Summary: Sleep never came easily.

Sleep never came easily. She always tossed and turned and lay in bed, staring up at the ceiling for what felt like hours. After facing a day packed with the usual chaos Atlantis brought, one would expect to fall asleep immediately, the exhaustion taking claim of one’s body. Rather, the nightmares took control.

She just couldn’t sleep without them hovering over her head like a dark cloud and eventually she’d end up walking down to the cafeteria or her office or the infirmary where she’d converse with those unlucky enough to land the night shift. Sometimes she’d take some sleeping pills, but only as a last resort.

Sleeping peacefully was almost impossible and at night, she yearned for nothing more than to make it through to the next day.
