    You'd die.

    Fatal familial insomnia is a rare genetic disease that, upon triggering, causes a person to get a progressively worsening state of insomnia. At the onset of symptoms a person has a life expectancy of 18 months, 100% mortality rate, and no cure.

    There are a lot of other health related problems that people contract as a result of lacking proper rest/sleep periods.

    Your body would shut down. Your brain would become foggy and unable to focus. You will become easily annoyed with others and lack patience. Believe me, I know because last year I had severe insomnia. It is not something anyone should experience. Now I get 7-8 hours sleep every night and feel so much better.
