    Thank you. It's a weird morning as I'm waiting for it to not be too early to call her, in case she barely slept either. But I did a whole lot of research while I didn't sleep, so hopefully I'll be of some use to her today...!

    More hugs from me and a song for you to listen to while waiting for the right time to ring her. I always enjoy reading your posts.

    Even better with butter added so it's just melting into the potato. :)

    @ziggy_w @Brunneria @Longlife @DCUKMod @Pipp

    Thank you for your warm welcome back. :) :)

    @hankjam It sounds like you and I have been on the same detour over the past few months (in my case it has been a year). Just got to find those good low carb habits again.

    I think I proved a point to myself.... no matter how low my finger prick or HbA1c tests go, I am and always will be diabetic. :banghead::confused:

    Hi. I've not been here since September 2018.. (got diagnosed in july 2018 i think cant really remember) I still can't get my head round being disbetic.. im still running.. I stopped doing my bloods, stopped my medication & won't go to doctors...
    I feel pressured ... do this, do that,don't eat this, dont eat that.... i know I'm unwell but untill I can get my head straight about it, I guess I'm rebelling... anyway not to carry on winging, I'm still here & reading... bye

    Don't disappear!
    Your reaction to diagnosis is the same as many have had. Early days, get rebellion out of your system first, then apply what you are reading here to your own circumstances.

    Not sure who the 'do gooders' are. So guessing I could be one.;):bag:
    Sure we'll still be here if and when you want to engage. Glad you are reading, and hope you continue to do so.
    Happy and healthy new year wishes to you, too.

    That is the great thing about this forum. I just read it for years before joining and even when I joined didn't post for the first year.

    We will still be here when you are ready

    Bought some cheddar with ginger at a local food market some weeks ago in a vacuum pack and finally had some yesterday - it was delicious if a little strange. I suspect it may have been crystallized ginger but only teeny amounts.

    Hi @Chook,

    You've done it once, you can do it again. One step at a time. We are with you on this.

    I have to confess to two lots of Yorkshire puddings - but they are somewhat adapted to being lower carb - the milk is replaced by cream and water, there are three eggs and I use bread flour to increase the protein and only 3/4 the amount as it works better than the plain flour, and extra lard in the tins.
    They are thought to be superior to my mother's far more frugal recipe which I used for decades - so thank you diabetes for pushing me into making the alterations.
    I also ate roast parsnip and carrot, and other veges - but the mountain of roast potatoes did not tempt me. I have tasted them over the last year, just to check, and there is no attraction at all.
    I haven't had any chocolate in the house for some weeks, my carb 'hit' at the moment is a watermelon, the previous one a punnet of plums. The scale informs me that I need to watch out and cut back - that is the problem with improved sensitivity to insulin, which I think has happened for me - upping my carb intake is shown almost at once as an increase in weight. I always take that as the signal to take action even if it is just a few pounds as I have had so many bad experiences losing weight. Cutting carbs and seeing my weight start to decrease is always reassuring, but it doesn't stop the worry.

    I think I actually will stop posting for awhile. I have just read a very judgemental and chastising post directed at me by a moderator who has no knowledge at all of me or my life, but who made an assumption about me that was unfair and unwarranted.

    I replied, enlightening said moderator, and reported their post, but I'm still angry, and it's really put me off posting here.

    So I'm going to take a break. I don't come here to be jumped all over by someone who's supposed to moderate and, hopefully, be moderate.
