hours

    I almost died.

    When I was fighting fires after my freshman year in college I went without sleep every other night for two weeks. And the nights we slept we got about 4 hours. And it wasn't like we were sitting around during the day, we were working extremely hard.

        I did about 60 once.....


        and I agree with the Dark Knight, it felt like I was dying.

          Bah...Sleep is overrated.

          It actually depends on what your definition of sleep is. Do you mean REM or dream-stage sleep/restorative sleep? If so, then over the past 23 years I've rarely gotten *any* sleep--I have an anamoly where instead of going into the REM stage, I end up having a slight seizure/brain activity spark up that keeps my body from getting the rest it needs. That's why it seems that I'm "always sick"...or "always tired".

            I meant that I went 60 hours in a full wakeful state where I didn't even have time to put my head down or otherwise rest my body or brain. I wasn't even napping

                  Sounds about right...
                  The summer after my freshman year of college/during winter break, I worked for a certain internet "superstore" which was open 24/7/365. My scheduled shift was from 10am-8pm (4 10s) and I would usually get suckered into staying to work the graveyard as well. I'd get home about 8am (hour long drive), get food, work out, take a shower, then head back to work. I did that almost all the time. I guess I just don't really miss sleep too much. Of course, when I do sleep I want to stay in bed for-EVER because my bed is so comfy/cozy.

                    Wow. I only went about 50 something hours without sleep once.

                        4 days 14 hours 32 minutes. on a school trip round france and belguim, since it was 3 nights and days on a bus i didnt sleep any of those, 4th night hotel, room mates who had slept, decided they didnt wanna sleep that night. once you get past a certain point it doesnt seem to get any worse.

                            Scared to sleep?

                              When I was little I used to be scared to sleep when I would get these horrible nightmares. Now all I want to do is sleep - instead of come to work!
