I've had problems with sleeping all of my life. When I was younger I had 'night terrors' where I would run around screaming, but I was actually asleep. I get plenty of exercise everyday, but I've just got this genetic sleep problem (my father has it too).
So, I was prescribed ambien for ten days (expensive stuff, costs 50 bucks for 10 pills, luckily our insurance covered half). I took one last night...
For one, I dont' know that 'sleeping medication' is the right term. At first, I felt really good actually. My body felt kind of light, almost like I was drunk. But then, it didn't just put me to sleep, it was more like a drug induced coma.
Then the worst part of it, I had absolutely the SCARIEST nightmares I've ever had in my whole life. It was extremely vivid and I remember them with utmos clarity what went on. I was chasing somebody through a big ass field surrounded by a fence. The person I was chasing climbed over the fence. When I tried to do the same a pack of huge dogs came out and started chasing me. They finally caught me, and literally started tearing me to pieces. I remember laying in the middle of the field mortally wounded, trying to crawl away, and the dogs killed me...isn't it bad luck or something to witness yourself being killed in a dream? Does it count if you're on medication?
Ambien is (not) @\/\/350/\/\3!
