Yeah, those herbs are just evil...never again will I try!
I just tried calling to get in to see this new doc (as I haven't been happy with my usual doc) and she has nothing available this week or next week, so for now I'm going to be optimistic and take that as a sign that with God's help, my body can calm down on its own.
Luckily I did not take the Ambien last night and am trying to avoid it. I'm glad the weekend is coming up so I can take it easy and try to relax a lot. I have my room dark, so that step is taken care of.
I am going to stay off the fruit. Hate to give up more carbs, but have doing the best I can to balance the protein/carbs the last few days. And thanks for the tip about avocados/coconut oil combo before bed. Definitely going to try. And I've never tried the melatonin drops. Maybe also worth a try.
