GG, I just had to tell you the melantonin worked! Thank you so much for bringing it to my attention!
Last night I went to bed *and* went to sleep at 11 pm for the first time in months. And I woke up at 8 am feeling like a brand new woman. Slept like the proverbial babe....
I will say that if you decide to try it, please look it up online to see if it it reacts with medicines or medical conditions you have.
I'll be honest, I was desperate enough to try it even though it might have raised my blood sugar. It didn't, checked by testing. And the med I take that it can affect, I'll be having my regular bloodwork shortly so we"ll see.
I figured it was a worthwhile experiment having fought this insomnia for a few years, and I'm tired of fighting if I don't have to.
