Title : Insomnia
Writer: Stephen King
Ralph Roberts is an old man who lives in Derry, Maine (USA).
He has a problem : he can\'t sleep. Every morning he keeps waking up earlier; 3:15...3:02...2:45, and he can\'t go back
to sleep once he wakes up. Then he starts to have hallucina-
tions, he can see auras. Since his wife died this problem started. Then he sees that his neighbour, and good friend,
Ed Deepneau, has gone mental and that he beats the hell out
of his wife Helen. Ed keeps telling Ralph that the Krimson
King will destroy the baby-killers and that Ralph shouldn\'t
One night Ralph was sitting in the dark, and suddenly he saw 2 bald doctors with scissors coming up to a neighbours\'house
and they have a golden aura. He saw the two men going inside
and called the police. When the police arrived, it seemed
his neighbour had a hart attack. Later he will understand that awesome and terrifying forces are at work.
He meets the doctors together with Lois (the only other person
besides him and Ed that can see the aura\'s and lift to a
higher level of existence) and they become friends.
The Doctors are simply the bringers of Death and that is
why they carry scissors, to cut the aura\'s and so take life.
they tell Ralph and Lois that the Universe has several levels with Short-Times (humans), Long-Times (higher beings) and
beings that live forever. In the taking of human lives, everone has a destiny, Random Purpose or Higher Purpose.
Ralph and Lois are Higher Purpose because they have a
mission : to stop Ed and Atrophos (another Doctor who takes
life from the Random by first taking an object from that person and then cutting their aura)and the Krimson King
from killing a boy. The boy is the son of Susan Day.
She is a Pro-abortion activist who is going to speak at a
meeting in the Derry hospital.
In the future her boy is going to rescue a very important
First, they went to Atrophos and followed his aura footsteps
descending into the ground, underground compound.
He was not at home. They discovered a huge storage compound where all the items from their victims were stored. But
Atrophos returned home and when they attacked him he did
not tell them anything. Lateron they found out that Ed was
going to make a kamikaze run with a plane on the hospital
where the meeting of Susan is taking place. Ralph slid over
to a higher level (he is invisible then, times go faster
then too, and he can fly). While he is flying up to the
plane, the Krimson King appears in many forms but eventually
Ralph saves the boy.

Mindy WudarskyMindy Wudarsky July 5, 2000 The Physical Self Causes of Higher Depression Rates among Women Depression is an illness that plagues millions of Americans. The depressed person is not only emotionally unwell; he or she also often becomes physically unwell as a result of the depression.

Abortion is a subject of perception; to find a cleAbortion is a subject of perception; to find a clear cut solution would be to commit suicide. Doctors say that candy is not bad, so long as there is not a consumption of it at one time. All things in life must be viewed through a reasonable, clear mind. To say abortion is good or bad is to look at it blindly. Abortion is not like racism or oppression where to look at one incident is to miss the point. Or if we look at the big picture we see the crime, and abuse. Abortion is by far a twentieth ce

There probably was a significant event that he experienced that has either affected him psychologically that he doesn\'t know would affect him, or he has opted to not tell us about it. Either way, his insomnia isn\'t an uncommon thing. Insomnia is a condition in which a person has difficulty getting sufficient sleep. About 30 million people in the U.S.

Responding to StressResponding to Stress Suppose that you are in your car in the middle of a traffic jam heading home from school after a terrible day. You feel frustrated and groan as you think about the calculus midterm you have tomorrow, which you still have to study for. Suddenly, you have to hit the brakes. Your heart starts beating faster and you insult the driver whom nearly made you crash. Are these reactions normal? Indeed they are, since they are merely examples of stress. Many everyday circumstances, suc
Dissociative Identity DisorderDissociative Identity Disorder Max Denis April 28, 2000 From the Diagnosis and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, dissociative identity disorder (DID) is recognized as the presence of two or more distinct identities or personality states that recurrently take control of the behavior. There is an inability to recall important personal information, the extent of which is too great to be explained by ordinary forgetfulness (1994). It is a kind of amnesia that repressed all the traumatic memori
