    How Do You All Handle The Dark?

    Well, dear one, I think it was sometime in my late 20's, that I could fall asleep with just a little night light on. TV is my sleeping pill, usually I try to set the timer, but I always have to see when I wake up. I would be terrified as you say, if I could not see. Try some night lights in the...
