Elvis Presley's ex Linda Thompson on why she really left him: 'It was EXHAUSTING' 1

“Once I realised that Elvis took sleep medication and sometimes some other things that maybe interacted with that, I was like having a newborn baby,” she said. “I wouldn’t sleep. I wanted to know he was okay.

“So, I would sit and watch him until he fell asleep. Then I would get up all through the night and had a pattern of wakefulness to check on his breathing and make sure he was okay, because sometimes he wasn’t.

“It was exhausting, I have to admit,” she continued. “I was a young girl but it was still exhausting when you’re not sleeping.

“And, also, just emotionally exhausting because this is a person that I loved more than my own life.”
