Good morning:

Due to a severe medical crisis in my family back in 96, I went Three (3) full days with-out any sleep. I was fine, or so I thought, until I sat down and closed my eyes. After which, no one saw or heard from me for Two (2) days.

I have gone well over 40 hours with no sleep. Of course that was in the late 60's.
A different time and a different place. LMAO.

Are you sure that you didn't just perceive time differently?

I had a correct perception of the time. It was everything else that was perceived a little differently. LOL. Rich R.

Finally! Someone found that extra hour in the day I'd been missing!
Seriously, this is not a good thing, for all that we may joke about it. Use your imaginations for just a second, and try living in a couple of the scenarios put forth by the article. Better yet, imagine a hostile nation, or let's not even go that far, a hostile person getting their hands on this stuff. Ever hear the phrase "You gotta sleep sometime" uttered? Bet ya Lorena Bobbit (does anyone else find that name ironic?) was muttering it under her breath!

I think it's insane to stay awake for that long. I wonder though if you could take it and still sleep? I wrote down the company name and the drugs name to do some research. Lorri, thanks for the e-mail.

Kato~~~fan of Lorri's now too.
