FUNNY Sleeping Pill incident!

Anyone else act really weird after taking a sleeping pill, and not getting to sleep right away? Well when I take them and don't go straight to bed I usually start acting really weird and high. Well I've been sick lately, so I did go right to bed after taking one yesterday. But i woke up a couple hours after falling asleep (i sleep during the day/work at night) and I thought my bed was moving! And by moving I mean it was like flimsy playdo and was flappin all over the place. So i called my mom to tell her to come look at it =P (I was not scared, but amused). I also thought a cuple stuff animals I have next to my bed were moving too! LOL. And I started to TALK to them!!! I even talked to the giant tiger I use as a pillow. They never talked back, but that doesn't make talking to them anyless crazy =P I finally fell back asleep, and when I woke up I thought it was a dream, so I ignored it. Then later that night my mom asked me why I had called her. I was thinking, "OH CRAP IT WAS REAL!" lol. So I told her the whole story, and she laughed at me and told me I'm not allowed to take those sleeping pills anymore =P

I agree with your Mom, get off those pills. I never had pills that bothered me early, but later, yes. My Doctor gave me a sleeping pill and the next day, I drove to work, I woke up in time to swurve and avoid a guard rail. I don't remember getting ready for work, getting in the car, etc. So I stopped taking them. I wasn't sleeping because of arthritis, a friend of mine told me to take over the counter stuff, it was tylenol plus sleeping stuff. If I took it 10 hours before I needed to get up the next day, I wasn't sleepy. But that prescribed stuff is deadly. TC
