So I went there and I had the most wierdest eerie feeling ever as I met I think, my alternate reality self, basically: What if I was born black? I met someone there with my own name!!!
So we had a funny conversation, the Sleep Technitian on duty and I had a fun time cracking jokes about life, the universe and everything else.
Spent 30 minutes plugging wires into me, more jokes cracked. "oh oh, now you'll find out I'm really a robot..."
Then came the wire test, there was good news (for both of us) "You are really alive! This is good news for me and you, for you because your real and for me as it means I wasn't talking to myself for the last hour" "but then again, you can have really intelligent conversations with jsut yourself" I said.
So wires plugged and went to sleep, woke up about 3 or 4 times, he came in once during the night after I woke to suggest me putting on a high pressure oxygen mask to experiment with my breathing ("for Science!") but there was no way I could fall asleep with that on.
So I was woken up at 6, and went back to school, I should have a response in 2-3 weeks to figure out whats wrong with my sleeping.
Hurray for Science!

I'd like to see you go up against my six-year-old cousin. He boggles our minds (and falls asleep during movies, making it impossible to hear dialog unless the volume is turned WAY up).
At first, I thought you were talking about a dream! Then it clicked.
Speaking of dreams, though, a friend was telling me about one she had two nights in a row in which she dreamt backwards. Apparently, a series of events took place in the dream, and then she dreamt of waking and experiencing those same events in reverse order.

You should go up against my Uncle in snoring. If he falls asleep, you can be on the other side of the house and still need to speak with raised voices to have conversations. (And this was a decent sized house. Not huge, not small.)

The mask will really make a difference in your sleeping ability, once you get used to it. There are several types of masks, and if you're diagnosed with sleep apnea (which it really sounds like you will be), you'll be given several options to choose among. My husband uses the "sleep pillow" mask which fits into his nose. I tried it and couldn't stand it. I use a mask that covers my whole nose. He couldn't stand my type of mask. We both have sleep apnea, and after years of snoring and poor sleep we're both doing much, much better. It did take both of us about a year to really adjust to the masks, though.
