When you close your eyes to fall asleep, there still are a few minutes when you’re conscious.

I’m conscious of the fan whirring and as I start hitting that sweet point where I’d be close to losing this consciousness, I’d hear a sound.

I have trouble sleeping.

It can be the sound of anything. Since I sleep alone, it apparently it imaginary, my hearing sounds when there are none. But it sure does feel as real as it can.

A few minutes ago, I imagined I heard my brother call my name. Startled I woke up from my trance like state and went to check on him. He’s okay.

I guess I’m not.

Has it ever happened to you? It happens to me almost every time I close my eyes to sleep.
