That's understandable. If you don't sleep you get tired and can't think straight. Do that too often and your brain doesn't work properly.

53 hrs is my longest stay awake, then I got scared in case when I did sleep I wouldn't wake up, but I can't recollect it did any harm, and we all survived.

Lack of sleep is how we got high when we were kids.

^ Haha, that seems true. That explains my poor short-term memory too. I myself believe lack of sleep generally isn't good for us.

There was an article I read a while ago that some think it's one way the brain rids itself of toxins. The author is James Gallagher, and it was BBC. I thought it was an interesting read. (I don't know how to post links yet :/) There have been times when I've sworn I've done something, and my husband swears it just didn't happen, and vice versa. And I have sleep issues. I do think lack of sleep can play with your memory.
