Hello Brian. I did not sleep too well last night. I do not think it is diabetes related. In my case I think I have a lot on my mind. You do not think you think about it but you do. About 6 months I had insomnia and went almost out of my mind. Never take AMBIEN it was an awful med. I try to think good thoughts listen to the radio under my pillow. I sure can sympathize with you. MY BG 106 I hope yours is good. Take care. Reed

Hi Brian, just looked at your profile and see you're barely a month into this, you're still in shock, it'll get better. You'll have to make some changes but it's all doable. If Jenny Ruhls site makes sense to you you might want to check out the Bernstein group here on tuD

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.

thanks Brian, let me know if you're looking for anything special. I've had it a long time and my husband's type 2.
