I take Sonata to help me sleep sometimes.  It makes me hallucinate.  If I don’t get right into bed I’ll start laughing hysterically at how the walls are melting.  When I am in my bed with my eyes closed, I “see” random images roll around out of nowhere.  Last night I had a cycle of swirling, luminscent colors containing stuff like a pair of scissors, cream puffs, a roller skate, some pretzels, a donkey…

It’s wild.  I’m not complaining.  I hear Ambien does crazy shit, too.  My grandmother took it once and my mom found her under her bed.  When asked what she was doing, she replied, “fixing my bicycle”.
