Awake for almost 48 hours.....

Hi there guys! Me again.. I haven't sleep lately for about 48 hours now. I just got home from a fiesta in the nearby town. I went to my best friend's house as they are celebrating their annual fiesta of St. Francis de Asisi in their town. We have morning the night like other teens and singles do. Been a lot of crazy stuff that night and we've been drinking about 3 cases of beer, just the two of us. The next morning I still have to report to the office at 10. I not getting any sleep even just a minute, but I didn't feel sleepy or something. I even have date and got home about 3AM. I feel all the energy of my body is working when I don't get any sleep and its controlling my stamina, I'm not even exhausted. Can you do it too? Will you survive 48 hours without sleeping at all? Or you get exhausted or sleepy?

My sister had explained this a phenomena before. it was like she was working on grave yard shift and we were discussing the awake moments of her shift and the drowsy moments etc. We figure it out that there is a time where you are so sleepy but when you did not sleep on this time, it will pass by and you will be awake again as if it is another day. it was like 11 PM to 2 AM to her. when 2 AM pass by and she is still awake and energetic, expect it that she will be hyper the rest of the day. as for me, nah, I am too sleepy most of the time. the longest hour I was awake was 20 hours.

Exactly the same thing happened to me. The adrenalin rush is working inside my body. I don't know where I get all this energy. Well, its just the first time I noticed it with my body, I'll expect more of it this days as there so many upcoming fiestas I get to visit this days.

Wow, I have not been up for such a long time. I am not sure if I could stand that:) And if I could I would be probably very sleepy. But maybe you are not because you are among a lot of people and still doing something. once you will stop, you will probably start to feel tired if not you are not human!:)) My record to be awake is about 24 hours. Once I went to a party and returned about 6 a.m. and got to go to work within 2 hours. So I went to bed for thous 2 hours, when I woke up I was so tired. After I got to work I had to take vacation I was unable to stand that:))

I'm not even exhausted. I got home 6AM after the fiesta. When I got home, I have to get water in the well as power is short in my place. When clock ticks 9 AM, I set off for the office. At 7 PM I have to meet my date. I'm surprised I don't even feel sleepy, instead I feel the normal way.
