    What's the longest you've been without sleep?

    I've been awake for about 24 hours right now. I think I'll lay down awhile....

    48 Hours once started seeing weird things like floating pinesol and my friend grew a beard and stuff really creepy the most weird one was I closed my eyes and there was a mermaid with a dancing tounge and im not even joking.It was at an overnight field trip.Weird because you expect to be tired but in the morning at about 24 hours I was so hyper.Also 72 hours without sleep and you can legally kill a person so if you plan to commit murder just dont sleep.

    I once went 48 hours without sleep when I went abroad, I started to go psychotic. I was so tired I couldn't even fall asleep. I couldn't see properly, I couldn't talk properly, I couldn't walk and I didn't know who anyone was. When I took some sleeping tablets I slept for about 16 hours. I woke up so refreshed.

    I recently went about 38 hours without sleep on a trip to France.

    One full day at work (9-5) > Drive home > Go out for meal > Pick up sister from train station > Drive home > Wait a couple hours (tried to sleep but failed) > start driving to Dover at 12am (approx 160 miles) > Ferry from Dover to Calais > Drive from Calais to Disneyland > Spend day at Disneyland > Drive from Disneyland to Paris > Try and find apartment and attempt to sleep (couldn't until about 1:30am)

    [​IMG] That was a very tiring day.

    My insomnia is so bad I'm awake for a day then I'll get three hours of sleep(not intentional) before I'm awake another day.

    72 hours in a teenaged programming marathon. It wasn't exactly deliberate, but it wasn't insomnia. I just lost track of time a few nights and then it was noon and who goes to sleep at noon? [​IMG]

    When I started to hallucinate, though, that meant it was bedtime.

    Longest I've been is till about past 2:00am. I never suffer from insomnia and find it hard to stay awake when I'm sleepy.

    The longest I've been awake is past 6.
    I couldn't put myself to sleep so I ended up watching television until 6:15.

    Longest I've been awake without sleep was about 36 hours while on a trip. Slept like a rock when I finally did lie down.

    I got sinuses that kept me up one day during school. Laid in bed for 6.5 hours and was like, "Whyyyyyyy"

    I was up for maybe 30 hours straight until I finished classes. I couldn't fall asleep in the classes, but everything was so trippy. I wasn't hallucinating. But I sure enough wasn't sane.

    Went to bed and slept for like, 14 hours.

    End.

    When I was younger I was regularly awake for ~5-6 days without sleep. As I get older it gets shorter, but I still often go 3 or more days without sleeping. When I do sleep it is rarely for more than an hour or two, unless I use pharmaceuticals to put me out.

    I've gone a few days without sleep just due to stress, but nothing horrible
