i haven't slept but i feel GREAT i am hyper and happy! i love it. also they've up my meds cause they aren't working so they keep increasing it. then after we find the right dose of lithium then i get more meds 0.0 lol. its kinda crazy really. i hope that i see my psych soon, last time i was they we were talking about my depression and he helped me figure out that i wasnt rational. i kept teling myself i had no friends and everyone hates me. and he said he was glad i knew it was wrong =] anyway id love to hear from other people since i was diagnosed with BP i feel alienated

I managed 3 days without sleeping before. Times like that I do like bipolar but the crashes afterwards aren't worth it =/

I am not BP but I've certainly been familiar with not sleeping...

6 days straight is my record but well nothing enviable when you just can't sleep even if you try...

Thankfully we have computers, TV, books etc to keep us distracted, doing something when we can't sleep or don't want to sleep... Just sucks when you get to the 3rd day have to go to work/school and then suddenly a switch is pulled and you feel sleepy like a normal person.

I remember at my worse I went like 2 days with no sleep, i'd be running around the house and doing so much work for school even though I wasnt even going! I just did it. I was so happy and my thoughts were racing, but the psychosis that came with it was terrible.. and the depression after that lasted like a month was horrible..
