Machts nichts on the language -- you do just fine.

I don't know how long Valium's half life is, but you can look it up at and find out. That's where I go to learn about that sort of thing.

And I do know what you mean about waking up from nightmares but not remembering them. For me, the worst nightmares are not in English, so I get to build up the anxiety throughout the dream because I recognize that Something Bad is going to happen, just by the language. (And it's a language I no longer speak while waking.) When I wake up from one, I generally can't remember anything beyond the building anxiety and that Something Bad happened -- only the feelings, not the content that triggered them. I try not to let it bother me that I can't remember what actually happened, but to respect the fact that I have had a nightmare. Sometimes, it's hard.

I think the idea of taking something to help you sleep is a good one, although I find that the benzos leave me more depressed the next day. Talk to your doctor about what would be best for you. There are dozens of options out there, so something will help.

Best luck, and what's your native language?
