    Do you find yourself wanting to eat and eat for no reason at all because of your lack of sleep . . .

    Not trying to be funny here, but I believe I've heard that psychosis could come about as early as 72 hours without sleep. That's of course why sleep deprivation is one of the chief methodologies used in interrogation/torture type settings.

    All that said I don't think you have to worry about any permanent/irreversible type damage to yourself (or your brain) (or psychosis for that matter!)

    But I would say after reading this thread, and maybe visiting a good insomnia prevention tips type website, get off of the computer. There's an overwhelming amount of evidence about the stimuli, the light, I think even some blue light by certain devices that impacts your brain).

    It makes sense that as your work schedule might have changed, your body clock's been thrown off. It's almost like you've gone through jet lag without traveling in a sense.

    Beyond all the other great advice you'll find, one thing I try to do is just tell myself it doesn't matter if I get to sleep, just lying down and resting will be beneficial to the body (which it will, but more importantly, if you REALLY buy into this it will allow you to relax enough not to be so anxious and...I wont say it, but it will happen).

    Sorry, I know this advice is hard to buy into after three sleepless nights. If nothing else, hope my long boring wordy post has at least made you drowsy!

    If all else fails, tune into a replay of howard stern show.

    Crap, now that you've clarified, it's not insomnia, it's that you have to work.

    Oh well...
