Hi Texas Sweetpea. Love the name! I, too, am recently diagnosed with Type 2, and mine is mild. My morning levels are erratic. My goal is 80-120, and I usually hover between 115-120. Some mornings, lately, it has been between 120 and 130. I read here that it helps to eat something before bed; I had apple and peanut butter the other night, and it went back down to 101. This morning it was higher again, but I wasn't able to follow a regular meal shedule. I had to go for a stress test at noon and couldn't eat breakfast before. Then it took much longer than I expected, and I didn't get home until 4:30. They had given me some graham crackers and juice at some point, but by the time I got home I was exhausted and starved. I only had time for one meal before I fell asleep, and it was a larger one than usual, though not to high in carbs. So I think that might have made a difference. Anyway, I am going to arrange my meal plan so that I can have a little protein, fat, and fruit before bed and see how I do. Still experimenting. Good luck to you, and welcome to the forum.
Take care. Loishttp://www.geocities.com/eljay1066/Aunt_Babe_s_House.html
