Sleep Dep Thread!
« on: March 15, 2007, 07:35:35 am »
Ok any insomniacs or just plain insane people (both in my case)

if you are ever over 24 hours without sleep, come here

and i know how it's quite easy to get a little insane after little sleep for a few days

Lack of sleep may result in

    * Aching muscles
    * ADHD like symptoms
    * Blurred vision
    * Clinical depression
    * Color blindness
    * Daytime Naps
    * Decreased mental activity
    * Decreased concentration
    * Decreased ability for the immune system to fight off sickness
    * Dizziness
    * Fainting
    * General confusion
    * Hallucinations
    * Hand tremors
    * Headache
    * Hernia
    * Hypertension/Hyperactivity
    * Impatience
    * Irritability
    * Memory lapses / memory loss
    * Nausea
    * Nystagmus (rapid involuntary rhythmic eye movement)
    * Psychosis
    * Pale skin tone (looking pasty)
    * Slowed reaction time
    * Slurred speech
    * Weight gain
    * Yawning

Personally i get: Blurred Vision, Dizziness, Hallucinations, Psychosis and err Memory lapses / memory loss

psychosis is the most fun, i just go insane and do dumb stuff, much worse than if i'm drunk, so if anyone else gets this (psychosis) post stuff you have done, it's hilarious and i don't feel so weird for posting this thread

i will post pics later O.o
But if one day we meet together while I'm drunk, I promise you to draw a big group sex picture including a lot of forumites. :D

Well... I've done my time being awake for sure. Just having one week of night shifts where I generally sleep 6 hours at most per day. Sometimes, like today, only couple of hours (I'm changing my internal rhythm back to normal).

I've not slept really well for about 1,5 years now for various reasons (either me, my wife or my boy having pains, being sick etc...). There has been short periods (from 3-10 days) where I've managed to sleep 7-9 hours per night but those are rare. Mostly they are single nights every now and then. I've noticed that my memory has reduced some, worst period being last autumn where I had hard time remembering anything. But let's check the symptom list for starters :

These I have had occasionally:

    * Aching muscles
    * Daytime Naps
    * Decreased concentration
    * Decreased ability for the immune system to fight off sickness
    * Dizziness
    * Irritability
    * Memory lapses / memory loss
    * Nystagmus (rapid involuntary rhythmic eye movement)
    * Slowed reaction time
    * Slurred speech
    * Weight gain
    * Yawning

Sometimes I've fallen asleep while sitting. I must point out that I don't have insomnia where one is not sleepy but rather I'm kept awake by outer factors (or pain/sickness) and family's needs. Sometimes whole idea of going to sleep gets me anxious because I know that I'm not allowed to sleep but only 1-2 hours before I have to wake up for a short moment (to comfort crying son or to walk because of pains oslt).

I'm really waiting and hoping for a longer period where I could rest well, things look brighter now and maybe I could

sleep


Which reminds me of Paranomia of Art of Noise... Fun song...

"Now I know I'm dreaming
dreaming dreaming dreaming dreaming dreaming.
hmmm. How do I get to sllllleeep
I know, I'll count those bars on the window.
1 - 2 - 3 sleep."

no sleep dep for me... eve online just went offline..

i recently stayed up all night... it wasn't bad. i was just a little more tired than usual the next day. the awesome part was that night, i actually fucking slept, like, i was unconscious and like, asleep, and then i woke up and was like... less tired! it was amazing. i think i should just only sleep every other night cause having every other day be zonky would be better than having every day be groggy like usual.

- Extreme hunger.
- Repetetiveness (I do the same things over and over again, checking forums, devart, myspace, every 5minutes)
- Lack of.. making.. sense.
- Easily bothered by small things
- Small bouts of energy (if a decent song comes on I'll suddenly get a rush of energy and become happy, but when it ends i'll be tired again)

I get pretty much all of the above without insomnia.

But yeah.. I once heard someone suggesting staying away from computers (*shuns*) for a while might help insomnia. Sounds logical.
