      Been awake 23 hours (:

      So I am trying to correct my sleeping disorder, for the hundredth time. I woke up at 3pm yesterday, Its 2pm now. I will go to bed at 11pm and hopefully it will build up a beautiful amount of REM rebound for me to indulge in.

      Looke (:

      Planning an animation, every now and again I will kind of "phase out" so to speak :p and get a bit blank. Another weird thing I noticed is if I stare at the ceiling or floor for a few seconds it goes all wavy and wobbly, for a moment I thought I could be dreaming .

      Man, I know exactly what you are going through. lol I actually had the same scenario just yesterday. After 28 hours I finally went to bed and actually had 4 dreams and 2 dream fragments I could remember from that night. (No lucid though)

      Don't forget: The cold, movement and light is good for staying awake. Also keep your brain busy. Good luck, mate.

      Ha this is why I love this forum people get me. haha! (odd occurrence) I should be alright now I am over the 24 hour hump. Once I did 42 hours this had horrible effects on me though. I constantly saw things in my peripheral vision constantly. It was almost as if I was going through a WILD transition awake.

      I am the same, I seem to have major problems getting to bed before like 2 AM or something, and even if I am ready to go to bed much earlier I always find myself "waiting" while doing stuff on the computer or something.
      But sometimes I remember how wonderful it feels when you actually lie in bed ready to sleep reasonably early, and can relax a while.

      It's also a wonderfrul feeling when you set the alarm on your cell-phone and it says "Alarm set for 10+ hours from now", yay tons of sleeping time!

      I used to struggle before 3 am when I was younger now its 6-7 am and I wake at like 2 - 3 pm sometimes later. I went to a sleep clinic and was diagnosed with with Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome. I think this is why I find WILD more productive than other methods because I can hold on to my awareness longer because it takes me 20 - 40 minutes to fall asleep even if I am exhausted.

      I was just thinking about that when you mentioned it. I have that too. Just found out about that term last month but I have DSPS since I can remember.
      Sometimes I'm jealous of my mother who can lay down and literally fall asleep in seconds.
      I still remember the nights back when I was a kid and was supposed to go to sleep at sometime between 6 and 8 pm and were just laying there, thinking about everything for hours, because I wasn't able to sleep at all.

      Well this is my attempts at sorting it out. It works for a short period of time.

      Good Luck! Happy your trying to naturally beat your sleeping troubles, rather than resorting to Xanax and all that good stuff to beat DSPS. Happy Dreaming!
