All have noticed that after a night without sleep we feel tired, bad smoke, and we become slow and unproductive. And it is during sleep important roles that renews our mind and our body are carried out. However, millions of people can not enjoy a full day, alert and productive because the previous night failed to fall asleep. Insomnia affects millions of people around the world. In 1959 Peter Tripp, a broadcaster in New York, decided to stay awake all the time that could.
Past four nights without sleep he began to have problems remembering the alphabet, then he began having hallucinations. I saw his shoes filled with cobwebs, vermin on your table work and even a non-existent rabbit in a corner. Your mental concentration was affected and became paranoid, believing that their co-workers as well as the doctors and nurses who watched his State of health conspired to hurt. The interesting thing is that, despite everything, every night Tripp achieved RID during three hours of his paranoia, lack of concentration and hallucinations, to transmit their radio program. During this time Tripp gave the hour, I read commercial, conversed with the public and gave the weather report of apparently normal form. While, as we have seen, in his daily conduct Tripp gave signs of a serious mental disturbance, somehow he could in certain moments overcome time just to fulfill his duty.
Just before the transmission of the last programme made during this period Tripp suffered a panic attack. Believing that the doctor was coming to bury him alive began shouting and assaulting anyone who was found of means. However arrival time on its agenda she calmed down and I can do the same without that none of those who heard him could suspect the condition it was in. After that program Tripp left their marathon and finally retired to sleep.
