Thank you (all of you) for your wonderful suggestions and advice!
I'll update this in a week's time with my progress and let you know how I'm doing sleepwise.
*yawn* I think it's about that time though.
Last night - chronically up at 3am again, though the night before I actually did manage to get my first night of full wonderful sleep in weeks.
This time though I did take notice that there were a lot of things running through my mind before I ultimately drifted off. Mostly to do with the fact that I graduate college today/reflecting on my life up to this point/etc. I think I also might try turning off MSN an hour or so before I sleep instead of just passing out with the computer on beside me. If nothing else it'll save energy. LOL :P <3
Seriously? My maximum is three days, and that was while continuously taking adderall and Red Bull. How in the hell did you pull off six days? I think I might really die if I tried that shit.
It was entirely mental - I simply... didn't sleep. No adderall or Red Bully involved, though I'm sure I drank tea. It was a few years ago. It was my way of coping with certain thoughts - being too tired to think meant I didn't have to deal with what was in my head. I did it a few weeks in a row - not sleeping Monday-Saturday, then crashing for about a day. Not something I would suggest. I didn't hallucinate, though; the effects on me were a bit different.
Whatever it saw seems to have finally passed for me. I've had a few blips here and there, but overall it's been pretty good and last night I managed to sleep from 6-10pm and then again from 12-7am. yay progress!
