Re: It IS about Quality of Life

Many thanks to you all. I do definitely make it a habit never to mention internet to anyone with whom I'm hoping to have an intelligent conversation.

Re: It IS about Quality of Life

Oh Ann, I managed to get some sleep and then I thought I would check to see if anyone would have soldiered hrough all of my stuff. Isn't it just the picture of how desperate folks can be, awake in the middle of the night with RLS, and willing to read things like what I waxed poetic on and on and on ...

Re: tv & radio to sleep?

I put a CD of KJV on and it occupies my brain so deeply that even if I end up with an episode I still find refreshment and rest of a sort.
