When you're really, really sleepy and you're far away from home, and you know there's no place to sleep in, how do you deal with it?

I dont know if i could deal with it, i would probably leave and go home, i have no staying power whatsoever and i am the worlds worst when i am tired! I couldnt continue what i was doing and i'd probably end up falling asleep stood up! :)

I am the type of person who could function with just a few hours of sleep. So getting really sleepy during the day never happens to me. But in case I will be in the situation that you gave, I will probably just look for a coffee shop or any store that sells instant coffee and drink lots and lots of hot coffee.

I guess I would do that too! Three cups, one after the other... my gosh that would probably keep me up the rest of the day! thanks for the response!

I'm stupid enough, I'd probably try to stoke myself up on caffeine and drive home. Most likely resulting in wrapping myself around a tree. Though if all else fails, cars can be fairly comfy to sleep in. Don't just pull off at the edge of the road though; do it someplace safer, like a parking lot or rest area.

As I have no problem sleeping almost anywhere as long as there is a reasonable mattress and pillows to sleep on, I don't have any trouble with that. Try to program your mind not to react to a new sorrounding or environment -- surely if ypu think more on this you will really loss a good amount of sleep. Take a good sleeping tea or anything that could induce you to sleep well. Have a nice sleeping, my dear.

When I don't get enough sleep at night I usually try do things to keep myself busy so that by the time I finally look at a clock it is almost time to go to bed again.
