|One of my clematis vines from warmer days past|
|My other clematis and me. I think I am Shanna's age here. I had a purple one too.|
So for my melantonin experiment, I am starting out with 5 mg, the maximum dose according to the bottle though I know others take more. Still woke up in the middle of the night, though later and only for an hour. No scary dreams ( a side effect) though an annoying one in which I am on the clock to get dressed in under 5 minutes and I keep tangling my clothes and misplacing things and getting more frantic by the second.
There were two interesting studies reported today in the WSJ: one in which tumors grew faster in mice with interrupted sleep. (they were prodded repeatedly as they tried to sleep). The other in which there is significant shrinkage in brains of older adults with mild hearing loss thought to occur because their auditory process centers aren't stimulated. No word if using hearing aids will slow this down or reverse it.
And another big storm coming our way....
