I don't do well with this type of thing so I have a tendency to avoid it, I am sorry to hear about what happened to you.

babetoo, I just read this thread and am sorry for the tragic loss of your husband and all that ensued afterwards. I am sorry that it still seems like yesterday; you no doubt have had to relive it over numerous times after.

Lady Cook, if you are menopausal it might be that you can't sleep because your hormones aren't balanced. Insomnia is very common among menopausal women. If this is the case, I wouldn't recommend Rx hormones. They could prove dangerous over time because they rearrange the molecular structure of the herbs that are bio-identical to your own natural hormones in order to get a patent. (Natural substances can't be patented.) However, a good quality bio-identical hormone could do the trick. If you think this might be the reason why you aren't sleeping then send me a PM and I will give you the phone number where I order mine from. I am leary to purchase in the store, even health food store, because I don't know the quality of the product.
