Welcome. This is called the insomnia thread, but we post 24/7/365. We call ourselves Owlettes :)

No nastiness, bullying, stalking or such allowed. I would like to keep the kind fabric of this thread intact.

Discussion will flow where it will as all threads do. This will be a happy place. I hope with lots of laughing. Talk of things, needs, rants as your mood or thoughts take you. Each person here has a history of helping others. Threads develop pseudo family groups. Fancy way to say we become like family. This family will have all the best a family has to offer, but none of the negatives.

Clucking shucks, it turned to a new page Alamik your probably still there but don't know there 's someone here to chat with ---oh well so lets just chat with The chickens. Have we been treating you well? Yes? nothing abusive? I believe the spa was wonderful and you...? Well I suppose the headless part might have been ...different, But you have to admit the space was good and everyone had arm room to spread their wings. Pardon? ah a bit drafty. Perhaps will do it in the tub room next time. What do you think? Ah Ok I will suggest it. Any special requests?  Ok lavender, I'll pass that on. Oh you prefer no asparagus  puffing? um why's that? You prefer the real stuff.  Real stuff? Well I'm not sure that will do , see smoking asparagus isn't against the law in any state. And are rules abide by the law. So, you want to make sure the spa is where? Ok i will pass that on.  Well I only have one Marlboro left for the night. Which I will puff on and refresh the page with the hope that someonelse is still up.Chicks I'll pass on all your requests. So, nice to have someone to talk with at 3am.

Hi Tink and Nancy! nancy I lived in CA a long time ago. 1st in Anaheim then in Santa Rosa. Where are you?Lots of good stories from those days. I still have friends there. Lately I've been in touch with the one in Laguna Beach. If  I hadn't gotten married a few years ago I'd be on a plane to see that friend in no time.

Hi all,

Finished treatment at Thanksgiving but still cannot sleep at night.  Sometimes take Benadryl just to go to bed.  Not sure why this is?

Would love to go to DC Cupcakes sometime.  They look so good.

I would like to have one right now...
