Sleep, how long have you gone without it? and what caused it?Untill the other night, foe well over a week I've had very little, because of the weather here.It's been raining badly for well over a week,and the state of my home I do not know whst's going to leak or get damaged in this weather, so I stay up late and when I do get to bed I find if it starts again I wake and cann't get back to sleep, just worried. I finaly had a good nights sleep last night, it was fine. I feel so much better. What affect does loss of sleep had on you?

When I had my second son, he was a really bad sleeper, and i mean really bad, in the worst week I had with him I can remember in 7 days I had had a total of 9 hours sleep! I was a mess, emotionally and mentally, I would spend the days just trying to focus on my jobs and just crying the whole time. My husband worked 12 hours shifts then which included nights and so he helped out when he could but he was limited in what he could do. I will never forget how ill I felt it was awful, I am pleased to say though that 7 years on he sleeps like a log!!

48 hours has been the longest I have gone with out my sleep and that was only cause I was in the Army and on Guard duty I like my sleep so I don't miss it much.

The longest I have been without sleep was three days due to being in Iraq on patrols and being in fire fights. We were worn out to no end. I thank God for adrenaline or some of us may have not of made it through those days.

I have only gone about 2 days without sleep and that was due to a project at work which required completing in a short time frame. If it was just 2 days in a long time, it would have been alright, but it was 2 days without sleep before a short nap of a few hours and then a subsequent 1-2 days without sleep again. This kept going for about 4 cycles and at the end of it all, I had the flu and felt burnt out. There was a lack of energy, unsurprisingly, for the next couple of weeks or so, but that's life!

Oh, sorry about the rain, I've been sitting over here complaining about no rain, and I didn't know you were having too much rain over there! I did have a year once that it rained for a long time! It flooded a lot of people out, and it slowed my construction work down quite a bit also! You're right about losing sleep, when I get something on my mind, I have trouble sleeping also, I guess the worrying makes it hard to get back to sleep! Right now I can go all night without sleep, but the next day, I sure do sleep real well after doing that!

my work makes me do 24 hour shifts so I often go days with little or no sleep. let me tell you it isn't a pretty sight. You actually nod off while writing or doing something. and when I don't sleep I either get very cranky or acr very weird.

When I was in college I went for about 70 hours straight. It was the end of classes and I had about 3 or 4 big papers due that I procastinated on. I had to get them all done. It was the craziest time. I think I was going insane. I could hardly walk. I was losing my abilities to see colors and I think I couldn't see 3D. I remember seeing everything like it was on a black and white flat surface. It is something that I hope I never have to do again. And oh yeah just in case anybody is wondering. I did it without any sort of stay awake pills. Like caffiene or adoral(dont know if I spelled that right or not). It was au natural.
