How long can you stay awake?!?

I feel like this is the evil little game I am in right now lol. I have been awake now for about 50 hours d/t working 32 of those hours and the other 16 hours doing stuff with my son. Now I am off for the next 8 hours (which due to my sons tball game and husband at work I won't get any sleep either) and then go back in for 12 hours. That will make 82 hours this week and anything I work over 30 hours is over time since I am part time and normal only work 12-24 hours a week. I am exhausted and living in coffee but that paycheck will be so worth it!!!

No idea never had to. Sleep is pretty important for a lot of reasons so I make it a priority. I think the least amt ive gottwn was 4-5 hrs.right after babies were born and when dd had hand foot and mouth disease

Uhhh...wouldn't you rather be alive to see that paycheck?

Without having to force myself to actually stay awake for anything special I start to poop out somewhere around the 14-15th hour or so.

Girl, seriously...go to fucking sleep.

These days I can only manage about 36 hours at a time but back in college I could do three days or so during finals. Ah, youth, lol. I hope you get some rest soon, though. Sleep debt is a nasty thing.

IF I had to I could go 3-4 days without sleeping. I only sleep 3 to 4 (tops) hours in a 24 hour period anyway.

Yes I want to be alive but I have a lot of medical bills from last month since I had 2 unplanned surgeries. (2 D&C s since they didnt get everything the first time)

  Ehhh I would rather have a little overtime than too much.   They will take obscene amounts out in taxes.

I am not youth lol. I remember in college when partying was more important than sleep and I would go 3-4 days without sleep, 1 night of sleep then do another 3-4 days without sleep and not blink a eye at it. Now I feel like I am going to die when I am done with this stretch lol.
