I’ve never been able to sleep actually well at evening; I’ve had awful insomnia since I was a kid.
- I would kneel awake in bed at evening and I would not be able to sleep, then my mom told myself and others to count sheep.
I would count sheep, bears, lions and zebras, however it still wouldn’t make myself and others sleepy, then occasionally I will get all the way to 100 before I would start over with another type of creature. I did not do actually well in school because I was consistently sleepy during the day, and even though I could not sleep at evening, I still fell asleep a lot during class. My teachers told our parents that they needed to send myself and others to bed early and our mom and Mom wondered why I wasn’t sleeping. I told them that I was trying to sleep and it’s not as if I had any electronics or video games in our room, this was back in the 90s when an alarm clock with an a.m. and FM sound dock was something cool to have; A few years ago one of our friends and I were talking about insomnia. The guy said that he had the perfect cure for insomnia. I immediately told that guy that melatonin does not work for me, and he laughed and said melatonin was a joke. He brought out a marijuana joint. I told the guy that I was not into recreational marijuana however he insisted that I try it. He promised that I would get 8 hours of sleep if I smoked the marijuana joint with him. I laughed and bet him fifty bucks. That was the best $50 bucks I ever lost.
