Cetacean consumerism and Vitamin D deficiency!

Frickin' night sweats!
Waking up drenched with sweat at between 3:30am and 4:30am for weeks now.
Obviously couldn't be menopause...

So... Went to the doctor about them yesterday as they are getting seriously annoying.
Had to have a blood test for thyroid function, but it seems I'm very, very deficient in Vitamin D.

No smart cracks about sitting inside in front of a computer all day please.
I do go outside into the large room with the blue roof and the day star.
Quite often in fact.

Looked up foods rich in Vit D.
All my favorite fish! Mackerel, Salmon, Herring, Sardines and Tuna!
Nom nom nom!

But in any case, I went to Woolworth's to get a supplement to see if that would help in the short term.

Went to the section with all the ibuprofen, aspirin, HPLC bars and what not and had a "Wait. What?" moment:

Seems Woolworth's is trying to get more whales to visit its stores.
What will be next? Soylent Green?

Anyway, got a vitamin D supplement and some Evening Primrose oil and took it before bed last night.

No sweats!
It *appeared* to work.

Still woke up at 4am, but didn't need to have a shower or wash the bed clothes.

Dunno if it was the Vit D or Primrose at this stage.
