    10.9 this morning. Lowest this week 9.7, highest 11.1. Still not losing any weight either, even though I was told I can stop the Gliclazide two weeks ago. Feeling thoroughly fed up with it all. Huge stress in my life as carer for husband with Alzheimer's. If I've had a bad day with him I tend to binge eat before bed, or have some whiskey and 2 paracetamol at bed time so I can sleep. My sleep pattern is atrocious and I'm often still be wide awake at 4.00 a.m.
