I was afraid to sleep when I was a child. I would lay on my face with my knees up under me and listen to the horrible arguing from below. I was in constant fear that one of the monsters would come and carry me into the debacle below.
Many times I would fall asleep during school.I was one of those gifted children that did well in school no matter what. I loved school because it was safe there.
Now that I am older I sleep well. My husband is always right there next to me and I know he would protect me from any harm. I can now say that I am rested.
Was there ever a time that I was young and rested?
