My budgie died

I don't know what to think as I type this. I am heartbroken. My sweet budgie Leo died tonight--he was only 2 years and 7 months old. The worst part is that it was my fault. My sleep schedule has been horribly messed up, so lately, I would stay up all night. Even if I covered his cage, Leo would have to deal with my noise all night. I think it simply exhausted him. I started noticing symptoms of mites, and then today, he suddenly seemed very ill: he was constantly fluffed up and sitting in the corner of the cage; he couldn't open his eyes for more than a second and often kept them squeezed shut; I tried to let him fly, but the poor little guy could barely make it back to his cage. I think the worst part was that he hadn't chirped all day today. I was extremely worried, and I planned on taking him to the vet tomorrow after school to make sure he got better. I woke up in the middle of the night tonight and wanted to check on him, but it was too late. I just can't stop picturing his tiny little body at the bottom of the cage, his neck all screwed up. It makes me sick to think if I had just taken him to the vet last night, he might still be here. I am disgusted with myself. I failed myself, and I failed Leo. I just don't know what to do anymore.
