Chamomile tea and time for bed

United States
September 14, 2020 11:01pm CST
It is 9 p.m. and I think that I am going to call it quits for the night. I am finishing up a mug of chamomile tea. The dishes in the dishwasher just finished their cycle, but I will wait to put them away. I'll take care of them in the morning. It's time for me to let Honey out, and then fit these pants on her before we head upstairs. Goodnight to all. I shall see you in my morning. Photo credit: Pixabay

Enjoy your tea. Have a good night rest. Rest things can wait till morning when you are fresh after a good sleep

I slept better last night than I have in a very long time. I think I might still be able to get another 2 hours!

I bought chamomile yesterday, not the tea, the herbal infusion, my husband likes it when the cold comes.

I'm hoping so. I had not been getting good sleep at all for several days. I bought the doggie incontinence pants so that I could take a sleeping pill. She's on a diuretic so I've been waking up every hour or two and then not getting back to sleep. But, that gave me the Peace of mind. I woke up once in the middle of the night, and I believe I got about 9 hours of sleep total

@TheSojourner The incontinence pants help a lot ! You mentioned that Honey has heart failure,I guess this is why she has to take a diuretic.

@changjiangzhibin89 yes, a few weeks ago I took her in because of extremely high respiration and I was hearing a rattling in her chest. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and the lung x-rays showed that she had fluid on her lungs. They immediately put her on lasix to get that off of her. we waited for the blood work to come back and found out that her other functions were fine, so she started her on a blood pressure pill and also a heart medication. We're doing this to make her quality of life better. I am happy to say that her resting respiration is now less than half what it was a few weeks ago. She seems to be a lot better. However, I do know that there is no cure for this and she is in her last part of life. I just hope I get some good time with her for however long it is.

It is said that it has a relaxing property to it. I like it because it's non-caffeinated and I like the flavor. I would send you a couple of packets if you are interested in trying. They should easily slip in a small card

I did. I'm not sure she did. I'm going to try the pants on her again tonight. I don't think she cared much for them last night. Hope you had a good day today. I'm going to watch an episode of a show I got from the library tonight, & then head to bed about 10 p.m.

Chamomile has a very distinctive flavor. It's very light, and relaxing.

This was from last night. LOL I'm getting ready to watch Idris Elba in another episode of the latest season of "Luther." I'll be up for a couple of hours. Hope you are going to get enough rest. I know you have been busy preparing for company.

Do you find that chamomile tea helps you relax/sleep? Or does it just make you get up and go to the bathroom more the way it does me?

I don't know if it helps me relax more, or if it's a mental thing, but it's not caffeine. I was up at 2:00 a.m.. and then again at 7:00. I got a total of eight plus hours of sleep according to the Fitbit.

She does not fancy them too much. She didn't sleep real well and then I took them off of her at 1:00 in the morning before we went outside for her to go. I did not put them back on her, and she did well. We're going to have to get used to this, I'm sure.
