    Thank you Connie104 The move went almost smoothly, except Somewhere some how a whole bashful of drugs went missing, My ENTIRE MONTHS Supply of all my drugs except my CONTROLLED DRUGS are missing, almost all my Pain Relief is GONE !!!

    I am in so much pain right now. .... And over the next couple of days I will post about the trouble we have had getting a cooker so we could have Hot Food, Let's just say that CURRYS are a heartless Maajor Company who broke their promise and verbal contract and then Blacmailed a dying man into buying a cooker he didn't want, was more expensive and was the only option to get hot cooked food Before the 28th of December, ,

    Anyway Connie104. MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    With Love and Best Wishes.

    KEVIN AND WENDIE.

    hi Kevin, do you live in Leicester, i ask because that's where I come from originally, and I think I saw you were once a nurse there on one of your posts,, I was also a nurse at the LGH and LRI, in the good old days lol. I wonder if our paths have crossed before.best wishes Christine xx

    Kman, you have a new reader here. I was diagnosed a year ago and was told to lose weight so my blood sugar reading would go down. For some reason I still feel in a bubble and have put weight on instead. The nurse has threatened to put me on meds next time I go back but I'm adamant I don't want to go on meds...so why am I still being stupid and eating the wrong stuff?

    I have a tester I bought and used at first but what was the point in testing if I don't know what to do with it? I need a great big kick up the rear and have found your posts are making me think seriously for the first time. What was your first sign of things going wrong besides the high sugar readings?

    Chatterbox. Thank you for your post, I'm glad you are at Least thinking about how your future may pan out,

    My heart symptoms are hard to remember, the stroke left many gaps in my memory, but over time I had problems with very very excessive v e trips to the toilet, LIVE had problems with sweating, and at the same time my breathing got bad, again probably due to the onset of Diabetes, and even some of the complications at that early stage, things . Like Asthma was also starting to cause problems, and even then my mobility, and early signs . Onset of Arthritis showed up,

    I'm sure there was much more, I'll try to remember and get to you then, but please Don't Panic, but YOU MUST TEST, starting now, PLEASE, not for me but for you, listen to the nurse, seek her and your Diabetic Care teams advice, you've seen the worst that can happen. .... that's ME !

    I'm trying to get round to another big post, but I'm. Still in chaos and such awful pain, stick around, it will be of value, I Promise,

    Best Regards.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    KEVIN

    Thanks Kman. I appreciate how difficult it must be for you. I had arthritis as a child and I'd rather not go back there! Please stick around and post when you can. I wish I could see you in person to give you a thank you (gentle) hug.
