        18 weeks for scan wow, well hope it comes through sooner. How are you coping generally? Life gets in the way sometimes I find, was ok when off sick but now back at work a little harder to manage. Especially with other peoples advice lol.

      hi debbie, thanks for getting back to me, new to this too, ive only seen your message now! i wasnt feeling well for the last 18 months or so and developed like a wrinkling of the skin on my temples, i was also feeling like i had a hangover in the mornings and had a dry mouth, my blood sugar had been 47 for just over 2 years and the doctor never told me i was prediabetes,

        Hi I was also unwell for some time and cant believe how much better I feel now, scary though. I have a few issues with the gp too. Luckily kidneys good. Having MRI for eyes just as a double check as id had such probs with them. Have you got an apt yet?
