  •  "getting out of the bait???" (4.00)
    How did "habit" turn into "bait?"

    I don't even want to contemplate what 49 hours without sleep has done to my synapses. Thank christ I don't have to DRIVE anywhere today.

    •  What's up with dat? (4.00)
      I once went 5 days without sleep, without any intent or "aid" or change in behavior.

      Just couldn't go to sleep, and I didn't want to take a sleeping pill.

      And I found after the first couple days, I was getting increasingly hyper- I would even talk faster.  I started thinking "what if I never go to sleep again.."

      It was the damnest thing - the only thing I could think of, was that somehow, for what ever reason, I my body was releasing non-euphoric Adrenaline, but I could figure out why.

      •  That might not have been hyperactivity (4.00)
        Loss of sleep for extended periods of time can lead to a manic episode and/or psychosis.

        One of the most important things for bipolar folks is a regular sleep schedule.  On top of the mood stabilizing meds, that is.
