I used to be a great sleeper. As a child, I remember there once was a severe storm that caused a lot of structural damage, including blowing down several chimneys in Glasgow tenements. I slept right through it! None of the stresses and strains of my professional life ever led me to lose much sleep, although, to be fair, until I went part-time in my last 2 years of work, I think exhaustion was a great help in leading me to the Land of Nod!
A patient the other day told me that lettuce could help you sleep. I had never heard this notion, and I must confess I was a bit sceptical. The idea of a salad or a lettuce sandwich at bedtime wasn’t that appealing either!
