    Influenza A knocked the stuffing out of me this year, two rounds of isolation at the hospital and because I’m asthmatic 40 mg of Prednisolone was added to the boiling pot to ‘allow’ me to heal in peace with a long ease off to continue, hope I will see much improvement as I rebuild 10% body lost body weight, and energy into my legs for walking
    Pred of course effects MmoL the mind, weight and... much much more. 6 weeks in and I’m still on 40mg Pd.
    Anyways, yesterday and today, I feel almost human (12 days after leaving hospital.
    To celebrate weight gain and enthusiasm to be out and about I cooked up a hot stew, packed my bags and set off bus bus walk, spent an before settling down by a Bird Hide to munch my lunch.
    Sterilise hands, finger prick - ouch, nicely done, but it’s hi, way way hi...

    All set to take my insulin...wait, where’s the needles? !!!
