That's great news! I often have a cup of hot chocolate before I go to bed at night.

I'm scared to death of that! Surgery of any kind freaks me out, but my EYES???!!! I don't have cataracts and I know not everyone gets them. But they are common......And I don't have anyone to drive me.

I don't know what's considered "high dose" but my own doctor said for me to take OTC supplements because my Vit D level was so low. Well it improved a lot now!

After all those years of hearing avoid the sun because it causes skin cancer, I still avoid the sun. I wear a big hat or use my umbrella, wear sunscreen, and usually long sleeves. Plus, the sun is HOT here where I am, not mild and soothing. If exposes without sunscreen I keep it brief, just a few minutes not hours. Sun exposure is cumulative in how it damages, as I have sun damage now from my years of sunbathing as a teenager! In those days, there was no talk of skin cancer.

Used to get Coppertone's dark tanning lotion and lay there and bake, like chicken! I cringe when I think of it now.

You've reminded me to drink hot chocolate sometimes instead of coffee, LOL. But I keep thinking of it as a "cold weather drink" and we don't get enough cold weather there. Plus it says "MIGHT" help. I don't drink any liquid before bed as that means more bathroom trips. As a kid hot chocolate didn't keep me up or have that effect.....It does have sugar which hypes me up. It's richer made with milk instead of hot water too.

On the subject of cocoa and chocolate, I know the dark chocolate is better since it's not so sweet. But it doesn't taste as rich and creamy.

My house's air conditioner works well enough that I can drink hot drinks.

I don't mind getting up at night to go to the bathroom. But maybe I should drink the hot chocolate as my dessert after dinner.

Some of us can't afford to run the a/c or it's one of those "room" a/c's so one room is cool but the rest of the place is scorching.

Getting up is disruptive to sleep and sometimes it's not easy to go back to sleep.......Really, it's a nuisance. No liquids after 6pm, certainly not caffeinated ones.

Oops, I just took my Vitamin D on an empty stomach--so I ate a cookie.

So hot & humid out this summer I can't tolerate being out much but my new neighbor bought 3 horses & I am caring for them while they are gone for awhile. Getting my lawn tractor back from repairs this week. Has been in the shop since fathers day so lots of mowing needs done. So will have to force myself outside more now.....bugs have been bad too in the heat & humidity. Kinda glad I could hibernate more this summer
