    It is my understanding that this neighborhood thread has prime real estate topics for sale. Therefore, I am relocating here effective immediately and will pay my mortgage in test strips, which sadly are available on a black market in the US due to their astronomical prices outside of insurance coverage plans.

    Watch out for the reset, as we'll be changing the brand on those strips.

    Welcome , young man. I am sure that your FBG results will improve very quickly here. A shift in gear sort of thing.

    Hey....hello you lot. I'm pleased to see we have a lovely new home. This morning my blood glucose was a healthy 4.8 fasting. I'm ok with that number. Had my eye screening this morning too. How long does it take for these darn drops to completely wear off? I've got my sunglasses on right now, which admittedly makes me feel like a rock star. Wearing them indoors as I'm lying down, TV on, iPad & nibbly things to hand (salted popcorn is my treat today.) One is allowed to self indulge when one is a tad delicate. :happy:

    So now that it has been established that we can discuss anything, I've decided to forgo the expense of weekly therapy to unpack all of my luggage in this virtual lounge. Let's begin with Phase One. Unresolved Childhood Conflicts. Just kidding. Kind of.

    Uncle @Pasha I want to sign up for toilet training, because as many times I try training in the toilet, it seems too small to fit my treadmill in ;-)

    You may submit a request for an exemption re the PPBG, no promises though.
