Dreams


The drug in question on my messy desktop.
I've had this post percolating in the back o' my mind for some time now but haven't done anythang with it until now.  Just to set the stage... it came to pass about four months ago that I was having trouble falling asleep in the evenings (or early mornings, you choose), unless my Ol' Ass was parked in front o' the teevee, at which time sleep came all TOO easily.  I'd retire to my bedchambers, turn out the lights and toss and turn for what seemed like hours before sleep came.  So I decided to purchase what you see above: a potion called "Sleep," by an outfit called NatureMade.  The "all-natural" bits consist primarily o' melatonin and L-theanine and the good news is the stuff seems to work.  I've been taking one of these pills before bedtime for about four months now and have no trouble falling asleep any longer.

But the better news is my dreams have become a LOT more interesting and vivid (but NOT vivid like this).  I'm 99.4% certain the pills are the cause o' this phenomenon and I'm also 99.4% certain my better dreams are the reason I'm still taking this stuff.  Hell, my dreams are like an E-ticket ride at Disneyland these days and I'm not gonna give up "Sleep" anytime soon.

So what prompted this?  Well, I read this post by that other Old AF Sarge today.  My dreams are pretty good, but I can't hold a candle to his.  Mebbe I'll up my dosage.

  2. It is good to know there is something that works for sleepless nights. My dreams are crazy enough, though.

  3. I, too, once had difficulty going to and remaining asleep.
    I will refrain from passing along the solution because no matter how I tell it, it will sound like a lecture.

    1. This trouble I had recently was the first time in life, ever. I used to brag about being to sleep anywhere, any time, as one of the best things the AF taught me.

  4. I can only take sleep aids for a short period then they stop working. I am a vivid dreamer most of the time and certainly don't want to take anything that may...enhance them.

    1. I hardly ever remember my dreams, until lately. There's that, which is an additional good thing.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
