I am writing to ask about insomnia. My son was recently diagonsed with diabetes, type II.
He is 31 YO and in complete denial. He is also under an awful lot of stress both from his job and his personal life. I, ofcourse ,am very very concerned and worried about him. He is overweight and a smoker. He does not take care of himself. He works very long hours, has a very long commute to and from work and just worries and takes care of his family and not himself.
The latest thing that is happening is, he is not able to get any sleep at night.
He falls asleep and wakes after an hr or two and can not fall back to sleep. This has been going on now for some time . His doctor, ( who he never goes to except that he had to last week because he came down with pnemonia) has given him Lunesta which he says does nothing at all. He also takes xanax for anxiety but not regularly.
I am trying to find him help so I am starting by searching these boards for advice. Is insomonia a result of being a diabetic? Anyone have any input or advice it will be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.
hope to hear soon
