Don’t you just hate those freezing cold nights when you wear your warmest flannel pajamas and thickest socks and hurry into bed but are still surprised by the smack of cold that comes off the sheets, so you pull the blankets up to your chin, even that one at the foot of the bed—you yank that up too...

Sleep deprivation caused me to have a car wreck, so I studied it. Here are my findings. Do not take all of the supplements in combination. Use your head; experiment. For my purposes, 5HTP, GABA/B6 and melatonin are enough. But sometimes I'll lay off everything for a few days to see if I need...

The Vicar of Dibley!! Okay, well maybe it's not the main reason, but it's right up there with all the important ones!! On a serious note... the thing I find most miraculous on any given day is if I can manage to sleep through the night without lurching awake with attacks of overwhelming anxiety...
