Re: pleasant dreams before a ride

Hi, Colleen.

The night before a show or a trial, I am an absolute nervous wreck.  The
Crohn's kicks in with a vengeance, so my stomach and I become more intimate
than I would like, and I can't sleep at all either.  For years, I tried
everything to go to sleep, and then eventually I just decided to hell with
it.  Now I stock up with videos (hence the Buffy info request) and rice
cakes, and spend the night in front of the TV.  It helps me to relax, and I
sleep like a log the next night.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but it works for me.
