If I get less than 8 hours of sleep each night I'm very tired and worn out the next day. Sometimes I may even get sick.[:@]
I'm the same way, I have to get my 8 hours of rest per day. I have gotten sick also not getting the 8 hours.
I dose off at 1am and get up at 10am. So yeah many times I felt sick working third shift.[]

I often cant sleep for more than 4-5 hours a night if that. Thats usually why I'm on here so late. I think my record for no sleep is 3 1/2 days. My body was tired but my mind wasn't.

Almost a week. This was due to massive anxiety when my mom had cancer. Ironically I too ended up in the hospital when I passed out there from lack of sleep.

ThunderbirdJunkie has gone four days without sleep.

He had a sweet schedule. 4 days on, 3 days off, 3 days on, 4 days off.

He has slept for 2 days straight before. Waking up to a peeved girlfriend. You wake up after that kind of powernap, and say "ThunderbirdJunkie is hungry" and she is not happy.

I stayed up 48 hours one summer a long time ago. I was trying to see how long I could go. I was looking at the clock just so I would be sure it was official. As soon as I passed the 48 hour mark, I went to sleep in the next 5 seconds. I haven't made another attempt to beat it in a long time. It's really uncomfortable being that tired.

Quite a few years ago I was working for a large retail store and got sent out of state on a remodeling crew. Some bozo put an ad in the local paper about a grand re-opening... with the wrong date! The grand opening according to the newspaper ad was 4 days before we were told we were supposed to be done. So everyone worked 2 days straight. I did a 41 hour shift. Only got a $500 bonus. 4 weeks later the chain of stores sold to Kroeger and the one I worked at was closed so I was out of a job.

Anyone as old as me and lived in the SW USA might remember Gemco. I'll never forget them! And if anyone asks me to do anything like that again, I will bust a gut laughing at them.

For me? About 3 or 4 days of no sleep, sleep deprivation exercise as part of an extended field exercise in the military. I honestly cannot remember how many days I really was sleep deprived, the brain functions are seriously compromised after abuot 36hrs of sleep deprivation.

This is how rediculous 3 or more days of sleep deprivation becomes: On the third day, we began to hallucinate. I remember walking into a tree, and thinking it was another soldier in my way, I yelled at teh tree and told it to get out of teh way. A buddy of mine sat staring at a rock and said something to about looking at a dog.

I've made it 4 1/2 maybe 5 days before...stopped keeping track after awhile. 2 or 3 days of no sleep was common for me up until recently. I worked over 3 years of straight night shift. 11pm-7am. Then I'd get off work and watch my kid all day while my wife was at work. If I was lucky I'd get 3 or 4 hours after she got home. I love working nightshift, if you can train you're body to be happy with 4 or 5 hours of sleep every couple of days its like having everyday off. Work all night then do whatever you want during the day.

I could not do that. I would only take night shift if I had no children, so I can get enough rest to do a good job when I am at work
