kingarthur - 2010-12-24 Yeah, this is going into my personal top five of worst ways to die.
Mother_Puncher - 2010-12-24 Insomnia sucks in general when you get to the point of panic attacks and I'm sure thinking you can die from it wouldn't help. I can't imagine being awake for months at a time but it's pretty terrifying knowing there are people who die from it.
cognitivedissonance - 2010-12-24 I've gotten to the hallucinatory stage, personally. The pictures on the wall started moving like a Harry Potter painting.
Old_Zircon - 2010-12-24 I stayed up for 70 hours once (I can't sleep sitting up, and I was on a long bus/rail trip), and in the last hour before I got home I was actually seeing people walking around in the empty train with me.
Urburos - 2010-12-25 Highway signs getting up on their legs and wobbling as if they were trying to dance on anesthetized legs.
Old_Zircon - 2010-12-24 I remember back in 1998 or so when I used to post on the World Wide Warez Board, there was a thread where two or three different posters claimed to have chronic insomnia and have been awake for 8+ months. It was one of my first experiences of Internet drama.
BorrowedSolution - 2010-12-24 I'm willing to bet they were probably lying. I doubt any of these people could keep up a drama-fest after eight months.
Old_Zircon - 2010-12-24 Oh, I was 100% sure they were lying and I'm even more sure now.
Robert DeNegro - 2010-12-25 This sooooo creeped me out. Five stars for the creeps.
tamago - 2010-12-25 Makes my (annoying but probably harmless) insomnia seem not so bad now.
