BEVVYS1 it sounds like you are on your way to health. SP has so many great diabetes articles to help you figure out the good carb vs. bad carb solutions. Keep up the exercise and you'll be amazed at how your body keeps improving in strength, flexibility, and stamina. It definately aids in sleep, too. Enjoy your new lifestyle!

I feel the same way. I am on Metformin and have been for a couple of years now. I seem to be tired all the time and still do not know a good carb from a bad carb. I do know white potatoes, rice and bread are not good for me. Other than that I am just now starting to take control and have finished my fourth day of working out in a six day period. Thats four more days than I have done in the last six months. I am really glad so many of these exercises can be done moderately to start with. I recently had a TIA and am not going to let this disease of Diabetes be the cause of me having lots of other problems if I can avoid them at all. I have not slept all night in about four years. 3 straight hours would feel like heaven to me. I just signed up for this site yesterday. I am on my way!!!

Have you ever had a sleep study done to make sure the always being tired isn't a result of sleep apnea? Just a thought...

I've found that you won't really start feeling rested until it becomes a habit. One day of proper sleep won't erase the last week of poor sleep

I found that when I felt like this, I was not eating enough Carbs. So I would increase my Carbs by adding a small snack in addition to what I was already eating for the day. I would do this for a few days and I felt a lot better.

Finally got a full night's sleep last night for the first time in a week, but I am still soooooooooooo tired!!! I WANT to be active and productive, but I am sooooooooo tired my brain is fuzzy and I just want to lay down and rest. Does anyone else experience this? What do you do to take care of yourself when you feel like this?
