  oral Coffee
  3 mg oral Melatonin

I went to the coffee shop one evening. I decided to get a coffee drink even though it was late and I knew I would want to sleep soon. I had 2 shots of espresso. A few hours later I tried to go to bed, but couldnt. So I took 3 mg of melatonin.

When I tried to go back asleep I had the most amazing expierence. I entered into a dream-like state, but I was alert the whole time. I was dreaming, but I had total control. I could dream myself anywhere or have conversations with anyone. I saw beautiful waterfalls and went into space. If I wanted to open my eyes and become alert to the real world I could at any time.

I woke up the next morning rested and happy and went to work. I wasn't tired despite NEVER actually falling asleep all night.
