I finally decided to get my prescription for Ambien and filled because I am seriousy lacking sleep. I took the pill about two hours before my bedtime so that it would be in my system. I wanted to avoid oversleeping for work the next morning. I thought nothing of taking it early.
I was talking to a friend on the phone and I told her I had taken a pill. She seemed shocked that I had not passed out. I felt fine. I didn’t even feel sleepy. She urged me to get in my pj’s and to get into bed because she said the medicine worked quickly.
Well, about twenty minutes later I started feeling weird. I told Nicholas I was going to go rest and reminded him to be in the bed at 9:30pm. I don’t remember anything else.
The next morning on our drive to school I asked Nicholas if he went to bed on time. He sounded puzzled as he replied, “You tucked me in. Well, you tried to but you fell on me.” I was surprised because I didn’t remember doing that. He said that I got up when he came to tell me goodnight. I asked him how I got back into bed. He said he walked me back to my room and said I fell again but he managed to get me back in the bed.
How scary! Anything could have happened. I’m glad I didn’t hit my head on something! Needless to say, I didn’t take one last night! Maybe I will try warm milk or Sleepytime tea tonight.
