I used to work a 'morning' schedule from 4am to 1230. This created havoc for my eating schedule and my doctors hated it. When I no longer worked that schedule I had to slowly change the times that I was eating until I got to a more normal schedule. For me, when I have a big change in my schedule I will usually end up in the hospital with DKA. So no matter what you have to do to get back on a better schedule, just be careful that you dont put your body through too much too fast. Good luck! :-)

Just take your time. Don't do everything at one time. That would put pressure on you. congrads!!!!!

Congrats! I guess like anything else, it's just another lifestyle change to adapt to. I went from multiple swing shifts with holidays to a straight 9-5/no weekends or holidays. It took me a good 3 years to develop a routine sleep habit. Can't tell you much that you don't already know, just watch the meter and act accordingly
