    Oh @PatsyB.
    I'm awake since 2.30am and I promised an attentive day today, I'll be lucky.
    I'm burdened by thrush from the Dapagliflozin tablet again. I stopped it for a few days as I was riving my hair out (not literally). The more I drink to flush it out the more angry the area gets.
    I might have to take one day on and one day off to see if less side affect. Or stop it totally like before. Adding weight as a result though.
    I need to keep my weight off for my operation. So thrush thrush thrush.
    The thing is once I stop it for operation I'm going to add weight too. I cannot win.

    Thanks for listening.
    Do you know why your body is wakening you? For the bathroom too?

    It’s been a year since he was diagnosed with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. We’ve still got the chair and only use it now in emergencies.

    Thrush free night due to pints and pints of iced water and intensive treatment yesterday but only have 2 left. Having annual blood tests only done tomorrow (I think) so will ask for more via receptionist. Have a doctors receptionist callback to do so this may be changed. I'm easy going, they know that.
    How is my night owlers?

    Definitely hormonal. Insulin hormone causes hunger and liver wakes us up with glucose at end of sleeping peak to prevent deaths in none diabetics.
    Metformin aids to reassure the liver a little. Diet produced glucose is our best influence, second is meds and third is exercise.
    Diet glucose fighting can get laborious for me. I've had diabetes too long. My bariatric surgery will refresh this dangerous process with my knowledge and refreshed persistence I should get on top of it all again.
    Ive done it a few times but this one will be permanent. I'd do it alone but hunger sabotages my efforts everytime now. Too much insulin to fight. Without injections at mo I'd be black, for sure.

    Oh no.
    Thinking of you.
    I think my iron/anemia is playing up as sleeping loads. I've stopped caffeine.
    Just want to sleep all the time. Stress does me in too. Luckily my op is in a few weeks not months. So less stressing time. :) :) :)

    I woke a few times last night but got up at 7am for school runs. Played games on phone til 7am. No pain. I think tramadol and amtripaline has settled into my system. I may reduce tramadol to one to see how it goes.
    No dihydrocodeine now. So less knocked out for sleep.
    Feeling my thyroid is complaining today though. Seeing endo in 2mths time so will wait for GP or bariatric Unit blood tests on thyroid.
    I'll keep taking the tablets. Ha ha

    Hopefully your underactive thyroid is working better lately and your med needs reducing. Will you let us know?
