Re: alergies preventing sleep?

Just because your house is "very clean" does not mean you don't have dust mites. They are impossible to get rid of. Have you tried taking a benedryl at bedtime? It's the "PM" in Tylenol PM so it won't hurt to take it. I take one most nights myself - and just for this type of thing.

You didn't offend me! It's just that you can't totally rid your house of dust mites unless you live in a bubble.....
