    I'm not well. I have manic episodes with uncontrollable anxiety and paranoia. They're still trying to find something that helps, but I've reacted very badly to most of the medicines they've tried.

    Probably 60 something hours. . . I had to complete a chainmaille project.

    Prick only paid me 1/10 the original agreed-on pay.

    One of my longer records was when I had to be tested for sleep Apnea. I couldn't sleep wearing the monitor, I tried 3 nights in a row.

    Although I stay up for 30-50 hours regularly during certain parts of a quarter, depending on workload (writing for and doing layout on a news paper, being a full-time student and a freelance writer along with a relationship doesn't leave much time for sleep).

    Ask me after my day of classes today. I haven't slept in ages.

    Do you do those any more and if so, are you interested in selling some? PM me.

    Oh man! I think lack of sleep can cause problem memory loss. I seriously would get an Rx for Restoril and use it to make you sleep. It's not something to push.

    Is there really a Camp Leatherneck? I would guess soldiering is the worst job for getting sleep. But that's not good for your health. Hope you are home soon.

    So you've tried Xanax I suppose. Valium? Don't live with it. Insist on getting fixed.

    Re: Longest Time Period you have gone without Sleep

    3.33 days (80 hours to be exact) when my first child was born. woke up one morning and my wife went into labor late that night so we went to the hospital. We were sent home around 3:30am (still in labor, but they said it'd take awhile) so we went home and she couldn't sleep due to labor pains. I stayed with her of course. Went back around 5:00pm the next day - baby was delivered 2:00am. Wife had complications and went into surgery - so I of course still didn't sleep (how could I?) and she came out of it just fine. She got some sleep that morning, but we had visitors in the hospital which I entertained (they actually came into the room JUST as I was setting down for sleep!) That night our new-born just would not sleep. So I took her out of the room so my wife could sleep and I spent that night awake in the visitor's room trying to sooth our baby. It wasn't until the next afternoon that I got a quick 4 hours of sleep...

    It was all worth it. If my wife can go through 9 months of pregnancy and 2 days of labor, I think I ought to put up with 80 hours of no sleep without complaint.

    Nope - sure don't. Not that I don't love it or do it sometimes on my downtime - it's just so time consuming. But plenty of other people do!

    The Ring Lord Chainmail Chain Mail Maille Supplies is a great hub for maillers - lots of sellers at the forum and John (head of the company) makes maille for movies and businesses on a professional scale. Ess in Chains is great and so is Enchantress - fabulous work. As well as Silverweaver (.com) - all three of these people have crafted and sold my designs at some point in the past - some might still do so. I think Emerald Dragon, SacredChao and Triskillion make some fab work, too.

    There's also www.mailleartians.org is a good connection spot, too.
