    I did 17 days once when I was 23. I don't recommend it, it really screws your mind up.

    I've stain awake for 2 days or so once, dead tired afterwards. Though there already is a topic like this in Polls.

    Also, might I ask why you capitalise every word?

    I can't get to sleep then I basically pass out due to the lack of sleep. I go to bed and just lay and stare at the wall for hours on end trying to fall asleep and it doesn't happen. You constantly feel like shit due to the lack of sleep but no matter what I do I can't seem to sleep. The odd occasion where I do get a good sleep it feels great. I'm glad once I'm able to sleep I don't wake up for ages or I would be even more fucked.

    Unfortunately, I have fatal insomnia, if it gets any worse, I'll have to go to sleep labs :/
    It takes about 3 to 4 Tylenol PMs to get me to sleep and that's only for 6 hours.
