Dear lovely Georgina, to pray for sleep and it be given, whether the result of prayer, or released emotion enabling your body to relax a little...yes...who knows. In any case showing your feelings often brings out the very best in people who don't know how you struggle on the inside. I am pleased that your friends were round you, and you were not alone...that would have been the worst case. Here's hoping you are able to enjoy your Christmas now and I wish you good sleeps and sweet dreams.

poor dear I know what sleepless nights are like, I tried this product from Amazon its called Natural Sleep Aid from PhiNaturals, it really works and trust me I have tried so many different remedies from, hot milk, sleepy time tea, melatonin, valerian, ect ect all the over the counter crap sleepe eze, nothing was working. This stuff allows you to get drowsy feeling and before you know it you sleep the whole night. Not saying it would work every time because your body does get used to it but a now and then is better then never.
