You mention "The No-Cry Sleep Solution". I'm wondering if you've read this passage......
"He awakes in a mindless terror of the silence, the motionless. He screams. He is afire from head to foot, wit
h want, wit
h desire, wit
h intolerable impatience. He gasps for breath and screams until his head if filled and throbbing wit
h the sound. He screams until his chest aches, his throat is sore.
