    Has anyone ever been perscribed CHLORAL HYDRATE (LIQUID..2 teaspoons at bedtime) or know anything about its use for sleep problems? I'm having a very rough time now...kind of a backlash of an excruciating pain flare as a result of the emotional stress and physical over doing of getting my belongings moved to Jackson Tennessee. I expected this, but going through it is a different matter all together.

    In addition, i am going to physical therapy 3-4 times a week as a result of a recent slip and fall..(mild concussion, contussions etc.). I'm experiencing alot of cognitive impairment and fatique...by the way, prior to the s&l I have fm/cfs, depression, sleep disorder, mvp, panic attacks(did i forget something ?)...so the slip and fall just made matters worse...especially when i had planned to moved and living in Tennessee by Sept 15...but I guess God had different plans.

    I know joy comes in the morning but i could use some this afternoon. Life is tricky and messy...oh well it's time for me to listen to my body and go to sleep for a couple of hours. Please keep me in your prayers and all who suffer this illness.

    Thank God for this site!!!!!
