    I'm Lonely At Night

    ... Unless I drink much wine.

    I do not wish to become dependent on a drug, but I am growing weary of Merlot!

    When Nothing Natural Helps

    I have a terrible time at night.  I am so hypervigilant that even when my dogs snore I wake up.  If they lick their paws I wake up.  If my cat breathes near me I wake up.  When I was married I often slept in the guest bedroom as I couldn't...

    Ive always been a night owl.

    I think it is because I like the privacy I get out of it. Time to think and do whatever I guess. I had to leave the room where my boyfriend is sleeping because it is so tempting to touch and hold him and I know he needs his sleep for work. Boy do I love him :)
