    I went through a phase when my bed was my sworn enemy and trying to sleep in it was a torture to me, as sleep was unobtainable like the droaning noise you get from the telephone when a number has been discontinued.......
    These days I take a tablet before bedtime, something mild and just the thought of it
    releases my tensions, sending me into that world of dreams and slumber.

    Of course, I NEVER snore..because it is so unladylike-just as I never sweat..I glow! ! AND sound like a snuffling pig when I sleep...but I never quote OR misquote Shakespeare! (Report) Reply
