    I have been awake for 72 hours now, my brain will just not let me sleep, i really do want to be able to sleep, i have reverted to some bad habbits to
    try to be un aware, but they no longer work, i do have cat naps, but even they are getting less frequent, doctors are less than helpfull prescribing drugs, that work for a while but leave one feeling drained, is there a method
    to regain sleep?

    You could watch a movie called "Bowling for Columbine" or better yet "Farenheit 911". I gaurantee you that if you try to watch either of those it'll konk you right out.

    I guess he's sleeping. 72 hours is very unhealthy.
