In The Mind

Sometimes horrible news like murders, deaths and robberies scare me, especially if they happen to someone I know, however indirectly. My sleep gets affected and my childhood security blankets make a reappearance. The past month was rife with deaths, murders, unpleasantness, grief and tragedies. I suddenly find I can't sleep unless I drink a warm cup of milk before going to bed. I feel comforted, soothed and relaxed. The last time this had happened to me was when my grandmother passed away back in 1998. Milk seems to work for me better than melatonin these days and I know it's all in my mind!
