I've been taking prescription strength shit to help me sleep for 5 or 6 years now. It's under control now, but when I first started, I went two weeks without getting more than 45 minutes of sleep every night. It got to the point where I didn't know if I was asleep or awake. I got a script for Xanax and slept for a full 24 hours. Had another episode about a year and a half ago where I went a couple of days without sleeping and eventually passed out in my barber's chair.
