I'm always amazed at how many people have insomnia issues. Sleep disturbances are very rare for me; always have been. I remember in 7th-8th grade, I had trouble sleeping for several days, once. My mother gave me a half an OTC sleeping pill, and I slept for 2 days straight, missing 1 day of school!!! I'm sure that freaked her out! I couldn't stay upright for long, sitting or standing.
I tried melatonin for a brief period of time many, many years ago. It gave me great nights sleep, but my dreams were so ACTIVE that it was unbelievable! I rolled from one huge dream to the next huge dream to the next huge dream. It was kind of interesting that when I awoke, I was fully rested.
