Got a response to the Tryptophan post last week – “The Myth of Tryptophan.” I’m pretty much in agreement with that (as I think I said). It’s not the tryptophan, it’s everything combined together (essentially, the body doesn’t breakdown the tryptophan to make you sleepy as it’s been posited).

I’m actually starting to heal – got sore after a lot of driving and then walking, but it’s not as bad as it was, and I am able to find a comfortable way to lie on the bed so I can sleep. Progress.
