Hi Karen, thanks for responding.
We are Brits who live in Bulgaria, but we have been in Canada for 3 months for the birth of our grandaughter. We have been staying with our daughter and hubby in a small apartment on the top floor of the building.
When I wake I have a feeling of entrapment and this gives me a bit of a panic attack because as well as a small apartment, outside is -20 and deep snow...so there is no escape!
Maybe thats the root cause...I've tried a slug of Jack Daniels before bed but I think that it may make it worse!
John, I use a crystal under my pillow, for those nights, well most nights. Go with whatever you are drawn too. A glass of wine or a cocktail couldn't hurt also. Chamomile tea helps here too.
Thanks Linda...the glass of wine sounds tempting!
Thanks Karen.I'll give those a try starting with the hot cocoa drink, lavender and 'natural sounds' recordings.
Hi Karen, we've finally got home to Bulgaria so now I should now not have and phobic feelings of entrapment...we shall see...the next thing to get over is the time difference! In Brandon Manitoba where we were staying its only 3 pm, but here in Bulgaria it's 10pm, so not feeling particularly sleepy!
I'm interested in the stones you mentioned...where can I get them from?
Once more, thanks for your advice and thanks for caring enough to reply.
amazon, ebay can help . http://www.misticaluna.com/

A different president?
Try rubbing Lavender oil on your temples and use a sleep mask.
Works a charm :)
