 That's good!!! They have been over stimulated and need to rest.....so let them rest, and maybe with any luck the rest of your body will follow suit!!!
 Sweet dreams...

I appear to have caught insomnia from a transvestite sheep!

Let that be a warning to anyone who chats to the sheep... beware the venom is double-strength extra long-lasting caffeine!!  ;D

A lot of lavender around at the moment in the UK. Experimenting with placing it under pillow in a cloth bag. The scent is thought to aid sleep.

Will let you know the outcome.

I'd be more than happy to Neil but only if you repay the favour by knocking me out!! ;o)

Sounds like your still having rough nights...im still going through my ups and down but learning to live with it...best thing sometimes is to accept it even though it aint easy!!....would be good to catch up with u sometimes.....

Hi guys,

Wanted some advice...which sleeping pills would you recommend taking to give you sleep quickly without the hangover effects the next day?

I've struggled for a good 7 years with my sleeping and have tried loads of things, including coming on here to have a whinge every so often... i've also tried various pills none of which ive found effective...ive not tried any benzo's yet but hoping to get prescribed it next time i see the Doc...so which one would you recommend?...never really wantd to go down the drugs route but desperate times.....
