YAY congrats Bekah!! I shall go see pics.

Olympia, I bought valerian for my dog and when I opened it I was shocked. The smell was just.... overpowering to say the least. He ate them without a problem o-o How can something smell so.... sulphury? hahah Hope it works!

Do you spend a lot of time in your room during the evening? It was said that people who spend a lot of time in their bedrooms or studying/reading/arting in their beds can have sleeping problems. It was true for me when I lived at home and spent a lot of time by myself. Now I sleep a lot better bc my work usually gets done in the living room and I go in the room to sleep and I konk out in no time.

LOL, the dog had 3/4ths of the couch to sit on and she started at the furthest end, nosing the blanket until she ended up plopping right on top of the blanket on my feet/legs :P.. I love that the animals worship me. I really do :P

It says it also helps stomach cramps and pains.. Maybe it'll do something for my IBS (which I think is from stress anyways). Kill 3 birds with one stone much.

Melatonin also helps you sleep. You take it 20 minutes before bedtime. As for stress and anxiety, you might try 5-HTP. It helps stabilize your mood.

That's because you have to be on valerian a while before it takes effect. Valerian is more effective than melatonin. I'm interested that it acts in the GABA pathway, which is connected to the digestive system, so if my IBS is from stress then it should definitely help. Caffeine also acts in the GABA, but not in a good way. So the valerian will probably go to war with the caffeine in me. xD
No I spend most of my day in my basement.

what happened?

------------------
Stupid Petco didn't order in my plecos! I called them Weds to ask if they did, the employee said "Yeah! I put in the order last Friday. Your Colombian Bristlenose will be here Friday." I went, and NO FISH!!! I told the Manager about my incidents and left to bring my money to PetsMart for a rubblerlip pleco.
