      I had the tslim butbecause of my low basal rate it wasn't working for me. Too many lows on this pump. It sucks that I have a low basal profile as it leaves my options of pumps limited. For some their cgms work great and for others they don't. Really weird.

    An old git just living life...

    An HGV Driver, carrying hazardous goods, (extremely flammable/explosive gasses), working far too many hours.

    A keen shooter winning many gold medals in competitions, but also like a bit of hunting, mostly night hunting, its not about killing something, i do eat what i shoot, and many nights i will sit there watching the nightlife in the quiet and be quite happy not to shoot, its just relaxing.

    Enjoy my motorcycle, waiting for hood weather
