My granddad has real trouble with sleeping at night. He will not sleep, constantly turning lights on and off, on and off. He also opens doors and starts talking loudly to the people sleeping inside. My gran can't sleep, which makes her even grumpier and less tolerable in the day. She is already a very easily stressed person and this is driving her mad!
