    Thanks everyone! I got little sleep last night, 10 hours in the office today, and I AM going to have some milk with 100% cacao (no sugar) before bed. I keep forgetting to pick up that homeopathic...so we will see.

    Cacao has caffeine, doesn't it? Chocolate does anyway...not sure how much in the amount you would have had, but I wouldn't drink it before bedtime.

    Hope you slept!

    Also theobromine, which is another stimulant ...

    Anyway, hope you got some sleep. Try to take care of yourself when you go to visit your mom ... hope it goes well.

    I actually slept better than I had in a very long time. Also slept well last night on the couch at my sister's house. Go figure, it isn't an easy visit at all but am sleeping fine so far!

    Maybe it's being with your sister, Catrin.

    Rescue Remedy (a Bach Flower Essence available at health food type stores and even on Amazon) works very well for me when my insomnia is stress-related, with zero hangover the next day. You can also use it during the day for acute times of stress. The drops do have some alcohol in them, though. The pastilles might be alcohol-free.

    I've also had success with Valerian capsules (no way can I imagine drinking that stinky stuff in a tea!) and no hangover from those, either.

    Good luck with everything, take good care of yourself.

    Re: Ahhhhh to sleep...

    I am sleeping much better, only waking 1 or 2 times in the night. I will see what it is like when I return home and back to work. I also am moving in less than 2 weeks...will likely pick up one of the suggested homeopathics and keep it around for a time.

    Re: Ahhhhh to sleep...

    I really appreciated the helpful comments here. My sleeping problem, after lasting for months, just seems to have left when my mom passed It is a little harder to get to sleep but now only my bladder wakes me. The stress of moving in 5 days hardly registers after all that but I am still numb I think.
