I spend a lot of time reading stories online, not just fanfic but I also really enjoy the subreddits of r/nosleep and r/letsnotmeet, and I thought I’d share some of my faves…

The Spire In The Woods


I’m a Search and Rescue Officer in the US Forest Service

Mayhem Mountain


The ‘Penpal’ series

The Whistlers


The Soul Game

The Smiling Man

Dr Ramsey

Violin Hill

So I looked online about how best to survive the day after a night without sleep, and here’s what’s recommended:

  • foods high in protein and low in carbohydrates
  • caffeine every few hours
  • a nap of either less than 30 minutes OR a nap of 1 hour and 30 minutes
  • a bright light source, preferably natural
  • at least an extra 90 minutes of sleep when you do finally go to bed to compensate

I couldn’t sleep again last night and I thought this information might be useful to others
