Like "Hi Joyce. So what do you think the problem was? Have you discussed it with your dr? I also seem to wake up around 3ish. My stress level is low to none, and anxiety was more prominent when I drove California freeways. That was one of the reasons I retired. The excessive freeway traffic (driving 60 miles at only 15-20 mph) was taking its toll on my sugar. I could leave downtown LA and my sugar could be 97, but by the time I got home it would be 179 or so. "
