Not Sleeping 2011-10-11 18:50:47 Reply

I haven't slept for a good 32 hours. I think my brain melted.

Slowly I began to write later and later until I recently ended up staying up all night, and now I really wish I could freeze time and sleep for as long as I wanted.

I'm going to go take a nap now; feeling the weight of your own body is disconcerting.

Hmm, I probably should add room for relevant discussion:

When were you the most tired?

Well, when I first had sex, I felt like I was gonna pass out, though that's not necessarily tired. First time I smoked a joint, I ate like three bags of chips then fell asleep for what felt like days...turned out be around an hour.

I tend to sleep less around the end of the year. No idea why. The longest I've gone without sleeping was three days. No naps, nothing, just straight awake for 72 hours. I don't know how I survived.

If I don't get 10 hours of sleep, the only thing that will make my day anything but pure shit is an ungodly amount of caffeine.

Alright, well I fell asleep after posting, slept for some 12 hours or so, woke up, and enjoyed my day.

Dunno how I did on the PSAT, though. I'm fairly certain my scores will be better last year.

So how have you been?

Damn, you almost got a million mile stare, bro. Sleep depravation CAN lead to insanity, so try to rest up for your own mental health. Longest I went is 3 days plus a couple of hours before I just collapsed onto my bed in submission.

looks like your face is going to fall off your head.

Once for a engineering dissertation I had a camera set up with a time-lapse to take photos of different types of pykrete melting over 24 hours, this meant I had to keep the light constant for 24 hours so I had to recreate daylight in my bedroom. So ever night I went to bed with huge amounts of light in my room, I did not sleep well that week.

I tend to go to bed at roughtl 6/7am and the wake up at midday, provided I have no prior commitments.

I view sleep as a weakness and waste of time. There's so much I could accomplish or learn about during those precious hours.

I love sleeping, but the most I've slept is 12 hours. I can go into my dream world which is sadly more interesting and fulfilling than the real world.

Pulling an all-nighter (which I'm already terrible at) and then doing a full-blown workout the next day (excuse me, I have a workout to continue).

Sure, I was proud of myself, but I felt like just collapsing to the floor and staying there.

You should probably know whether or not someone removed your kidney. That information may become very useful to you later on in life.

26+ hours. I really wasn't that tired, but I decided I should probably go to sleep anyway.

I thought you left.

And OP, most tired I was ever was staying up for 5 days, just because I knew I could do it.


Yeah, whatever.

I practiced something called polyphasic sleeping at one point, I would continuously sleep deprive myself in an attempt to have extremely powerful/spiritual dreams. It worked. I was up for 72 hours and I had a mind fuck of a dream where I slept for only 20 minutes but it felt like I slept for an entire day, and an entire day I dreamed. When I woke up I felt as if I was coming out of a wormhole, I felt so fucked up, it was incredibly scary. I was on top of a mountain. "Cody, don't become a super famous incredibly rich and powerful DJ who tours the world and throws the biggest shows in the history of the universe" "OK, i'll try? haha" fucked up dream i tell ya. You can never be 100% certain what the point of a dream is. I think it was that the earth is falling apart and maybe we don't need to party more all the time, gets in the way of the true message or something. I don't know. That was 6 years ago so maybe the directive has changed, I am not sure. Fucking inception.

I gave that up because I was worried it was going to kill my gains or at the very least make workouts a chore. Works though, so if you're under pressure then I say go for it.

I was about to make fun of you for having pretty dark circles under your eyes, but then I realized I actually had worse ones myself (well, at least as bad). I suggest you probably try to get a good nap in or maybe wait until night so that your biological clock doesn't get thrown off. I have a brother who stays up all night all the time, but unlike him, he gets the right amount of sleep, because he sleeps in every single day.
