Also the latest I now take my magnesium supplements is around dinner time say between 6.00pm and 7.00pm. These small steps have assisted me in my daily struggle to get out of bed on workdays.

I was going to ask for xanax or perhaps even temazipam (spelling??) at my last appointment with my Pdoc because of the shorter half-lives of these meds for my evening doses but we got caught up talking about other matters and I completely forgot to ask. Thanks for reminding me and I will definitely discuss this with him next visit.

The weird thing is during the day Valium doesn't cause me any grogginess or drowsiness at all but if I take it at night I will wake up feeling like my head has been hit by a Mack truck while I was sleeping.

> DID YOU ASK YOGA GIRL OUT YET??? (See, we'll keep pestering you until you confess. :-) )

See my response to this question right at the end of my response in your very interesting little thread down below :):). At this stage all I will say is to KEEP pestering me:) :). By the way I have yoga class tonight again!!!!

see ya Alara
