Default haven't slept in two night

Anxiety free! the cure has been found. Have you ever stayed up a couple nights? It's fun, unless something bad happend like a breakup or something and you can't sleep. I feel like I could stand up for myself if I needed to. Awesome. When I finally sleep again i'll go back to my normal self. Well the main "normal self" of being nervous and so on. It's like being on a silly sugar high so it's not something that can be done a lot . Anyway share your stories of staying up whether negative or positive.

haha, the longest I've ever been up was 103 hours, which is 4.5ish days. i was backpacking with nowhere to sleep, so i just stayed up. it was interesting, after 60 or so hours, you don't even feel tired, you get into a weird trance and your mind begins to seem clear, but i think its just stopped working lol. but whatever, i like the feeling of staying up long and then just crashing, its great haha

I usually do that when I don't want the next day to come. So for me the effect is the contrary, well, I don't feel more anxious really, but my mind is racing up quickly. Like tonight, I'm avoiding going to bed because tomorrow I have to go to the university to register the classes for the new semester. I don't want to go because I'll be surrounded by a bunch of people but eventually, tomorrow will come and there's nothing I can do about it. :-/

103 hours! Mate, that is a crazy amount of time. I don't know how you did that, backpacking or not.

I think the longest I've stayed awake was about 38 or so hours, and I was half-dead by that point. I could never do two days like HermitCrab or this 103 hours like you! I guess I'm not tough.

I've always found that the less sleep I get, the more wobbly and anxious I am.

‘Nietzsche says there are two kinds of people in the world. People who are destined for greatness, like Walt Disney and Hitler and then there’s the rest of us. He called us, ‘the bungled and the botched.’ We get teased we sometimes get close to greatness, but we never get there. We’re the expendable masses. We get pushed in front of trains, take poison aspirin and get gunned down in Dairy Queens.’

Usually when I lack sleep it is because my anxious thoughts will not let me.

People are like birds they try to hide their pain

This morning I noticed a wildflower, and my thoughts were lost in its colour and form, and the darkness lifted.

And you finally found all your courage to let it all go.

Me too. I get more vulnerable of negative feelings. So I´d rather not stay up 2 days. 1 night is okay, if I can sleep till the noon.

The backpacking thing with crashing seems nice though. I know that I would be less stressed if I go backpacking somewhere, because I´m on holiday and I know I don´t have anything next day, just relax! Then I can stay up maybe 130 hours too hahah, I wouldn´t mind then cuz it´s fun!

Especially when it's in the mountains, a forest or nearby the beach.. Then I wouldn't mind because It's quiet and peaceful. I wouldn't wanna miss a second so i would stay up all night watching the stars and sitting at the beach or hearing the forest rain..

If I´d have to go college next day, I will be freaking out because I don´t want to be tired and less concentrated and MORE anxious at school, that´s why I go to bed around 9:30 PM - 10:00 PM in the mid weeks....

when you stay away from certain things, your brain confirms that its something to fear, so face your fears, so your subconcious mind gets used to it

Yeah, I think that's why I like camping so much

I think you're experiencing a bit of madness, haha. When I pull an all nighter, I turn a little crazy too, go on a coffee binge and have nervous energy. But it's not healthy. I always find I crash later in the day and so does my mood. It's not good to be around people in that state. We need to sleep and dream to process our thoughts.

My problem is that I am nocturnal and when I have a normal sleeping rythm I turn incredibly unhappy and fatigued because of some delayed sleeping syndrome and my mind being in a higher state of operating at night. It seems when I stay up late and get out of bed late I feel better, normal and calm. Still, I wish I would just be able to rise freshly at 7 am with a good mood, full of energy, to take on the day.
