I’m nine years old, and I can never sleep! A couple of nights ago, I didn’t fall asleep until 5:00 a.m.! I don’t know whether to go to a doctor or not.
You must be pretty sleepy during the day! Sleeplessness can have a variety of causes, including taking certain medications or drinking caffeine-containing beverages, anxiety, depression, and some medical conditions in which nighttime symptoms prevent you from going to sleep. I suggest that you see your pediatrician: she can help you find out why you are not sleeping and get you sleeping again!
