    My DSN has says I am managing so well she doesn't think she needs to see me, although her door is always open.

    Reducing the steroids am now down to 13mg heading towards 10mg. Reducing the humulin, started at 22, now 13. Most days don't need the novorapid.

    Steroids are weird. A day or so after I reduce the dose I suddenly get a huge spike. It's like they are just trying to stick it to you.

    DSN says to keep the libre whilst I am on insulin. Managed to source one from asda today.

    My best Christmas present was from my husband who told me my face had changed. Now it looks a little chubby as opposed to looking as though I am blowing up an invisible balloon.
