I grew up in a typical suburban home, my parents had decent jobs, and I always had what I needed as a child. I played sports, was gifted in my classes, played video games, and rode bikes with my friends. In middle school, my parents started to notice that my grades were slipping, I wasn’t spending much time with my friends, and I wasn’t going out to exercise very often, so they asked my teachers if my workload increased, which it hadn’t. They assessed my diet to see if I was not reacting well to something I was eating, but they couldn’t figure it out. I was even taken to a doctor to be prescribed adderall to try to get my schoolwork back on track. One night my mother came into my room after I went to bed to put away my laundry and she noticed that I was still awake, and I told her that I couldn’t sleep because it was so hot in my room. She checked the air conditioning vents in my bedroom and noticed that they weren’t cooling like they should have been, so the next day my parents called their HVAC provider to come out and assess the situation. The HVAC technician found the problem, and was able to quickly repair our air conditioner. After his prompt service, I immediately noticed the change in the temperature of my bedroom, and that night I fell asleep without any issues. After our air conditioner was fixed, I was able to sleep soundly every night, and getting a good night’s sleep quickly led to my grades improving, my mood was elevating, and I had the energy to be a kid and play with my friends again.
