    So today I took my insulin and injected in the left side of my tummy at 9am. Had breakfast and went to work at 11:30am. Just before 12, I heard my gut wanting to go toilet and I went just fine, then a few seconds later it was runny and ended up with pain in my gut on the left side again. Back at home now after getting in touch with 111 and they said that they would get my doctor to phone me at 12:40pm and it's now 1pm with no phone call.

    This has been going on for 2-3 weeks now. Kept it under control with Imodium from the pharmacist, but now that has failed me today.
