  • 53 1/2 hours. :-)
    I worked 3rd shift and we were moving. I couldn't get off work either night and we had to get our stuff in the new place. I didn't sleep for so long, I ended up falling asleep at work, just standing at the register. Someone woke me up and told me I may want to put the pile of money people were leaving away. :-)
    It was in a factory, I was working in the cafeteria collecting the money. Some very honest people there!

  • 3 days. It was in my young teenage years where we thought it'd be funny to stay up all night... for 3 days. Haha.
    If I tried that now, I'd probably take a nap involuntarily. Something about having babies and being a mom makes you go comatose mid day...

  • When my dad was going through all types of surgeries, I was the one who had to take my mom back and forth to the hospital to see him. I remember only getting like 6 hours of sleep a day. It was exhausting, but thankfully now he is much better.

  • Long story, but I once went about 5 days without sleep. I was 17. It was awful; by them time I got to the end of it, I felt like I was on drugs, I was having hallucinations and hearing things. When I finally crashed into bed, I slept almost 24 hours. I have never done anything like that again.

  • I used to stay up for close to 2 days with only 2-3 hours of sleep on my own-but I was young then ;)
    the longest I ever stayed up was about 3 wasn't pretty and it wasn't without help if you know what I mean...
    did that ONCE NEVER again.
    now- being awake for even 20 hours is pushing it!
