Mumble - it's generalised anxiety rather than attributable to one specific cause, fairly intermittent and the main issue is that it prevents her sleeping when it happens. I admire her attempts to deal with it, but I don't think she's going to stick with the valerian.
As for support - I'm it!

When Kerre had persistent intrusive thoughts last year his psychiatrist suggested we try CBT. As there wasn't really anyone at CAMHs trained in CBT we decided to gve it a go ourselves with the help of a book called 'Mind over Mood' that the psychiatrist had suggested.
Kerre was reluctant to share the nature of his thoughts which was awkward but not insurmountable. Although CBT is not a panacea it did help to have something to work towards and it does contain a good deal of old-fashoined 'common sense'. I think it helped a little to put things in prespective and was certainly better that feeling we were floundering about with no purpose.
I would recommend the book.

ps if using chamomile make sure its not GERMAN chamomile as this is far more of an irritant to some peoples tums.
I tried rescue remedy in 1987 ,using walnut,it had a very slight effect but I think a good shot of brandy or brown rum would be more effective,

Not got any experience with Hoomans, but as far as Tabby is concerned the gerbils can have the herbals!
