'I’m not a good sleeper — never have been. When some people proudly exclaim that they fall asleep like a baby every night and wake up the next day as if nothing happened, I sneer at them. “Pff… I’m so flexible I can go into a lotus position without using my arms. I can even do it under water!” (Which happens to be true).
Of course, I’m jealous of those lucky folks with perfect sleep.
When I was a child, I had nightmares, experienced sleep paralysis (which scared the hell out of me), and sleepwalked.
In my teens, I couldn’t get out of bed.
I’ve always had some kind of recurring trouble with insomnia.'
