Last month my boss required that I start coming into work a half hour earlier. Due to traffic and my general difficulty getting up in the morning, it has resulted in my waking up 90 minutes earlier, and testing my fasting sugar about an hour earlier. The difference is amazing. I averaged 120-135 before the change, and now 140-155 when testing an hour earlier. What ticks me off is that it took me 2 years to get control of my morning sugar level and the boss seems completely oblivious to the impact it has on my health.

In addition to the higher testing levels (or maybe as a consequence), I have been more fatigued throughout the day, had chronic back pain and headaches. I also went through a 3 day period of gastro-intestinal distress (use your imagination), and still have a frequent gas & urination problem (I will stop being gross now). Oh, and my weight has jumpt a few pounds (was under 145, now around 146-7. Not a biggie, but being obsessive about these things, I hate when something does not go right.

To the point, has anyone ever had to deal with a situation imposed on them that forced a health-related change in lifestyle?
