For the six years I had known my husband, I had become used to his not sleeping.
- He would go to bed at midnight, and by 2:30 in the morning, he was downstairs working on some project.
He said he would wake up with good ideas and he had to put them on paper or work on them. I told him to just close his eyes and let his mind rest. I almost laughed when he said he had too many voices trying to keep him awake, for his mind to rest, but I knew he was being serious. He told me that ever since he was a kid, the many voices would war with each other in an effort to be heard. He had just grown used to hearing them and he ignored them. When he was sleeping, he wasn’t able to consciously shut them out and he would be unable to sleep. I told all of this to his doctor who responded quickly. His first suggestion was that maybe he needed to go through therapy and see what had happened in the past that would cause this. I wasn’t so sure this was something my husband would do. He told me he could try marijuana. Marijuana may be able to relax his brain and give him some peace. If his mind relaxed, his body would relax and he could finally get some sleep. I talked to my husband and he told me he had self-medicated with marijuana when he was a teenager. He was willing to give medical marijuana a try if the doctor could give him a prescription.
