    I really should try that Dingo.
    I'm also going back on the happy pills, maybe that will help me sleep better too, who knows, I've been a crappy sleeper for so long now I can't remember when I slept normal.

    I really do like sticky rice though, maybe I will eat a bowl before bed just for the hell of it lol

    Hmmm and it's really not good to eat straight before bed anyway.
    I've heard you shouldn't eat after 8 30 pm, not sure how true that is though.

    What is sticky rice? Do you just cook the long grain rice normally and I wonder if instant rice would be the same thing?

    Look for glutinous or sushi rice in the grocery store.

    Look for Jasmine rice, which is shorter grain, and higher on the Glycemic Index--it will have a quicker effect on your blood sugar which is conducive to putting you to sleep.

    higher GI jasmine rice which has shorter grains and a stodgier consistency.
