    It's not a matter of living with it. It's a matter of not being able to live with anything that fixes it.

    As for Valium, I was on Klonopin and Ativan for a long time, but if I take them for anxiety I end up taking more and more of them until taking all of them with a bottle of schnapps seems like a really good idea. The anxiety and the sleeplessness are really the lesser of two evils here.

    Maybe I'm too sensitive to phrases that incluude the word neck - like redneck. There is indeed a camp Leatherneck where many of our troops live.

    Serious, I just have a feeling that yoga might be helpful to you. It might be very helpful.

    yeah. 70-something hours (completely hallucinating at that point). no red bull, just adrenaline, anger, and hate.

    Yeah, there is. But the reason I said I wasn't military is because I have absolutely no idea why you're talking about Camp Leatherneck.

    I'm confused myself. Somebody listed "Camp Leatherneck" as their location on profile and that's who I thought I was replying to. And then I couldn't find anybody on the thread who listed that. They're shipping my new brain via UPS so it ought to get here lickity split.

    Has it arrived?

    I sent a pair of baby shoes out on Monday and it arrived today - anything's possible.

    But whne things come into Arkansas then it hits a blackhole of a time warp and will spend no less than 15 years in a storage facility. (this really happened, btw - maybe 15 or 20 years ago)

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Re: Longest Time Period you have gone without Sleep

    When I was younger, I used to go 3-4 days without sleep but I prepared myself (lots of sleep beforehand) and let myself collapse afterwards (slept for 18-20 hours). I'd go to a convention, be up early Thursday and not get any sleep until probably Monday morning sometime, living on lots of caffeine and adrenaline.

    Of course, that's when I was younger, today there's no way I could do that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    People have survived longer. Not much longer, mind you, but longer. The record for acute sleep deprivation without the use of stimulants is 264 hours, and there have been recorded cases involving methamphetamine in which people have been awake for 15 days.

    That's quite interesting. And I tend to believe a person has gone that long without sleep. I think sleep disorders can happen with no drugs involved and no clear reason why.

    One thing we haven't talked about, I don;t think, is the hallucinations and disorders the person goes through.
