It wasn’t until a few years ago that I realized that my bad sleeping patterns were connected to how nighttime was a time of fear and insecurity for me, and it was better for me to be awake than asleep, so I could be on guard. I am not an insomniac by nature (non of us are!). And my lack of sleep created unhealthy conditions that messed with my mind and my mood.
