Sleeping is one of the basic necessities of man. It is a way to recharge our energy for a new day. However, there are times that we need to stay awake for straight days in order to finish a project, paper, work, or whatever. The question is for how long have you stayed awake? Mine is two straight days. And my head really ached a lot by then.:)

mine also is two days straight. It happened when I need to take double shift here at work and it is a very unsusual feeling.. I hate the feeling that I sweat too much and I feel cold when I did not took a sleep.. when I got home and I wanted to sleeo, my child wont let me too. As a single parent, I am the only parent that my child could have so I still need to fulfill my obligations to him. It is really not a good feeling...

I haven't reall thought about this ever, it's just if I feel like staying awake I would just stay awake and try not to fall asleep. However, sleep is a measure problem for me because I get tired very quickly after having been over 18 hours awake, for example I'm not the kind of guy that can wake up early in the morning and party all night with his friends, I generally go home pretty early. The worst thing that can happen to me is fall asleep whilst driving home, just like what happend to my father... Normally, when I stay awake for a long time, I won't be able to wake up for work the next day because I will be so tired, that my alarm can keep ringing and I still won't get up. That's how bad it is for me.

For me it would be probably a day in a half the most that I have gone without sleep. Its a terrible feeling when your body is going thru lack of sleep. Then when you end up going to bed you find yourself very restless and can't always fall asleep right away. I think you end up damaging your body in some way or other.
