I have mine a couple of hours before bed, so I am quite ready for bed when I go in. I have been habitually reading before falling asleep and I find that on the nights I don't, I do sleep much better. I've stopped checking email and my forums before bed, too. I'm a TV fan, so I'm usually Netflixin' for a few hours, and then a hot shower followed by bed. Stay away from screens at bedtime. I use my phone to keep tabs on my sleep + Apple Watch, and those screens too, may actually be disruptive to sleep. I'll be disappointed if so, its an expensive mistake. May have to revert to a basic fitbit.

I found the Tension Tamer at Kroger.
You're so right about the screens. I have a fitbit that tracks sleep--I don't get enough. The fitbit doesn't seem to be disruptive. That would be awful!

After all my protestations, I had a crap night last night and could not work it out until I remembered that although I had prepped my TT tea... I forgot to have it. So at 2am there I was, reheating it in the microwave oven and taking 2 panadol osteo which I had also forgotten to have at dinner time. Such a dope I am.

I've always had a standard mattress, but Macys had a really good sale on memory foam mattresses last year, so I bought one. It's helped my back a great deal, but not my sleep.

I've bought new pillows and thats no help either.

I sometimes end up falling asleep on the weekends, but I wake up sick and nauseous as I always do after a nap. Otherwise, I cant take naps because Im at work.

im curious if you have tested it regularly to see if there is any improvement as your diabetes gets better under control
i got sleep apnea, then I got diabeties. Most respiratory therapists are pretty comfortable saying that you will get diabetes if you have sleep apnea. the rate is somewhere around 60%

REALLY?????

I've NEVER heard of that. I will have to check that out. I wonder why that is.

Everybody in my family has some form of sleep apnea, and it just gets worse the older you get.

I stopped when I got to Idiopathic, which loosely means, they don't know what is causing it. Ah yes, they don't know, so they give it a nomenclature, that you have to look up.

I am having a lot of mixed feelings right now: on one hand, doctors tend to be consummate professionals; but on the other hand, they tend to hide their nescience [ignorance], by an assumed air of knowing. UM, nope, I ain't buying it.

And fatigue is so prevalent in people, that it is blown off. OK, I can live with that; but I think that doctors are knocked down a peg or two, by the inability to solve fatigue issues.

Maybe the Dr.s are just too tired to concentrate.

I'm still tired and drained all the time. Have been now for going on 2-3 years. I don't know whats causing it, and the Dr.s don't seem to be interested. So, not much I can do about it if the Dr.s aren't interested.
