22. I don't sleep before someone in my family dies (this started when my Grandmother died when I was young and has been happening ever since). If they die from an illness sometimes I don't sleep for very long periods of time. If it is sudden, I only lose a couple days sleep. I never know who it is - but the moment they die (literally) - I sleep.
