Feeling the effects of the stress. Wanting to just shut down, feeling overwhelmed.

Gonna try to sleep, but I'm feeling too wired. No movies sound good, no books, even porn sounds bad right now.

If I can't sleep, I may go back upstairs and blow shit up for a while.

Maybe you should take some Benadryl or something. Good ol' diphenhydramine always relaxes me whenever I can't sleep. It's also the active ingredient in Tylenol PM, and doctors prescribe it as an over the counter sleep aid all the time.

Btw, until very recently I was a pharmacy technician. I'm always eager to offer advice on OTC products - outside my professional capacity of course (lest you sue me!).

Cool! I'm always happy to discuss pharmacology, and I promise I won't sue your ass.

I've been taking GABA and melatonin to help me be on the sleepy side of things. Diphenhydramine makes me even more cranky than I already am, and really nobody wants to see that. And then there's the waking up in the morning part, which is usually pretty ugly after a Benadryl night.

I haven't tried the Tylenol PM by itself though. I'll give that a shot.
