"When we're sleep deprived, it's really as if the brain is reverting to more primitive behavior, regressing in terms of the control humans normally have over their emotions," researcher Matthew Walker, a neuroscientist at the University of California, Berkeley, told LiveScience.

    unless i take an herbal sleeping pill, sleep wouldn't come to me. tried going without the pill for 3 nights, and 3 nights i was deprived of sleep.

    there are times i dread evenings because i know how long it will be again, the pacing back and forth, the anxiousness of wanting to sleep, the things i need to do to keep me occupied rather than have my mind idle...it's too depressing...

    it wasn't like this before...there was never a need for sleep inducers...
  • during my thesis-days.. I can survive three straight days of not sleeping,, When we had our defense, as in wala akong tulog sa sobrang ngarag,, 72 hours akong gising..
    I can't imagine how on earth ko nakayanan un..
    hindi ko rin maisip kung pano ko napagpasensiahan ng hubby ko sa sobrang irritable ko.. as in konting mali.. sumisgaw ako..and super iyakin ko pa..

    true talaga yan.. sleep deprivation does make me crazy..
