LOL! I never thought of that. I don't know if my husband would appreciate me climbing over him to get up in the morning. LOL

First of all I am not a good judge of normal. :) I don't think you're alone in feeling tired because food provides energy and if you are just waking up, it explains why your 8-10 hour fast overnight has zapped you of some energy which is one reason why breakfast is so important, not only to diabetics but to everyone. How much sleep are you getting? Is it quality sleep? It is hard to diagnose what could be responsible for your morning sleepiness but you may wish to talk to your doctor if it continues. There are night people and morning people. I am wide awake when I wake up but by 9:00 or so at night, I'm beat. Sometimes morning exercise will help to energize you. Control what's in your control and seek medical advice for things beyond it.

This is normal, but also a warning so take some time to try to figure out. It could be sleep issues, sugar issues, or other things. Keeping a log or journal will help. Sometimes even having a stress in your day can affect your sleep and it becomes a vicious cycle. As you keep track, take that in to your next doctor visit to go over that with your doctor and see if you can work out a treatment plan together.

There may be many other factors contributing to this. You need to systematically go through the list and eliminate possible causes. Of course the easiest one to eliminate is your BSL. Test what your level is upon waking. Another obvious one is clinical depression. Good luck. Hope you have it sorted out soon.

Yes and No.
This can happen to anyone, diabetic or not, it is not a sign of being diabetic, this can be a result of what you eat prior to your bedtime, what time you go to bed, how well you sleep and how much sleep that you get and many other factors.

What type of diabetic are you (type 1 or 2) ?
