I’m not sure what to say about my sleep patterns except they are erratic.
I have always had issues getting to sleep and staying asleep.
The problem goes back to childhood when I was terrified of Gremlins and post apocalyptic dreams. Unfortunately, these concerns only continue to get more vivid as I get older and the world burns. One of the things that I’ve realized about helping myself to sleep includes maintaining a consistent environment. I like to have a nice cold environment with a lot of background noise. This generally means that I blast my air conditioning system and run a box fan in the background. It helps to keep me ice-cold and to drown out the sounds of my house before they disturb me. I’m a big fan of air conditioning units because they effectively keep me well rested. This is why it became a big problem to go on vacation with my parents last year. We tried to stay in several hotels but kept running into terrible indoor air handling devices. It seemed like there wasn’t a working air conditioning unit wherever we went. When we finally reached our destination and tried out the air conditioning system there… I realized I had the same problem. My room had no AC. In the end, I had no choice but to sleep in the same room as my parents so that I could utilize an air conditioning system. Now, I needed that background noise more than ever to drown out the sounds of my parents as we slept in the same bedroom. Gross.
