The longest period of time that I remember being awake without any sleep is for 48 hours when I was a teenager. Now that I am a little bit older, I find that I am lucky to be able to do 24 hours without any sleep. I think that the reason that I need to sleep more now is because of the fact that I have two children to keep up with and that is something that is virtually impossible to do when you haven't had adequate rest.

The longest I can take is 3 days but on the fourth my body completely shuts down. Whereas I remember working over night shift and having small children and one day I was talking and fell asleep while I was talking. Luckily I was home so I came too right away and crawled in bed. Although I had a good night sleep I felt tired for two days there after

The longest one was three days. It was a night job during holidays, like 24 hour job and 2 days at home. But then they asked me step in for a sick person. I drunk so much coffee that couldnt sleep even after i came home. The strange thing is - i didn't keep the job. Just lost interest in it, lol. After that much trouble) It is really hurtful, better we don't do that. Proper sleep is important for a health. 5 days is really to long without sleep, how did you do it? I am sure 3 days is the most my organism can last without sleep and not collapse. You must have be stronger. Have a nice day
