Thanks Karen. I managed about 2 hours.  The weather here hasn't been too bad, it's been in the 90's (f) or around 32(c).  With hurricane season around the corner, we're starting to get some nasty storms.  I wish it would storm now, I might be able to sleep.

Storming like crazy puts me too sleep really nicely the louder the better! rain hail wind ... I love it...Its soothing!

Sounds like some odd wether.. I agree with you...

Get some rest anyway and I hope you start feeling better soon!

I love sleeping during a storm....it's like a lullaby.

 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!!!

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.

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.....
