When I was younger and working graveyard, my friend and I got off at eight on Friday morning, and went to San Diego.They have a big Navy Base there, where we met some guys. We stayed up all weekend. We went back home Sunday night, just in time for work. I went to work, but Debbie didn't. I stayed awake until Monday afternoon. It's the first and only time I had hallucinations. Lol.

We were having fun with the guys, so at the time it didn't seem bad. Once I got to work, it was horrible. I never had hallucinations in my life, but that night I did. Our boss knew that Debbie and I were going to San Diego together, so we both couldn't call in. Debbie did, so I had to go to work. It was hard. Lol.

I really don't know. I have a hard time with staying awake sometimes or sleep. Though this week I have been waking up before my alarm & going to bed way later than I should be, so I am dragging.

going to/from Japan last summer, I had to be awake for a lot longer than I am used to.  I know if I am up longer than usual I tend to get brain fog!!

I've been up for more than 24hours before due to insomnia. I hate it I get really loopy (well loopier than usual) and head-achy.

Not sure. At 50 it was two weeks with less than 8 hours of sleep total.

I used to be able to be up all night and go to work the next morning.  I am old now and have a problem staying up much past 10 pm.

I am not sure. When I have had to stay awake for long periods it was not under very good circumstances so I don't really remember. A long time....if need be.

I pretty much stayed awake for 27 hours when we flew to Thailand.  So 27 hours it is.
