    You could die, or you could simply lose your mind. I think going without sleep for too long will make you insane. I have no idea why people *want* to do this.

    Yeah, probably. I was having some pretty serious hallucinations on the third day (to the point where I no longer felt safe driving), so I imagine it would be THAT much worse after six days.

    My ex used to say that that was what was really wrong with tweakers, it wasn't just that they did crystal meth, it was that they didn't sleep.

    They seem to be some of the most insane people alive.

    Although, on the other hand, they could just have holes in their brain from melted carpet.

    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.

    Goodnight Typology Central <3
    Sweet dreams.

    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

    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.

    the bodies internal clock is so amazing, how accurate it can be... that combined with the power of suggestion can be tricky to overcome.

    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!
