    I've been awake for upwards of 40 hours, minus a brief 2 hour nap yesterday morning.

    Feel absolutely wasted but i still couldn't sleep last night despite numerous efforts, and i'm supposed to be going to cable tonight.


    It's starting to take its toll for sure, i can't eat properly, what would normally be relatively simple tasks are taking much more brainpower and time than they should and I've got the shakes like michael j fox (although i think thats just the nicotine withdrawal mixed with large amounts of caffeine)

    I'm no starnger to a bit of sleep dep, but 40 hours without the aid of illegal drugs is a new one.

    ive been up for almost 55 hours once. i think you should just lie down and watch a really boring documentary on youtube. maybe ancient aliens. that shit always makes me go to sleep

    make a thread about it.
    ask people that dont respect you very much for advise.
    thats probably your best option for some impartial advise.

    ^^ LOL

    seriously go for a run or do something physical mate, bet you've not done any of that in a while.

    you need to put your body to the point where it over comes the mental side and just gets some kip in

    but naturally i'll end up finding it really interesting and wanna watch the whole fucking thing. I've got a few errands to run today anyway, think i'll just get into town asap, do my shit, come back knackered out, and sleep through until i need to start getting ready for laandaaan.

    Also, it seems to be affecting the way i perceive taste, decided to cook up some pasta, (gorgonzola and walnut filled tortellini) which 2 days again i thought was delicious, this morning it was gut wrenchingly disgusting.

    I dunno if it's just a placebo or what but sometimes if I'm having trouble sleeping I found them Nytol Herbal tables helped. Also because they are herbal you don't wake up feeling like a zombie!

    this is all nonsense. get comfy in your bed with said documentary on, drink plenty of whiskey and beer, pop a few valium. youll be out cold in a minute.

    Valium is your friend arkmefg. Two or three of those bad boys will take you down. Either that or try killing yourself that usually works for me.
