    ...actually I think the longest I have managed

    to stay up was about 2 hours. I was knackered afterwards, but it was well worthwhile..!

    I don't do it often,

    I used to regularly ( PRE-medication ) stay up

    for 72 hours at a shot ( then sleep 8 then be up another 72 ( till my body just kicked out ), I am so GRATEFUL for my medication that has me on a regular schedule, that has me in bed by 10:00 or shortly after )
