"Go To Sleep" is a song from the film On A Clear Day You Can See Forever. I've heard that song since I was a kid, and I still can't GO TO SLEEP. (What I loved about that scene is Barbra Strisand is singing and her mind is answering back, and her mind is in a mirror image of her bedroom in different colors. Green, if I'm not mistaken. It's been a couple of years since I've seen the film.)
I don't usually sing when I can't sleep, which is just about every night. It would wake up Mr. L and whatever cats happen to be in the bed at the time.
Kate swears by liquid melatonin. I tried it, but it left such a terrible after-taste that I stopped using it. (I should send her the bottle.) I'm back to tablet melatonin--the max recommended, and taking half before I go to bed, and half several hours later.
I need some sleep. Anybody else got a home remedy I can try? (And thank you.)
