    Hi @CzukayFan - I just wanted to point out a mistake in your answers above; you forgot to mention Rush in your favourite music question! They are, after all, the greatest band of all time and Neil Peart is surely Canada's greatest son!

    Hi, my name is Sheri & I have cfrd (cystic fibrosis diabetes) which is kind of a mixture of type 1 & type 2. It means I can or must eat a very high calorie diet to try & maintain a healthy weight. I am also currently on the lung transplant list, have osteoporosis, arthritis.
    My hba1c was 62 at last clinic, up from a good 52. My sugars lately are out of control, so hoping to get a new view on how to manage my blood sugars.
    I currently take novarapid & usually inject between 3-6units per meal as I am or was sensitive to insulin. Not on any long acting.
    I hope to gain some more knowledge from you guys as I'm not really clued up on diabetes even though I've had it for the last 5 yes .
    Xx

    Hi I'm mark I've been a T 1 diabetic since 1980. Have probably been through most things during the 37 years I have had diabetes. And to be honest nothing shocks me now. I lost my leg below the knee in 2014 . My own fault I knew the rules but didn't play by them . But in recent times have decide to " screw the nut and things are good. I still live life to the full , and nothing gets me down . One thing I will say is there are a lot of opinions about diabetes out there, and it can be a very daunting prospect for those newly diagnosed . However it shouldn't stop you achieving anything you want to. Technology is such these days that almost anything is possible. The only piece of advice I will give is take your blood sugar regularly , it is the only way you can start to control your diabetes ,. Nice to meet you all look forward to some good convos and maybe a good laugh along the way

    Three words to describe my personality: friendly, cynical, loves to share humour and daftnesses

    Pets: indoor fish, outdoor fish and Brian the rescue cat - Big Beautiful Brian/Brian the Brute

    Apple

    Sport? I walk, swim, and used to ride - prefer being outdoors amongst green things to watching sport

    Angry? Moi? From time to time, but don't like confrontation so it's usually a response to tales of human behaviour and/or the News

    Pierced ears - just the one in each

    Oh goodness, hard to pick favourites, depends on mood. A few I listen to often are Murray Peria, Queen, Ladysmith Black Mumbazo, Anna, Ella Fitzgerald

    Music genre - no favourite, but I enjoy classical, blues, jazz, soul, . . .

    Favourite flag? I'm worried by the recent rise of nationality as xenophobia but have warm feelings about the Greek flag (lovely Greek friends), the Native Australian flag, and the peace symbol on a flag

    Camping? Yes, though the last time I realised that knees without cartelidge don't make for easy arising from the sleeping bag!

    Love? Oh yes

    Fake tan? Yes, in younger more body-conscious days

    Countries visited: I've been lucky! France, Holland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Luxumburg, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Croatia, Turkey, Jordan, Greece, Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Malaysia, The Maldives, Bonaire, Curacao, Canada and the USA

    Favourite City? No best place, but I really like Patras, Quebec, Lisbon and Valencia

    5 TV programmes: Dateline (it's not what you think but what you think), any about design and art if done well, Have I Got News for You, The Vicar of Dibley, MASH

    Films: Dr Strangelove, Amelie, anything by Tati, In the Heat of the Night, and I wish I could remember the title of the one I saw two months ago!!!!!

    Wealthy? Nah - travelled when we had 2 incomes or went to work in a place

    Work? Retired

    Subjects studied: in formal education the usual 'o' and 'A' levels, English and History at Uni - outside formal education, whatever I'm interested in at the time

    Like most: ability to be happy with very little as long as there are green leaves and good friends

    Like least? Plagued by bad memories when blood sugars low
