Hello, good night.

“To die, to sleep – to sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub, for in this sleep of death what dreams may come…”

William Shakespeare, Hamlet

You may be familiar with the above quote, or more so with the same dread Hamlet faced. Hamlet, deeply affected by the murder of his father, suffered from severe melancholic depression and profound terminal insomnia. Today we understand that sleep disturbances can occur in the absence of mental illness, but also cause or be a consequence of mental or physical illness.
