Insomnia, man, what am I going to do about this…? I never had insomnia till I started studying hard, and then drinking more frequently at night while I was studying for my Master’s degree (drinking at the conclusion of studying, of course, not during). Prior to that, I always slept like a rock.
Then I quit drinking, and developed insomnia on steroids. It makes me think that I haven’t really been going to sleep most of the time for the last few years, but instead actually passing out. Now I have to learn how to go to sleep again. This is, apparently, too complex a concept for my big brain to handle.
