I'm a night owl, I'm usually in bed around 5am, up around noon. Yesterday I got up at noon and moved to the couch...and promptly fell asleep till 7pm. That's 14 freaking hours, and now it's 5am and I'm nowhere near ready to sleep.

I've never slept 14 hours before, and now I feel all fucked up. Probably just gonna stay up the rest of the day to 'reset'.

I was definitely out of it though.

I got a virus very similar to impetigo but slightly more severe after a two week holiday in cuba. My doctor hadnt seen it before and wasnt sure what the diagnosis was. I was so itchy and uncomfortable I couldnt sleep for 36 hours. Doctor gave me a tranquilliser and some strong antibiotics targeted at skin virus. Then I slept for about 29 hours.

Didnt have an appetite for 3 days. Never been so hungry and dehydrated in all my life. Didnt fully appreciate just how satisfying water could be until I went without it for so long.

I've only slept like 4 hours a night my whole life until last August, when the doc put me on some hypnotics (it wasn't that I wasn't tired, my mind just wouldn't shift into sleep mode). It's hard to shake the sleep when I wake up so I usually get moving and doing some work, but yesterday I made the mistake of landing on the couch straight from the bed. So I know how that drug-induced sleep is.

You mean the two nights before...

Can't talk about that stuff here though. Suffice to say I was having a good time.

14 or so hours. Not solid sleep, I get up to pee every 2-4 hours without fail. But I was exhausted from a weird work schedule (up at 6 am one day, working until 10 pm the next day, etc) so I really needed it. I rarely sleep that much, I survive on barely any if I have to.

A week and a half, after being up for 19 days.

Like 24 hours. Nothing weirder than waking disoriented and realizing that you skipped a full day.

I used to sleep for 10 hours when I was little. Now, I kinda sleep for six to seven hours mostly.

I once stayed up for a little over 2 days straight.

After that, I slept a good 16 hours or so.

About 20 hours after arriving in the Philippines. It was my first time travelling half way around the world, plus my body hates jet lag in general.

19 hours.

I had no antidepressants and part of the withdraws made me oversleep. I would be up for like 3-4 hours and fall back to bed for another 10-15 hours, but eventually reached 19.

About 16 hours when I took more than the recommended amount of sleeping pills. Without pills, I slept 13 hours once (and hadn't even been doing anything the day I did that).

The longest I've slept is the same as you! 14 hours. It was strange too because I wasn't drug, on drugs or anything of that nature, and I wasn't overtired from work or anything. I just felt like sleeping that day for some odd reason, haha. But yeah, 14 hours. It's crazy.

49 hours. I have a sleeping disorder that has been present since birth pretty much. There are times when I can easily stay up for two or three days or longer. My cousin challenged me to see who couls tay up the longest. I lasted the longest staying up for 7 days. He crashed about 6 1/2 in. :P That was when I was younger though. I don't do silly stuff like that now.

But every once and awhile a game can keep me up for a few days, or if I get really interested in something.

Though I literally hate sleeping at night, so idk what to do about it.
This might surprise people, but some times, I'll sleep for 20 hours straight.

got a pretty wrecked sleeping pattern in general (as in a coupple of days with Little to no sleep, and then pretty much most of a day sleeping).

Longest must have been a bit over 24 hours, after an insanely hard work week where we were required to be on standby for 72 hours, we did get sleep here and there, when there was an oppatunity, but when I came home I slept like I was dead. I might have been up to take a leak on occation, but if I were I can not even remember doing so :\

Is that even possible for a healthy person to sleep more than 24 hours?!

A week, but that was with the aid of heavy narcotics that I'd been RxD. Only time I got up was to take pills, go the the bathroom, eat a small bite and feed my cat. But I was in bed for literally a week.

Not sure.

A little over a half a day or so, when I'm sick.
