Bloo Monday
Hello All,

Trust you all had a whooping of a week end. Nothing is wrong with me, but i feel lethargic, and anxious for this year to end. Almost like a nervous energy. Weird i know.... i also feel kinda tense inside, almost like i've committed a crime during my sleep and am only aware of it in my subconcious. But i haven't - just trying to explain my feelings today. I know im probably not making any sense. Forgive me.

I'm reading every one's postings today but feel helpless. Like what i say wont be good enough. Or like the advice i would be giving i dont necessarilly even like myself. Cant put my finger on it.

I had a good week end. Very relaxing blah blah blah. Relationship, work, life hasn't changed it is still great. But why do i feel like this. Can i blame it on the weather or the fact that while every body is on holiday i am still at work?? Hmmmm, some one/some thing must be to blame... hee hee!!

Also, my b/f suffers from Insomnia. Can any one recommend a good sleeping tablet, but one that wont be making him drowsy in the morning?

Thanks,

PARIS

Blue Mondays, are rather a well-known affliction ! Especially if one had a whooping good weenend !
As for sleeping. One thing that surprusingly enough usually makes sleep irresistable, is deliberately trying to stay awake ! Bananas and mild DO help, chemically ( serotonin and stuff). The Nitol type of over-the-counter stuff tends to often produce a hangover the next morning. On prescription the best would be a short-term use of something needing a prescription, like Silnox (Zolpidem) or a generic version of it ) which is designed to metabolize and disappear before morning, so -- no hangovers.
