Definitely Too Old For This...

This is definitely the worst case of insomnia, ever. I haven't slept in two days. TWO. DAYS.
I am an emotional, completely irrational basket case. I took some herbal sleep aid that I had (which contains Valerian), but it didn't work. Valerian never works for me by itself, but I hoped that it would help when mixed with other things. But, no. I bought a box of Calms Forte today, which does not contain Valerian. So, hopefully that will work. I am wary of using the heavy duty stuff... I do have to be functional in the morning. But if this doesn't work, so help me God, I'm going to need to be committed.

Oh my! This is not good.

Passionflower? Hops? Valerian makes me more wired.

Are you eating green vegetables? The more green you can eat, the more you'll relax and slip easier into sleep.

So the reason for the green vegetables is to get easily-assimilated magnesium and calcium in the right ratio. There is powdered stuff at NS called Calm that works pretty well, too.
