I've had mild insomnia for awhile, but did fine using a little melatonin. I don't want to take more, because there is some thought that people with autoimmune problems shouldn't take high dosages. About a month or two ago, Difficult Child was assaulted. We got a restraining order. It was a very peculiar experience, as the perpetrator's family is friendly with an attorney, who was extremely aggressive. However, we did fine and a restraining order was granted. The experience shook me up on a number of levels. But, all is much better now, so I'm surprised my insomnia has worsened so much. Has anyone developed bad insomnia in their mid fifties? Has anyone successfully treated bad insomnia? What did you do? Thank you.
