I wake up with a need for a cup of coffee

gosh i wake up with simotanose and equely urgent needs to pee and drink and sometimes can't decide what to do first! as for the late sleeping i generaly don't get out of bed before 8 or 9am but then i don't get to bed (from work) untill 2 or 3 am the same day. as for eating and living... i'm doing my best. it is not easy to get good food hear( doing better now i order foods off line) and my time schedule makes living harder, but i do my best. it will be easier with spring, the cold makes me want to hibernate.


nothing to do? who has that!?

hope you get to sleep off the needed hours during the weekend to regulate your Arcadian rhythm, so you experience no sign of adrenal fatigue later on in life!

I would kill to get 7 hours a night, or even 1 night a week. I'm lucky if I get 5 hours with intervals. Can't remember the last time I slept for more then 4 hours in a row.

I've always woken up quite easily.  Have children through the years has made me take a big detour of that habit but eventually I naturally go back to waking early with the urge to use the bathroom.  Many times I'll drink a large glass of water just before going to sleep.  It's as good as an alarm clock.
I chose that I lived according to Dr. D's plan.  I figure that you're eating right as well if you're living it.

I can't remember the last time I got a good nights rest, without drugs like ambien and really is that any good for ya?  So I don't sleep well.  I can't fall asleep, usually fighting to nod off and if I do fall asleep I am a light sleeper.  I am hoping that my sleeping will get better for me now that I am trying to take better care of myself (supplement wise).  I eat right, no problem there.  I just need to get my body into a rhythum that works for sleeping.  When John was home I slept much better than I do now.

When I wake up in the morning, I want to pee first before anything else.

Most of my sleeping problems started when I was flying.  All the crazy schedules, duty days 12-14 hours,... rest periods 8 hours (only because they are mandated by that FAA).  And really no one gets 8 hours of rest on an 8 hour overnight.  Takes an hour to get to the hotel checked in and settled, then another 30 min to get to sleep IF your lucky (I'm not) and then it takes an hour in the morning to get ready and another 30-45 min van ride to the AP.  So if I am doing the math correctly, if one is lucky to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep they will get 5-6 hours of rest to go back and do another 12 -14 hour duty day again.  And passengers wonder why flight crews are so grouchy these days.  Ahhhhh the glamour of being a flight attendant.  Glorified, aircraft cleaners, trash collectors, junk food sales people and rule enforcement officers.  It's no wonder I drop all my trips to those that want them or take voluntary leaves when they are offered.

I wake up every few hours and have my entire life - even with sleeping pills. If I know that I need to get up at a certain time, I set my alarm and wake up about 10 minutes before!
( I almost never wake up to the sound of an alarm)

I've got an alarm clock that I can't turn off too.  His name is Cowboy.  He's regular; every morning right at the crack of dawn.  Although I'm a lot like you Meghan in that if I do set the clock I turn the alarm off before it sounds.    

Finally sleeping through most nights now.  Only getting up for the occasional bathroom break these nights lately.  

I had a bottle of wine with a friend last night over an amazing dinner.  I attribute my two interruptions last night to the extra glass (or two) of vino.  I'll take it though.  I woke up with a glucose level of 79 which is outstanding as for as my data collecting goes thus far on my journey.

Thanks Cristina!  You've been a true inspiration for me here. Thanks for all the encouraging words and seeds of wisdom you've planted my way.  

Yeah, 79 is a far cry from the 105 I received back on May 8th or thereabouts.  I cannot wait to show my GP the data I've collected over the past 4 weeks.  I have a feeling she'll refuse to believe the actual numbers just as she believed I was better off using the antacids than I was w/o taking them.     

I'm eternally grateful to Dr D and all the contributors here.  Without your support I have a feeling I would have continued to trust my intuition (and previous belief system) and not tried the mentioned remedies which have turned my life around.  

My friend called me today to say "Rob, I'm so proud of you.  You are a different person than what you've been over the last 17 years I've know you.  I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes."  

I cannot begin to tell you what that phone call meant to me.  This is the same person that said "I'm not so sure about your 'lil blood type' diet just a couple weeks ago.  

I want no credit except for having the faith it took to step out and try a different method.  Peter deserves the credit for the research and decades of dedication to the effect.  His publishers are genius for presenting the material in a cohesive and comprehensible manner.  

I knew the first time I grabbed that book from my MD friend's bookshelf that I had found the key that unlocks the mystery behind me.

Thanks Lola....

Honestly, I really never trusted her.  Once she said I'd have to be on meds the rest of my life I knew she was playing with a different deck of cards than the ones in my hand.  

I knew my cat's diabetes condition was controlled with diet.... why, on earth, couldn't mine be?

This is like the natural practitioner that told me "You can eat anything you want as long as you take the supplements I recommend."  Like why would I want to take a handful of supplements twice a day when I should be able to eat differently to control some of this?  This was before I knew anything about BTD, but if she can recommend supplements, why can't I eat some of that instead of taking the pills?

apparently they've found that wine doesn't raise blood sugar...... as grape juice would....the sugar has been turned to alcohol which is metabolized by a different pathway...

I agree with their findings.    

I'm certain a couple glasses of red wine with my nightly dinner has attributed to my declining waking blood glucose numbers.  Just weeks ago, I had trouble entertaining the idea of drinking wine while trying to lower my BG numbers.
