    My boy buying his first car, cold starting it the next day and the PS making horrible noises until warm.

    Hoping clean fluid will fix it.

    Well today at work I ring up local disability services to arrange cleaning services for a disabled client. The team looking after that in a meeting, the switchboard would sent that team an email saying to call me back. Great. Sweet.

    I go out to show a client a rental property (that they were approved for on the spot), come back and our receptionist tells me that the switchboard sent that email to the whole disability services organisation - and its massive. Employs thousands across the state.

    Not only that the email said that it was from 'me'. So whilst I was out reception took a dozen or so calls from people around the state who got my request for assistance. Reception told me about it upon my return. Nipping it in the bud, I immediately told my manager what had happened - she was 100% fine with it, as it was not our fault.

    Wet weather zombies.

    I don't know what it is but as soon as the wet weather hits all the ####ing idiots seem to come out onto the road.... Was out this evening, just come through an intersection, poor lighting, it's raining and some idiot in dark clothing runs across the road between traffic. thank #### I was moving slowly or the dumb ####er would have been dead, not more than 3 minutes later some idiot tries to do a quick one out of a side road and cuts me off, another near miss. FFS :bang:

    I'm pissed off right now because I went to the chemist to see if I could get something to help with sleep, I've been waking up a lot in the last few nights, no reasons. So one of the girls working behind the desk recommended this Melatonin tablets. Well on further research this Bioglan Melatonin tablets are a Homeopathic Medicine. Its dosage per tablet is 6X. I had to Google what the #### that even is. It means that the tablets have a dilation ratio of 1:1,000,000. So for every 1mL of melatonin, it is mixed with 1,000L of water. So basically I paid $25 for water tablets.

    Why the #### would a CHEMIST sell me such ****??? These people work with MEDICINE not hopes and dreams. If I wanted a useless solution, I could have prayed for free.

    Definitely taking this back tomorrow. And someone is going to cop it because I haven't had decent sleep in 4 days. Then I'm going to see a doctor for a prescription for something that might actually work.

    Because when people walk in asking for something specifically, they normally get very angry when you tell them it doesn't work, trust me, I work in health.

    If you want sleep, take doxcylamine (One brand is restavit, but the pharmacist will have a cheaper brand that's the same). Don't take it more than 4 days in a row or you will stuff your liver, but it's fine every now and then (I take 3 a fortnight for day sleeping when working nights.

    I'm not after something specifically, I walked into the Pharmacy asking for advice, and this is what she recommended. I trusted her as a pharmacist to provide some credible suggestions. Instead I got some very expensive water.

    I actually did the maths, a normal Circadin tablet is 2mg, to get 2mg of Melatonin from this Hemeopathic tablets, I would need 2kg of them, each tablet from what I have read, weighs 1g, so I would need 2000 tablets, and at 90 tablets at $24.50 that I paid, I would need to spend $539 in these Bioglan Melatonin to get the benefit of 1 Circadin tablet. Or I could get a bottle from the states for $10, Now Foods, Melatonin, 3 mg, 180 Capsules - iHerb.com

    Well, it could have been worse mate. Imagine if you'd been asking for something to cure an erection. She'd probably have sold you a box of starch.:lmao:

    Hey mate before you try something prescribed, I can HIGHLY recommend these: Buy Cenovis Easy Sleep Valerian 2000mg 30 Capsules Online at Chemist Warehouse®

    Take two 30 minutes before you go to bed. They're 100% natural and have helped both me and my wife when we have periods of un-restful sleep.

    Thanks mate, I'll give those a try.

    I did sleep better last night, only woke up once or twice. It probably has something to do with my shift work, boss put my on a Friday 6pm-4:30am shift, then Saturday 2pm-11pm, Sunday 12-9pm, Monday 7am-4pm. I think its just screwing with my sleep. Hes been doing that to me a lot lately.

    Also a good idea :)

    Hubby and I did the same and the Chemist sold us a box of Restavit along with a stern lecture about not taking them for more than 3 days in a row. We both started with 1/4 tab but found 1/2 tab gives us both a good sleep. We have had the box about 3 months now and only used them three times.

    Nothing worse than night after night of restless and/or broken sleep.
