I have massive problems falling asleep. I lay down and my mind races to the next day, week, month, shoot, and whatever is still on my plate.

My girlfriend suggested Melatonin. She said it was an herbal thing to promote sleep. Any time I hear " Herbal," I imagine hippys that smell like cardboard and look like pasty skinny ghosts.

Well I finally got talked into trying it. Lovely stuff. That doens't make me a pasty hippy does it?

So that's my thought for the day. If you don't sleep well...

Ah, melatonin. Nice stuff. If for whatever reason that stops working, I've got prescription drugs.

Damn dirty hippies.

Be a Republican. Take Ambien, drink bourbon, conquer the third world.

With a name like Christian you should know this.

I thought melatonin was the colouring agent produced in the skin. Therefore I thought taking extra might give you a tan. I was wrong - that's melanin. Pity, 'cause there were some cool jokes you could make about that.

I googled it - turns out melatonin is a hormone produced, amongst other places, by the pineal gland and the retina (at last! a photography-related point to this!). Looks like it's related to sleep, and used in treating sleep disorders and circadian rhythm upsets.

Glad it's working for you.

Well, I've noticed that you seem to have Mellowed quite a bit,...maybe that's where the name comes from.
I get off the computer at night and watch 30 minutes of TV, then go to bed and sleep like a baby.
