This is GREAT!!! Sounds like you are doing better already, not getting as aggravated as usual.

The sweating will go away after a while.

SLEEP!!! That is what Lex has done for me too. I was an insomniac befor Lex, a contributing factor of my depression. Now I sleep SOUNDLY THROUGH the night, no more waking at 3AM to stare at the clock until alarm went off. THANK YOU Lex!!!

Hang in there and hopefully you will get good results also~~~8|8
