    from ourselves

    Is the following wording acceptable?
    The third way welooked sleeping problems from ourselves. We used the information which we surfed on the Internet or the messagewhich teachers taught us to prove that information is true or not reallycorrect.

    It sounds to me like a machine translation. The first sentence is incomprehensible.

    Ashiuhto, you will notice that when you copy and paste certain texts, words often get joined together — like 'sleepingproblems' above.

    After posting, please get into the habit of checking the text and using the Edit Post button to add spaces where necessary.
