sorry just wanted to share! had a really rough night last night - didn't sleep a wink, so distended, sick, uncomfortable, rapid pulse etc etc.. saw GP today and got a prescription for picolax. Nasty stuff but goodness it works! things are finally moving again... yippee! so i might get a comfortable night sleep (providing I'm not rushing to the loo all night!).. sorry just had to share. thank you and goodnight yeah
