How many hours can YOU stay awake? Watch
At the height of my insomnia and anxiety problems, the longest I stayed awake for was over three days with no sleep, I think all in all it was nearly 80 hours. I eventually collapsed due to exhaustion and then slept for a full 22 hours, and I was fine. Towards the last few hours before collapsing, it was not pleasant at all, I started getting paranoid and shaky and mildly unbalanced. Felt great once I'd slept though .
It's strange when I do all nighters, I can work through the night, and provided I have a flask of coffee and I'm well fed I can manage the rest of the school day fine, then I take a nap when I get in, and then sleep the night, and then my patterns just seem to go back to normal. Weird.
Ok, it was a school day, so I would have woken up around 7am. I then stayed up all night, went to school the next day, then stayed up until around 2am the next day... so over 40 hours. I was cracking a cipher.
I think it was something like 59 hours...
For the past four days I have had only 6 hours sleep...
I feel like I don't exist, all floaty and empty... It's kinda cool.
I've never stayed up all night to do work. The longest I've been without sleep is probably about 30 hours, and all those times have been at parties, by the time I get home I usually collapse in bed and sleep for a few hours then I'm ok again. I am so grouchy without sleep
The Swan - Yes/No - I don't care which... Please don't tease me...
Relatively low compared to others
