One time when I was a little kid, I thought I stayed awake for 2 weeks. I think i just couldnt get to sleep and only slept for a little while and didn't remember falling asleep so I think the longest I have stayed awake is 2 days sleep

For winter finals last year I pulled two back-to-back all nighters. The longest I've gone without sleep though is just a little over 72 hrs.

It's such a miserable feeling after the day I finally sleep again.

Wow...I need to try not sleeping some time. I've had periods of very little sleep, but there's always been some litte nap in between the hours.

I think 22 hours is my real record. Travelling home from an island in Croatia by taxi, boat and airplane. smile I set my contacts-record as well, 16 hours with dailies.

Actually i just remembered that when i went to the Philippines winter of '05, I had teh opposite of jet lag. By that i mean that instead of being relly sleepy, i was wide awake and couldn't get to sleep ( didn't really want to though ) for like 2-3 days making my total awake time about 36-86. Probably about 70 hours.

NOWHERE near 264 hours though. overspannen

Hey you guys are pretty close to my record... stayed up over 72 hours before...

I don't recommend it - You can die from sleep deprivation.

A friend told me he stayed awake for an entire week once. On the final day he made himself a bowl of rice for energy... only when he looked at the bowl of rice, each grain was moving around the bowl like worms... oh dear sadblauw

In the Randy Gardner link it says "On the eleventh day, when he was asked to subtract seven repeatedly, starting with 100, he stopped at 65. When asked why he had stopped, he replied that he had forgotten what he was doing."

- This happens to me on a regular basis, lol ... help! cry

Hahaha, this is some funny stuff! I think staying up is fun, but it's also just like a drug.

Drug=fun=bad things to tee batee.

Anyways my record is from 6 am one morning past 6 am the next and 6 am the next then I slept at 2pm that night so that's...

6am to 6am to 6 am 48 then to 2pm so plus 8, 56 hours!!!

Yea I can barely remember that cuz it was like a year ago. I can remember being woozy, and seeing things I don't think were real. Oh, and things were different shades of the real color. And when I went outside it felt as though I was looking through lightly tinted green glass.



Current LD goal(s): I want to get better DR and have LDs again..it's been so long!

I used to stay up because I was an insomniac. I didn't like sleep, didn't want sleep, didn't want anything to do with sleep. I liked the switch of mental states after being awake for a few days as well.

... and dogs yelling at you too ? O_o That must be a sooo weird feeling. I never had non-dreamish hallucinations, but it must be a weird feeling. Record for me is about of 40 hours few years ago. I got a horrible nightmare (which I can't recall now), and I got really scared. I wanted not to fall asleep again. Next night I was not wanting to fall asleep, and I did not done so tounge2

EDIT: no, I got one, when I also was ill tounge2 I came to school, there was a trip to a cinema, and I was staning during road in bus. When I came over, I felt really weak, and few seconds after it, I started to see everything in yellow O.O "wow.. it must be some kind of joke done to me, every building was repainted to yellow... there will be TV in a sec, with flowers like in that show... wait.. eek2"

I've stayed up for 57h. Those were the last 3 days of my student exchange year in the US and the flight home. I was partying two nights in a row and couldn't sleep during the day cuz I was too excited. When I was back home I went to bed without a word and slept for 16h. I think my parents were worried.
