I stayed awake all last night and feel crazy (disoriented, forgetful, unfocused, anxious). Even one night of sleep deprivation can cause your judgement to become clouded and cause your emotions to go haywire.
Being deprived of sleep even for one night makes the brain unstable and prone to sudden shutdowns akin to a power failure - brief lapses that hover between sleep and wakefulness, according to researchers.
