Bach Flowers to the rescue - again

A few days ago a friend confided to me that he hadn't slept well in months. He'd taken prescriptions and over the counter medicines, with no relief. Finally he tried melatonin. The melatonin made him sleep, but even it made him feel groggy and slow-witted for the whole next day. He just didn't know what to do next.

Now this friend is not in the best of health - and he takes so many prescriptions that he's sure they're all fighting in his body. But the doctors tell him to take them, so he does. I suppose he's more afraid not to take them than he is of the side effects.

I considered his problem and the fact that for a short while I had experienced sleeping problems. I thought about the bottle of Feel Bach Sweet Dreams on my shelf. Then I decided there was no harm in trying, and yesterday took him the bottle. I knew it was safe, and if it was the wrong formula for him it would do no harm.

What I didn't know was if he would take it, since he believes in prescriptions. But he said he'd try it - he felt desperate. I cautioned him that sometimes it takes several days to notice the change, and wondered if he'd stick with it.

Well, Bach Flowers must have been exactly what he needed, because this morning he called to tell me he had awakened only once during the night, and had taken more at that time. And this morning, he felt rested for the first time in months.

Wow. I had no idea it could work that quickly! I'm sure glad I shared.

Is there someone in your life who would benefit from you sharing? If so, just do it. Helping that way feels really good!

Yours for happiness,
Marte
