    Hello Mike. Going for two days without sleep is hard — but your sleep drive is going to be very high as a result. In other words, sleep is becoming more and more likely.

    So, I think you will likely get a better night of sleep very soon (especially if you avoid compensatory behaviors such as spending too much time in bed or trying to conserve energy during the day).

    To get more consistent sleep, I’d suggest starting with sleep restriction for insomnia — a key component of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I).

    I hope this helps.

    Yeah I think the best thing to do is to just realize eventually you will have to sleep. Insomnia has never killed anybody, you will pass out before then.

    If it’s causing problems at your work you should speak up to people you trust and say any mistakes that you might make are because you’ve been having a lot of issues sleeping. I know here at my work when I’ve done that it’s been received very well by the team. There are tons of studies that show your brain and body compensate for lack of sleep and that performance isn’t affected much at all.

    I would just say keep the mantra “I will black out eventually” in your mind and you should be good.
