I woke up shaking and having to talk myself into going back to sleep, "It was just a dream." Cat's story has given me about 3 or 4 separate nightmares now and I last read that story more than a month ago. It's not overly graphic, it does have a bit of suspense in parts. Her world though is so vividly drawn, the claustrophobia and the paranoia and the being one of the last people left on earth and not knowing why or what happened or if it was over and who you can trust. And the loneliness. I kinda hate postapocalypse stories. Cause I don't wanna have to build society from the bottom up - I mean, yeah, it's exciting, starting from scratch, except it's not from scratch and there's all those dead bodies to bury.
So today I am trying something else for the sleep thing - dates, paw paw and pineapple are supposed to increase serotonin levels. Might has well try it.
