    Default So, I got less than 4 hours of sleep last night.

    What do I do? I guess I can clear out everything I was going to do this weekend for sleep.

    For some reason, my body is refusing it whenever I try to offer. What's wrong with me?

    You have a few options:

    1. Caffeine and other stimulants. Just keep yourself going by ingesting as many stimulants as you can. It's possible to go a few days without sleep, if you really want to do so.

    2. Make more room in your schedule for sleep this weekend. You were thinking of this already, but it's still an option.

    3. Power naps. Try to find 15-minute intervals throughout the weekend where you can sleep, and then do so. Rather than getting your sleep all at once, you'll get just enough to keep you going. This is ideal if you have other people around who can wake you up.

    Anyway, I can tell you why your body is rejecting everything. It's probably related to some kind of illness or stress. Illness is an obvious cause, and I think you would have noticed that. But stress... often you are unaware of stress, and tend to internalize it such that it affects your body. When stress is not dealt with appropriately, emotional/psychological issues can manifest as physical issues, like difficulty in eating or sleeping. Sometimes even pain.

    Providing you can get back on schedule tonight, you can eventually catch up over the wekend and might even feel almost human tomorrow. It might help if you do some vigorous exercise in the evening and skip the caffeine. It works for me.

    What a coincidence.

    Me too about...3 1/2 hours of sleep.

    I am gonna take the first half of the day off and lay down listening to audio books.

    Maybe I didn't have enough caffeine yesterday. Most of the times, caffeine makes me crash without any wakenness. Maybe I've grown so used to the crash that that's how I sleep.

    Me too. I woke up in the middle of the night because I had to use the bathroom and I couldn't get back to sleep. And now I have a headache.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."
